In your own space, post a rec for fannish and/or creative resources and spaces. Tell us where you go to dig up canon facts for your fandom, or where you get all the juicy details about your favorite ship. Where do you like to hang out and squee like a squeeing thing?

Apparently, I am starting to realize that I my fandom is actually writing. Because while I love Supernatural, and that is what I'm currently writing, I'm not interested (and wouldn't really be able to) make a list of SPN resources. I can however, make a list of writing tools and comms, which is what I'm going to do.

Tools to get those words out:
ilys.com: write one letter at a time, no backspace or delete (good for those who have issues with being ashamed of what they're writing or who worry about every word as they write it)
750words: write 750 words every day and earn badges
write or die: the original; many settings, including one that untypes your words if you remain idle for too long
write or die 2: haven't played around with this, but presumably even better than the original
written? kitten!: get a kitten for every 100 words written

Comms for motivation/accountability:
[community profile] verbosity: weekly goalsetting comm with daily check-ins
[community profile] thedailywriter: monthly goalsetting comm with ad hoc check-ins (at least monthly)
[community profile] writethisfanfic: support comm with daily-ish general check-ins
write every day: [livejournal.com profile] trobadora hosts a daily writing support group with daily check-ins on her journal
[tumblr.com profile] 1k1h: daily writing challenge to write 1000 words (or as many as you can) in an hour; posts twice daily, at least

Comms for prompts:
[community profile] fan_flashworks: single thematic prompt per 10 days or so (3 per month); also has social posts for chatting with other members at [community profile] ffw_social
[community profile] fic_promptly: prompt community with daily calls for prompts where anyone can fill
[community profile] genprompt_bingo: bingo cards of gen prompts (fills do not need to be gen), prompt lists updated twice per year
[community profile] trope_bingo: bingo cards of trope prompts, two rounds per year
[community profile] 15_minute_ficlets: single word prompt posted on Sundays

There are a million more, but that's enough to be getting on with for today, I think. Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments! Also, [community profile] write_good is an editing comm (the name is a joke, get it?), love suggestions for more of those!

This is a great list.

Write or Die 2.0 is better than the first one, especially since it has written kitten style reward settings.

I would add for ficlet prompt comms:
[community profile] femslashficlets, [community profile] mcuflashmeme, [community profile] starwarsflashmeme.

Btw, it's [community profile] fan_flashworks, not [profile] fan_flashfic -- we're multimedia, so... :-)

Great list!

And yeah, trying to do a round-up of a fandom like SPN would be a truly huge feat.

Yay for getting a kitten for every 100 words!

I joined gywo last year; trying again this year, as well as trying [community profile] inkingitout. We'll see how it goes.

I loved ilys.com until it stopped being free. Which, if I had the disposable income, I'd totally pay for it. But I don't, so I can't, and *shrug*

I used 750words.com for a long time, and then lost a writing streak due to moving across the country and it kinda broke me of using the site.

So many tools, the challenge is finding the one that works. :D
