Welcome to the first ever Arrow Big Bang!
What is a big bang, you ask? A big bang is a writing challenge where authors write on a particular subject (this one is the CW show Arrow) to the tune of a minimum number of words (our is 15k) in a particular time frame (this one from July through August, with check-ins along the way). Frequently, big bangs will pair up an artist with a story, like this one does, so you’ll have at least one guaranteed piece of ac.
Things you’ll want to know:
You can find perma-links up top for our official twitter feed (where the mods will post reminders as the challenge progresses, be open for questions, and try to raise your confidence levels), the challenge schedule (so you know exactly when that draft is due), and to the LJ Comm where all the action is happening!
Our Ask (Ask a Mod) is always open, too, and don’t worry- there’s no such thing as a stupid question!
