Hello lovelies,
yes i know i am indeed late, my parents dragged me off to meet some friends before i got to go home and game my way into the new year whilst sitting the cat- need to go and find her again once i finished this check-in post :D"".

First I want to apologise for not hosting MORE challenges, my life got really out of control, and my missmanagement made itself evident- sorry, that it also inconvenienced you!

Second I want to ask you about feedback for something:
As you know this comment gets very little traffic nowadays, and I find it somewhat sad... the write-a-thon was a huge success in way of ppl signing-up for it (sadly the puffs didn't show up, but maybe they will in the future?)
my idea would be a year long write-a-thon for HP-fandom; so you could combine it with things like gywo and other communities but only the words written towards HP-fandom would count. Then there would be monthly word-wars as we did in the past, and finishing a chapter, or a story grants you extrapoints during the word- war; and each word-war has a small challenge: a character, a prompt, a word count, you have to describe a scene in the most ridiculous/dramatic/actionlike way (basically all the challenges I prepared for this write-a-thon but did not manage to post).
and then in the end of the year there will be the house-cup; sign-up would be opwn all year and the points will be added together with weighted average.
Poll #2088405 Interested in that?

shall we have a monday resources? let's have a monday resources!

hello my fellow writers,
to another dose of writing info you might not need, desperately want, or never even expected to be there!


  • How to weave threads of Tension through your story this was really a good article, especially when you want to make it good in the angst department, but it also has good advice for simply keeping your readers hocked no matter the genre.


  • 7 Simple Hacks to Get Writing When You Just Can't is a short read obviously, and does not have a deep soul-searching purpose. these are just tricks that should empower you to get over the writers block you are having. and i for one found them rather useful.


  • My favorite writing cheat sheets is a list of cheat sheets the blogger uses and found helpful, i only skimmed two of them- character moods of emotions, which IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. and Character Traits chart- which on the other hand was very helpful, so it may help you too.
    also the same blogger did another one of these cheat-sheets list to be found here.



all the best! see you again soon hopefully ;)
may the muses be with you!
and remember all words are good words (even the words that are gone due to edition!)



do you want more tips on one certain topic that i so far completely ignored? (i am posting here what catches my fancy in hope to motivate you to get words down- so if you have something you need to know or read or be motivated on, let me know and i shall dig around the net trying to find something for you)
do you have a tip you want to share, but are thinking: "meh"- just pm me or write me a mail smirkingcat[at] yandex. com and i shall check it out and include it in a future post [with your name or without it]

Welcome to the Sign Up post for the first seasonal-Comment-a-Thon!!!!



How it works:

  • You will sign up for your Hogwarts house.

  • Commenting Period is from October 15th (starting hp_creatures' Halloween-Fest) - December 31st
    HOWEVER: all comments in HP-Fandom count.

  • On January 1st a "check-in" - post will go online, where you will tell us the amount of comments you managed

  • For the House-cup to be fair, because I do not believe that every house will have even participants, all the numbers will be added together and then divided by the number o people in the house, so that the house average will be what decides the house-cup. I believe this shall give every house a fair run and possibility for the win!

  • The overall Best and the house-best is just the plain number.

  • Those who forget to report in, can not be considered, HOWEVER the check-in post will go UP way before the first hits Australia and will close down at MIDNIGHT the 2nd ECT (that is European Central TIME) so "first" here is really a lose term that shall give you ample time to check in and let us know how amazing you did.

  • Sign-ups are open until December 1st and the Challenges will be open until December 31st.

  • I just hope we will have great fun!

About the spread-sheet:
When you sign up, you get "viewing rights" to the spread-sheet as to not change anything in the original thing, that i sent out to everyone. You are then able to download it or make a copy of it to your own drive.
There is a picture about that behind the cut. But if you have any questions, troubles, or it doesn't work for you, please, please feel free to contact me! i promise, we will work something out, i don't give up on anybody, and i do not plan to start with that now ;)

My deepest apologies everyone, I know comment-a-thon sign ups are supposed to go up today, but I wont manage that, RL is too busy and important to me right now, and yes it is my own fault, i overbooked myself!


Sign ups will go online on WEDNESDAY!


I hope that will work for you as well as for me, please forgive the rescheduling and stay excited and tuned for the sign up!

Also Sign ups for the Write-A-Thon are still open, and Hufflepuff house could really do with some reinforcement ;)!

Great Monday to everyone!
