Further news about the AO3 accounts


I posted last week about AO3 accounts for interested Big Bang participants.

I've now received the AO3 invitation codes I requested and just wanted to give you a quick heads up, that they'll be e-mailed to the addresses you gave us when you signed up for the Big Bang. PLEASE keep an eye out for an e-mail from Archive of Our Own and follow the simple instructions to secure your membership.

If you are participating in the Big Bang and would like a membership but you missed the poll, please let me know as I do have a few extra membership codes and I'd be happy to pass them on to you.

While I'm here, I'll also link to the earlier post about adding the story you wrote for last year's Big Bang to the AO3 CI5 Box of Tricks collection, IF you'd like to do so.


Weekly check in post *waves hello*

Hi everyone. Time for the weekly check in and as usual I am jumping all around the place something my work colleagues are starting to find a little annoying *g* so I have slightly random post for you.

First, while I am sure everyone knows about this, I just wanted to link to the transcripts page over at The Hatstand. These are always a massive help to me when I am thinking about matching things up with the episodes.

Second I wanted to highlight the LJ comm little_details which helps writers with the research and fact checking. Well worth looking through the old posts here as well as potentially posting as the comm is watched by a large number of LJ users.

Next some Tips to Increase Writing Productivity and Hints and Tips for Distraction Free Writing. This is something I desperately need as I keep letting myself get distracted by the phone, the TV, spring cleaning, staring at the wall, everything *hangs head in shame*.

And lastly a bit of fun, how about a couple title generators to help you think of a title for your story, Title-o-matic and Random Book Title Generator. Clicking a few times gave me the options of: Haze Moccasin, Crystalline Blue, Icewater Series, Snow in the Memory, Hard Consort, and Stray Dog Kiss. *grins*.

Anyway now is your chance to check in and let us know how you are getting on, ask any questions, tell us that the suggested title Haze Moccasin fits your work perfectly, and so on.
