Hey, participants!

Please put your hands together for the newly created [livejournal.com profile] housebigbangers, a support community for all writers, artists, betas, and cheerleaders. Post your woes, your triumphs, your questions, your off-topic diversions that take you off on wild tangents. More individualized requests for betas and cheerleading can also happen in this community.

This one comes to you courtesy of a suggestion by [livejournal.com profile] usomitai, so many thanks to her.

Also, one final note: as we get nearer to the middle of the challenge, and people are beginning to have sections of their stories complete, we'd just like to remind people that sharing the stories should be limited to small beta groups only. We want the stories to be shiny and fresh when they're posted, so please don't ruin the surprise!

This is the post containing the details for those who have volunteered their beta services, and also those who have requested a beta. Thank you very much to [livejournal.com profile] joe_pike_junior, who compiled the information, and to [livejournal.com profile] the_xarlster for the suggestion. If you would like to volunteer as a beta, the sign-up post is still here Thank you to all our volunteers!

Hi, Big Bang Participants!

This post is just a nudge to mention that, as of October 15, we're one month into the challenge! How much have you written? Are you finished your twenty thousand, or have you not started at all? Do you need a cheerleader or a hand-holder? Are you ready to brag, or do you need to scream out to the heavens in despair? Either way, this is the post to do it in!

In other news, we've had a very gracious offer from [livejournal.com profile] silja_b to act as a medical beta for those who might need it. The medicine, of course, is a huge part of a plotty House fic. [livejournal.com profile] silja_b may not have time to accommodate everyone who asks, but she has a post here where you can find out the details. [livejournal.com profile] raiining has also volunteered, and you can ask her for more information here.

If other members of the community feel they could also offer their services as medical betas, that's always appreciated. Email the [livejournal.com profile] house_bigbang mods at housebigbangmods@gmail.com, or drop a comment here or at the Beta Volunteer Post.

Good luck, everyone, as we head into our second month!

Please comment here to request a beta or volunteer your services as a beta. You may want to include the following things in your comment:

1. What kind of story you're writing (girlslash, boyslash, het, gen, characters, rating).
2. What kind of beta you're looking for (plot, story, characterization, grammar, style, etc.)
3. What kind of beta you can provide.
4. Links to previous stories you've written.
5. When you plan to be ready with your rough draft.

Any other information you want to provide is fine too.

Folks, remember that we're trying to keep beta/audiencing groups smallish, so that the surprise is greater when the stories are revealed--but don't let that stop you from asking for support from our beta volunteers as necessary. They're there for you.

If you'd like to be a cheerleader, post here as well! Writers need plenty of encouragement. If you'd like to be someone writers can go to for a general pick-me-up or handholding, let us know here. Writers, if you're stuck and need to flail at someone who'll listen, ask one of our cheerleaders.
