Check in tiiiime! How are things going, guys? On track? Off the rails? Smooth sailing? Panic mode? Let us know!

You can either copy and paste the questions below and answer them in a comment (all questions or just some!), or simply leave a comment telling us how things are going. (Reminder that this check in is encouraged but not required.) Feel free to reply to your fellow creators and offer them some cheerleading! ;)

What fandom/pairing are you working on?
Are you going for a Big or Little Bang?
How far are you into the story? (Beginning, middle, end, etc)
How many words?
I am feeling…
Anything else:

As always, check out the help comms on LJ (here) or on DW (here) where all kinds of writing-related events are going on where you can share snippets, brainstorm, flail, block write together, and more.

Also, if you're looking for extra motivation and writing pals, check out the new writing community, hosted by fellow Bang author hunter_king_91, called Writing Frenzy !! :D

Help Communities: We have one on both LJ (het_banghelp) and on DW ([community profile] het_banghelp). Please head over there and give a warm welcome to the wonderful gwenhwyfar1984, who will be running the LJ comm, and the lovely [personal profile] inabsentialuci, who will be running the DW comm. They’ve got all kinds of things planned to help you guys get the most out of this Bang, so be sure to join the comm and hang out! (You must be a member to play, so make sure you officially join the comm of your choice, or both!)

Sign-ups: Author sign-ups are now closed, but Beta and Artist Interest sign-ups are still open, so spread the word far and wide, and grab anybody you can to get in here and sign-up for those roles! And, the official list of authors participating this year is up and full of shiny people! :D

Check-In Posts: New this year, we will be posting multiple, casual check-in posts throughout the Bang. These will be places to not only let us know how things are going with you and your writing, but to check in with your fellow creators!! You can cheer, complain, panic, flail, vent, whatever you need. These will be check-ins that you are encouraged but not required to do. (Exception: The only one you absolutely must participate in is the Mandatory Check-In on August 15.) Casual check-ins will be comment based, while the big Mandatory one will be poll-based and requires emails to us (more on that when the time comes). The first Casual Check-In will be coming up on July 4.

Promo Stuff: To help spread the word about the remaining sign-ups, schedule, etc, check out this promo post or the collection of 2018 banners/icons. We have loads of fab authors who will need art and editors!

Schedule: Reminder that the schedule is as follows. (We are still in the process of officially updating the big fat FAQ post for 2018, but it will be finished and posted soon!)

Timeline
Author Sign Ups - open till June 24th, 12:00 PM (NOON) EST
Mandatory Author Checkpoint - August 15th
Artist Claiming of Big Bang Stories - August 20th
Art and Fics Due - September 26th, 11:59 PM (Midnight) EST
Debut Date (DD) - October 1st


Help: If you have any questions or anything for the mods, you can: (a) leave a message on the Page-A-Mod post, (b) PM traycer_ or red_b_rackham, or (c) email us at thehetbigbang (at) gmail (dot) com.



That's it for now! Now, WRITE LIKE THE WIND, BULLSEYE!!

The June 24th deadline is on the horizon!!

For those of you who may be dangling on the fence trying to decide whether to sign up as an author or not, the deadline is looming ever closer. If it's a plot that's holding you up, head over to this post to leave a comment with possible ideas, and we'll set up a poll for others to help you decide, and you never know, someone may just plant another, possibly better idea. :D Everything is possible!

We're also hanging out over on Dreamwidth. Check out all the interesting story ideas that our DW members have signed up to write!!

And for those of you who are debating if you even want to sign up for a BIG BANG, come on and give it a try! I signed up every year, and only finished a story the first time around. I figured that for me, the worst that will happen is that I don't get it done on time (again!). But hey, if you think you may have time to work on a story for us (and I know some people just have too much going on right now to even consider it), we do have a support group at het_banghelp (open only to challenge participants) where you can find writing events and other posts designed to help you write your story (the schedule will go up soon), not to mention lots of people willing to cheer you on, so you may surprise yourself!

In the meantime, we could really use some help in getting the word out that we need more authors, artists, betas, and cheerleaders, so please consider sending out a signal boost to your friends and comms that allow this type of activity. The more people we get to participate, the more stories and artworks we get to savor!!

Oh, and you can find banners, icons and the codes at this post. And if you have any questions, please feel free to PM either red_b_rackham, or me, traycer_, or leave a comment on the Page a Mod post. We're always happy to respond!! :)

Note from author: This is my first time doing this (it's actually been years since I wrote fanfic, I wrote for the new Battlestar Galactica and Babylon 5 fandoms back in the day). So... I have a few plotbunnies, but I can't figure out which to pick. :-)


Fandoms: Criminal Minds, Witchblade, Star Wars Legends, Start Trek reboot, Supergirl 2015/Arrow
