Happy Monday everyone! (Well, for some of you, Happy Tuesday!) This week we've got a few things to tackle before I let all the procrastinators (like me) get back to writing.

Important Dates...All right, get your day planners out and mark them down! :D :D

June 1:
Last Day To Change Your Fandom
Last Author Check-In via Story Summaries.

This check in is going to be a little different. If you are going to be able to finish your story, leave a summary (I'll have all the details you'll need to include on Wed.) Leaving a summary is the same as telling us that you're still in the competition; choosing not to leave a summary before the fifteenth of June will result in being dropped. Exceptions can be granted on a case by case basis.

This summary does NOT have to be the one you'll use when you post your fic. These summaries are to let the artists know what stories will be available for them to choose from during Artist Claiming.

June 15
Last Snippet Post
Last Day To Turn In Story Summaries.

Remember, if you do not turn in a summary before this date, you will be dropped. Exceptions can be made on a case by case basis.

June 24
Artist Claiming Pre-Game Post

This is not the artist claiming post. This will be a showcase of how the artist claims will be organized. Each summary will be numbered and artists will be given the chance to preview the claiming post before claiming begins.

June 30
Writing Periods End

July 1
Artist Claiming Begins

Each summary will be numbered the same way it was numbered on the pre-game post. Each artist will choose their top three selections. Artists will be given one of these choices on a first come first serve basis. Claiming will end either on the 8th of July or after every artist that is signed up has made a selection. Claiming will reopen on the 9th of July. At this time, artists will be able to choose any of as many of the unclaimed stories as they want.

Rough Drafts Due Before Midnight

If you do not turn in a rough draft before midnight, you will be dropped -- unless you are in some other contact with a mod before this time. Rough drafts will be sent to our email (we'll give more detailed instructions closer to the date) and we'll send it off to the artists for you.

August 1
Art and Stories Due

Authors: if you have not been in contact with the artist or the artist has not gotten in contact with you, please contact a mod before this date.

Artists: if you have not been in contact with the author or the author has not gotten in contact with you, please contact a mod before this date.

Whew! OK, that's it for the dates!
Now, it's that time of year when I ask y'all if you want to do a massive story post (i.e. everyone posts on the same day) or have it spread out over a two week time period (i.e. authors claim a posting date).  So, it's polling time!  As with the previous years, majority rules...The poll will close in one week so let your voice be heard. :D
Poll #1747020 Posting for 2011

We should totally post...

all at once!
a few at a time!
Also, I know some of you are finished with your fics. (I am totally jealous.) If you are finished with your rough draft, please drop us a line here so that we can start getting an accurate head count of how many people will be posting a story.
I know a lot of information in this post. If you have any questions, just give us a shout.  As always, have a wonderful week and happy creating!
