I hope you're all having fun writing, brainstorming, or else doing whatever you're doing entirely unrelated to this challenge. Just wanted to drop you all a quick line to discuss a few things.
First, it was brought to my attention that I never mentioned the policing on dropping claims. If you have to drop a claim, feel free to leave a comment on this post, in the claiming post, or even on the "Ask a Question" post (linked to at the top of the community). And never fear - there is no penalty for dropping a claim.
If you must abandon your prompt this time but you're free to get one on the next challenge, do so! As I've said, this community is all about getting more Harry/Ron fic out there, so I'd much rather you come back and write something when you can then keep you from doing it because something came up before.
Second, I'm quite pleased with the turnout we've already had. We have eight prompts already claimed, and the community is now being watched by 25 people! It's really impressive to me, for a community that is so new. However, if you know anyone else who might be interested in writing fic or at least joining the community, please pimp this community
out on your journal or other communities that would welcome such advertisement.
Just let people know that, obviously, our name is kinghero_rwhp
and our first fic claiming post can be found right [here]
, for those who don't feel like clicking the link to c&p). We have plenty of prompts left to choose from, and if we should, by some miracle, get too many people, I will expand the claiming post with more prompts.Remember to have fun doing this!
This isn't about pressure and stress, it's about Ron/Harry. With that in mind, a reminder that the deadline is Saturday, November 8th, but don't fret if you can't get your fic done in time. Also, if you need a beta and don't have one available to you, I can beta your fic at firstname.lastname@example.orgSpeaking of which, roelliej, I just replied to your email. Sorry for the delay...I was having the hardest time with gmail, but I've cleared it up now.
