This is form on my first page. I have to manage if user is not logged in, in that Case after submit form action is Login Page.

<?php/** Template Name: Form */ 
get_header(); ?>

<form id="new_post" <?php do_action('post_edit_form_tag'); ?> name="new_post" method="post" action="<?php if ( is_user_logged_in() ) { } else { echo 'http://localhost/manage/login'; } ?>">
<p><label for="title">Project Title</label><br />
<input type="text" id="title" value=""  name="title" /></p>
<p><label for="Category">Category:</label><br />
<?php wp_dropdown_categories('type=post&show_count=0&selected=-1&hierarchical=1&depth=1&hide_empty=0&exclude=0&show_option_none=Select Category&taxonomy=category');?></p>
<p><label for="description">Project Description</label><br/>
<textarea id="description"  name="description" ></textarea></p>
<p><label for="post_date">submit date:</label></br>
<input type="text" value="" tabindex="5" size="16" name="post_date" id="post_date" /></p>
<p align="right"><input type="submit" value="Publish" tabindex="6" id="submit" name="submit" /></p>
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="new_post" />
<?php wp_nonce_field( 'new-post' ); ?></form>

After Submit this form i am sending POST value on LOGIN PAge where I want to SAVE Post With UserID after user logged In . This PAGE Code :

 * * Template Name: Login Page
get_header(); ?>

// Values Comin From 1st Page
$title =  $_POST['title'];
$description = $_POST['description'];
$category = $_POST['cat'];
$date = $_POST['post_date'];

if (isset ($_POST['login'])) {
    $new_post = array(
                         'post_author'    => LOGGED IN USERID,
                         'post_title'    => $title,
                         'post_content'  => $description,
                         'post_status'   => 'publish',
                         'post_type' => 'post' 
                        //save the new post
                          $pid = wp_insert_post($new_post);

                        add_post_meta( $pid, 'category', $category , true );
                        add_post_meta( $pid, 'date', $date, true );    

        <form id="login" action="login" method="post" name="new_post">
        <h1>Site Login</h1>
        <p class="status"></p>
        <label for="username">Username</label>
        <input id="username" type="text" name="username">
        <label for="password">Password</label>
        <input id="password" type="password" name="password">
        <input class="submit_button" type="submit" value="Login" name="login">  
        <?php wp_nonce_field( 'ajax-login-nonce', 'security' ); ?>
        <input type="hidden" name="action" value="new_post" />
        <?php wp_nonce_field( 'new-post' ); ?>

Just inspect the $_POST values on your login page.

add_action( 'login_head', 'wpse_98289_custom_form' );
function wpse_98289_custom_form()
    var_dump( $_POST );

You can there search for the values that you assigned as name/id attributes and then start populating your custom/additional fields in your login form.
