dreamwriters: cupcakes, text reads Sweet Merciful Cupcakes (Sweet Merciful Cupcakes!)
Hi everyone, we’re back again. This year deciding to only write collectively, though we aren’t sure what our gimmick this round will be. :)

We’ve done RLJI in various forms since Season 5 - Ruby (a headmate) did Season 5 via [livejournal.com profile] crowblood_heart (entries), we collectively did Seasons 6-8 we did collectively on [livejournal.com profile] dreamwriteremmy and Exhibit B as our Agent DreamWriter character on [personal profile] dreamwriteremmy (entries), and we did season 9 collectively here on [livejournal.com profile] dreamwriters (entries) and Giselle (a headmate) also participated in Season 9 via [livejournal.com profile] gisellewakfld (entries).


We’re an over 100 member plural system and usually we go by Dreamers United which is our actual system name, but when we’re writing professionally, it’s usually The DreamWriters now or our legal name which is Emma (we use Emmy as a nickname). Our preferred pronouns are they conjugated as plural, so they are, etc. (We’ll accept female and genderneutral pronouns as well, or you could just ask since who’s fronting tends to also determine pronouns.)

We write a little bit of everything: personal narrative, fiction, poetry, and fanfiction.

We are 28 years old and a reiki practitioner and lifelong learner and a cat caretaker volunteer at our local animal shelter. Currently on top of participating with Idol, we are also doing a variety of projects for National Novel Writing Month, including a currently open Irregular Prompt Call. If you want to help us write stories this month, please go over to the prompt call open post on Dreamwidth (or here on LJ) for stories about: minority characters, nonviolent resistance, problems that can’t be solved with hitting and/or happy prompts!

[livejournal.com profile] therealljidol is in session again for Season 10 and we Idol veterans are tossing our hat into the ring collectively again!

(Though I'm not sure what exactly we're going to do stylewise this round.)

If you want to sign up, sign ups are still open here; just remember to include if you're a newbie or a veteran.

It's NaNo, I'm behind schedule. I'm disappointed in the election results. Fuck it I'm expanding my NaNo project again.

It's time to as [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith calls it, poke a bigot in the eye by spending your folding vote on the world you want to see.

Rating: G

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.

Original/Fandom: Original: Personal Narrative (Plurality: Headmates Collection)
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
