The May 17th deadline is on the horizon!!

For those of you who may be dangling on the fence trying to decide whether to sign up as an author or not, the deadline is looming ever closer. If it's a plot that's holding you up, head over to this post to leave a comment with possible ideas, and we'll set up a poll for others to help you decide, and you never know, someone may just plant another, possibly better idea. :D Everything is possible!

Don't forget to check out all the interesting story ideas that our LJ members have signed up to write!!

And for those of you who are debating if you even want to sign up for a BIG BANG, come on and give it a try! I sign up every year, and only finished a story the first time around, but I'm still going to try again. I figure that for me, the worst that will happen is that I don't get it done on time (again!). But hey, if you think you may have time to work on a story for us (and I know some people just have too much going on right now to even consider it), we do have a support group at [community profile] het_banghelp (open only to challenge participants) where you can find writing events and other posts designed to help you write your story (the schedule will go up soon), not to mention lots of people willing to cheer you on, so you may surprise yourself!

In the meantime, we could really use some help in getting the word out that we need more authors, artists, betas, and cheerleaders, so please consider pimping / sending out a signal boost to your friends and comms that allow this type of activity. The more people we get to participate, the more stories and artworks we get to savor!!

Oh, and you can find banners, icons and the codes at this post. And if you have any questions, please feel free to PM either [personal profile] red_b_rackham, or me, [personal profile] traycer, or leave a comment on the Page a Mod post. We're always happy to respond!! :)

Now that we have the Official List of Authors for 2016 I wanted to send out a reminder that we still have the het_banghelp support group for authors, artists, beta readers, and cheerleaders to congregate and support each other as we work or way toward that ever-looming deadline. It's a members-only comm, f-locked to only those that have officially signed up as authors/artists and betas/cheerleaders, so you have to join it in order to participate. (We empty it out prior to each big bang.)

Last year we had special writing and enabling events, like Snippet Days and Block Writing events, and we'd like to continue in that tradition, but we need someone who can step up to the plate and take on that job. To quote [profile] irony_rocks from a prior year's rules of the comm:

The permanent schedule will be up shortly, but first, what I need is one special individual to step up to the plate, being ABSOLUTELY DILIGENT about following the scheduled (when it is established), and post these suckers up as the summer goes along. It is critical that this person be good with posting regularly and on time. I would appreciate the assist!

Anyone interested? :D

Here's a link to the entry that describes what we would like to see for each event.

Just a reminder that [livejournal.com profile] het_banghelp is up and running, and we have several events lined up to help you all get those stories and artworks ready for the big reveal date. Events scheduled for the comm are Wednesday Block Writing and Sunday Snippets, as well as regular brainstorming posts designed to help you work out those sticky plot issues or to just sound off on problems encountered during the writing process. We also will be posting a few masterlists of resources for writers, authors, and betas to help with our projects (first one goes up in the support comm tomorrow), so if you have signed up for this big bang in any category go here to request membership.

Remember, the support comm is a moderated group, and you must join in order to see the event posts.

Hope to see you there!
