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.)

Title: The Power of a Smile
Author: Eustacia Vye
Author's e-mail: eustacia_vye28@hotmail.com
Pairing: Draco/Ginny
Rating:
Notes: This is written for the 2017 D/G Forum Exchange on FF.net, but Real Life conspired so that I wasn't actually part of the exchange. So I just grabbed a prompt to write, because it's been aaaaaaaaaaaaages since I've written these two together.
Prompt: Ginny has been put under a curse of some kind. Draco is the only one who can break it. Feel free to go a little off-canon with the magic here, because the curse should be enduring in some kind of way. In other words, something bigger and harder to break than a Leg-Locker Curse, for example. More on the lighthearted side rather than something dark, but there can be serious moments as well.
Summary: Ginny thought she was good enough to avoid curses while working as an archaeologist. When cursed, she needed the help of the best curse breaker to get her sight back. Her brother was too upset to do it, so his assistant Draco Malfoy had to step up to do the job.

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.)

Wednesday Discussion - Errors, brought to us by the Fanfic Flamingo: Sometimes errors occur as we write that we miss until later, and then it's a huge burden to try to go back and repair the damage.  Does this happen to you?  How do you deal with it, and how do you prevent it?

Quote from Anais Nin

Name: Destiny

Age: 26. Though I'll be 27 this year.

Location: Northern Louisiana

About Me: I started writing when I was around 10 years old though I'm sure I had always dreamed of doing it before then. I wrote intensely for awhile, but then I quit for almost ten years probably due to my ongoing battle with mental health issues. I picked writing back up in 2011 and excepting some interludes I've written steadily since then.

About My Journal: I use my journal as a sort of hodge podge of things. I've been known to post pictures (from selfies to paintings I'm viewing). I post a lot of music and my video post tag is usually used in conjunction with YouTube videos. They almost always have something to do with music. These days I use my journal to either analyze my relationships with the important people in my life or vent about the aforementioned mental health issues.

What I Write: My main output over the past months has been poetry. When I write fiction it's usually realism based. I like to write about relationships. These can include family, romantic, or friendship.

What I Don't Write: I don't really write journalism though it is something I would like to explore one day.

What I Read: Currently I've been reading a lot of nonfiction especially in relation to astrology, tarot, and numerology. My favorite genre is historical romance though I've been going through a bit of funk with it at the moment. I also love to read contemporary erotic romance.

What I Don't Read: I don't really read horror or science fiction though I would like to broach these genres one day.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I would like to think so. I've become more confident in my editing skills, but I have issues with reading longer works.

wickedlittletown: (Default)

Name: Goldy

Age: Somewhere in the late twenties

About Me: Writing is one of the few hobbies that have always been a part of my life. I like way too many things and I am easily entertained so there are times when I jump from one fandom into another. Besides from fandoms I love history and musicals (returning topics in my writings too).

About My Journal: Most of the time I write about my writings and the ideas I have in my head. But you will always find the normal everyday entries here and random stuff like various questionairs, memes and so on. And this journal is still a backup of my livejournal account so there can be entries which are nearly the same (because I am not into crossposting).

What I Write: I am that kind of write that loves to write sad stories, whenever I have a good idea for one. In general I am mostly writing slash. Usually I write fanfictions but every now and then I also find myself working on something original.

What I Don't Write: School stories and stories about children (you know happy family stories).

What I Read: Thriller and crime, followed by everything about history.

What I Don't Read: Romantic books, love stories or as I like t say it "typical women's books". But also nothing about the topics where I don't write for.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Yes and I have done a lot of betareading a couple of years ago. It was a ot of fun but it was also the time where I wasn't that busy with my own writings so I could take my time and do it carefully.

Sunday Discussion (via Fanfic Flamingo) - Does your writing brain work overtime when it's next to impossible to write it all down?  What are some ways you deal with inspiration that comes in the night or while you are driving, or at some other time when you aren't in your usual writing place?
