short fandom update

1. I signed up to the WIP Big Bang challenge (2nd year, new mods). This challenge is for writers who have Big Bang-length fics half-written and want extra encouragement to complete them. I signed up with my Rarewomen 2014 Black Jewels fic. On the one hand, that means I won't be posting a continuation to it until July; on the other hand, I wasn't getting much done on it on my own. The community encouragement will help. This was one of the challenges I 'budgeted' for this year.

2. Sign-ups are open for the Night on Fic Mountain challenge, a smaller Yuletide set around the opposite solstice. I am not signing up for that myself, but I am helping with a bit of admin. There are presently 42 sign-ups and I think the tag set has a lot of intriguing options in it.

3. Jukebox sign-ups are open! Jukebox is MY challenge. I'm pretty excited about the prompts I'm seeing, about the number of sign-ups, about the range of songs... Everything!

4. Got a bit done on my Once Upon Fic story today. The night is young. I have a plot in mind, but it's one of those stories where I re-write the start over and over again.

5. I got some glorious gifts for Bad Bang 4. It was a lot of fun. I think I found the right balance to strike in my comments - sort of over-earnestly encouraging, with a little bit of wank now and then. I wanted to join in the game this time, but I didn't want to be Indignant About Things.

6. I am behind on beta'ing. However, I did just finish a long-ish beta job.

7. I did not manage to post a NYR fic in March. Darn. I probably won't manage one for April either, what with various exchanges. However, most of the exchanges I've promised myself are happening in the middle of the year. Maybe I'll catch up to my one-per-month goal.

I would love to sign up for Jukebox! Is that still possible? I'm struggling with the instructions.

Yes, it is and it would be great to have you!

Sign-ups are open until approximately next Wednesday.

The main post about signing up is here: http://jukebox-fest.livejournal.com/16827.html. Sorry about the somewhat garish formatting. The sign-up post has a list of useful links at the top.

Happy to answer further questions.

*Cheers you on* I haven't written nearly as much as I wanted to -- probably literally 1/3 of what I had at this point in time last year -- but y'know, stuff happens.

If you want to keep me in mind for pinch hits for NoFM like last year, by the way, feel free! I'm not joining any official exchanges I don't think, but I like helping out.

Well, since you're writing your thesis and assignments, that doesn't seem too surprising.

Thanks very much, that's very kind of you!

The current sign-up summary is here: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/NightOnFicMountain2015/signups/summary and all requests are visible in the Request Summary as well, so you can see if there's anything you might be able to cover.

In essence, ALL THE EXCHANGES! :P You know, before I found meme, I didn't do any exchanges. This year I think I'm about to mod two exchanges with overlapping timelines *whimper*

*looks guilty*

Not all!!

And I'm sure you'll be fiiiiine. :) Are you doing the Kushiel one again, or the Jane/Loki one?

So you didn't even do Yuletide before meme? I found meme though Yuletide...

OK, most of the spring exchanges :D

I found meme through metafandom and crypto's post, which was around 2010, and I did yuletide for the first time that year too. But it was so long ago I don't actually remember - so maybe my first statement was overblown :P Before I got on LJ around 2009 I mostly just read fic on FFN, which doesn't really do the whole exchanges thing.

Jane/Loki! Hopefully we can get some fanart too this round.
