Hey all!

Thanks to windcharmer for giving me permission to post this, when I asked *ahem* 13 weeks ago. ::: grins ::: Windcharmer, if you'd like to promote your community in a post in mine, I'd be very happy to approve it!

I'd like to invite you all to compete in the brigits_flame monthly writing contest, and to share in the community fun. We have a great base of thoughtful, intelligent, and supportive members in the community, with no drama. Our focus is to socialize, become our best in writing, and share our creativity with one another. We've been building our own community web site that shows all our community artwork (of which there are more than 200 icons and banners) and our community FAQ, for those who want to get an overview of what we're about or reference specific contest rules.

Feel free to post your contest writing for the Flame to this community, so you can get feedback from both communities!

Here's a few great reasons to join brigits_flame:

1. Motivation to do your best: With a monthly contest, weekly writing topics, and 50% eliminations each week until week 4, the competition is tight! You'll have to write your best to keep in the running! Click here to learn how the main contest runs.

2. Weekly Editing: Anyone who writes on the topic is invited to sign up for editing from two of our team of editors. They'll give you solid, constructive feedback in a thoughtful and professional fashion. Learn about the community's editing team.

3. Daily Chatter Posts: Get to know a great, supportive, and intelligent base of members through sharing and discussion in our daily chatter posts. Topics range from the lighthearted to intense debate, depending on the day.

4. Feedback on your writing: Our ROAR team makes sure that everyone's submitted writing has been read and has been given constructive, friendly feedback from community members.

5. Moderators who care: We have four great moderators who will be there to respond well and quickly to any of your questions or concerns.

6. Great reading: There's some excellent stuff being presented to the community every week! If you're looking for some great reading material, this is definitely the place!

Whether you're writing fiction, poetry, fanfiction, nonfiction, screenplays, or just blogging, your writing is welcome! We're a well-established, stable community running for its 15th month! Anyone is welcome- even if English is not your native language. We'd love to see you there! ^_^

Well, I lost track of my daily numbers but I'm quite happy with my results. Even with not writing every day, I wrote most days and have the want and desire to continue this new trend.

Monthly Total: 9,947

Average Piece Total: 350

I had been striving for 10,000 so I came fairly close. Had I done my totals a couple of days ago, I would have written more to make it over the mark - kinda kicking myself for not doing so.

Either way, as far as I'm concerned this Fic Frenzy was a success.

Thanks, Nutty! =D

28,959 - so close!

We had builders meant to be coming for the last few days, so the office sofa was wedged up against the computer desk. So when I hit a couple of research problems I didn't anticipate, everything kind of ground to a halt. I did write a 3000 word historical fiction short story on the last day though, entirely by hand, so all was not lost.

One day I'll crack this, I really will! I feel that if I don't push myself for a high target, I won't work so hard because I'll have less to aim for. Probably if I'd set my target at 20 or 25k, I would have goofed off more (hey, I know me!) And I do feel I got a satisfying chunk done. Though I do wish every month was ficfrenzy month!

And that was that.

How did everyone go?

I know I wasn't around much and I still haven't caught up on the tagging, but I've been keeping an eye on those of you who have kept up with the Frenzy and congrats to all of you.

Now time to post your final word counts for the month. I wanna know how well you went.

[Current Music |call me when you're sober - Evanescence]

Word count - 998

fic worked on - Sorrow's Dark Array (FMA) and an NCIS fic

I finished nothing sadly.

total word count for this ficfrenzy

17370, good but not great. Not even half of what I got last time (but a lot of that can be contributed to my coursework) I wish that most of this wasn't fanfic but it was.

Thanks again for giving us this challenge.

I *may* get to write a little more later but yeah, this month is fail. Lol oh well. I'm just glad to have written this much. It's not my fault if people make me do stuff I don't want to do, and thus keep me from writing :(
