Weekly Check-in Post

Well, folks, that dreaded moment is quickly approaching -- we're a little over a month out, omigodI'mnowhereneardone and it's time to go over what happens in that month. This is not under a cut because it's all important.

So here we go:

I. The Deadlines

Friday 23rd September

Writer's final draft is due
While you'll still have a few days to tweak and polish, we'd like the writers to have complete, finished stories by this point.

Artist's rough draft is due
As the artists have less time to work on this than the writers, we only need to see a rough draft of their art at this point. What we're looking for is an indication that the artist is on track to finish in time for their posting date.

Artists and writers should all send their drafts to the friendly mods. [who really haven't pulled all their hair out yet] Further information about sending us these drafts will be posted closer to the deadline.

Tuesday 27th September

The posting schedule is sent out to artists and writers.

Saturday 1st October

Posting begins. Woot Woot Woot *\\\\o////*

II. What You Will Be Posting

Writers

In a publicly accessible location of your choosing: your story.
You may post in your own LJ, in an LJ you create specifically for this purpose, in an archive, like AO3, or on a website.

We only require that the story is publicly accessible, and that you do not post your story before your assigned posting date.

In the ci5_boxoftricks LJ: a post with a link to your story.
We'll be supplying templates for what your posts should look like nearer to the posting dates.

Artists

In a publicly accessible location of your choosing: the art for your claimed story, with any commentary you'd like.
You may post in your own LJ, in an LJ you create specifically for this purpose, in an archive, like AO3, or on a website.

We only require that the art is publicly accessible, and that you do not post your art before your assigned posting date.

In the ci5_boxoftricks LJ: a post with a link to your artist's post.
We'll be supplying templates for what your posts should look like nearer to the posting dates.

Writers and artists

Just a quick reminder that like last year both writers and artists will be making their own master posts to ci5_boxoftricks. But of course, as in previous years, writers and artists who would like the art included within the story should feel free to arrange to do so.

III. Some extra reminders / notes

We'll be supplying templates for what your posts should look like nearer to the posting dates.

We will also be asking you about any dates in October when you would not be able to post so put your thinking caps on.

If posting in LJ, there is a limit of 65,000 characters per post. This generally works out to an average of 8,000 to 10,000 words.

A new 2017 Pros Big Bang Collection has been made available here (yeah, there). To find out more about AO3 take a look here and here. To be clear you are not required to post your story / art at AO3 but if you are interested in posting at AO3 we still have some invite codes left so drop us a line if you would like one.

And we ask that both artists and writers do not cross-post their stories and art to any other community before the end of October.

IV. And finally

As always if you have any questions, drop us a comment or an email (the address is prosbigbangtwo@gmail.com) and watch out at the comm for future posts.
