Hello all! Welcome to your second check in!

Once again, this is not required. Don't feel bad if you still haven't managed to finish much! After all, rough drafts aren't due for a while still. The main reason we're doing this check in is to see how on schedule we are and to remind you all that you're participating! :)

Anyways! To check in, fill out the form below and leave it in this thread as a comment.

Quick reminder: Rough drafts are due January 30th. An email will be sent out about mid-January with details about turning them in. All rough drafts must be beta-read before being turned in. If you haven't yet found a beta, you can check the beta sign-up post or let one of us know and we'll try to hook you up. Until then, happy writing and a happy New Year!

Contacted Artist?: creativmind1281
Genre: Romance/Angst
Rough Summary: It's only taking a boyfriend-for-the-media, a real friend, and someone who might be something more, to help Chris get over his past, and ready for the future.
What's Going Well So Far: I have most of the plot planned out, and I'm almost positive I'll break the word count. And my muse is at work (both of them, actually)
What's Not Going So Well: Scenes are a little bit jumpy, and trying to find a good balance between narrative and dialouge while still getting the overall feeling I want. And writing all the inbetween scenes that need to get written
Favorite Line(s):
“Well this one’s a unicorn.”

“If unicorns sat on their ass like a dog.”

“It could happen. Mythical creatures are very unpredictable.”

Contacted Artist?: Kironomi. We've had email contact :)
Genre: Angst/hurt/comfort/romance/friendship (ALL the genres...)
Rough Summary: It's 12 years since they've seen each other and Darren never expected Chris to be so broken, but he's determined to try and fix him. What he doesn't realise is that as much as Chris needs a friend, apparently so does Darren.
What's Going Well So Far: Got a playlist coming along, got clear scenes in my head.
What's Not Going So Well: But I keep getting distracted by louder characters in my head and not really working on it much. I'm going away for a week and there's a rough agreement with my artist to have a lot of it done by the time I get back, which is mid-January, so my plan is to have a hectic couple of weeks of sitting down and focusing hard on what I'm doing. Which is just the hurdle (focusing).
Favorite Line(s): Much the same as last time. Not much new has been written so~

Contacted Artist?: working on it, don't have one
Genre:Au, Romance, mild angst
Rough Summary:Theatre company putting on a production in which Chris lands the main role. Thwarted only by the directors girlfriend making his life miserable and the directors infatuation with him.
What's Going Well So Far: I have a lot of words
What's Not Going So Well: I have too many words and not enough of them written
Favorite Line(s): “What if we- went to the river? You know; practiced it like they did in the movie – in water?” The suggestion sounded silly as soon as it left Darren’s lips - it had been a practical enough suggestion in his head.
