It's nice to have someone to bounce ideas off of, since you can't use your regular go-tos because of the secrecy aspect of SeSa. :yes:

As much as I'd love Chelsea to participate in SeSa, I'm thrilled she's going to beta because one of the disadvantages of the last SeSas I participated in was that I had no one to bounce ideas off of and Chelsea is one I love to bounce ideas off of because she will point out the plot holes and help me figure them out and it's always so much FUN!

Chelsea has made me a better writer because of our idea-bouncing sessions. No question. :hug2col:

I'm good with bouncing ideas and read over stories but Where I would not be any use would be grammar and spelling side of it

Sign-ups are officially over, and we have an even 10 participants. It's about quality, not quantity. ;)

Since we don't have many participants, I should be able to get the pairings and assignments out quickly. No promises of an actual date, but definitely within the week! :bounce: :madhop:

Can't wait to set you writing! :christmaswriter:

I couldn't find the old spreadsheet, so I just spent a few hours making a new sheet of who has written for whom over the years. We have had over 120 different SeSa participants through the years, and I can't even find the 2007 data. (I only input who I wrote for and who wrote for me, because I can't remember anything else...)

Believe it or not, the assignments are done and I only need to send them out!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: Let's hope I didn't make any glaring mistakes. :blush:

If you have questions about your assignment, PM me, not your recipient.

:christmaswriter: Just a reminder to everyone that we do have three months not three weeks to get this done, if you get a plot :whitebunny: bunny immediately great but don't force the issues when it's not necessary to do so, as I told someone else, if you know the recipient take the time to remember or maybe review some of what they've written, that is an excellent way to find out what your recipient is like... we just received the assignment, stressing out this first week is only going to make you ill and it can affect your writing as well. If you don't know who your recipient is, get more details from iheartgibbs, that's what she's there for :) :christmaswriter:

I got mine! I'm so excited!

RL has thrown a couple of curveballs at me... my temp job was over quicker than I'd have liked. So... back to my job campaign! I'm not going to be deterred from SeSa... I'm going to be sure to set aside some writing time. :christmaswriter:

So, I'm fortunate in that I have a wonderful problem: too many choices. Lots of ideas, can't choose just one or even two.


Plot bunnies are :whitebunny:

Once I finish my current story I'm going to give it a think. I could probably dash something off, but that doesn't seem right for a SeSa story. ;D

I figured out the basic premise for my story, have the setting, and the conditions laid out. I even have a vague idea of how it will end though I haven't figured out all the dialogue yet. That usually comes naturally when I get into a groove, but I think this will work.

I'm feeling a little intimidated by mine right now, tbh; it requires writing two characters I've written plenty before, but not really in combination with one another (and one of them is one I haven't written that much), and given the particular circumstance of the prompt, I'm rather concerned I might disappoint :-/

I remember how intimidated I felt when I did my first SeSa. I felt I was completely inept to write something that Chelsea would like. It ended up working out though so I think it might be good to be a little nervous. That way you don't get cocky and smug before you've written the first word. I think being nervous helps our subconscious do better...just a theory. At least, I think I do better when I'm a little nervous.

I have faith in you, Sarah.

My first se/sa took me until Black Friday to figure out anything on, especially since I really didn't remember anything about Hollis Mann, she just wasn't in the storylines enough to make an impression on me, but it worked out okay...we can do this you guys give yourselves credit for even attempting it and remember if someone (namely me) who doesn't like McAbby can write a good McAbby, then anyone can write se/sa :)

Is it kinda sad that while thinking about my SeSa story, I came up with a prompt for WEE? LOL

Thanks for your faith in me, folks. I got really lucky my first SeSa, with a prompt that could've been written for me, but the last few have been kind of nerve-racking. So far I've always made it in the end, it's just one of those times when you look at a prompt and feel unequal to it :shocked:

If it makes you feel better to know, the person who is writing for you feels the same.

I think it's pretty common to feel unequal to the task at first.

Well, my original idea was a flop. Once I started writing, I realized it was boring. Now playing with a new idea.

I'm a little disappointed the original idea didn't pan out, but I'm still excited. I know I'll figure this out.

Maybe some of what you liked about the first idea can be incorporated into the new story?

It's possible, yeah. I had a lot of ideas for the original story, and I may even still be able to use elements of it, but I got bogged down in the details which turned out to be the boring part. If I can figure out a new way to tell it, I could still use it, though I'm afraid that how I could tell it would make center the story on a different character than who my recipient wants to read about. I'm not sure how to handle that part yet since my new idea is still rather under-developed at the moment.

:bounce: I have no immediate internet, so I go to McDonald's or the library, both of which are freezing out their patrons atm...so I sit in my car and do facebooking for now, and will wait for ideas to generate. I have over two months to figure this out, a beta to help bounce ideas off of, and I refuse to stress out over this until Thanksgiving weekend hits, if I haven't found an idea by then, THEN I will start to worry :) ;D :bubbles:

Just seen on FB "The best time to plan a book is while you are doing the dishes" quote by Agatha Christie.

I never knew she said that but I always think about stories when I wash the dishes. I almost look forward to doing them just so I can let my imagination run wild. Note the key word is 'almost'.

I got the idea for one of my stories while I was walking to a building on campus. It's that time when you don't have anything you have to be doing or even necessarily thinking about. :)

I've got the first tentative lines written on a story idea for mine. I'm still deciding if it's going to work or not.

I'm finally at the brainstorming phase! I have several ideas... it's just a matter of making one or none of them the one to use. I like to have backup ideas in case the one I pick initially doesn't pan out.
