It's time for Round 007: Author's Choice of blind_go!
1. Writers interested in submitting for the challenge sign up by commenting to this post by March 21rst. Leave the following information in the comments:
Writing archive: (can be a link to LJ memories, a fic LJ or a separate site)
2. Those who sign-up will be emailed with a unique ID. Submissions should be emailed in the following format:
Subject: [ID number] Title
Attach your fic in .txt format. For a plain text tutorial, please see this post here.
In the body of your email, please include the following:
Themes used: (only if participating in the theme challenge)
If your fic exceeds 10,000 words (or the LiveJournal post word limit), please indicate chapter divisions so that we can post your fic in proper installments. Please also include HTML tags for any formatted text in your fic (e.g. <I> for italics, <B> for bold, <U> for underline). (The mods will certainly double-check to make sure all formatted text is tagged properly prior to posting but it will help us post faster if you include them.)
Regarding collaborations, the mods will be assigning one ID to each participant. If you choose to write a collaboration, we will not include it in a separate pool of IDs but instead will ask that you include the IDs of both writers in your submission. (Unfortunately, that will mean that you will be disqualified from guessing any other fics that your collaborator wrote.) Collaborations will be identified by the double ID, and readers will have to guess both authors correctly. A collaboration will count as one of your submissions.
3. Guidelines for submissions:
- The deadline for submissions is May 4th.
- All fics must be for the Hikaru no Go fandom. Crossovers and AUs are allowed as long as the writing features Hikaru no Go characters.
- Word count should be at least 3500. There is no maximum limit.
- Writers can submit up to THREE submissions.
- Writers may choose to write in their usual style or disguise it as they wish.
4. Fics will be posted in the community through answer_key on May 5th, Hikago Day!. The members of the community will also be supplied with a list of all the authors that wrote for the challenge and their writing archives, in the interest of facilitating the guessing game.
5. Community members will post their guesses in an entry with screened comments. Writers will be allowed to guess for all fics that are not their own. The answers, along with the members with the highest percentage of correct guesses, will be posted on May 15th.
If there are any questions or concerns about submission guidelines and deadlines, please email either mod, chaineddove at gmail.com, sadistic_tensai at comcast.net, or trixiechick75 at gmail.com, or leave a question here.
Sign-up is now open, themes will be up soon! Leave a comment with your LJ username, email, and writing archive link here by March 21rst!!
