Both my art pieces I did for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang have been claimed! And I got two fabulous writers: [livejournal.com profile] ladyoneill and [livejournal.com profile] antrazi. I can't wait to see what they come up with.

Let the shenanigans commence!

Well, [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang ultimately decided that they were not going to let people dual register as authors and artists. But they say they really need artists much more than authors.

So this year, I decided I would do art. I've never done art for a reverse bang before, but the stuff I've done for big bangs seems to have been well received. And I'm starting to get some real confidence in my Photoshop Mad Skillz(TM) and the quality of my manips. I'm a bit nervous about putting my art out there for people to pick as a writing prompt, but here goes nothin'. I've submitted one piece already; they have an early bird deadline where if you submit your first piece before 10/20, you can submit a second one by 10/27. I'm going to try to get a second one done for that deadline.

Sadly, I can't post the art anywhere until it's been chosen as a prompt by an artist, because it's all supposed to be done anonymously. But I'm getting seriously excited.

Well, this could be a post about my kids starting back to school tomorrow, but it's not.

It's the time of year when a bunch of fanfiction challenges start gearing up! So far, I've signed up for:

Rules & FAQ
Sign Ups: Artist | Writer | Beta

[livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang first has art prompts created and then writers sign up to write those stories. I've done this one for the last two years, and this year they are considering allowing dual sign-ups. If that happens, I'm hoping to submit at least one art prompt as well.

[livejournal.com profile] sga_santa, a secret Santa fanfic exchange in the Stargate Atlantis fandom. This is the tenth year of the challenge and my first participating. Sadly, it will also be the last year they run it, so I'm hoping to make the most of it!

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide! Well, signups haven't started quite yet, but people are starting to brainstorm what fandoms they want to nominate for the exchange. This will be my fourth year participating, and it is one of my absolute FAVORITE fanfiction exchanges.


A 10,000-word big bang for small fandoms!
FAQ | Rules |Authors | Beta/Cheerleader | Affiliate

And finally, [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang. I've participated one way or another in this one since its inception; this will be the fourth round, and I'm hoping to do both writing and art again this year.

That should keep me out of trouble for the fall and winter....

Other bangs I'm hoping to do next year are the [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang, the [livejournal.com profile] scifibigbang, maybe [livejournal.com profile] apocalypsebang. Sadly after this last disappointing round of [livejournal.com profile] mpregbigbang, I don't think I'll be doing art for that anymore; both times now, I've had authors who ended up blowing off their assigned posting dates, and left me hanging to provide art for stories that had no completed draft forthcoming (and in one case, never got posted at all). And someday, I still want to get the [livejournal.com profile] twd_reversebang (Walking Dead) off the ground.

For fanart!

So, in addition to the three challenges I'm currently signed up to write stories for (in order of due dates: [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang, [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang), I'm also signed up to do art for [livejournal.com profile] mpregbigbang (this was my first art attempt last year, and I had a blast doing it, and it's a challenge where they are always short on artists) and plan on doing art for [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang again (as well as writing a story). Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomfest is starting up again, too, and with that I have the option of doing stories OR art. Woot! (Have I mentioned I LURVES me some small fandoms?)

And pretty soon, probably after the first of the year, I need to put my head together with [livejournal.com profile] severina2001 to start seriously working on the Walking Dead reverse bang comm, and get that rolling. As far as I can tell, Walking Dead has no fandom specific fic challenges at ALL. This needs to change.
