Monthly Check-In

It's that time again!  Two months down, one month left to go and we're asking you to check in.  Word counts, frustration, gnashing of teeth -- anything you'd like, just let us know you're still with us.

Comments

DONE!

With the last round of betas.

Edit: Topped out at 56,000 words of Shassi goodness.

Congrats! It feels good, doesn't it?

(Also, epic Psych slash? This makes me very, very happy:)
It's loooooooovely. Awesomecakes for sure.

And there needs to be more epic Psych slash *nods*
Or, you know, epic Psych fics period. Hopefully this will spawn a wave of folks participating next year:)

BTW, I didn't set the comments to screen automatically, because if I do, folks can't respond to them. If you'd like to screen your comments, however, feel free to do so (or let me know you'd like it and I'll do so.) Thanks!
*joins in happy flag waving*

The Ironside one is done too - being betaed right now :)

Poirot is at about 8k, but I'm working on that!

*counts, for fish*

Yay! And the Poirot one is pure bonus:)

I'm happy enough with unscreened comments. And it's nice to see what the others doing the challenge are up to as well.

How are you getting on with your fic, btw?
My first draft is done (around 46,000 words, I think) and is currently being beta'd. I'm hoping to be able to upload the fic before I go on vacation next week. And then I have, like, a week to write my Yuletide fic before NaNoWriMo starts. Heh.

That said, it sounds like several folks (at least) are going to finish. Yay!
Hi!
Something's come up and I'm going to miss the deadline for Poirot - :(
But Ironside is definately completed, but for last minute fussing-over, so I'm not a total wash out!

Sealgirl
Hey, the Poirot was always a bonus fic, so I understand not finishing it. Though, any chance you'll post a notice here when it's done? I'd love to read it.

Thanks!
I definitely will - :)
It shouldn't miss the deadline by too much, anyway.

*replies, for fish*
Sealgirl
Eeeexcellent;P

Thanks!
arrg one month to go *dies*

btw, I need a beta or two. I'm around 30,000 but there's still more that needs to be written.

What fandom and pairing? Thanks!
Napoleon/Wellington. As for fandom - History xD
I should have known that -- apparently my brain has absorbed as much as it's going to, and has decided to go on strike:)
Ok thank you. I'm almost done writing it, am at the last stretch.
Excellent (and congrats!)
Ah, thank you ^_^
Sorry for replying so late; I haven't had much 'net time. Or anything time, really. There's just no way I'm going to make it.

I'm going to hold onto my fragments and hope to finish them into a 30K word story in the future, but the deadline now is just not feasible considering how many other demands continue to be made on my time that I wasn't expecting when I signed up.

Once again, I apologise.
Well, shoot. Maybe next year?
I'm trying too! Not sure, but will do my best.
Oh, I hope you make it! I'm crossing my fingers for you:)

(Also, your story from round one has gotten a couple of recs at the latest RR posted at epic_recs. You can find the post here:

Just thought you'd like to know:)
OH! Awesome, thanks!
I've been here three times to comment, and each time I talk myself out of it but. I'm not going to be able to make it. I'm not even close to a thousand words. So yeah, I'm going to have to drop out of this challenge :(
Oh, phooey, and I was really looking forward to your fic, too. *sigh* I guess that means I'll have to write it myself.

;P

Thanks for letting us know:)
Aw, sorry! I'll be keeping the prompt, it'll just be much... much shorter :D
Let me know when you finish it -- I very much want to read that story:)
