Just a quick note to say that I have fallen behind schedule (apologies, guys!!), but the art claims will be going up today or tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled!! Claims will be on a first come, first serve basis. Pinch Hit Artist sign-ups will also be going up soon, for those interested and able to be Pinch Hitters.

Artists: I wanted to ask you guys' opinions about art claims: something I've seen done at other Bangs is all the summaries go up on a "preview" basis for about a day, so everyone can see what's up for grabs, and think over their choices. Then claims are opened and everyone can comment with their first and second choices. Is this something you guys would be interested in doing, or keep it the same as always (especially since the claims post will be going up a couple days later than usual)? Comment below with your thoughts!

Happy Birthday!

Just a reminder that the poll for the Mandatory Check-In closes tonight at 11:59 p.m. If you signed up to write a story for this challenge, please take a few moments to answer the questions in the poll to let us know whether you are still writing a fic, or if you've decided to drop out. Anyone who signed up, but doesn't complete the poll will automatically be considered dropped out.

Also, if you're writing a Big Bang fic, don't forget to send us your snippets. If you want an artist to create artwork for your story, we will need that by the the 18th as well.

We're heading into the home stretch now and I am super excited! I can't wait for the debut date!!! :)

A/n: My second art entry for [community profile] wipbigbang! The summary of this fab fic by [personal profile] afteriwake snagged my attention and I had to scoop it up for arting. :D Legit I had SO much fun doing the title art - 'shopping magic into Sherlock and Moriarty's hands, then creating the glow of it on their hands and clothes might've been my fav thing in any Bang art I did this summer. XD I don't even know why, I just was literally giggling with glee over it as I painted and layered and made the glow happen.

I worried about pulling off the awesome visual of the floating, magic/energy filled room when Sherlock loses himself in his violining, but it was such a beautiful moment, I had to try, going with something more visually colorful to represent more of the feel of the moment than what actually physically was "shown", if that makes sense.

Huge thanks to [personal profile] afteriwake for being a lovely, lovely Bang partner! <3

Fic Title: Never Will I Forget The Deep Shadows, Never WIll I Waste The Moon's Light
Fic Summary: The Holmes brothers come from a long line of powerful magic practitioners, but they are forced to keep their skills a secret. When Molly accidentally finds out about Sherlock’s powers and doesn’t turn away from him he slowly realizes that this pleases him, but soon enough he gets careless and is put in a position he would rather not be in, especially when others find out that she knows and attempt to use her as a pawn in their own games and machinations.

it calls me and no one knows )

On a roll

I now have 36 DVDs (movies and TV shows), books, and some random objects listed on eBay, all using my own photos. I did the DVDs as Buy it Now/Best Offer with free shipping but the books do not include shipping. Check them out.

This is my first time selling stuff on eBay, so if you have any tips after looking over the listings, I'm open to suggestions.

Whatever doesn't sell will get donated to More Than Words (a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business).

Last night I also boxed up almost 80 CDs to get shipped to SecondSpin.com and just need to find a box to send another 22 CDs to Decluttr.

And yes, I did drop off my 10 bags of clothes, shoes, and purses at Sister Thrift yesterday.

I'm making some very nice progress with my purging.

Fingers crossed that the eBay stuff actually sells.

Happy Birthday!

Writers' Mandatory Check-In

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.

Random info you probably already know )

In lieu of other content...

Editing Multiple Chapter Fics

Jul. 13th, 2017 03:30 pm
[personal profile] mitchpell posting in [community profile] be_compromised
Hey Best Bar!

A while back I got some really great advice on how overcome the over-editing monster. I have a follow up question to that point. When do you guys edit multiple chapter fics? At the end of each chapter or at the very end of the story? I took a leap and entered into this years Marvelbigbang. I'm doing pretty good at not editing while actively writing. But I'm close to being finished with chapter one hence the question. Personally I feel that if I wait until the end of the novella I'll be too far removed from chapter one. Anyway, I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

Thanks all!

Happy Birthday!
