picture of Pixar's Dory with the text: just keep writing, just keep writing

Keep writing! Dory's not sure what's happening, but she's sure it's gonna be great.

Years and years and more years reading fanfic. All the porn. Or pr0n, as it was called back in the day. And I still can't get used to how they keep saying their partners' names during the act. Repeatedly. Like it's some sort of sex mantra. It's weird, is what it is! @_@

-something else, which I will tell you all about

There was a "describe your creative process in a gif" meme going around twitter last month -- what would your entry be? (Credit and/or describe the gifs if you can, but I'm not actually the gif police. If you can't use gifs, feel free to use text to describe Cher and Dee freaking out on the highway or quote a Kardashian or whatever.)

This summer I am getting all the visits! Cousins and cousin's exes and old old friends and my mom! Okay, so mom visits every summer, but the others not so much. It's lovely to get all these guests, but also a wee shock to my introvert hermit's system. The cats love it, begging for snacks and affections shamelessly. They get the latter, but not the former on account of vet's orders. Poor sods.

The annual St Olav festival is soon upon us, I should get moving on the ticket purchases. Am feeling lazy, though. Tomorrow. Maybe.

The new Spiderman movie is glorious. I have now seen it three times at the cinema, and it was worth all those three times. It brought the fun and laughs back to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), something it desperately needed after Captain America: Civil War kinda broke the Avengers. (Like the Hulk kinda broke Harlem.) The new Spiderman is so precious. A 15 year old kid, not elegant, not smooth, zero game, utter dork and super sweet. I just want to put him in my pocket, take him home and feed him. The interaction with Tony Stark is also great, and I am very much relieved that it was just enough, not too much. This is Spiderman's movie, after all. And the bad guy, Michael Keaton, oh my word. Fantastic! He's becoming more and more Jack Nicholson-like, in a very good way. The Vulture is a bad guy we can understand and sympathise with, unlike Ultron and Thanos and Red Skull and such. The Vulture is an unpowered human with a very honest grudge, a real background; like the Kindpin from the Daredevil TV series - but more likeable! There are of course also a ton of candy for the fans. I don't follow the comics, but I have seen all the movies and TV series since 2008. And I have read metric craptonnes of fanfic. So yes, I get to notice lovely little non-plotty fan candies, like Principal M*****. ♥

It's time to sign up for the August WIP challenge!

Some people join the challenge midmonth, or comment on check-in posts without signing up, which is fine -- I'm glad there's a way for the challenge to be useful in a variety of ways.

But for those of you who find the commitment of signing up useful, please leave a comment with the below information.

Signups will be open until the end of July.



  • Level of challenge: 1 chapter, 1000 words, 1 fic finished, whatever you like
  • Fandom(s) involved: if you know at this point
  • What you're looking for from the challenge: this could be as vague or specific as you like: someone to be accountable to, someone to remind you to write, someone to bounce ideas off, etc.
  • What you could offer other participants yourself: ditto!
  • How people should contact you: DW message, e-mail, IM etc.
  • Time zone: useful for seeing who might be up for a writing session at a time convenient to you


Copypaste below:



I couldn't continue to run this challenge without assistance with the daily check-in posts. Many thanks to everyone who's helped with the check-ins before!

Please let me know if you'd be interested in helping out. A week per person would be ideal (I usually assign weeks running Sunday-Saturday just for consistency). I'm happy to help come up with suggestions for discussion topics (& Friday or Saturday is usually the general chat/snippet/beta-seeking etc. post).

(& if you've completed a fic through the challenge, don't forget our collection on AO3! If you need AO3 invites, let me know.)
