WRITER'S REQUIREMENTS AND INFO


ETA: SIGN UPS CLOSED!!!!


What type of requirements are there for a writer?
Your fic must be at least 25,000 words long and mandatorily beta-read before the posting date. It must focus on or revolve around a het pairing of your choosing. 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!); b) give me your e-mail address.; and c) Then go to join [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang AND friend the community. You *must* join and friend for updates; it's a requirement to participate in this challenge.

You MUST declare your fandom/pairing by the sign-up deadline of June 1st. For those that have signed up with several options, or are polling, just remember: by June 1st, I want you to narrow it down to just one option! You are allowed to change your mind at any time, but you must drop a note with me to inform me of the fandom/pairing. Please don't make me hunt you down! Just add a comment to your sign up comment and tell me. Thanks!


Define a qualified het pairing, please!
Any het pairing, any fandom. Crossovers, fusions crossovers 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. 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.


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?
You are allowed to use a WIP in this bigbang if it's less than 10k. Your story cannot have appeared anywhere on the net already. If you have already a couple thousand words of it up somewhere (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 bigbang if you want to. However, the word minimum for co-authored works is 30,000 words.


Do I really have to have my fic be beta-read?
Yes. Dear Gods, yes. A beta reader is a person who reads another person's written work with a critical eye, with the aim of improving grammar, spelling, characterization, and general style of a story before the author posts it up. All participants must get their fiction beta’d by at least one person. Betareading is love, people!


What happens if I can't write that much by the posting deadline?
First, relax and don't panic! You've got until September for finishing this baby off! For writers, this is not a reciprocal challenge, so I'm not going to go chasing after you with a big giant stick if you drop out. It's hard to write this much fic on a deadline! I understand! Don't cry over this or beat yourself up! Usually in these things, at least half of the writers drop out. That's expected. Don't stress yourself; fandom is meant to be fun! But please, please, please - if you need to drop out of this challenge, drop your mod a quick note.

Another note: If you fall short of the 25k, don't panic. Do not sign up with the *intent* of writing anything short of a 25,000 word story, but if you fall a little short, just contact your mod and we'll try to work something out if we can.


TIMELINE

Author Sign Ups - May 1st to June 1st, 12:00 PM (NOON) PST
Optional Checkpoint - July 15th
Writer's Mandatory Checkpoint - August 15th
Artist Claiming - August 20th
Art and Fics Due - September 25th, 12:00 PM (NOON) PST
Debut Date (DD) - September 30th


Just so people are aware, the strict deadline for author sign ups is June 1st, 12:00 PM (NOON) PST. I am going to strictly enforce this time limit, because while this deadline may not be contigent on anything urgent, I wanna reinforce the idea that Deadlines Are Important, and You Should Try To Meet Them. Because later on in this Big Bang, that will be a necessity.
