No, I'm not dead. I'm just really uninspired. I feel like it's been a such a loooong time since I've written anything. My boss happens to be out of town this week and I've got plenty of time on my hands at work. I used to do some of my best writing at work where it's quiet and I can shut my office door just to think. So here's where I need your help.

Give me an idea. A thought. A prompt. Make it as specific or as vague as you'd like, just throw it out there. Don't be shy. I could really use your help. I'd like to get in the habit of writing again but the plot bunnies really just aren't biting.

Thanks guys!

Oh, happy day for fanfic writers!

Today's Wall Street Journal has a front page article entitled "Rewriting the Rules of Fiction" about fanfiction and how it is increasingly becoming more mainstream. Not only is the article very interesting - it takes into consideration authors who both like and dislike the genre and writers of fanfic - but it also features shoebox_project ! The super-talented ladyjaida was interviewed. The equally talented dorkorific is mentioned. The general plot of my very favorite piece of on-going fanfiction is even detailed (except for Peter, poor Peter was somehow forgotten)! I am so excited!! I guess you know you're reading The Good Stuff when it ends up mentioned on the front page of the Wall Street Journal!

A link to the article is here: click me.

New communities, yay!  
Sep 10, 2006 11:33pm
In the past month I have joined two very interesting, new communities that I think deserve a little introduction.

amutualslurping is a Remus/Sirius community born of shoebox_project . All Puppy fics are welcome, but the mods are also serious Shoeboxers! They also welcome Shoebox fanfic (so, if you're keeping track that would be fanfic of a fanfic). Authors must submit a writing sample in order to be accepted to the community, so they are trying to keep the content above board. They are currently running their very first challenge "Oh-So Sweet: The Candy Challenge" through mid-October. I'm thinking there are several potential members *cough* reading this right now. Submit a fic to join! It will be so fun!!

magic_carrousel is strictly a challenge community. Be inspired by what started it all - each month the mod provides prompts in the form of text and dialog directly from the Harry Potter books. Entries must use any of the prompts in their original fics in any context. Fics can be any length, rating, or style. The September challenge is going on now and some of the prompts are really interesting. (No, I'm not partial because Silence won for the Saddest entry in August!)

I don't pimp much, but since these are both relatively new communities I thought I would throw in a good word. So check them out. Now. Go. Do it!

Title: Trouble
Pairing: Remus/Sirius
Rating: G
Word Count: 1290
Beta: mugglemomjsw
Disclaimer: JKR owns everything. I just play with her characters sometimes.
Author Note: There was a challenge. I started writing this and then I completely lost the tempo. I missed the challenge due date because I fail at finishing things under a deadline. I did find the tempo again, though.
Summary: Sirius really should learn to keep his mouth shut.

I’m in despair.Collapse )

Another meme - sorry, there's a point  
Aug 21, 2006 11:16pm
Once again, aquila_star is to blame for this one. I'll just use this to take the place of my usual I-try-to-be-monthly update. . .

If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fan fiction or NaNoWriMo or what have you, post exactly one sentence (or more) from each of your current work(s) in progress in your journal. It should probably be your favorite or most intriguing sentence so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don't mention anything else -- this is merely to whet the general appetite for your forthcoming work(s).

WIPsCollapse )

I'm really hoping this prompts me to write a bit more than just a drabble here and there. The lack of production is getting really pathetic. I did do a bit of editing and reviewing earlier this evening, so I guess that's a start.
