Second Check-In

The deadline is fast approaching. Stories are due Nov. 1. By now you should be wrapping up and sending your story to your beta(s).

Feel free to post early. You can either post directly to the comm or link off to your own website/journal - whatever works better for you. If posting the full text to the community, please try to do so in as few posts as possible.

Please use the following format when posting:

Subject: [Story Title] by [Author's Name] ([Rating])

Pairing: (if applicable)
Genre: (optional)

Tag with '2009 challenge', 'author: [your lj name]', and 'fandom: [fandom]'. If you have problems creating tags, drop a comment here and I'll add it for you.

Just so that I'm clear, we can post our fics anytime between now and Nov. 1? Mine has been done for awhile now and I'd love to just go ahead and post it (mostly so that I can stop worrying about keeping deadlines straight--I'm currently participating in three big bangs and all have different rules and deadlines) if that's okay.

Just in case, to save comments, I'll need a author: guest_age tag and a fandom: fired up! tag. Thank you!

I apologize, but with pregnancy my brain has become swiss cheese and I forgot about this challenge after the last check in, I don't have anywhere near a complete story and I'll have to pull out.

Alright. Thanks for letting me know, and congratulations on your pregnancy. ^_^

SFBB Check In
I'm lagging a bit behind, however I've finally cleared my most of my other big bangs off the table and have time clear this month to concentrate on this fic so I'm confident I'll make it by the first. I have a SPaG beta and a content beta already so I'm good. I may post on November 1st if that's okay, as the last day of every month is reserved for my EOM Journal Review.

Re: SFBB Check In
No problem. I imagine most people will be waiting until Nov 1 to post. ^_^

Also, I'm not sure why, because I'm a member of the comm, but it won't let me post. Any chance I've been blocked somehow by accident or something?

Edit: Never mind. I left the community and then re-joined and now I have posting access again. Don't know what that was about, but it's fixed now.

Glad it's working for you now. Posting access should be allowed for all members, but I'll go double-check the permission for existing members. Thanks for letting me know.

No problem. It wouldn't let me create an author & fandom tag, though.
Oct. 19th, 2009 03:12 am (UTC)
Tagged for you.

Thanks! :-D

I'm really really sorry but as I'm nowhere near 20,000 words I'm going to have to drop out.
Oct. 31st, 2009 02:00 am (UTC)
Thanks for letting us know.

I'm going to go ahead and drop out. I have a RL deadline that's made it impossible to meet the November 1st deadline for my fic.

Apologies and thanks for all your work on this comm.
