Original/Fandom: Original: Personal Narrative (Plurality: Headmates Collection)
Notes: This is for NaPoWriMo/Poem-A-Day Day 5. The prompt was to be inspired by the name of a plant/flower. So Honeybees subsystem wrote this acrostic about themselves with the flower name (Evening Sun Sunflower) instead of about the flower.

Original/Fandom: Original: Personal Narrative (Plurality: Headmates Collection)
Notes: This is for NaPoWriMo/Poem-A-Day Day 3. This is another fork off the NaPoWriMo prompt "Write a poem that's a fan letter to a celebrity". This is addressed to creators and while it doesn't name names, it is addressed to: some famous creator-celebrities, some fandom and non-fandom Big Name Fans, and some other online and offline minor creator-celebrities (basically the many AWESOME creator-friends we have). Cecil wrote this one.

Notes: This is for NaPoWriMo/Poem-A-Day Day 2. It kind of forks off the NaPoWriMo prompt, which was "a poem that takes the form of a family portrait". This was written in collaboration by the system kids, but primarily takes input from Janice, Aeslyn and Maya.

Not sure what my year end total for [community profile] inkingitout was but it was slightly higher than 58845, which is my final tally for [community profile] getyourwordsout.

+ Decent amount of poetry written
+ wrote a lot of my guilty pleasure "Common House Tales" fanfic series (I still have about I don't know maybe 50 stories to finish/post on that)
+ kickstarted one original Universe (More Than One) I'd been thinking about and it evolved differently than the original plan, so I have more to research
- did not catch up on original fiction Backlog
- did not finish any of the lengthy fanfics I was hoping to finish
- did not manage to complete any bingo cards


My goals for both communities is 75000 again. I'm gonna let them overlap a bit again.

First Quarter Goals for 2016 (Jan-Mar):
- finish the Backlog of Original Fiction
- release a poetry chapbook of all animal-themed poems
- complete my amnestied Ace Attorney Big Bang 2015 project and send it to my team/find a beta

This Saturday Nov 14th (tomorrow) is the All Year Sprints Night of Writing Dangerously from 7-11pm EST.

We'll be doing a book/library-themed adventure-ish game. Teams will be Libriomancers vs Wizards.

Libriomancers (usernames A-M, colors red/purple/pink).
Wizards (usernames N-Z, colors green/teal/blue).

There will be a sign-up sheet.
(And yes if you want to choose a team make sure your username that night starts with the letter that matches the team and possibly match up your name color).

There will be participation banners for both showing up and for words!
