Rules for Submission
Don't worry, these are not hard. I don't get submissions all that often, but when I do, they're sometimes less than stellar. Hence, the reason for the rules. *Standard update day is now every Friday + whenever I feel like it ^_^*
At the very least, run a spell/grammar check.
At best, have it beta read once, if not twice.
Send your story in one of the following formats: an attached file that is .txt or .doc (Microsoft Word file), or copy/paste it into your e-mail. Yes, I can open .zip files, but it's an extra, pain in the ass step.
Don't send me an incomplete story. You don't see many of those here, do you?
If your story is massive, send multiple e-mails. I won't mind, I promise.
Sometimes I post before I read something, but only in the event that you have provided a summary. Keep that in mind if you want your story up like yesterday.
If you don't like the above because you would like my opinion ::snort:: just write that in your e-mail.
Let us also remember that you are submitting something to me, not posting to an ML. I have veto power, so don't be shocked into some seizure if I send your story back for revision. Though, that doesn't happen too often ^_^
If you sent me a story before I put this up, don't worry about it. Just pay attention to these steps from now on, OK?
Sign my guestbook! I'll work faster if you do ^_^ It's not actually required, though.
Like this even needs to be said, but no one appreciates plagiarism, so don't even go there.
This semester I'm in school from 12 - 5 MW, 8 - 8 T, 8 - 4 Th, and 12 - 3 F. Keep that in mind, too.
That should just about cover it, I think. If you need a beta reader, check out the forum at GWAddiction or e-mail me about it. Are you ready?
Good, copy this + e-mail it (minus the stuff I wrote in the blanks):
Name/E-mail: your name/e-mail address for comments + contact
Story Title: duh
Pairings/Warnings: who's with who/wants who, applicable warnings
Summary: optional, but suggested
Section: series, one-shots, PWP/squick, fairytales/parodies/extreme nonsense, unconventional pairs, poetry
URL: if applicable
Other: personal notes (about the story or to me), etc.
P.S. ~ This recently came to my attention, - not really, but I never wanted to admit it out loud - but I have . . .a bias. ::wails:: I know, I am truly that sad. It's not so bad, it's just that I am an orthodox yaoi fan, and have a tendency to prefer fics that are also orthodox. Or, more specifically, I favor 1x2x1. It's not that I won't post fics that are 2x3, 1x4, 1x3, 5x2, etc., I mean, I DO have an Uncon. Pairs section, it's just that I probably won't read them as quickly or not at all. I think that should serve as a warning to both submitting authors and readers, but maybe not 'cause who really cares about my opinion, anyway? That's right. No one. ^_^ K, that's it.
Yes, I am. I followed the steps and everything ^_^
No, I need to go back and change my story, etc.
