Mods, if this post isn't okay, let me know and I'll take it down.  I think this would be more of a cheerleading post.

It's already been a month since sign-ups!  How far is everyone on their fic?  I just got past the 50% mark tonight and I am so thrilled.  I haven't updated my WIP in months and basically I've been writing this all the time.

How do you guys stay motivated to write?  Do you write a certain amounts of words a day or do you binge-write?

Anyone need some starting motivation?

Yeah, I just really wanted to brag that I got past 50% but...  I also  wanted to see how everyone else was doing as we approached the 1-month mark.

Have a great day!  And I'm sure all of you know but [livejournal.com profile] wc_reverse_bb posting NOW so go check that out if you're in the middle of a block!

Hmmm... So full disclosure. I wanted to write a Peter/El story, but I wanted to finish my post S5 first. Except this one keeps growing, so I'm thinking about keeping that post S5 story for the BB. After all, it's long enough already to qualify.
And given my over-busy schedule in the coming months, I don't think I'll have time to finish that Peter/El story in time.

And I keep telling myself "tonight I'll write some", but I end up being too tired and watch a TV series instead... So, in the end, I mostly write during weekends, when I don't have much planned.

Good luck!! I've been obsessed with Suits lately and basically my WC big bang is now a Suits/WC crossover :)

And TV is so addicting!!

Heee my first and foremost love remains White Collar, so instead of crossovers I tend to see whether or not a good situation in another show could apply to White Collar. ;-)

I never thought of crossovers until Suits. They both take place in NYC and it's all just super awesome!!

WC/Castle would work pretty well too! It would be sooo much fun if it happened.

That would be amazing! I haven't seen Castle for a few seasons but I really need to catch up and write this WC/Castle/Suits crossover thing. Oh the fun I'll have in fandom-new york.

You passed the 50% mark? Nobody likes an over-achiever! ;P

Seriously, I haven't even begun to write. Or to plot. Or to research.

(And I highly doubt I'll do that anytime soon, tbh.)

Well, not everyone can pull a BB at the last minute. :-P

Haha. I definitely can't do that! Early prep is key for me! If you can do that Gaby, kudos to you!

I'm jealous. I've managed to write the first like 1000 words and get a good chunk of my outlining done, but with finals 2 weeks away I've been kinda dying thanks to school. Gonna have to put things on the back burner till after. I typically binge write though. If I try and force myself I typically end up hating the result.

Haha, yeah. I think I'm taking a break soon since I have finals two weeks away too! What a coincidence!!

I was working on my Reverse BB until now, and I'm also stuck and I just now realized rough drafts are due in July (eek). So I might have to go for a completely different fic than planned.
