Monday Madness: Original Fic

I know it's still Monday somewhere... but yes, I am running late! Better late than never they say (and we won't even mention what didn't happen with the Recs post for January...)



I want to thank yuidirnt for guest-hosting this post in January, while we're here! Thanks, Destiny, I appreciated your help, and I hope you'll come back and host again soon! ;-)

Now, what's new? January's been and gone, so how is your Original fic for Feb shaping up? Got anything new in the works, or planning to finish an old WIP?

Are there any things that you guys would like to discuss in any of the upcoming Original fic posts? I'm open to suggestions on what we could get into some more in-depth discussions over, be it to do with the writing itself or with research, useful communities, thoughts on your stories, or even practical help and advice on the nitty-gritty of publishing/marketing or how much money you might make. Let me know in comments, and I'll try to schedule things!

I'm also happy to take requests from anyone wanting to guest-host or tell us about themselves and their writing process here in the entries to come, so don't be shy! Introduce yourselves if you're new, or ask me (or other writers/everyone in general) some questions!

I'd love to see how many original writers we have in our midst too, so please put up your hand whether you have commented in an Original Fic Monday post before or not! ;-)
