Another hurricane. And another. And another. My heart is with you if you are in path of any of them. ... Hurricanes aside, what have you been doing today?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

A relevant question: How many different ways do you back up or save your writing for the long term?

I am going to use the Force here: You did notice that I missed a check-in for yesterday. *waves hand* There. Now! Let us continue. I will be your host for the rest of this month, and I look forward to ending September on a high note. What have you been doing today?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.

— Editing.

And a silly question to start things off: Do you do hand exercises at your keyboard before (or after) writing?

It's time to sign up for the October 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 September.



  • 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.)

Just a quick update!

Right now I'm on allegra d, anti-nausea medicine (that I've not been taking very much ohohoho), cough medicine, and I'm developing some kind of ear infection or something (the inside of my ear canal is swollen??? And the lymph node just behind my ear is also swollen, suggesting I'm fighting an infection, although that could just be from all the other sickness I've been dealing with) so yeah, physically I'm doing great haha.

Edit: And then I woke up this morning feeling 100x worse than what I felt like last night, ha ha ha wonderful.

Tonight is my first Spanish test and I'm 100% going to fail and you know, I've come to terms with it. I never do well on the first test of a class anyway. But this class gives me so much anxiety lmao it's ridiculous.

I'm just really unhappy now? And wondering if I can just drop all my classes but Spanish, since it's the only thing I need; all the rest were taken because they sounded interesting but I neither need them or nor their credits. I wonder what that would do for my financial aid. I guess I should check that out.

Edit x2: I did it. I got in touch with my advisor, the financial aid department, and my professors about withdrawing from elective classes. I've made the decision and I'm going to do it.
