For the attention of writerly types

Incidentally, LiveJournal's picowrimo is kicking off a "mini" July round in two days.

Pico, if you didn't know, is a "write stuff in a month" comm. It usually runs in November. It is unlike NaNo in that you set your own goal - 500 words, 50 words, "a sentence a day", "SOMETHING"... whatever. Write more than you would have otherwise: You Win. XD

The reason I love it particularly is that, in the daily check-in posts, people post snippets. (There are many orig!ficcers, and many small-fandom ficcers, and sometimes people get confused as to which is which. *g*) And then they go and comment on each other's snippets and converse and... generally be a rather adorable little community of polite awesome.

So, as with many things I love, I babble. ;-) I'd love to have all my writerly friends show up to July!Pico and wriiiiite. (Although I must confess a certain amount of trepidation at A Certain Person's odd habit of beginning to co-mod things I introduce her to, and a hope that there will not be penguins... *shyness*)

I'm hoping to work mainly on polishing and rewriting my MaNo novel, as well as finishing off the other stuff I have in progress (such as the SG-1!Friendathon story that received a sudden and unexpected Piece Of Research the other day in the form of my first motorcycle ride... *happyface*)

(Personal goal: stop meandering. I got in the habit during MaNo, and should now get out again.)

:P If your trepidation involves myself: first, I didn't start the penguins business. Second, you didn't introduce me to RDA Daily -- Lothi did. Last and most important, I have enough on my modding plate already, and Pico is in excellent hands with me as a modest participant. (Also, Pico does not appear to need penguins or any other fowl.)

Congrats on the motorcycle ride! Experiential research is wonderful.

Listen, emu, and listen carefully. If that 'research' anecdote does not turn out to indicate that this fic involves Sam and Bra'tac on a motorcycle together, I will forever call you a tease and forever hold it against you.

Pico sounds so fun! I wish I had a writing commitment in me at present so that I could participate. But I'll look forward to whatever results from your experience. ;)

Tempted. So tempted. So busy. Might come down to a coin flip.
