Okay, it's time for us to make the final commitment! All writers must participate in this check-in, or they will be assumed to have dropped out of the challenge. This poll will remain open until 11:50 p.m. July 18th. There are two mandatory parts for a Big Bang Participant (poll and email), and only one mandatory part for a Little Bang Participant (poll).

PART ONE:

Answer the questions on the poll. Here's the link!

There is no minimum word count that you need at this point, for either the Big Bang or the Little Bang. After today, you cannot change: your selection of participating in the Big Bang or Little Bang (or both, if you're writing two stories), the fandom, or the pairing. That's locked in!

PART TWO:

An email for Big Bang Writers. If you are attempting a fic greater than 20k, you can choose the Big Bang option and receive an artist who will create artwork for your story. You will therefore need to email the mods at thehetbigbang[at]gmail dot com with THREE different snippets of your work, 500-1000 words each, so that your artist may have something to work off of and inspire. Send a separate email for each big bang that you want to submit.

The email format will be:

SUBJECT LINE: [Your LJ Name: Big Bang Check In.]

Author Name: LJ name and AO3 Name
Story Name: If undecided or only tentative, please state that.
Fandom/Pairing: List the main one, and any minor pairings if you so please
Summary to be provided to the Artist: Yes, this bit is mandatory. It's fine if it's rough, but please give your artists an idea of what the story is about because claims will be done off this. Maximum 50 words.
Current Word Count and Expected Final Word Count:

Then supply your three snippets. 500-1000 words each, in the body of your email and NOT as a separate word document. You may leave any author's notes or any explanations you want, and you must also leave an email address or a way for your artist to contact you directly. Artist are not obliged to work directly with the author on their artwork, but most usually like author input or feedback of some kind. This entire email that you send to the mods will be directly forwarded to your artist, so it's important to include your email address in with your snippets.

You will receive a confirmation email within a couple days to let you know that we've received you snippets.

Hey guys!

We know you're hard at work writing like the wind, but we just wanted to check in. How are things going? This check in is not mandatory, but encouraged - we just want to get a feel for how you guys are doing.

Artist: sit back and relax, and recruit all your artsy friends to come sign-up here. We'll talk to you soon. ;)

Authors: Fill out the polls below, then feel free let us know in the comments below how things are going! Remember, if you're stuck about what to write, we have a "What Should I Write" post here, as well as the HBB support community, which has been much quieter than usual, so get in there and support your fellow Bangers!

REMINDERS:
-Artist, Beta, and Cheerleader sign-ups are still open. Spread the word! We always need lots of all three of those roles!
-Pinch Hit Artist Sign-ups will be coming up next month, so keep an eye out if you're interested in being a pinch-hit artist.
-The MANDATORY CHECK IN is on July 15th. For what you'll need to do for that, check this post for more info.
-If you need help with anything, questions, drop-outs, whatever, go here to Page A Mod.

[Note: I can't create a poll on Dreamwidth apparently, so please hop over to LJ here to take the poll OR just leave us some comments below about how you're feeling! ]

Hey all! It's been a little while since sign-ups and we wanted to check in and see how things are going with you. This check-in isn't mandatory - we just want to get a feel for where everyone is at.

Artists: hang out and relax, we'll come to you soon! ;D

Authors: Fill out the polls below and go ahead and leave a comment to let us know how things are going! Don't forget that if you're stumped about your plot bunnies, we have this post. Feel free to rant, sigh, flail, shout, squee, and cheer on your fellow Bangers. Plus, if you haven't check it out already, we have that support comm where you can rant, sigh, flail, shout, squee and cheer on your fellow Bangers on a regular basis. ;)

Reminder that Artist, Beta, and Cheerleader sign-ups are still open, so feel free to pass the word along! The pimpin' post is here. And, big reminder that the Mandatory Check-in for all Authors is July 15th  (more info about that one can be found in our FAQ post, here)
