Hey, authors! The time is approaching! Don't forget that the rough draft deadline is coming on Friday, October 1st!*

Okay, now that you're all hyperventilating in a corner, don't panic! :) This doesn't mean that your story must be polished or even fully-drafted by Friday. All you need is a) something meaty for your artist to work with and b) enough progress that you can be reasonably certain that you'll be done by the posting deadline of November 14th, which is still a month and a half away.

You are responsible for sending your story to your artist. Do not send your story to the mods. It's a good idea to connect with your artist first and find out what file format they want -- MS Word? RTF? Google Docs? Whatever works best for them, and for you.

Hey, artists! If you selected a story to illustrate, and don't have anything from your author by midnight, Saturday October 2nd, Pacific Time (click here for the time and date in your area), send an email to the mods right away!

*One last note: The rough draft deadline is for stories that were claimed by artists only. If your story wasn't claimed, if you opted not to try for art, or if you signed up as a writer/artist team, the only deadline you need to be concerned about is the AO3 posting deadline, which again is November 14th. So no worries! You have plenty of time.

Good to know! You and Renay just saved yourself an email full of panic from me, lol.

Same here! The latter half of my draft has a lot of disconnected paragraphs and "[SCENE GOES HERE]."

OMFG WE'RE NOT ALONE

[personal profile] seventhe and I have been like [BLAH BLAH STUFF HAPPENS] ALL OVER THE PLACE so we could at least block in the important stuff. And then go back and add all that unimportant stuff like transitions and subplots, um. Later >.>

Stupid question, but... does the rough draft have to be 20,000 words? My story is over half that right now, and will be even more by October 1, and should have some good scenes for my artist (I've skipped around a bit so it won't be just the beginning)... but I don't think I can make it 20,000 words yet. Is that OK?

I was trying to look it up in the rules but I kept looking in the wrong place.

Yes, thank you, I'm very relieved. And looking forward to a slightly more modest goal.

is the one who actually made the icon. I'm pretty sure it's official art, as there were a bunch of other gym leader icons in the post in similar style, but a quick look at google images didn't turn it up.

It is awesome though.

No claim for me, unfortunately, but that means I have extra time to work in a new plot thread that has been eating at my brain. :-)

I'm glad you won't hurt me if I don't have exactly 17,500 words or more. I've got 13,500 now, and still writing, so I'll probably have more by the time I get home from work on Friday to send the draft off. I just need to get less caught up in wars on dust and get to the actual plot where stuff happens. Exploding kitchens and all. *chuckles* I get too caught up in details sometimes, so while I'm well on the way in word count, I'm not even halfway through my plot outline.
