Here's the post for those who don't want to/feel they can't sign up for the actual challenge or as a beta, but would still like to participate. Why not sign up as a cheerleader?
Cheerleaders aren't formal beta readers. They're someone participants can bounce ideas off. Someone who can pre-read a partial draft and give a sense of whether it's working. Someone who can break out the pom poms and, well, cheer a writer on to the finish. It's an important job; writers, artists and vidders need all the encouragement they can get, and those pom poms aren't going to shake themselves. :)
If you'd like to be cheerleader, just pop your name in a comment below, to let people know they can call on you for encouragement if needed. You can also pop into the weekly check-in posts (starting shortly) at anytime to offer encouragement, a shoulder to lean on, or just to shake those pom poms like the fabulous cheerleader you are!
Get practicing those star-jumps, and GO PROS!
