Lots or None At All  

Randomly, here's a whole hodge podge of stuff.

# 1 -- LJ came out with new writing themes layouts in honor of NaNoWriMo, and one of the free ones fit this comm so well, that I changed our layout to reflect. Check it out. ink_n_quill

# 2 -- I posted my annual NaNo post to my LJ. 

Anyone else joining in this year?

# 3 -- I don't know if I mentioned this, but I got nerdy and located all the recs comms we here at I&Q maintain... and then linked them to this comm.  Check out our links section. 

# 4 -- There's picspam of the kidlets on my Vox. Aren't they cute?

# 5 -- For a while now, I've been getting quotes from QotD.</a> They send me 4 quotes daily.  Today I had the craziest idea for a writing comm.  A 'QotD Ficlets' comm.  Wherein I would post the quotes and people could write up and post whatever they got inspired with based off those quotes.  minimum 500 words (or higher), fanfic or original fic.   Does anyone else think I'd be insane to try this?

1) I love the layout! It looks fantastic!

2) I'm not doing NaNo this year because I have a ton of fics to write (backed up from this summer). Not to mention my own original story. *Sigh*

3) Ooh, links! Awesome! Cool...Dragon Recs made it, too. Hee!

4) So, so cute!

5) I...actually love this idea. I'd definitely try to write for it.:)

1) Doesn't it? *g*

2) That's okay, hon. You have a good excuse. *hugs*

3) Yup! I tried to get everyone's.

4) Thanks ;-)

5) It sounded like a good idea when I was thinking about it. Good to know someone else would try it with me.

I really wish we could get the whole gang working on a project together. I tried with that same theme thing, but that kind of fell through. I think your idea is awesome!

Looking back on it, I think the main reason that one failed is how long it took to organize, picking a theme everyone could work with, etc.

But this... quote comm idea ... wouldn't just be I&Q, I'd open it up to the public at large. No deadlines, just snag a quote and run with it. Post what inspires you, when you get it written, then snag another.

What do you think?
