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!

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!!! :)

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.

Editing Multiple Chapter Fics

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!
