While we have a moment of downtime, here is my holiday gift to you, my dearest f-list! If you want a special holiday drabble, leave a comment here, and I'll make you one sometime in December. Only stipulation is that if you had one written by me last year, you may have to wait to get one this year until the first-time prompts are filled.

Holiday Word Prompt:

Love to you all; you brighten my days!

NOTE: [ profile] accioslash, yes, please sign-up! Actually, this goes for all of you.

This is mostly just for me to keep track of everything.

November and December )

And, of course, mod duties for [ profile] discusshpfic!

starduchess: (starduchess)
How do I get myself into these situations?

October and November )

Am I forgetting anything?

And, of course, that's all on top of my mod duties for [ profile] discusshpfic !


so busy!

Ack! So much to do in October! )

Cliche Fest starts Saturday! Anyone who guesses which entry is mine will receive a drabble!

And, no, Accio and Torino, you two don't count!

starduchess: (floored)
So, I participated in the inaguaral meeting of [ profile] firewhiskeyfic last Friday night. I did not get a chance to stay drunk and write the Snape/Hermione drabble I was thinking about doing because both my kids were being impossible about falling asleep. By the time I got up again, it was after midnight and I had lost my tipsy-ness. I did write three haikus, however, all of them useful for any Gryffindor/Slytherin pairing.

Hopefully I'll have an easier evening next month!

Okay, an update on my writing. I finally made it through the first whole scene!

2500 / 10000 words. 25% done!

I have notes set up and even some of the ending scenes written up not included in the word meter, but I definitely need to ramp up production. I have three weeks before my own deadline.

[ profile] keppiehed , would you like to begin editing now, or wait till I'm all done?

Anyone else want to beta-read? It's Snarry, NC-17, MAJOR angst. Just comment below or PM me.

New word counter for my Snarry Swap fic. 10K is just a guesstimate. I have no idea how long this will be.

I set my deadline on Nov 14 so that I have a good solid month for the betas to check it and make rewrites before submission. That still leaves almost two months to write, and if I don't post this now, I'll just keep putting it off.

1405 / 10000 words. 14% done!
starduchess: (phoenix)
So, I am now a co-mod for the Harry Potter discussion community, [ profile] discusshpfic , and I would love to see you all join me over there!

Each month has a theme. First one was Snarry and we had some good comments made about the stories. Last month was rare-pairs, but there was a huge drop-off in activity for lots of reasons. Hopefully we can pick things up again this month with femmeslash.

Whoohoo! It's finished! At least the first draft and I've already started some minor edits. Now my betas can begin working on this monster!

11305 / 11300 words. 100% done!

It's all dialogue too, except for the sex but even then I tried to add some speech. hehehe Hermione babbles....

starduchess: (Default)
Okay, the percentage count doesn't look like I've done much because the word count went up again. Good news, I got the whole smex scene done! YAY! Bad news, I way overshot the word count and I still have the morning after (will be very short I promise) and first scene to go back and extend.

11170 / 12000 words. 93% done!

You betas are in trouble. Will definitely finish writing it tomorrow, and then we can all begin editing it!

I'm tired. Headed home!
starduchess: (Default)
Oh, good grief. I'm fully into the smex scene now and it's going to be long! I've doubled the word count from where I thought I was going with this fic in the beginning. My poor betas. At least I got that extension!

8950 / 10000 words. 90% done!

And, there's still the morning after scene, which will be very short, and to go back and fix the first scene. Bleh. [ profile] keppiehed was right in that this has been a journey for me. I've never written anything this long! I hope it's believable and flows well.

Going home now.
starduchess: (Default)
Okay, so I've got the first three major scenes and am now finally getting to the smex scene! Yay! I keep having to up the word count though.

6770 / 8000 words. 85% done!

starduchess: (Default)
This is the word count from a few nights ago. I'm having work and home issues that preempt writing.  I only wrote maybe another 200-300 last night.

3400 / 7000 words. 49% done!

I am taking today and tomorrow as vacation from work to write. Hopefully I can get it all done, but the more I think on it, the longer it gets! I might have to ask for an extension. I'll know by Monday.

starduchess: (Default)
Update: Firmly into the second scene and it's longer than expected, so I've changed the total word count for the whole piece from 5K to 7K. Might pare that down a bit in editing but that's okay. Hope to finish that part today.

As of last night:

2370 / 7000 words. 34% done!


starduchess: (Default)
Okay, I got the first whole scene written, so things are moving!

1230 / 5000 words. 25% done!

starduchess: (Default)
I am trying to get some momentum for writing my Back to Hogwarts fest fic, so I am including a word meter to try to keep me on track. I am hoping to do 500 words a day. I don't know how long it will really be so I'm just going to aim for 5000 words. If the story happens in more or less, that's fine, I just need something to push me to keep going!

488 / 5000 words. 10% done!

That was for yesterday, btw.
