As I do, I'm dropping in on my once-every-two-or-three-years post to see if anyone's still around. Does anyone still write JM fics? I haven't written anything for him in many, many years sadly, but I still love him as much as I did!
Anyway, I hope you're all doing well and staying safe and healthy.
Just doing my yearly (haha) "does anybody still come here" post to see who's still around. Check in if you dare?
I have been absent from the community for some time now (I think years, but who's counting?), and I've gotten a little itch to write again. I'd kinda like to give it a scratch.
It seems that the once lively activity in this community has petered out over the years, and so with this post I would like to: 1) ask all who remain to announce yourselves in this post, and 2) please join me for a short and sweet community challenge. I don't have time like I used to to dedicate myself to a long story, but I'm thinking a short story challenge might reawaken some great, sleeping muse within the walls of my noggin (and maybe yours too!). Let's throw around some ideas!
I have non-fanfiction-related question, and I really hope somebody here can help me.
I remember when I first started listening to John, I saw this video on Youtube. If I remember correctly (it's been about 4 or 5 years, I think, if not longer) he was walking around in NYC and basically getting people to recognize him. He would cough and at the same time say something as "Waiting (on the world to change)". I've been looking for this video everywhere, and I can't seem to find it.
Does any of you know what I'm talking about and where I may be able to find it?
Thank you in advance,
I haven't been around recently and thought I would check up on my favorite community. I hope everyone is doing well! I'm thinking of picking up one or two of my stories if anyone is interested. I would also love to do a challenge if anyone is up for it. Just let me know! Miss everyone!!
Hey I was wondering who was up for a challenge ? It's a short or full length of I get enough traction I'll post it.
So I posted this a little over three years ago, and ended up never writing anything for the challenge. But I wanted to repost and see if anyone would be interested in joining me for the challenge (I promise I'll actually write something this time)?
Ok, so I know that in my previous post, I talked about how I wanted to get back to writing. And I meant it, I really did. The problem, though, is that I've been away so long that I think I'm sort of rusty. Jumping back into a long fic is a bit over my head right now, and I'm plumb out of ideas for short stories. So I thought, maybe I'll post an idea for a challenge and see if anyone's interested. That way, anybody else who's been away for a while can use this as sort of a segue to get back into writing, and those who have been here can have some fresh stories to read.
I know we sort of missed the Valentine's Day boat by a few days, so I was thinking of a challenge related to Spring. I'm really leaning towards the Spring Cleaning bit - I, for one, am tired of this cold weather and ready to think warm, springlike thoughts. So here's my idea: What if we wrote something about how John deals with the changing of the seasons? Maybe he does spring cleaning around his house. Perhaps he has to do some emotional and mental spring cleaning. Maybe he takes a vacation, and maybe he pulls out bits and pieces of old lyrics that he's written but never formed into songs and tries to make something of them. Maybe he's alone, and maybe he's one half of a set. Maybe he gets depressed with the coming of spring, and maybe the changing of the season awakens him from a winter depression. But whatever it is that we think John does to welcome the coming of the new season, let's write about it. What do you guys think? If anyone has another idea for a challenge, I'll take that too! Just trying to get the creative juices in my brain flowing, seeing as they seem to have dried up...
