Today is the day you're supposed to be done. Are you? I'm not. Let's not sweat it yet though. Since we actually have a very small group doing this, I think this gives us some extra time. We have 2 months from tomorrow until posting day starts. Most of us should be well on our way with ideas and with some of the writing. I think you all should be sorted with a beta AND an artist at this time. If not, let me know and we'll figure it out.

Sooo here is how it's going to go:

Since we do have our betas and artists already, I am going to let you work up until posting time. I will be letting you choose your day to post by the end of August. I will, however, need you to keep in touch here so we know that we are all on the same page. I will post an update/checkin thread every week and if you've got issues or just want some encouragement, that's the place to put them.

This is this week's update.

So how is it going and are we all sorted out now?

Okie Dokie

Who is done with their story? I am not. Since we are a small group, we do not have to be so strict anyway so you have time. Not really worried about that. I do need to know how many of you are still in at this point.

We only have 3-4 artists signed up and 12 stories sooo if you know someone who does any sort of art - graphic art, photo manip or actual drawing and painting, PLEASE send them our way! We desperately need more artists. I am leaving artist signups open for awhile. IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE ARTISTS, LOOK OVER THE SIGNUPS AND CHOOSE A WRITER/STORY IF YOU WOULD AND CLAIM IT HERE: http://oeam-bigbang.livejournal.com/38997.html

If you need a BETA, there are 3 listed so far. Check with them. If you would like to beta or know someone who would, please send them here: http://oeam-bigbang.livejournal.com/38216.html We need more of them if possible.

We still plan to start posting on April 1st. I will post a signup for that closer to time.

Please contact me if you have any questions or ideas!

HI all,

Our sign-ups for writing ended on October 5th. We have 14 writers signed up and I think 3 artists so far. Artist sign-ups continue until January 31 so if you know any artists interested, please send them our way. Beta sign-ups are open as well.

I have sort of decided what I want to write but not begun yet. I hope y'all have done better than me! I tend to put off til the last few weeks or so! What is your style?

I didn't have much news but I wanted to check in with you all. If you have questions or comments, please feel free to post them here and I'll get back to you ASAP. On November 1, we have our first author check-in... remember to do that so you won't get dropped.

Happy writing!

HI all!

We are 15 days into our signups for writers and we have 7 writers so far and I make 8 but we need lots and lots more! If you know any writers who love to write Big Bangs, send them along. We have several fandoms available and we are looking for more writers and artists. Please feel free to share the info and the sign-up link on your journals and at any groups who will allow it as well.

We have 30 more days of signup time for writers and artist signups begin today as well. Writing time begins October 30 so you have plenty of time to research and plot before you begin writing.

I cleaned up the community a bit and added tags for all stories from the previous Big Bangs plus a tag for art that was done for a story never posted. I deleted one story from a person who evidently has disappeared altogether from here and Ao3. I will leave all the various mods posts for reference, if nothing else.

If you have questions, ask away here or send me a PM and I'll be happy to help.

HI all!

How is it going? How many words so far? Feel free to brag or complain or even whine here if you need to! We'll cheer you on if you need us to! We do need a few more betas to sign up and please round up any artists you know who'd like to do some art for us! We need a bunch of both.

Beta signup post: http://oeam-bigbang.livejournal.com/19982.html
Artist signup post: http://oeam-bigbang.livejournal.com/19380.html

I've got bupkus, nada! Not even an idea! Well, okay, a tiny little idea but it's sooooo small right now I don't dare talk about it for fear the flame will go out.

Out next date is November 1st for the first author check in. Please remember that check-in is mandatory. I will send a reminder if you do not check in and after 3-5 days, you will be deleted from this year's challenge.

In the next few days, I will try to get a table made up as well as assign a few betas to those who need them early. I need you to add your summary to your signup post as soon as you know what it is.


Good luck and good night!

HI all~

Only ONE week left to sign up for the 2nd Annual OEAM Big Bang then the fun begins. Next Sunday, Sept 30, will be the last day to sign up to write. Beta signups and Writing time begins October 1. We have 16 signups so far and I intend to signup but we'd love lots more so I'd love you all to promote wherever you are! I have a big ol' banner you can use that links back to the main page - send me an email for the html.

We have one beta so far so if you can beta or you know someone who'd like to, please have them sign up. The signup post will go up tomorrow. I am betaing for one person and might take on one more.

Artists have a long time to sign up, through January. If you want to do art as well, please do. If you know some artists, send them along to sign up! Remember, the art can be original, digital or Photoshopped stuff so you have plenty of leeway.

A couple of things:
-- I'd like to have the stories or a link to them posted here when the posting time comes.
-- We have a Collection at Ao3 and I have a few more codes that I can give out closer to posting time if you don't have one. I'd love to have them all posted there too.
-- If you have a co-writer, they need to signup too.

That's all I can think of right now. If you've got questions, ask them here or PM me. PM me with your email if you want a banner with html. I know some of you have your emails on your signups so I can get them there.

Here is the banner:

Just thought I’d do an update. Our signups began a week ago and we have 8 people already signed up and I will count me as 9. I’ve not yet decided on my fandom.

We need you all to pimp the OEAM Big Bang. Here is our community address: http://oeam-bigbang.livejournal.com/profile and here is the signup post: http://oeam-bigbang.livejournal.com/18544.html.

Here is the “info:” )

I might need some mods to help me corral this thing if we have lots of participants. Just send me a PM if you’d like to help.

Questions? Send me a message.

Just a few things here:

1. You all need to pick your posting day here: http://oeam-bigbang.livejournal.com/10713.html You need to do this ASAP. I think 4 a day will do it so first come, first served. Pick a backup day too.

2. If you need an Archive of Our Own code, send me your emial addy at alex _ cat _ 45 @ yahoo dot com. The code will come from Ao3 in your email so once you've sent me the addy you want it sent to, watch for it so it doesn't end up in your spam box.

3. Artists should be about finished too and artwork should be in the hands of the writer at least a day or two before posting time. If you've not heard from your artist. let me know.

4. Do not post your story anywhere else until it has been posted at THIS community and our Ao3 community. You may link from Ao3 to the comm. I'll give you a header to use here before posting day. I hope you will post to OEAM too... you might need to break things up into chapters there but we'd love to read your work.

Squee! I can't wait!

HI all,

Due to so many people needing a few more days and such, I’m extending our time until Feb. 21. This will get us past the Slashy Santa Valentine exchange and maybe some of you might still have a chance to finish who would have otherwise quit.

I am still planning on leaving artist claims until Feb.1. We will simply push posting back to begin Feb. 21. When your fic is done or when you have a draft that you feel is good enough for your artist to work with, send me your file and I will forward it to your artist.

If you are planning on doing your own art, please make sure that you are signed up and that you claim it just as if you were claiming any fic. If you have your own artist, please make sure they sign up or their art will not be postable. I will extend artists sign-up until Feb. 1 also.

You should all have betas but if you do not, let me know and we will find you one.

If you have ANY questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Okay… can I get a head count? 

I’m still in!

January 1 – Artist Claims Begin
January 31 – Beta’d stories due
February 1 – Work on Edits
February 21 – Art/Stories Due
February 21 – Posting Begins

Well, we've got 15 more writing days left and I am just past half done. How are y'all doing?

Thought since I can't sleep that I'd do a bit of housekeeping. Our last check-in was Dec.1 or there around and I still need to hear from these folks:
[livejournal.com profile] zhie
[livejournal.com profile] menel
[livejournal.com profile] essenja_08
[livejournal.com profile] torezhan

We also need summaries for:
[livejournal.com profile] menel
[livejournal.com profile] torezhan

I am about to go through the artist list and see what we have. If you know any artists who'd like to join, send them along. The artist sign-ups end on the last day of writing, Dec. 31. Rough drafts should be sent to beta no later than Jan. 1 but I will leave that to you as long as I get a copy of the final or even a rough draft for the artists by Jan 16.
EDIT: We will need artists who can do art for QaF and Sherlock Holmes as well as the ones we have. We also have less artists than writers so we may need some who can double up.

So that's where we are.

Happy writing and Happy Holidays to you all!
