Where to come to get fic done
In March 2012 we celebrated our Four Year Anniversary! Thank you to the hundreds of authors and readers who are responsible for our wild success!

Note: As of 2011 the comm has changed how we handle First Readers. To all participants who wish to continue being First Readers, please visit our First Reader Sign Up page for more information on how to continue as a reader at the comm.

Is there a partially written story sitting on your hard drive that refuses to be finished?

Starting new stories can often be a rush, but sometimes the muse deserts us midstream and we're left floundering for an ending. Sometimes for a middle too. ;-)

The aim of this comm is to help authors get new words on old fic. Breaking a stalemate can be done and there are techniques, new approaches, that can help. Not every technique works for every person, but sometimes it's the effort and energy brought to the endeavor that flips the switch and gets the train moving again.

Partial fic as old as 1-4 years (and older!) have gotten new words, gotten done and gotten published using these techniques. They can help you too.

How It Works

1. Pick one existing unfinished fic you realistically could get done within 2 weeks or less. If you have more than one fic to finish try not to pick the hardest one for your first attempt.

2. Join and watch the comm then register your intention to finish that fic in the Author Sign Ups post for the month you want to commit to. Each fic finishing round takes place in a calendar month.

3. Read the F-locked posts especially those that showcase techniques on how to get your fic finished. Do the exercises and suggestions and most of all *write your fic!*

4. When you finish your fic make a Fic Finished! post to the comm so we can celebrate with you. We'll add your fic to our Success Stories list as a sign of your accomplishment.
