[mod post] One Week Wonder Check-in #1

Greetings everyone! This is your first check-in post for the One Week Wonder Challenge!

Commenting is not mandatory, but please let us know how it is going!

Are you finished with your story? Making progress? Having a last-minute panic? Have you written more words since the challenge started? Let us know!

Looking for motivation? We will be running one or more speed writing challenges tonight (west coast U.S. time). Want to participate in a speed writing challenge but need it at a different time? Comment and we will walk you through how to host your own on here!

Come on everyone! We can do it! *waves pom-poms* Whoo hoo!

[mod post] Announcing the One Week Wonder Challenge

Greetings omgspnbigbangers. It's that time of year where the clock is ticking down, somehow it's already the last week of April, and (if you're an author) your spn_j2_bigbang entry is due in just over a week. *gulp*

Don't Panic! You've got this, and we're here to help. How? Well, with the One Week Wonder challenge, of course.

Whether you're nearly done and just need to finish that epilogue, or you've got a beginning and end and a lot of holes to fill in along the way, or (like me) your original story totally stalled ajd you just came up with a new idea yesterday and you've got to hammer out a 20k draft this week, this is the challenge for you!

How does the One Week Wonder work?

-Check in posts will go up on Wednesday, April 26; Saturday, April 29; and Monday, May 1.
-There's no need to sign up, in advance, just start writing.
-Check your current word count
-Touch base with a comment on the 4/26 and 4/29 posts if you like to let us know how it's going and to cheer each other on.
-On May 1, check in with your final word count written during the challenge and let us know if you finished your draft.
-Awesome victory banners will go to everyone who a) finishes their Big Bang story draft, b) writes at least 20k words during the challenge, and c) writes the most words (top 3 places).

Any questions, or just want to check in? Comment on this post.

Already finished your draft? Great! Please cheer the rest of us on!

In the coming week your mods will also be running some speed writing challenges and posting a questions and answers post for those new(er) to the Big Bang to get your questions answered by those with more experience.

Sound good? Awesome!

Happy writing!

Pop Speedwriting/Editing Challenge

I’m going to be around tonight, between 10pm-12am ADT (Atlantic Daylight Time, UTC-3) trying to kick myself out of a writing block. In the past I’ve found speedwriting challenges helpful for that. At the start post, write as much as you can for a set block of time (30-45 minutes), take a short break to restock snacks and beverages, and do it again. For those who have finished writing, it could be a dedicated block of time to edit. Would anyone like to join me?
