Hurt me heal me

Once again, we're going for the hurt this week:

Loss of pet

I want a graphic or 100 words featuring someone who has lost their pet. A goldfish of glory, a tabby of terror, or a dookie sidekick that kicks no more. Do they try to bring the pet back to life, build a shrine, go to a support group? How do your peeps cope?

No rewards, no deadline, just hurt and healing!

October challenge

Title: when the moon is on the run
Author: helsinkibaby
Fandom: Unstoppable
Pairing: Frank Barnes/Connie Hooper
Rating: PG
Word Count: 5774
Summary: Frank meets Connie properly for the first time at the press conference. Turns out Triple-Seven's not the only unstoppable force he's going to have to deal with.

Notes:For the October challenge, I got the song "Spanish Harlem" by Ben E King and proceeded to write a fic that has little or nothing to do with the song... except that, IMO, it's a song about longing and falling for someone and not being sure how to go about getting them (this is where I read into it a little) and having watched "Unstoppable" at the start of the month, and being reminded that I ship Frank and Connie (who only meet at the end of the film!) this is what came out!

Hello, my writing peeps!

Just a quick question, and feel free to wipe me off the planet if this is the last thing any of you want to know about/discuss etc:

Is anybody contemplating taking on NaNoWriMo this year? I've thought about it in the past, but this year, I think I'm finally in a place where I can actually do this - even though it requires planning, and even worse, a plot.

It's just, I think I might need some encouragement, you know? Maybe somebody who can shoot me an email, or daily PM or something like that. A visual kick in the arse, as it were. I'm willing to return the favour, if needed! I know I can't spend all day on social media, cause that defeats the purpose of setting a writing goal, but as much as the family is behind me (meaning, in theory, but the reality is a different beast), you guys are my best bet for success, I think.

Also, does anyone know if bluespirit on AO3 is here on LJ? I need to contact her(?) and ask a question, but it doesn't need to be out there for all the world to read.

Ta - and many happy words to you all. :)

November Birthday!

And we only have one birthday for November, would you believe? As I've had a reminder to post early so that the people who have a birthday at the beginning of the month are sure to get something from those who need a little longer to get their creations organised, I'm getting this post up before November even begins!

Collapse )

So get your creating hats on! I'll post again on the 6th where you can link/post any gifts, and the birthday member can track the post to see their gifts as they arrive!

And please, anyone who wants to be in on the fun for next year, if you haven't already commented or would like to change anything in your wishlist before then, please go to this post to put up or amend your own one before too long! ;-)
