    It's not yet June, but I can already see that I can't get Ahsoka to the end of her story by July, so I'd like to expand to full year diary for her.

    @CaraJinn, sorry for the late reply! Yes, it's fine if you want to switch your 6-month diary to a full-year one. :) Same goes for anyone else, just let us know for records keeping purposes.

    Almost-July Announcements

    Hi everyone,

    Just a few announcements as we're quickly approaching July.

    July-December diaries are starting up soon! Just as a reminder, these half-year diaries only have to be 12 entries in the end. So if you want to write a slightly shorter story, the half-year diary may be a good option for that. July-December diaries can be posted starting July 1.

    Current and recently completed diaries

    Congrats to all the writers, in competition and out of competition. Thanks for sharing your stories with us! :) Here's a list of the current in-competition or completed diaries for this year. (Kudos to @Adalia-Durron and @Anedon for the first completed half-year diary of the year!)

    Before the Saga

    Diary of a Very Sympathetic Padawan by devilinthedetails. Updated 2020 June 19

    The Saga


    Outcast by CaraJinn. Updated 2020 June 13

    A Drop in the Bucket by Mechalich. Updated 2020 June 24

    Beyond the Saga


    Realizing my Heart's Fondest Dream by WarmNyota_SweetAyesha. Updated 2020 June 18

    X-Wing Pilot by earlybird-obi-wan. Updated 2020 June 26

    Powers vs. Passion by Adalia-Durron and Anedon. Completed 2020 June 27

    And here's the survey part of things.

    We're thinking of relaxing some of the deadline requirements due to the continuing pandemic and how that affects a lot of writers' fanfic writing time and energy. One suggestion for this is that there would be no removing diaries for missed updates BUT the update total for the year/half-year would need to be the same to be eligible for the competition. Keeping to the schedule is something that Pandora and I would really recommend doing if you can anyway, since it can be daunting to write a bunch of stuff at the last minute. But we're hoping a less strict deadline may help. Please let us know what you think and if you have alternate ideas for what to do with deadlines -- or if you want it to stay as-is.

    Best wishes,
    Kahara

    I'm currently debating doing a OC (Teilo) half-diary because my muse has been itching me for more Pan/Teilo lately and I think I just need to force myself to see the world through Teilo's eyes. But time and plans and life aren't cooperating much these days.

    And yeah, times are weird, so I think really relaxing of the rules might be a good idea for the next bit.

    I would like to attempt a half DDC. Things with the baby are balancing out and seeing that I will be typing it on Google Docs I will have an easier time at least writing the entries.

    I'm actually not sure! It'll depend on if we have January-June and July-December diaries competing or keep each set in their own category like last time (at least, I think they were all in their own thing last time).

    Question: to enter into the half diary, do you have to have your first entry up by mid-way through July or do you have till end of July to post 2 entries (you guys have probably answered this before, I just cant find it).

    I still want to try to do a half diary and I'm like 90% finished my first entry, but my company who was only supposed to be here for the weekend is now going to be here all week so I'm not getting time to finish it this week.

    @Briannakin: You do indeed have until the end of July to start posting your diary.
