WRITER'S REQUIREMENTS AND INFO








WRITER'S REQUIREMENTS AND INFO





What type of requirements are there for a writer?
There are two portions of the Bang Challenge for Writers! The Big Bang and the Little Bang.

The Big Bang is basically what we did every year: Your fic must be completed and at least 25,000 words long. Writers accomplishing this goal will get an artist assigned to them by the comm, and they will receive artwork for their story!

The Little Bang challenge is ditto to the above, but only at least 10,000 words long. There will be no assigned artists for these stories. (Authors can go out and find themselves an artist, if they want, but they MUST inform the mods that they have made these arrangements. Just so we can approve them for the collection submissions, when the time comes.)

All stories must focus on or revolve around a het pairing of your choosing, and mandatorily beta-read before the posting date. At the time of signing up for this, you need to know the following: a) what you think you'll be writing (fandom/pairing, prompt -- and yeah, you can change your mind later all the way until the Mandatory Author Check-point in July!); b) whether you are participating in the Big Bang challenge or the Little Bang challenge (and yes, you can change your mind later on, all the way up to the Mandatory Author Check-point in July.) c.) whether you already have an A03 account, and if not, that you will be willing to acquire one before the submission deadline. d.) give us your e-mail address; and e) Then go to join [community profile] het_bigbang AND friend the community. You *must* join and friend for updates; it's a requirement to participate in this challenge.


Define a qualified het pairing, please!
Any het pairing, any fandom. Crossovers, fusions crossovers, genderbender het and RPF (Real Person Fic) are all allowed. There may be more than one het pairing in the fic. There may be other secondary slash or femslash pairings within the fic, as long as a het pairing is the primary focus. Slash, threesomes or moresomes should NOT be your focus. But what if our fic is, like, more gen but with a hint of ship? Um, that probably doesn't qualify. We want a het pairing as a primary focus. We are not going to psychoanalze how "shippy" the fic you're writing is, but please use your best judgment. Original Works based on your creations are also allowed. All standard rules/procedures apply.


Can I sign up more than once as an author? I've got so many plotbunnies!
Yes, you can sign up as an author twice! Both times for the Big Bang, or both times for the Little Bang, or in both the Little Bang and the Big Bang! Your choice. However, it must be for stories centered around different pairings. (Same fandom is fine.) Don't sign up twice for the same pairing. You must sign up twice in the Author's sign up post with separate comments, so I am crystal clear that you are participating twice!


I don't know what to write! I've got so many ideas!
We're here to help! While you can change your plotbunny at any time, we're also offering you this post to help figure things out. You provide descriptions of up to five of your plotbunnies, and we put up a poll here to see what people are interested in. No obligation to go with the winner, but it might help you choose!


I've already been writing a het pairing story already. Can I use that?
Was it written for last year’s Het Big Bang/Little Bang and just never completed? If so, sure!

If not…. then for the Little Bang, you gotta start fresh. Sorry.

However, either way, for the Big Bang you are allowed to use a WIP if it's less than 10k written. Ideally, your story should not have appeared anywhere on the net already, and if it hasn't been posted anywhere, you only have to reach the goal of 25k total. However, if you do already have a couple thousand words of it up somewhere public (at max, 10k), then we won't count that towards your total 25k requirement, and you must immediately take it off the internet completely for the duration of the challenge.


Can I write with someone else?
Yes, you may co-author your big bang if you want to.

Quick question about this one. I do have a fic up for this verse already, but the bang fic would be a separate standalone fic. Anyone reading the bang wouldn't need to have read the first fic at all, it's just exploring the same verse/concept further (and way more in depth as the first fic is quite short). So I have kiiinda written part of it if you look at it from one direction, but I haven't at all if you look at it from another. Obviously I'd prefer not to take down the other part given it's a complete posted fic already (and was written as a gift), but if this edges too close to that rule and I do need to let me know and I can...?

Perfect, thank you! I figured that it would be separate enough not to count, but wanted to err on the side of caution just in case :)
