I'm at 30000 words with two gaps in the middle that are basically '[more stuff here]' and no sign of an ending. I often stumble on endings, so I'm not as worried about that as I might be otherwise. I mean, I am worried, but I might find an ending another thousand words along. Or not. The gaps worry me a lot more because I have no idea at all what needs to go in there.

I'm mainly worried that the combination of length, timing, fandom, and subject matter means I won't find a beta reader. I'm not as worried about SPaG as I am about consistent characterization, finding unfired Chekov's guns, etc., and all of that is vastly more time consuming for a beta reader and generally harder than SPaG.

All done! :)

Quick question: Can I upload it as a draft now, for purposes of (further) proofreading, to my AO3 account; then, during the posting period, add the IIBB tag(s) to it?

I had a breakthrough yesterday and my fic started to resemble something, finally. Yay! I'm still missing an ending, and the story needs plenty of rewriting, but I will have something done by the deadline.

I am over half! It's not going to be as long as I liked, and my id took me for a walk, since a whole lot has been happening in this fic, except the kink it had been named after for a working title.

Would it be okay to post this as IIBB, and then later post a sequel to it, when not IIBB-ing?

Still banging away at both fics. One is around half done and already nearly 5k, and the other has two finished sections, and tentative plans for the other three, I just need to sit down and do terrible things to the ladies.

25,000 words and panicking, honestly, but still hoping to get it written by the 15th...

Well I've decided on a fandom XD It's going to be a rush to the finish line for me, but I'll let you know if I need an extension

I'm going to have to drop out, I'm afraid. There was moving and dealing with parents and I am drained.

Still sitting at zero, but at least I've got two weeks and some kind of idea (and better health to help make it happen).

I'm gonna have to pull out. :( My fic's still nowhere near done—turns out there's a lot more of it left to write than I thought.

It needs some more content, but at least I'm done transcribing it and I've fixed the emotional plot arc a bit. (I've been playing with the general idea behind the fic for most of a year now, so there was one scene that fit early on that I'd written back in late May; adding it in helped a lot.)

I might finish? It's looking really rough.

I'm possibly at the point where I should drop out, but don't want to. I'm pretty sure i can finish one fic if not two like I'd planned, but I'll bookmark that link about asking for extensions just in case.

1. Femslash Reylo sex pollen: I'm almost at 5k! I am feeling really confident on this one.

2. Femslash Reylo with fem!kylo fpreg: It keeps growing more scenes that absolutely have to be written. I've got a bit of a hydra situation going on here. Every new scene I write sprouts off three more thrown all across the fic. This is turning into something a lot more sprawling than anything I've written before (which is to say, it's not a one-shot). There are so many gaps in the plot, and what it is growing into is something I am not sure I can finish by posting time, which is concerning for me. On the up side, I am having a blast writing it.

Sadly I'm going to have to drop out. I haven't written anything and it's getting way too close to my needing to give my entire brain to Yuletide.

Still working! I have a few hundred words written now, and a MUCH more solid idea of the plot!

Now up to 1.9k and nowhere near finished, woo :P At this point I think it's a matter of drastically trimming my expectations and posting the rest as a sequel/series later on, since I have too much Real Life going on atm to be able to marathon out a longfic (probably).

Alternately: what is the mod's/mods' opinion on switching fics partway through? 'Cause my brain decided now is a great time for the Harry Potter scene I've been batting around for a few months to expand into a proper fic, and it's... fairly iddy. And already at 800 words.

This was backburnered for the past several weeks while I worked on other things, but I pulled it out this weekend and had a writing marathon on it. I finally have a plausible explanation for how the characters ended up in this relationship (beyond "author didn't want to use an OC and this was the only canon character that could make the dynamic work"), and the plot's pulling together. Hopefully I'll be done drafting and moving onto editing soon.

From: [personal profile] ghostwings
I've technically reached the required wordcount, but the fic still has a good chunk left to write, and I'm at a point in my writing process where I hate my story and I hate even looking at it.

On the plus side, I hammered out 10k words for a completely unrelated story this long weekend while procrastinating on finishing my bang fic. Priorities!

I still haven't actually managed to write the really good iddy portion of this fic. It's just not coming out! :P (At least I'm mostly through the angst.)

Well, I still have time, I guess.

That, or if I can find another suitably-iddy idea, I could always start from scratch. One week-and-change to go, woo!
