A couple of weeks ago [livejournal.com profile] mousewrites started [livejournal.com profile] coowipp, a community where writers could sign up and pledge to finish their WIPs in the month of August.

And, well, I did it.

I traditionally suck mighty donkey balls at making deadlines, and the only time I ever signed up for a Fuh-Q Fest I never finished the story. But I've been feeling a certain determination to get off my butt and finish the four or five stories that are all there in my head, and that I haven't gotten out on paper.

One reason I signed up was that I had a talk with one of my pals who did the Novel Writer's Month thing last year, and he really inspired me to try just slapping the damn words on the screen for once. It's not like I'm not going to go back and edit a hundred times anyway, and I think it might help me be, you know, actually productive.

Granted, productivity isn't my top goal when writing fan fiction. For that matter, fan fiction isn't currently dreadfully high on my goal list in general. But after two years of not finishing a single story, I think I've gotten to the point where I'd like to get back into the habit.

So, August it is. Wish me luck. :)
