Needed - cheerleader / ficdominatrix

Heya folks!

I've been a lazy, lazy writer for the past few months. There are two stories I've been working on for *coughs* 2 years or so that are fairly close to completed rough drafts, but I just haven't been able to get over that hump and finish them.

I need a friend to enthusiasically adopt each one so that I can COMMIT to finishing by a deadline. Someone who isn't afraid to send me cheerful reminders and/or crack the whip to get my ass in gear.

Due South Quest story - In this story Ray becomes seriously ill on the Quest, and Fraser reluctantly leads him to a tiny community of his mother's people waaaaay up north.

SPN pre-series casefic - Outsider POV. Dean and Sammy turn up at a shelter for teen run-aways.

Any volunteers?

I would happily adopt the Due South story! I would love to see that exist. I do a great encouraging commentary first read if you need it too. *pulls whip out of the box in storage in case it's needed* Just say the word, and I'm so there for any encouragement, whip cracking, and cheerful reminding required!

Hello ria! Thanks for the help! Do you have an email where I could get in touch, or is LJ the best way?

My goal is to get a rough draft of the due South story finished by the 21st. Could you maybe, umm, send me a reminder in a week, if you haven't heard from me by then? I also might whine to you randomly.

My email and gchat is the same as my lj name @gmail.com. Email is great, probably slightly better than lj. You can also catch me on gchat if you want real time convo. Please feel free to write me whenever, I'm usually pretty good at getting back to people within 24 hours unless work has eaten my soul. What's your preferred method of contact?

Email's best. I find real-time communication kind of stressful, when it's not in person.

You can find me at my ljhandle at yahoo dot com.

*waves hand in the air*

I want that shelter story finished!

What stage is your SPN story at now? What is "fairly close to completed"? *stares sternly with teacher-face* When do you want to have it done?

Can you return the whip cracking for my BigBang 2011 finale, please? I'm STILL not started. You can browbeat me from this moment on. (Except when I'm getting my fan on in LA this weekend!)

*clings* Oh thank you! I'm further than I was this summer, but certainly not there yet. I think I need to write one scene from scratch, complete two others, and fill in some gaps. Of course, given my writing 'process', who knows what might actually happen once I get dug in. My goal is to finish a rough draft by the 27th.

Be merciless? Send me random, vaguely threatening messages to remind me that I should be writing?

And I'll certainly return the favor.

Write bitch, write!

Write, bitch, write? Is that the best that you've got? *slips off to bed, outline still not finished*

Also - I'm SO excited for you this weekend. LA sounds like it'll be a trip!

It honestly gets better every day. Take a look at the schedule on the creation site. I'm missing so many cool Friday people! At least I can see Jared at the concert and the rest at karaoke. Then Saturday Jim Richard Traci Misha Mark (eeee I love Mark) and there's a movie night Saturday, and Sunday a photo (What pose? What pose?) and J2 gloriousness and Genevieve is doing autographs and Brock and then Traci is singing!! Omg doesn't cover it. I wasn't able to justify $1500 to hear Jensen sing LOL. Best of all, my BigBang beta is coming with her hubby and we're surprising her with a j2 photo op :DDD. Can't wait to see her flip.

I can cheer on your Due South story...

Awesome! My goal is to finish a rough draft of the due South story by the 21st. At this point I just need regular prodding, reminding me that I NEED TO WRITE. Later I might need a shoulder to cry on.

If you haven't heard from me in a week, drop a metaphorical horse's head in my bed, wouldja?

I'll probably hunt you down and beg for a really sharp, cruel beta after I finish the rough draft. It's going to need it. /o\

You seem like you've got enough cheerleaders already, but as you know, you can send the due South fic to me for beta when it's done! (Or earlier, if you want feedback on what you've got so far.) I am really looking forward to reading it.

I'll need you, for those authentic northern details.

Your SPN fic is lagging in the cheerleader/ficdominatrix department, so you can sign me up as a backup if you need one!

Sam and Dean in a shelter? Casefic? I'm so there.

Since write_light is gloriously otherwise occupied this weekend, could you shoot me a reminder at some point Saturday night or Sunday morning? I need outside accountability!

You will hear from me! I demand shelter fic!
