Speaking of Ficathons  
I'm plugging away at revisions of my rarewomen 2013 story today. The first draft was complete last weekend, and the generous beta arrived on Thursday, so I'll get it loaded in time today, but, still, much pushing and pulling and fingers crossed. It's not my usual approach. I wish everyone playing in this ficathon very good luck!

Speaking of ficathons, no one has yet asked any questions about [community profile] fkficfest/fkficfest 2013... and while of course there's no rush — sign-ups are due 05/17 — the silence differs from previous years. I hope that it indicates confidence. I plan to post a reminder to the community on Monday evening.

I plan to post about it on my journals on Wednesday (holiday in Germany with finally some time to spare. :))

Thanks! And a happy May Day to you. :-) Our next holiday (Memorial Day) comes at the end of May, which is why I want to get the assignments out one week before, in case anyone is so motivated as to write over the holiday weekend.

Thank you! Actually it's Labour Day that takes place on May 1. May is full of holidays here. Next week on Thursday we have Ascension and then on May 20 is Pentecoste Monday followed by Corpus Christi on May 30. So almost every week a holiday and then comes the long, long gap with the next holiday being October 3 (Reunion Day).

However, I have to work over the long Pentecoste weekend and attend a conference in Istanbul. So don't worry when you don't instantly receive a squeal of delight from me after sending out the prompts. I probably won't receive them before I'm back.

Well, happy Labor Day, in that case! :-)

Here's hoping that we have delightfully compatible prompts for everyone. If very few people play, we'll all just have to be a touch more open-minded about how people approach prompts...

(Sob.) Let me get this one done first, please! It's playing snakes-and-ladders on me. I'm still on the first draft; and it has to be uploaded by 9 p.m. And this is only a normal length story, too.

After that (and only after that), I'll be able to contemplate heading on to the next marathon ficathon.

I did not at all understand this until it was called out yesterday, but apparently we have all week to tweak; no Rarewomen stories will go live before Saturday.

No, I didn't realize that, either. I got that we'd have some time to tweak; but I figured it was just a few hours before the actual reveal. My fault for not reading the schedule properly, of course.

I also didn't realize that the deadline had been extended till midnight. I was going a bit mad there just before nine: AO3 wasn't loading!

All's well that ends well, though.
