It's almost time for the Big Crunch, folks! For all our participating authors, please stop in and let us know how you're doing and whether you plan to submit by April 15th.

For those of you who made our 30k Milestone by Feb. 22, here is your banner, courtesy of art by the lovely Red Rahl!

I do hereby swear that I'll probably finish my fic by the deadline. Most likely. Maybe

So....I've been procrastinating/going through a lotta shittake these last couple of months but now I have begun CRUNCHDOWN. I'm at 12.5k after 4 days, I'm writing like I never have before, and I THINK I CAN DO THIS.

So here's a question...where should we submit the rough drafts, once we're done? The gmail account? And, supposing that I'm down to the wire, midnight on April 15th is okay too, right?

YES! Midnight on 4/15 is okay. And yes, you should definitely email the fics to us. bigbangchallenge at gmail, you know the drill.

Good luck, Michi!!!!! I'm excited.

*sticks hand up in a vague sort of way* I should probably have started writing before May 15th.

How first-draft-y can our first drafts be?

First drafts should be complete and coherent stories. Punctuation, grammar and spelling errors of the sort that can be reasonably expected to be fixed during the beta process are fine (i.e. the overall fic should demonstrate a basic grasp of these elements).

I am not on track. I am horribly Not On Track. But wait! I am not panicking. I am hoping against hope (how's that for a cliché?) that I'll be able to make up for lost time (and procrastination I've succumbed to) and make it a photo-finish... or something.

Theoretically, I'm still in, with a word count quite a bit below 30,000, but still trudging on.

Oops this is really late.

I do plan on submitting a fic on the 15th still.
Er...I'm under 30,000 still and its also midterm season at college. I should try not to be so easily distracted... But still expect something from me on the 15th
