Second Check-In

The weather is getting cooler (here in the northern hemisphere at least), the pumpkin spice is in full swing, and the second SCBB check-in deadline is approaching on OCTOBER 22.

For this check-in, we're looking for evidence that you and your partner are making progress on your collaboration. We'd like to see at least one of two things.

  1. A fic rough draft that is ideally one-third to one-half toward being complete. If it's less than that, please don't panic; you won't be penalized! Just send us what you have so far so we have confirmation you're on the right track.

  2. Art rough draft that is ideally one-third to one-half toward being complete. Again, if it's less than that, just send what you have.

We'd like everyone, both artists and authors, to send an email to with your draft attached. (Or if one person wants to send us both fic and art, that's fine too!) The ideal is that both the artist and the author have drafts to send, but as long as one or the other can show they're making progress, we'll check off your group. If you don't have a draft to send, just shoot us an email confirming you're still in the challenge and that you intend to start very soon.

As always, if you think you need to drop out, let us know so we can accomodate.

We'll be happy to start taking drafts as soon as you can send them. If we haven't heard from you by Oct. 22, we'll start sending emails to remind people to check in.

Thanks guys!

First Check In

Hello all!

We've come up on our first check in of SCBB. Everyone, artists and writers, needs to send in a form.

Here is the link!

This is just a quick touching base to see where people are in their projects and if there are any issues we can help address. If you think you need to bow out (which is perfectly fine; we know life happens), now is a good time to let us know.

We'll have the check in form posted until this time next week to give people time to fill it out. If you do not check in, we will contact you one last time to see if you still want to be part of the challenge and assume that you've had to drop out if we don't get a reply.

As a side note, we've made a minor change to the schedule. We originally had drafts due in Sept, but have deleted that event. Now, we're going to ask for some sign of progress in the second check in, Oct 22.

Additionally, if you have an excerpt or sketch you'd like to share with us in the comments below, please feel free to do so! We're excited to get a taste of what you guys are working on.

Signups are also still open and will be into July 10.

Happy creating!

Last Few Things

Hey guys! Claims open up in a few hours, but we wanted to discuss some things beforehand to hopefully make the process go smoothly. Because there are more authors, claiming will be a little different between artists and authors.

If you are an AUTHOR: When claiming, you'll be given a list of the artists and you can check off the ones you'd be willing to work with. Pick at least three as per usual but you can throw in another couple as backup in case your top three aren't available. Then, at the bottom, you'll be able to clarify which ones are your top picks.

If you are an ARTIST: look over the author profiles and pick out three that you’d be willing to work with. Also, if you know at this time that you’d be willing to do more than one collaboration, feel free to make note of a few extra profiles. When we ask who you want to work with, there will be a spot where you can add in that you’d like to do multiples.

We'll sift through peoples' preferences and send out emails about partners. Please keep an eye on your email accounts over the next few days! Also, while you can start putting in requests today, we're not going to start confirming pairings until June 2. We just want to make sure there's no confusion, and that we have everything organized.

As always, questions are welcome.
