Rough drafts

Rough drafts due today!! Thanks to everybody who got back to my email, it was super helpful.

This is just a reminder for anyone who hasn't submitted yet, as well as a reminder that artist claims are on the 29th.


PS to those of you who I gave extensions - check in with me please! :)

IMPORTANT SCHEDULE CHANGE!

So yesterday was when rough drafts were due but we had very few people actually turning in their fics. Thank you so much to the people who got everything in on time, but I'm going to have to push back the dates a week while we get this sorted out.

The new schedule looks like this:

Rough Drafts are Due – November 24th, 2010
Artist Claims Post – November 29nd, 2010
Final Fic & Art Due – January 14th, 2011
Posting Period Starts – January 21th, 2011

Ten people have commented/PMed to say they've dropped out, two people have extensions (though now they may not need them), but there are still about forty people out there that I haven't heard from at all. If you know anybody out there participating, give them a poke.

(no subject)

Rough drafts are almost due - they must be in on November 17th - when you feel ready, whether that's tonight or 11:59pm on the 17th, send them in to: harrypotterbb@gmail.com

I have Microsoft Word 2007 so if you're emailing me an attachment of your story, please make sure it's compatible with that. Other options are sending me your story in google docs format and either sending me a link to be able to view it or giving this email address specifically access to view. If that sounds too complicated, you've never used google docs before, and your Word won't be compatible, you can always just copy and paste it into Notepad.
Or, even simpler, just copy and paste it into the email itself. Whatever's easiest for you!

There's no time zone for you to convert into, just send in your draft before midnight on the 17th, your time (or as long as it's before midnight somewhere in the world).

Remember, you must have 8,000 words or 80% of your fic completed!

The artist claims post will be on November 22nd, and your final fic (and art) is due on January 7th. If you have any questions, ask them below or send me a PM.

ETA: Also, when you send it in, please provide me with a summary of your fic, the pairing, the rating, and your LJ username. These will be used for the artists to choose a story to make art for (with the exception of the username), so take a minute to make sure your summary reflects your story.

Third Check-In

Hey everyone!

*field's rotten tomatoes thrown with surprising force*

We've had some mix-ups (basically just a missed check-in, but that shouldn't have happened) but we mods have finally figured everything out and NOTHING MORE WILL GO WRONG. Which is to say "we mods" has now turned into "...me" and this challenge is going to go back to running smoothly! \O/

It's time for the third check-in of Round Two. As of now, rough drafts are due on November 17th but since this check-in is a few days late, if anyone thinks they will have trouble meeting that deadline and knows they're going to finish by November 22nd, send me a PM and we can work something out.

This check-in is optional, but it really helps me get a sense of where the writers are at so if you have the time, please fill it out.

Username:
Characters/Pairings/Type:
Current Word Count:
What I Like About the Story:
What I Don’t Like About the Story:
Anything Else: (peronsal issues that are making it hard to write, need someone to read through what you have and give feedback, need to rant a little?)




If you are writing more than one story please fill out one of these for both.

I hope everybody's doing okay, but if you need to rant or have any questions, leave a comment or PM me!

Round 2: Checkpoint #1

So sorry about the lateness of the checkpoint and thank you to those who asked about it, RL has gotten hectic and things will be completely on track from now on.


Welcome guys to the first checkpoint, we hope you all ar making progress in your fics and if you would like to sign up you still can!

Here is how the checkpoint words. We are keeping a spreadsheet for the authors including the current word count. Comment to the post with the below filled out. Please don’t skip any portions. Some explanation, if you aren't writing in a fandom put orginial, and type refers to gen, slash, or het.

Username:
Characters/Pairings/Type:
Current Word Count:
What I Like About the Story:
What I Don’t Like About the Story:
Anything Else: (peronsal issues that are making it hard to write, need someone to read through what you have and give feedback, need to rant a little?)



If you are writing more than one story please fill out one of these for both. It's completely fine to have no words at this point, and don't be discouraged if you see someone else with a lot. People write at different paces (or they could have started their story a while back). Also, this isn't mandatory at all so if you don't check in you won't be dropped from the challenge.
