ALL OF THE CLAIM EMAILS HAVE BEEN SENT!
Hello everyone, this is just to let you all know that all claim emails have now been sent!
If you do not receive the correct number of emails from us (you should have one email for each fic you signed up to do, so if you’re signed up for two you should have two emails), or if anything else seems odd/wrong please let us know ASAP.
Thank you all and happy collaborating!
Just a reminder
Please post all of your writing/art liveblogging posts to the KHBB liveblog tag, not the KHBB tag so that everyone can keep up with the conversation in the liveblog tag.
Kurt Big Bang claims going out
The KHBB claim emails are going out now. Because we both have different schedules, they may not go out all at once so please don’t panic if you don’t have one yet.
If you don’t have one (or more if you are an artist doing multiple pieces) by tomorrow morning (August 26th), please email us.
Final Warning for Authors and Artists
The Kurt Big Bang artist signups open at midnight tonight. Any author that we have not received a summary from (and there are still quite a few of you) and any artist we have not received a confirmation from is assumed to have dropped out.
If you haven’t sent us a detailed summary and you intend to participate in this bang, you must email us your detailed summary before midnight EST. Once artist claims have been sent out, there is no way for us to add anyone else.
Authors, please check your email and tumblr messages. We’ve contacted anyone whose summary we don’t have.
To All Artists:
We’ve sent you all a welcome email and we need a response from all of you confirming your participation or dropping out. We’re going to need you all to do this, so please email us back now!
This is a final reminder that any author who intends to participate in this big bang MUST send us a detailed synopsis by the end of the day today. As of right now, it’s going to be a very small event because you guys haven’t sent us your synopses.
Check in #2 is open!
We’ve decided to open the second check in a bit early (it will still be open until the 17th) to give people more time.
Please read the check in post very carefully as it is different than last time. Everyone will need to check in on LJ and email us a detailed synopsis.
It is important that all authors be aware that artist claims open August 20th. If you do not complete both parts of the check in, you will not be included in artist claims and will not be able to participate in the Bang.
CALL FOR ARTISTS
We’re only a few days away from the end of artist sign ups, and we’re still a handful of artists short. Please consider signing up and help us spread the word so that we can make sure that every fic gets art!
Artist sign ups can be found at the livejournal.
Second Check In Reminder!
This is just a reminder to all the KHBB Authors that the second check in will be on August 15th. The check in is still mandatory! If you cannot check in by August 17th, please email us ahead of time.
This check in will contain the same information as the first on LJ however, you will also need to send us an email with a detailed synopsis of your fic so that we can prepare the artist claims (do not post this part on LJ). Just a reminder, the artist claims will be anonymous so please respect that and do not plan to work with your friends ahead of time.
You might want to start preparing your detailed synopsis now. It should be a couple hundred words or so (not longer than one page). The idea is to give the authors enough information that they understand what the story is about and can get an idea of what sort of scenes etc. there might be that they can create art for.
Once you send your detailed synopsis, you will be locked in to your fic topic and you and your artist will begin collaborating on art work.
Beta signups are also still open and we encourage you to find a beta very soon if you have not already done so. You are welcome to contact us if you need any help!
As always, we are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Please spread the word! The Kurt Big Bang is still in need of artists to make sure that every fic gets art! Artist signups close in August 15th, so please go over to Kurt-bigbang.livejournal.com and sign up!
