AUTHOR CHECK-IN


Hello, Authors!

Time for you to check in and let us know how you're getting on. It's pretty straightforward, really: all you need to do is fill in the poll below.

If you have finished your draft, or are close to finishing it you are welcome to submit it at any time between now and the due date. Just email it to deancasbigbangmod at gmail dot com and include the following information:



Please note that a draft is not considered complete unless the above information is included. Also new for this year, we will be forwarding the drafts directly to the artists ourselves after art claims are finished so make sure that the draft you submit is a draft worth showing to your future artist. (Try not to leave huge, unexplained gaps in the narrative. It's okay to leave a little "thinking I might put another scene here where such-and-such happens," but it should still read like a complete story.)

You are also invited to post a snippet of your fic in the comments if you wish. This is in no way mandatory but please post no more than TWO SENTENCES. We don't want to make it obvious to the artists who is writing what ;)

Poll #2048380 Author Check-In 2016

Congratulations to all the wonderful authors and artists who participated in this year's DCBB!

Stay tuned for a master posting of all of the stories and artwork released during the 2015 challenge period. If you have any feedback you'd like to leave with suggestions for next year's challenge please do so constructively as a response to this post! We look forward to incoming ideas** and will do our best to respond to them!

(**Please bear in mind that the DCBB is and will continue to be a Livejournal-based challenge. We've adapted with the growing shift of fandom towards other websites by allowing artists and authors to post on AO3, Tumblr, etc, but find that Livejournal continues to be the most conducive platform for actively running the challenge as it currently exists.)
