Over the course of [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw, there's been so much posting that I wish I could reward everyone. Unfortunately, I can't, so I drew names out of the hat as promised. The people who are getting one month's worth of paid time from me are:

-[personal profile] birgitriddle
-[personal profile] tanaqui

I'm going to give it to you in DW points, since we can now transfer those between users, so that if you don't want more paid time now, or would rather give the time to a different journal, you can do that.

Thank you to everyone who has posted and made this comm active. You all rock.

(I'm starting to move out of my flat on Monday, so I couldn't wait for the end of the fest. Forgive me.)

And another fic posted!

Just as with my AU Big Bang fic, I decided to post my SPN Crossover Big Bang fic exclusively to Dreamwidth, so it could be a part of the [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw fest.

Title: By Pendragon's Sword the Dark Shall Fall.
Fandom: Supernatural & The Dark is Rising.
Main characters: Sam, Dean, Castiel, Ruby; Will, Bran. No pairing.
Rating: PG13.
Contains: Angst, AU, crossover.
Summary: When Dean sees Bran and Will in a crappy little diner, he has no idea how important they're about to become to his life. And if he had to pick anyone to be extra special, it'd be the arrogant albino asshole, not the mild-mannered Will Stanton. Which shows how much he knows. Will's the Watchman of the Light, and he's not at all pleased with what he's seeing.

Read it here!

I included a place to download a .rtf copy, for those with vision issues or who want it on their ereaders.

Basically expecting no comments because the fandom I did a crossover with is so small, but you could prove me wrong... *grin* Someone's gotta be interested, anyway.

I posted my AU big bang fic. *flails excitedly*

Like [personal profile] shanaqui, I posted my story exclusively to Dreamwidth so I could make it part of Three Weeks for DW.

Title: New Day Rising
Fandom: Jericho
Rating: General
Warnings: None
Words: 15,970
Summary: A time-travel AU, sequel to [personal profile] scribblesinink’s Times Like These. Sent back in time, Jake Green has successfully prevented the September nuclear attacks. Armed with the memories of nearly a year of events that haven't happened, he must pick up his life and find a way to fix relationships that are once more broken. (Minor crossover elements with Supernatural.)

Read it here, where you can also find links to the lovely art that [livejournal.com profile] optimouse made for it.

I'm also very happy that my muses are all excited about writing id-pleasing fic for my beta's birthday and doing a good job working out the plot hole issues. (Also, for those who haven't seen it, [personal profile] strina wrote a great post about id-fic - probably NSFW language, depending on where you work....)

I'm hoping that finally posting the above fic and having freshly excited muses will mean they're all cooperative for the two ficathons I've signed up for....

FIC POSTED! *runs around with arms in the air*

I decided to post my [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang fic exclusively to Dreamwidth. It's easier than splitting it into parts for LJ's post limit. And I could make it Three Weeks for DW content, too. Buuuut I don't have as many readers on DW, so I'm really really hoping I still get comments over here. *grin*

Title: Right Where We Belong.
Fandom: Supernatural.
Main characters: Dean, Ellen, Jo, Castiel, Sam. No pairing.
Rating: PG13.
Contains: Angst, AU, violence, a happy ending.
Summary: When John dies, Dean ends up at the roadhouse and is brought up by Ellen as Jo's big brother. Growing up there is no protection, though -- not when the apocalypse is about to start.

Read it here!

You'll also find links to all the extras (including two fanmixes and a drinking game!) on that post. I included a place to download a .rtf copy, for those with vision issues or who want it on their ereaders.

When I'm in the mood, deadlines are a good motivator. Of course, sometimes they can be nightmarish, but I'm going with motivating for now! My Ultimate Deadline is September, as that's when I'm going to be starting my teacher training and I'm going to have a lot less spare time.

What I want to do by then is:
--Complete the first edit of the novel-first-draft (colloquially known as the superpower story) I recently finished. It's currently lying around so I can distance myself from it enough to look at it with clear eyes.
--Aim to reach about halfway through the novel-first-draft I'm now working on (colloquially known as the deathworm story). That target gives me a lot of leeway for days when I'm too busy or just don't feel like writing.

I've never drafted while editing something else (or edited in a methodical way, really), so I'm feeling a little apprehensive for when I start. I think it's going to be a challenge switching between editing-mode and drafting-mode, so fingers crossed for that one...

I also want to write at least four short snippets for Three Weeks for Dreamwidth. I've done one so far for [community profile] stayintheroom, so I feel cautiously confident about that.

Do you folks have any editing tips -- or, conversely, tips for switching off your inner editor?
