  4. FROGS 2018 Winners

    These awards are incredible, Branden! Thank you so, so, much to everyone for making the FROGS so awesome, especially to @clevernotbrilliant, @LadyL8, @manno-malfoy, @PaulaTheProkaryote, @Rumpelstiltskin, and @ShazaLupin for the nominations and seconding/thirding, and to everyone who voted. I honestly wasn’t expecting to be nominated, let alone win, so this means a lot to me. Congratulations to everyone else who placed and/or were nominated! And a shout-out to the staff for putting so much time and organisation into making the FROGS such a fun event. Thank you for making HPFT such a wonderful community that we can all call home.
  5. The Productivity Thread

    Stopping by with my list of procrastination productivity! -write letter and send form to a place (really needs to be done ASAP, should have been done in October ) -finish chapter four of Where The Wind Takes Me -get to 25k of Where The Wind Takes Me -edit/rewrite and submit at least one chapter of The Firework-Maker’s Daughter to the queue The goal is to achieve everything by Sunday at 9:30pm... we’ll see Please do poke me for updates and hold me accountable for this on Twitter! @Phoenix Potioneer As a starting point, why don’t you treat those as story prompts eg: Peter didn’t want to be a role model. The responsibility weighed upon his shoulders, a constant source of strain while paranoia whispered in the back of his mind: people are judging you for all those detentions you keep getting, for hanging around with James and Sirius. And then with words on the screen, you can rewrite it like: The responsibility of being a role model can be stressful and negatively impact on friendships with people who may otherwise be considered ‘inappropriate’. I hope that helps!
  6. Today I clicked on HPFT by accident and discovered that not only did I win the prefect writing challenge, but two of my stories have been nominated for a F.R.O.G.S. award. There are no words that can describe what I'm feeling right now. You guys are awesome. :sad:

  8. The 10K Weekend Challenge!

    *drumroll* It's Fri-YAY! Weekends are awesome! (Unless you work weekends, in which case you have my sympathies entirely!) In the humdrum of the Monday to Friday nine to five, work or school can be a real pain when it comes to finding time to write, and getting that word count up, which brings us to... THE 10K WEEKEND CHALLENGE!!! Originally posted a few NaNos ago by our dear Tammi (WalkingDredd) the goal of this challenge is very simple: to write ten thousand words in 72 hours. I'm sure none of us would turn down lazy Sundays underneath our duvets, so this is the perfect excuse to do just that while tapping away at our keyboards and seeing that word count rise as we kill our characters off! (Or is that just me...? ) All you need to do is post in this thread with your starting word count, using the form below. Take the weekend to write, and come back 72 hours later (Monday - or Tuesday if it's already Saturday where you are. Sorry I'm late, Australasia!) with an ending word count. Those of us who are rebelling or have manic schedules this weekend can aim for smaller word goals, which is completely okay, because every word written is a word you didn't have before! Let's get ahead on our word counts before real life starts to kick in (Thanksgiving, work, school, shopping for the unmentionable C, etc) and get NaNoWriMo 2017 off to an awesome start!
