Signal Boost for New Fancon
I Heart My Flist
ride_4ever
Fanworks is a new con that will begin in 2019. It will be dedicated to various forms of fannish craft, including but not limited to fanfic, fanvids, fanart, and podfic, and is under development by trelkez, sweetestdrain, and absolutedestiny.

There will be individual programming tracks for fanfic, podfic, fanvids, and fanart. Panel programming will focus on craft, and will be a mix of technical panels and presentations (how to achieve a video effect, how to write a certain kind of scene, how to make certain kinds of cosplay outfits, et cetera) and topical discussion panels related to different fan crafts. The fanvid programming track will have both panels and vidshows, including a show of premiering vids. All vidshows will be available to stream online (with viewer-optional subtitles) for attending and supporting members.

Planned features of the con include:

-- the FanWorks Night Market: an evening event with vendor tables, food, and drinks
-- a vid dance party
-- a con zine
-- an on-site art gallery
-- a quiet room with a zine library and podfic available for checkout

It's winter in New Zealand...and you know what that means! Oh...you don't? It means now is the time for NaNoDownUnder on Dreamwidth, being run by china_shop who has this to say about it:

"Just a reminder that NaNoDownUnder starts on June first (for winter New Zealand time). Want to kick-start your writing? Set your own goals -- this doesn't have to be a full 50K-word endeavour, just whatever you want to aim for. Pick a WIP to finish, or set a daily time or wordcount goal. Or just wing it, if you prefer. Daily check-in posts. Locked comm so we can chat/cheer/commiserate in semi-privacy (ie, you have to join to play, but membership isn't moderated)."

That 20 First-Lines Meme
Keep Calm & Write Fic
ride_4ever
The meme that's the first lines from your last twenty fics (gakked from exbex).

If you were a shape you would be a perfect arrow. When he walked to Wilby Watch he went to find men who were there to find men. "Wrists together, Ray...thank you kindly," says Fraser, world's most polite dom. Let's kiss in Canada. Ray keeps his poetry on the inside and that's another one of those things he hides. Kowalski really wishes he hadn’t mixed the two IPA’s at the conference: International Police Association and India Pale Ale -- like Fraser’s tongue and electricity -- were not a good mix. “There’s good Goats and bad Goats, but there’s no Goat like the Billy Goat Curse.” City fit and a lot to say about it, not yet Arctic fit and saying even more. On Ray’s first birthday, the Vecchio family gathered around and sang “Tanti auguri a te, tanti auguri a te, tanti auguri Raimondo, tanti auguri a te”. Traversing the ice fields, Ray thinks of Fraser's smile. According to the Illinois Criminal Code 720 ILCS 5/3-5, 5/3-6, 5/3-7, there is no statute of limitations for first degree murder, attempt to commit first degree murder, second degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, reckless homicide, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident involving death or personal injuries, failing to give information and render aid under the Illinois Vehicle Code, concealment of homicidal death, treason, arson, forgery, child pornography, or certain specified sexual conduct crimes in which DNA evidence is entered into a DNA database. When a half-wolf lives in the city, he becomes more doggish and less wolfish, snacks on goldfish and stolen pastries -- scorns the hunt. "S” could be Stanley, “S” could be “Stalker”. White like a blank slate, this cold heaven where the ice promises pristine preservation. Not dog nor wolf – something of both. Come all ye fellow wolves, and prick forward your ears as a ballad I howl that spans many wolf years. Your Las Vegas life is like dry ice, burns you cold -- cold like the Vegas desert at night -- deadly cold -- deadly cold like you are now. April here in Chicago, where everything around me is bursting with a life I don’t feel. Raven-haired robber has plans for the blonde lawyer – date but not court date. It's the second hour of an evening stake-out marked by relentless rain and high winds.
