[SPBB WRITERS] Optional check-in

Today is our optional check-in deadline!

This is a chance for you to let us know how things are going. It’s more a personal marker than anything. At this time, we’re accepting feedback, updates on your progress, beta issues — whatever you feel would be helpful. No obligation — use the deadline as you feel is warranted. Our only request is that you consider how your story is progressing. With 2.5 months left, think about:

- Finalizing your idea
- Outlining the story so that you know what’s left to write
- Your word count
- Finding a beta
- Pacing
- Using this community to discuss how it’s going

To check in, e-mail us at southparkbigbang@gmail.com.

If everything’s going well and you’re content to keep going at this time, no worries! We’ll see you on March 1, 2013 for our mandatory check in.

Thanks guys!

We're supposed to talk here, right? Let's talk.

I've been feeling pretty behind on working on my big bang fic. I have about 5k of my draft written, which I wrote like, shortly after I signed up, and I haven't touched since. I'm anticipating being way over the 20k minimum this year, so I was already feeling a little behind. I only had a partial outline, and a vague idea of where I was going. Well, the internet went out for an hour or so today, which sucked, but it gave me some distraction-free time to get my outline finished up. It looks like it's going to have a prologue and four parts, though I'm not sure if these parts are going to be actual chapters, or if I'm just going to blend them together somehow.

This actually kind of intimidated me, seeing it all laid out and where I want to go with it, because I'm kind of getting the feeling that I've bitten off more than I can chew, in terms of content. But I'm desperate to try to write a more complicated fic for once, rather than having Stan and Kyle as like, the only characters. So basically, this is largely experimental, and I'm very worried it's going to blow up in my face.

So, I want to know: what kind of progress have you guys made? How are you feeling about your ideas? Am I the only one starting to feel a little overwhelmed?
