Alright, so now we're going into the first stage of planning for the fanfic novel. In episode four of Lost in Austen, we learned a few things about what Elizabeth was up to during her time in modern!London. But the girl obviously needs her story to be told--beginning from her discovery of the portal, her decision to exchange places with Amanda, and her final decision to return to modern!London. But who's going to tell this story? That will be up to you. But first, we need some little polls to decide how many writers we'll need, back-up writers, betas, & hand-picked community members will be needed to help flesh out the story. The plan is to have four parts, with each part composed of several chapters. All in all, so a good length would go over the 20, 000 word mark. Who's up to the challenge is a question amongst the polls as well.
How many official writers should we have?
If you answered other for the first question, insert # here.
How many back-up writers should we have?
If you answered other for amount of back-up writers, insert # here.
How many comm. members should be involved in helping build the story?
If you answered 'other' for amount of members, insert # here.
How many betas should be used?
If you answered 'other' for amount of betas, insert # here.
Do you plan on participating in the challenge (i.e. volunteering to write or beta)?
If you answered yes, or even maybe, what would you want to partake in?
For the comm. members, how should one be picked as an aide of the story?
Let's say it would in fact be 'hand-picked members.' Check yes if you'd want to be picked, check no so you take yourself out of the race.
Remember, writers will be voted on. So if you want to be a writer for the novel, come next week you will need to have submitted a small writing entry. All writing entries will then be gathered together on an anonymous basis, & the people will vote on their favorites in a poll. The writers of the entries w/the most votes will then be the writers of the novel. The remaining entries will then be placed in another poll, & the winners of those will be the back-up writers. At this point, I'm not quite sure how we'll choose betas--but I think those will just be rotating volunteers. Questions? Concerns? Suggestions? Want to help organize this with me (you'd still be free to partake in the actual challenge)? Feel free to comment.
