September is WIP push!

Well hello there!

It turns out that September's monthly challenge is a WIP push, and it will be our last one of this calendar year. Typically, I set up a post for every 9 hours to hit you up to add some words to your works-in-progress in an effort to get them finished. I know that this doesn't work for everyone, so I'm wondering what you'd all like to see in a WIP push? What gets you charged up to break back into projects you've been pushed to the back-burner?

I was hoping to also post something each week for people who don't have WIPs (I don't know how that happens, but I'm sure someone somewhere must) and for graphics folks that are themed toward finishing things up. But if you do fall into the WIPless catagory, what would you like to see?

September is fast approaching, and I want all the WIPs done by the end of it! Imagine the count on that!!

I think it might be helpful to try some "WIP Push Word Wars" one day each week in the month. Several of us had a lot of fun with word wars a few weeks back. I'd be up for running either a Thursday or Friday night round (like 9pm eastern/1am UTC) each week in September.

If you agree, maybe we can see what times work for others, and if another round or two could be held at another/other points in the day?

Just a thought. We definitely found that the whole 'let go and just write, right now!' thing worked pretty well. It took me a week, maybe, to polish and publish what I churned out during those words wars, but each time they did lead to finished words for me!

You know me, I'm easier than Sunday morning. Word wars sound awesome, and they did make me write too!

Word wars work for me.That’s what I was going to suggest. Since I’m in EST that time works for me too.

if giving a book final edits qualifies for being pushed as a WIP, then I'm definitely in. I have 1 I can give a final edit to, and another I can give a first edit to...but I don't know if I can get through both of them ;)

I can't say how much I will get done (school!) but I'm working on a deleted scenes series from "The Hand of Wrath" so that'll be my WIP. Here's to get some words on it :)

Love the Word Wars suggestion, even if I always seem to miss them due to timezones.

My ongoing epic needs some love, as does the new 60k+ word fic I intend to start for a big bang!

Awesome! The more the merrier!

And you know I'll be in. TOO MANY WIPs hanging around.

Word wars would be great, but they need to be weekendy for me to join in, so I may have to run one myself! I'll get planning.

I also think a weekly post about how we're doing, if anyone needs help, or just needs some encouragement along the way would be helpful. Of use?

I LIKE these ideas!!

I’m going to participate because I got re-energized about fandom and have a ton of WIPs lying around. I’m available to run a word war (or a general “get shit done” push, if we want to call it that) on a weekday 2 PM EST or earlier, if that works for anyone else.

That's awesome, if you can do some afternoons EST, I can do some evenings EST. Maybe some folks could host at times more useful in other parts of the world? Any volunteers???!!! :) :) :)

I finally went through my Google Drive - I have two standalones that are WIPs including my NaNoWriMo from 2012 and 2 series that I should wrap up - But I also have quite a few icon projects that I'd like to finish up so willing to host word wars or whatever we call them on weekends (PST) or maybe afternoon/evenings.

I'll post tomorrow, asking to schedule some word wars for different time zones and such!
