Stories don't have to be finished by then, but we do need your snippets or you won't receive art. Here is how to submit them. Please get in touch by then. We are still missing snippets from a lot of you.

Let's do this!!

Snippets are due in approximately 36 hours, so make sure you get yours in! They are due Sunday, May 14th, at 11:59pm CST. You can go here to find out how to submit your snippets. Thank you to everyone who has already gotten theirs in! Art claims will begin on Wednesday, May 17th. Those who have signed up on the artist interest form will get an email on Tuesday with a heads up on the time.

Hi everyone! I just had a couple of things I wanted to talk about real quick.

First off is communication with mods, i.e. me. At the moment I'm the only mod running things, so unfortunately I can't respond to every comment on every platform. I'm trying my best, but there are a lot of you and I don't have much extra time! That means that I haven't been responding to comments unless I think it really needs response, like questions or drop outs, and often my responses come several days late. So please don't feel put off if you don't get a response from me, especially on check ins! If you really want one and I haven't responded in a couple of days, feel free to send an email and hopefully I can get to that faster.

Secondly, I've updated the FAQ a bit due to some confusion about emails. Basically it says that unfortunately we don't have the time to keep up an email list to send out reminders about deadlines, but please feel free to email us if you need to. If you have any questions about the FAQ update or about emails, don't hesitate to ask!

Lastly, just a few reminders:

  • Snippets are due this Sunday, May 14th, at 11:59pm CST. Instructions on how to submit snippets can be found here.

  • The discussion post is still open for you to post about your story and talk with others about theirs. If you're in a rut and need some help, try it out! And if you're willing to talk with other participatns about their stories, consider tracking the post so you can keep up with the comments.

  • The artist interest form is open until May 14th as well. If you're interested in being first to know about art claims, please be sure to fill it out.

Your snippets are due on Sunday, May 14th at 11:59pm CST, so we’re going to go ahead and start collecting them. This doesn't mean your story has to be complete right now (though you should have 80% of it done by June 18th), it just means we're collecting snippets for when your artist claims you.

What we need from you:

Author Name on AO3 or Fanfiction.net*
Livejournal/Dreamwidth Name*
Story Title
Fandom
Pairings, Characters
Rating
Warnings (Violence, Non-Con/Dub-Con, Incest, Major Character Death, Etc)
Summary


*Your name will not be included on the claims post. This is for organizational purposes.

And three snippets which should be between 500-1000 words each. These will help your artist match the tone of your work, so try to pick excerpts that really encompass the tone and feeling of your story. Please include them directly in the body of the email. Please do not send attachments. Please include ALL of these things in your email with the subject [YOUR NAME] WIP BIG BANG SNIPPETS. Emails can be sent to wipbigbang@gmail.com. If you have multiple fics, please send a separate, numbered email for each one. You will receive a confirmation email once we’ve gotten your email.

To make it easier, here's a copy and paste-able textarea to put in your email:



Failure to send us snippets or an email by May 14th will NOT drop you from the big bang, but you will not receive art for your fic. This is, however, the last switch to change fics, so be sure to send us an email if you would like to do that. If you are bringing in your own artist or would like to opt out of receiving art, please let us know even if you’ve talked to use already. You do NOT have to send snippets if you’re bringing an artist or opting out, but we still need to verify your info.

 Hi everyone!

It's that time again. Welcome to the second Check In! Like the first one, this isn't mandatory, but it is much appreciated by the mods if you would just let us know how you're doing, even if it's only a few words. Comments are screened, so we're the only ones that will see. So come one, come all, come vent, come celebrate, come worry! Let's do this thing! :D

Reminder: snippets are due in two weeks on May 14th. Get crackin' on those fics!

 Hey everyone!

It's time for our first check point! This isn't mandatory, but highly encouraged. We're just seeing how everybody's doing, if there are any concerns we need to be worried about, etc. Comments on this post are screened, so nobody else can see your comment, so feel free to vent as much as you need to. But please let us know how you're doing with that WIP. Any closer to done? Even if it's only a couple of words to assure us you're alive, please check in! :)

Next check point will be April 30th.

There have been some requests in previous years for a post where authors can discuss the fics they're writing for the bang. So this is your chance! You can comment here to talk about your story, get feedback, entice prospective artists, exchange ideas, etc. Feel free to comment on others' posts even if you're not writing for the bang, the more the merrier. This post will remain open for the entire round, so if you decide to change your story in a few weeks or just see this post late, you're still welcome to comment. And if you want to hear more about everyone else's fics, you might want to track this post too.

This is totally optional, but if you'd like to post about your fic, we'd like to listen!

 The sign up period for authors has come to an end! We had 180 people sign up, which is about the same as last year. If you signed up and haven't received a confirmation email, please email us at wipbigbang@gmail.com with your username so we can confirm your sign up. As per requests last year, a post will go up in the next few days where you can discuss your fic if you'd like some community support/involvement/etc. I'm so excited to see the awesome fics you all finish this round :)

We still need artists though! The artist interest form will remain open until May 14th. If you know any artists who might like to create art for the bang, please point them our way!

Hey everyone,

We're having some issues the autoresponder we use to generate confirmation emails. We know that a few of them aren't going through but we have no way to tell which ones aren't. So if you haven't received your confirmation email and it's been 24 hours since your sign up, please shoot us an email at WIPBigBang@gmail.com. If you could also include the username you signed up with it will greatly help us find and resend your confirmation.

Thanks!

Welcome to the fourth annual WIP Big Bang! If you're interested in signing up, make sure you have first read all our FAQs. There are a couple of changes this year, so please give it (and this post) at least a skim even if you’re a returning participant.

Sign ups will be through one of the google forms listed below. If you are planning to do multiple fics, please fill out a separate form for each one just to help us keep organized. This year we are doing something a little different with artist sign ups (so we’d love to hear from you about if you like/don’t like this!). Instead of a sign up for artists, we are doing an “artist interest form.” The way this works is that artists interested in possibly doing art for the bang will fill out the form and we will contact them with art claims details a day or two before the post goes up. That means artist are not technically signed up for the bang until they’ve claimed a fic for art. We’re hoping this will help get fics claimed more quickly, as well as prevent those who are a little hesitant from not filling out the form in fear that they’re going to lock themselves into something.

The only required sections are username, platform, and email, but please fill out as much of the form as you can. It will really help us to keep track of everything. You can contact a mod later if you change your mind on the details of your story, or if you put a few options on the sign up you can narrow it down later. After you sign up, you should receive a confirmation email to the email you put on the form. If you do not receive a confirmation email within 24 hours, please email a mod at wipbigbang@gmail.com.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up now!




Click Here For Author Sign Up Form Signs ups are closed, thank you!
Click Here For Artist Interest Form




Author sign ups will close on Friday, April 7, 2017. Artist interest sign ups will close on May 14th, 2017. All times are 11:59 CST. If you have any questions about sign ups, please feel free to leave a comment here.
