Title:  A Life Less Ordinary
Author:  shirleyann66
Fandom:  Original
Genre:  Het/Chick Lit
Pairing: Original Pairings
Rating:  PG-13 for language.
Word count:  ~103,000 (there are different word counts in different programs; this is the average)
Warnings: Lots of swearing; irreverent attitude towards some serious subjects such as infertility, infidelity, and life-threatening illness.  Erm...this happens to be a comedy...
Summary:  For the last fifteen years, Rose “Manny” Mankowski has been a very good girl. She turned her back on her youthful fancies and focused on her career. But now, at the age of 45, she's questioning her choices and feeling more and more disconnected from her own life. When she's passed over for promotion and her much younger new boss implies Manny's life will never change, something snaps. In the blink of an eye, she's quit her job, sold her house and cashed in her pension, and she's leaving town on a six month road trip.  After placing a personal ad for a travelling companion, she's joined in her mid-life crisis by Zeke Powell, the cynical, satirical, most-read – and most controversial – blogger for the e-magazine, What Women Want. Zeke's true goal is to expose Manny's journey as a pitiful and desperate attempt to reclaim her lost youth – and increase his readership at the same time. Leaving it all behind for six months is just an added bonus.  Now, armed with a hatful of destinations, a fistful of guidebooks, and a rich fantasy life, Manny's on a quest to rediscover herself – and taking Zeke along for the ride.

...but I haven't seen any news for a new round yet...mods - please feel free to delete this post if it's inappropriate.

I finally (finally!) finished my fic for this challenge.  It is available on my LJ but since I've blown past amnesty and am well into "I'm so far behind I think I'm ahead" territory, I don't feel right just posting it here.  If anyone's even remotely curious after all this time, just drop me a note in the comments.  :) 
However, since I wouldn't have finished it without this community, I wanted to say thank you for this challenge; it really did keep me motivated through some "this-is-so-awful-I-should-burn-it" moments.

...and maybe the next round (if there is one??), I'll actually make the deadlines.  :D

We're coming up on the end of sign-ups (we'll start ramping up the community over the weekend), so here is a list of everyone that we currently have as signed up.

If you are on this list and have not yet joined the community, please join and you'll be given access as soon as we're able. If you don't request access I'll start sending out invites on Saturday (but it really is more expedient if you request yourself).

If you're not on this list and want to be, you have until midnight on Friday EDT before we close sign-ups (go to the sign-up post and fill out the form if you want to sign up). If you're not on this list and you think you should already be, leave a comment with a link to your comment in the Sign-Up Post.

If there are other concerns/issues/comments that we should be aware of, please comment over at the Page-a-Mod or message welfycat, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

We've had a great turnout, and I'm looking forward to spending the next six months getting to know all
of you and writing up a storm.

ETA: Sign-Ups are now closed! I've sent out invites to those who have not joined the community. If you didn't receive an invite and were supposed to, go ahead and request to join the community.

- Minimum word count is 100,000 words.
- Authors must either provide content advisories/warnings or clearly state that they are choosing not to provide advisories/warnings.
- Authors may continue a piece they have already started as long as it hasn’t been posted, or if it is less than 10k and is taken down for the duration of the Supernova.
- Piece may not be posted before the posting week. Posting will be to your own journals/accounts (or if you prefer to keep your work to yourself, that is also allowed), and only links and headers will be posted to the Supernova community.
- It is not required to have the piece beta read before posting, but it is encouraged if a beta is willing and available to you.
- There are no content restrictions; any fandom, crossovers, fusions, alternate universe/reality, rpf, and original works are accepted.
- You can start writing as soon as you sign up or at any point thereafter. The Check-Ins and Chats aren’t requirements, but participation is encouraged.
- Teams/Co-authoring is allowed with up to three people.
- The Supernova runs over the course of National Novel Writing Month. While according to NaNo rules, working on a piece that has already been started is not allowed, but for those of you who would like to participate in both, well, let’s just say no one is really policing that rule.
- There is no art component to the Supernova, though if you’d like to find someone to create banners/headers/other pieces for your work (or create them yourself), that is fine.

If you have questions/concerns, please pm race_the_ace  or welfycat .
