This is MANDATORY. All artists need to check in here so we can have an idea of how they are doing. At this time you DO NOT need to send anything in, just leave a comment.

Please fill out the following by January 11th (that gives you a week). If you haven't filled it in by then we will email you, if we do not get a response from you by the time art drafts are due you will be defaulted on your assignment and it will be given to a pinch hitter.




Authors and artists, make sure you are a member of this community and are watching it.

ROUGH DRAFTS ARE DUE TODAY!!!


To turn in your rough draft follow the instructions at this post. Don't worry too much about the time, as long as its the 5th somewhere in the world we will accept your rough draft.

If you need a bit more time to get yours in or might be late please let me know either here, by PM, or by email. The claims post will go up on the 7th so artists have some time to preview the summaries before claims open (on the 8th) so please get it in by then.


Good luck to everyone and if you have any questions at all please ask here.

Star Trek - Kirk captains chair
Rough drafts are due soon, you have until December 5th, 2012 to turn in your rough draft for Round 3 of the Holmes Big Bang challenge, which is a little over 2 weeks from now. First off, to answer some questions authors might have.

- We would love it if you could turn in a minimum word count of 10,000, but IF you are ABSOLUTELY sure you will have your fic finished and more than 15,000 words by January 20th then turn in the information we ask along with whatever you have. This is important because you have to be sure you will finish, all rough drafts will be going up to get claimed by an artist.

- No one but the mods will see what you turn in. Once claims are done we will make a post to the community with the Author/Artist match up and authors will be responsible to sending their story to them.

- You can turn in more than one fic for this challenge. We don't frown on this, its not a problem at all. If you are turning in more than one fic please send each in separately.

- The summaries are important! This is what potential artists will be reading to claim a story for art. So please take your time, proofread it, and make sure its something that you think reflects your fic well.

- If you aren’t sure that you can complete your story by the final due date but want to try you can join the Unofficial Track. What this means is your story will not be include in the claims post but if you manage to finish it by the final due date we will find an artist for you and you can post along with everyone else. To join that send in your draft according to the instructions bellow just with Unofficial in the subject line of the email.

Now, to turn in your rough draft for this challenge please follow these instructions:

Email to:
sherlockholmesbigbang@gmail.com

Subject line of email:
Rough Draft – Title - LJ Username

Body:



Please keep the coding in your email, it makes it easier for us to just copy and paste this into the claiming post. The only things that will be taken out is the LJ username, percent complete, and current word count.

Then add your fic as an attachment, we would prefer it if you had it as an .doc but we can take .docx and .rtf


We will email you back confirming we have gotten the fic. This may not be immediate so please don't worry. If you have any questions at all or need any help leave a comment in this post. Finally, if you don't believe you will be able to complete this challenge please drop a comment at this post or email us to let us know so we can remove you from the spreadsheet (and stop bugging you with emails ;D)
16th-Nov-2012 06:17 pm - Checkpoint #3 (the last!)
Sherlock - Sherlock/John green
This is it! We've now reached the last checkpoint for this round. What that means is coming up (December 5th to be exact) rough drafts will be due. So about now is the time to buckle down and see if you can reach 80% or more in time! (If not don't worry, there will be an Unofficial track authors can join where they won't go into claims but will have to the final due date, a sort of second chance ;D).

Here is how the checkpoint will work. We are keeping a list of everyone who has signed up. We would like to add to the list current Author word counts so that is what we need from you. Comment to the post with the below filled out. Only skip what you aren't sure about yet.

Author:
Current Fic Word Count:
Type: (gen, het, slash)
What I Like About the Story:
What I Don’t Like About the Story:
Anything Else: (personal issues that are making it hard to write, need someone to read through what you have and give feedback, need to rant a little?)



Congratulations to those that are on track and to those that aren't. We are almost there!
