So, uh. Out of total curiosity, who else is super behind or hasn't yet really started their fic? XD

(I have less than 500 words. Send words, preferably nouns and verbs.)

A sound-off post is a place where you can comment discussing anything related to your project and/or your support role in the Ladies' BigBang challenge.

We're nearing the home stretch, so, tell us -- how are things wrapping up for you? Who's hoping to submit a final draft? Is your project cooperating or resisting coming into its final shape?

Any and all topics fair game, including but not limited to: venting, progress reports, celebrating said progress, panicking, etc.

Hey, creators! Got some tidbit of your project that you'd like to share with us? This is the place for it.

This is a post where creators can post a small preview/snippet of their work (e.g. a handful of icons, a scene of fic, some thumbnails of graphics, etc.). You're also welcome to summarize your project if that's more your style.

If you're not sure if what you're working on at this point will be what you turn in at the end, that's fine, we're not going to check. This is just a place to share some of what you've got.

And chatting amongst yourselves in the comments is, as always, encouraged!

An unofficial sound-off post is a place where you can comment discussing anything related to your project and/or your support role in the Ladies' BigBang challenge.

For example: run into any challenges? Got more done than you thought you would? Project turn in a different direction? Figuring out what works for you as a cheerleader? Any thoughts on betaing a medium you've never beta'd before? Anything goes, and of course feel free to talk amongst yourselves in the comments.

I lost all of June for writing, because of my head space. I'm still fighting for words currently.

And made the mistake of looking at the due dates. I now have 19 days to produce 6600 words, and I am so afraid I will not do it. I love this project, the whole idea of the BigBang, but OMG, stress!

Anyone else in this boat?

Hello! I'm a creator (or a hopeful one, at least), and I could use a hand. For the Big Bang I'm doing a series of vids, about common themes and tropes used with women in movie genres. I've got several lists of possible sources to use, but my limited and eclectic taste in music is, well, limiting me. I can't decide on any songs to use. I know for sure I want to use only female artists, I have no preference for genre of music, and I know for sure a few of the movie genres I definitely want to feature (Romantic comedy and/or Romance, Superhero, Teen, Classics, Musicals) if I can, but I don't know enough songs or artists, or even where to start, to pick ones.

So, what I'm asking for essentially, are song suggestions, either for the genres I mentioned, for genres I haven't mentioned, or just a song you think would work for anything. Female artists would be really nice too. My iPod is very...Broadway.

Hopefully this isn't against the rules? I wasn't sure if asking for help that wasn't betaing counted as "discussion about difficulties" or not. If it's against the rules I can change the post to something more appropriate.

Also, now that our first check-in is over and some creators have dropped out, leaving betas/cheerleaders floating and some creators betaless/cheerleaderless, we are giving participants the option of freeform matching, i.e. in the comments you can volunteer your services as a beta/cheerleader or you can seek the services of a beta cheerleader. There will be no moderator supervision of this process, so work it out amongst yourselves!

If you are offering betaing/cheerleading support: write "Offering [beta/cheerleading]" in the subject line, and then specify in the comment text what you're willing to do, etc.

If you are seeking betaing/cheerleadering support: write "Seeking [beta/cheerleader]" in the subject line, and then specify in the comment text what your project is and what you're looking for specifically.
