Rough Trade and NaNoWriMo 2014 Project

Once again I will be doing NaNoWriMo this year and, with hitting 40k last year in November, I am more determined than ever to actually make the 50k mark! Woohoo! I will be posting to Keira Marcos’ Rough Trade site again but, unlike last year, I will not be posting to here or to Tumblr. The reason for that is I am also participating in Extreme Big Bang with this story and posting does not begin until July 2015.

Then why/how am I allowed to post to Rough Trade? Simple, due to the rules Keira has setup and is enforcing this year only registered members of Rough Trade are able to view stories on the site, you don’t have to be a writer just a registered member, and viewers are unable to download, print or copy anything posted to the site. This may seem harsh and not very reader friendly but Keira created Rough Trade as a safe place for writers to post early versions of their work and get positive, if any, feedback.

This year’s project is another Pacific Rim Chuck/Raleigh novel length fic.

Summary: Raleigh passes out after the battle with Knifehead only to wake up the morning *before* the battle with Yancy still very much alive. Determined to save his brother this time Raleigh goes through the battle only to watch Yancy be ripped out of the conn-pod again, he kills Knifehead again, passes out and wakes up to do it all over again. And again. And again. And again. Just when Raleigh is convinced he’s trapped in hell this Australian kid starts showing up with a story even crazier than time loops.

Will Raleigh save Yancy? Will Raleigh be forever trapped in this time loop? Will Chuck be stuck with him? Will Raleigh finally believe Chuck when he says they’re Soulmates?

Tropes: Canon AU, Time Loops, Soulmate Marks

Multifandom Extreme Big Bang

I'm helping to co-mod and participating in this awesome Big Bang challenge with hoktauri and gwyneth_valora and hope some of you might think about signing up.


What is it: An extreme writing challenge of 100,000 words written within 10 months. Or an extreme artistic challenge of 1 3 min+ fanvid, 1 30 min+ fanmix or 4 illustrations/graphics done over the same time period. Please see the Rules and Faqs for more detailed information.

When is it: Sign-ups run Sept. 15th to Oct 13th, 2014. Posting begins on July 27th, 2015.
Author Sign Up | Artist Sign Up | Beta Sign Up

Where is it: http://extreme-bigbang.livejournal.com/

Why you should do it: Well, bragging rights for one. It’ll be fun and we have all sorts of great mini-challenges and fun events planned for the length of the challenge.

A couple of quick FAQs:
-Can I work with another author? Yes, two authors can collaborate on a story/stories together. You only have to write 100,000 words between the two of you.
-Is it fanfiction only or can I write original fiction? Original fiction is totally welcome.
-I’m an artist, do I claim a story now or later or can I do something completely on my own? It’s your choice. You can work completely on your own. Or if you see a story in the author sign-ups that you’re interested in creating art for you may contact the author directly about collaborating from the start with them. Otherwise stories available for claiming will have a synopsis posted in April.

Where My Demons Hide Update

So, clearly I did not make my late May/early June intended posting date. I ran into the slight issue of one beta waited a month to tell me they weren’t going to be able to work on it and the other completely ignored my request to ignore grammar and focus on plot and characterization and only did grammar. Sigh.

Luckily, since about June I’ve been working with the awesome Raine_Wynd and we are now in the home stretch. Two scenes to finish editing and then a final spelling and grammar check. Short of a major catastrophe I will be ready to post to AO3 on October 1st.

Thank you to everyone who read Demons in it’s rough draft and I hope you enjoy the final version.

I will be doing NaNoWriMo and Rough Trade again this year but I will not be posting my story anywhere other than Rough Trade due to the fact that it is also being done for Extreme Big Bang and posting for that doesn’t begin until July 2015. For those who might be interested I’ll have more in separate posts about them.

Thanks again!

Where My Demons Hide Master Post

A master list of all the currently posted parts of this story can be found under the Story: Where My Demons Hide link at the top of the page or you can just click here.

Despite the unintentionally long time between posts I am still working on this and I am very determined to finish it. As you can see by the word count meter to the right I’m at roughly 63,000 words. If I manage to follow my outline then I expect to finish the first draft in chapter 16 with an epilogue. We’ll see how that goes. LOL Assuming that holds true I expect to finish around 75k words including edits. Then based on my notes for edits and additions I’m currently expecting the final story to be around 75-80k words. I’d kind of like to hit 100k since once upon a time I was entered in Extreme Big Bang but ended up having to drop out because of work and, well, this story because it wasn’t the one I’d planned to write for EBB. Frankly I had planned for this to be a short little story maybe 10k in length as a warm up to the EBB fic. Yeah, I have no idea what I was thinking at that point.

Anyway, the current goal is to be finished with the first draft in the next couple of weeks. Then it’s off to be beta read with the goal of having the Final version done in early to mid May. Once that happens it will be posted to AO3 with a link posted here on the blog and on my tumblr to let everyone know it’s there. Thanks for reading and being semi-patient with me.
