There are some things happening around LJ, friends, that I thought I'd bring to your attention if you didn't already know.

[livejournal.com profile] romancingmcshep is kicking off the annual John and Rodney Romance Fest, for those of you in the SGA fandom. Right now the call for prompts has gone out. Cut-off for prompts is January 16th and fics are due the end of February. You DON'T need to use a prompt for your story, but you do need to make sure it has a happy ending. Cause romance, ya'll. ::grins::

[livejournal.com profile] picfor1000 is underway with sign-ups. You have till the end of the month to let the mod know you want to participate, and stories are due March 31st. This is for any fandom, or original fic. Once sign-ups are done, you'll be assigned a picture and you have to use that as a jumping-off point for your fic, even if the finished product has almost nothing to do with the picture. It's all about inspiration. Oh, and the finished work has to be exactly 1k.

[livejournal.com profile] sdwolfpup will be continuing to host the annual More Joy Day. There's a poll up regarding dates, but it looks like the popular vote wants posting to be on January 20th, the date of the US presidential inauguration. We'll definitely need some joy that day. More Joy Day is pretty simple. You do something nice for someone, be they friend or complete stranger. For me this usually means gifting a fic, but it can also mean paying for the person behind you in line for coffee, or holding open a door, or telling someone that you think they're a great person. Spread the joy!

[livejournal.com profile] logansgirl_2001 is going to be starting a regular Pride Post on Monday. This will be a place to talk about good things you've done, seen, watched, etc. Promoting good feelings and pride in our own accomplishments is a very worthy cause.

For general writerly support, I'd recommend [livejournal.com profile] ushobwri. Every Friday is a workshop day, where you can share snippets of your work for feedback. And coming up in February is the annual WIPed Into Shape event, where the goal is to motivate each other to get at least one WIP finished. Or at least make progress towards that goal, because that's a pretty laid-back comm. All the support, none of the pressure. ::grins::

And if you're looking for prompts to help kick your muse into gear, may I suggest:

[livejournal.com profile] comment_fic

[livejournal.com profile] fan_flashworks

[livejournal.com profile] story_works

[livejournal.com profile] fffc

Let me know if there's something good that I missed!
