Hello, all! It's been a little over a month since the prompts were sent out. You still have two months until your story is due, but remember that if you're going to receive art for your story, you must turn in a completed rough draft by May 5
, just a little over a month from now! You can still edit and beta the story afterwards, but it should not have any major revisions because your artist will be working off the version you gave them. You won't be kicked out for not turning in a story by that point, but you'll miss out on being included in the pool of stories for artists to choose from. All the deadlines are in the community userinfo
in case you need to check them.
(And artist signups will be at the end of the month, so art people - you haven't missed it, in case you were worried!)
How are you doing on your story?
Just finishing up, or already done!
I've written some of it, and I'm moving along nicely!
I started it, but now I'm stuckstuckstuck ... help!
I know what I want to write about, but haven't started yet.
I'm brainstorming ideas, but haven't settled on one.
I haven't really thought about it yet.
This check-in is not mandatory, but it would be very helpful to give me an idea of how everyone is doing. If you need some help -- hooking up with a beta, finding someone to brainstorm with -- I am quite open to the idea of using the community to do it; is there any interest in that sort of thing? If you post a comment to this post, keep in mind they're not screened, so don't blow your anonymity. :)
Also, if you're really struggling with your prompt and you're pretty sure you can't get anywhere with it, you can trade it in for another one -- just email me at sga.genficathon at gmail dot com to ask for a new one. I don't want to swap prompts around at the drop of a hat, but if you've been fighting with it for a month and haven't gotten anywhere, I think you're more than welcome to try a new one.
