Not sure how this works? Check out our FIRST post.

Our tentative schedule right now looks like this:

September 25th: Author/Artist Sign-ups Open
October 9th: Author/Artist Sign-ups Close
January 8th: 10,000 Word Check-in
March 12th: COMPLETED Story Drafts Due
March 19th: Stories Go To Artists
June 25th: FINAL Story Draft Due
July 16th: Art/Vids Due
July 23rd: SMALL FANDOM BIG BANG GOES LIVE!

We'll have a check-in post once a month where we'll see how you're doing and where the cheerleaders (and anyone else) will get a chance to cheer you on as you work toward your 20,000 word goal - some will be flocked, some will be open to the public.

Sound good?

Okay, so here are some posts that you need to check out first before deciding if you want to take part.

THE RULES - Please read them carefully. Everyone will be expected to actually follow them.
THE GUIDELINES - Please read them carefully. Everyone will be expected to actually follow them.
THE FANDOMS - You can only choose one of the ten fandoms listed to take part in this year's BIG BANG.

Question: I'm doing art and beta for SGA Big Bang, have a promised fic to finish and already have a project worked out for mini_nanowrimo, is the January 8th 10,000 word check- in a deal breaker? I'm not sure I can make that, but I'm confident I can finish the entire 20,000 by the deadline (just finished one at almost 22,000). I'd love to write a Hewligan fic - Brendan/Emmett, but like I say... not sure I can do my research and have 10K by the 8th of January.

Thanks!

Nope, not a deal breaker. :) Much like the SGA Big Bang, it's like a 'this is about where you should be' kind of thing but if you're not, that's fine. :)

Have to admit that the thing that puts me off is the huge time gap. SGA BB is twice the length and the timescale is 6 months from sign up to site live. 10 months for fics half the size of SGABB seems excessive...but that's just my POV.

The reason it's so long is because there are other BBs running for the next few months (as well as other challenges) and several people have contacted me in regards to that (that they wanted to sign up but couldn't if the majority of it was going to be during challenges they were already a part of happening over the course of the next few months) - I COULD have waited three months before opening the sign-ups, but just extending it seemed like the better idea. *shrugs*

That sounds reasonable! I guess I could always sign up now and start working on the story in January :D

*grins* You definitely could! ;) Or HEY, if you want to get real adventurous, you could sign up for TWO stories. ::whistles:: ;)

Hmm!! Wasn't sure that was allowed! If it is then I'm tempted as I want to write both a Hewligan AND a Riddick!!!

Oh, if you think you can actually write and finish two stories then YES! by all means sign up for two. :D
