My latest science fiction narration is up on the new episode of Escape Pod: the beautiful story “That Game We Played During the War” by Carrie Vaughn. If you listen, I hope you enjoy!

Discussion: resources. What are your favourite resources for writing? (this can be anything - software, assistive tech, recurring challenges and exchanges, comms etc) also if you think it would be useful to have, I can make a sticky with resources and try to keep it up to date especially the comms side of it.

Happy birthday to Octavia Butler (22 June, 1947 – 24 February, 2006)!

“Beware:
Ignorance
Protects itself.
Ignorance
Promotes suspicion.
Suspicion
Engenders fear.
Fear quails,
Irrational and blind,
Or fear looms,
Defiant and closed.
Blind, closed,
Suspicious, afraid,
Ignorance
Protects itself,
And protected,
Ignorance grows.”

― Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Talents (1998)


It's a birthday!

I seem to have got mixed up and thought that this week was covered. Oops. I'll be around the rest of the week. How is the writing going today? What about the last three days?

Mooooving..... *sigh*

I have now finished creating a 3-page, single-spaced list of things I need to get accomplished before (and after) our move at the end of July. It's a massive, massive list. I have one quote from a moving company, and will have two more by tomorrow. It's EXPENSIVE to move 'stuff' across the country! But Shiremom will be very anxious (more than she is already) not to be surrounded by familiar furniture and possessions in our new home. Her quality of life is my main concern.

We're planning to drive across the country with Pippin, if we can get Shiremom's car in good enough shape for the journey. Good thing Pip is such a good car traveler. :)

SWG Challenge New Directions

Writing challenges are ostensibly about pushing ourselves to take creative risks that we might not otherwise take. In fan fiction, this includes writing about characters whom we are normally content to forget are even in the book.

This month, we challenge our authors and artists to attempt creating a fanwork about a character they've never written or drawn before, using one of the best resources on the SWG website: our character biography collection. From our list of character biographies, choose someone that you do not know much about or have not written/drawn before. Read the character biography and create a fanwork about that character. (Helpful hint: We have no way of knowing if you read more than one biography before choosing your character!)

While you're exploring the biography collection, we encourage you to let our biography writers know in a comment if you enjoy their work. Biographies take hours to days to research and write and often do not garner the kinds of attention and comments that stories do. So let's show our biography writers some love for the valuable work they do for our group!

Fanworks must be posted by July 15 to be eligible for this month's creator stamp. Review challenges never expire, but if you are commenting on a 2017 story for the Strength and Beauty challenge or earlier, please let me know through a comment here or an email to moderator@silmarillionwritersguild.org so that I can give you your stamps.

I will try to update stamp collections within the next week. Also remember that the Hero's Journey challenge deadline has been extended to June 24. Full challenge guidelines can be found on the SWG site.

It's a birthday!

My mother is the best.

Look who she just made for me!

(Rey’s hair beneath her removable cap is the the cutest thing ever, but I love the goggles so much I had to leave it on for this photo.)


Now they can join the rest of the gang!

May the Force be with you!

My latest “Looking Back at Genre History” is up on the new episode of the StarShipSofa podcast. It’s a standalone piece, but it also serves as a follow up to my recent interview on the My Star Wars Story podcast. If you listen, I hope you enjoy!

Hello, my friends. I wanted to let you all know that Shiremom, Pippin, and I will be moving across the country (to New Jersey) in the next 6-8 weeks, and it's going to be quite a hectic time since i didn't know this until yesterday! It's good news, or will be when the 1001 things I need to do and take care of pre- and post-move, including figuring out how to get there with Pippin, and finding new doctors and health insurance for Shiremom and myself when we do, have been completed. During my recent visit back east, my brother and sister-in-law and I had some long discussions about the future. We agreed that it's a good idea for the family to gather together in one place now, instead of separated by 3000 miles from one coast to the other, to make sure that together we can take care of Shiremom (age 85) and Shiredad (age 89) with the least stress when it becomes necessary. There are other reasons, as well, including financial ones, but 'circling the wagons' as a family is the main one. I want to move while Shiremom is still agile and able to adapt to a new life.

I have pages and pages of lists of phone calls, tasks, emails, plans, and deadlines to take care of in the next weeks, but I'll try to be here every day. When the dust settles, probably late September, we should be able to exhale a bit and start our new life after nearly 40 years in California.

So... I need to get to the day's tasks and phone calls and scramblings! More news as I get it, including a new address.

Many ♥ ♥

Discussion: midway. As we're halfway through the month, how are you getting on with your goals?

July sign up

Jun. 15th, 2017 07:30 am[personal profile] lilly_c posting in [community profile] writethisfanfic
lilly_c: (Alex - notebook and drink)
I'm going to be unavailable for the week of 9th to 15th as my family are visiting for a few days.

It's time to sign up for the July WIP challenge!

Some people join the challenge midmonth, or comment on check-in posts without signing up, which is fine -- I'm glad there's a way for the challenge to be useful in a variety of ways.

But for those of you who find the commitment of signing up useful, please leave a comment with the below information.

Signups will be open until the end of June.



  • Level of challenge: 1 chapter, 1000 words, 1 fic finished, whatever you like
  • Fandom(s) involved: if you know at this point
  • What you're looking for from the challenge: this could be as vague or specific as you like: someone to be accountable to, someone to remind you to write, someone to bounce ideas off, etc.
  • What you could offer other participants yourself: ditto!
  • How people should contact you: DW message, e-mail, IM etc.
  • Time zone: useful for seeing who might be up for a writing session at a time convenient to you


Copypaste below:



I couldn't continue to run this challenge without assistance with the daily check-in posts. Many thanks to everyone who's helped with the check-ins before!

Please let me know if you'd be interested in helping out. A week per person would be ideal (I usually assign weeks running Sunday-Saturday just for consistency). I'm happy to help come up with suggestions for discussion topics (& Friday or Saturday is usually the general chat/snippet/beta-seeking etc. post).

(& if you've completed a fic through the challenge, don't forget our collection on AO3! If you need AO3 invites, let me know.)

CLAMP's HiGH&LOW manga adaptation now has its own website, g-sword.jp. There's a webshop that features goods with CLAMP's character designs.

The goods are also on sale at HiGH&LOW THE LAND. This is a theme park featuring a museum, eatery and rides. CLAMP's flash anime will also be shown. This park is open today.
