SEPTEMBER WIP PUSH!!!!

It's time for the big push, peeps! Get out the WIP you're working on for the next twenty-five days and start your engines! You have until the 25th to finish writing your WIP of choice. How many words you do in a day is entirely up to you, but the aim of this challenge is to finish something you've had in progress for too long. If you finish one and you want to move on to another that's perfectly okay too!

The rules are these:

1) It must be something that you have started before Septembere.
2) It must be at least 2,000 words when finished (or the graphic equivalent).
3) It must be posted and linked to the comm by 1 minute past midnight on the 26th Eastern Standard Time. However we will allow that if you are having your work beta read, it must be to the beta by that time, then posted and linked before the end of 30th.
4) There is no 4th rule.


There will be prizes, and accolades!


CRACK THAT WIP!

I've got 4 WIPs that will easily work for this, especially since one of them is already 3500 words long.

Now I just have to decide which to do.

Start with the one closest to the end and work backwards, that's my theory!

Oh man, you just made me realize Nanowrimo is approaching... I usually start my planning in September already or I'll end up wasting all of November outlining stuff instead of actually writing it!

It's a goal I have all year, to add more to my 300 wips (half of those probably posted already)

I'll see if I find something I can finish this month :D

300 wips

And I thought my WIP folder containing 78 files was a lot... good luck working on your stories!

I'm sitting on four, so maybe Five will be inspired to finish at least one of them.

I'm in!

I've got one that I started at the end of June that has stalled out on me. Hopefully, this will help get the muse back on track.

Does the next installment of an unfinished series count? I usually tend to post them as works in a series rather than chapters as they tend to fulfill various bingo or challenge prompts.

If you started it before September and it's more than 2k, it completely counts!

Yay! Just the push I need! I have the perfect story I need to finish! It's already 8609 words and I'm probably not even halfway finished. That will help my word count and it will help me get in gear and finish that story that has taken much longer than needed! :D

Okay, so I actually have more than one...hundreds, really, but my Once and Again story is what I'll start working on and we'll see how many I can finish!

The WIP push is all the good things.

And just.. one at a time. YOU CAN DO THIS!

no guarantees with school going on but i will TRY to get something worked on.

i'd really like it to be chapter 12 of Hand of Wrath but who knows with my muse :eyeroll:

i also have a handful of scattered oneshots that have been started.

Wrath is way over 2K words (currently 45,103 according to FFN) and I imagine the started one-shots will be at least 2K each. I can't seem to write short anymore unless I specifically call it a drabble :P

I don't feel like I want to post a completely new post for my completed wip, so I'm leaving a link here :D

The story was posted 2 years ago, had then 3383 words.

Completed quite early this month (but not posted until today), is now 7572 words :D

Link to the story
