Happy New Year's, Big Bang participants!

Here's hoping you rang in the new year in style--frantically pounding out those words to make the [livejournal.com profile] house_bigbang deadline, only one week away!

That's right, this is your last reminder post for COMPLETE DRAFTS, that is, a finished story at least 20 000 words long. It can be awful; it can be unbetaed; there is no judgement here.

How do you continue in the challenge? Simply send a copy of your Big Bang to housebigbangmods@gmail.com. Word, RTF, and plaintext documents are all acceptable; the mods will let you know if a format prevents them from reading the story. The mods will run your story through a word count and read the last paragraph to see if the story has something resembling a conclusion. They shall email you back with praise and congratulations to let you know that you're good to go!

Complete drafts may be sent at any time in the next week. The cut-off time will be 11:59 PM, Wednesday, January 7, 2009, Mountain Standard Time. (That's two hours more than you'd get if your lovely mods worked by the Eastern Standard timezone!)

FINAL DRAFTS, wordperfect, betaed, and typo-free, are due on February 7, 2009. That's another whole month! Calls for betas can be posted to [livejournal.com profile] housebigbangers. Remember, all final drafts MUST be betaed.

Here's hoping your 2009 is off to a rousing start, participants! Good luck in the next week. We here at [livejournal.com profile] house_bigbang can't wait to see your stories.
