Hi everyone! We've hit the 24 hour mark for Third Monday 2012 sign-ups. If you're still thinking things over, the time to decide is quickly approaching.

We've added some new names to the character list, so if you're looking to write or read about Dan Patrick, Amy Sedaris, Jon Erpenbach, Paul Dinello, Ezra Klein, and/or Nia-Malika Henderson, now is the time to edit your requests.

You can find the sign up form here. If you need an AO3 invite, just let us know!

Third Monday 2012 sign-ups are open for forty-eight more hours, and, while we appreciate everyone who has signed up so far, we could really use some more participants.

You'll need to be signed in to AO3 in order to see the sign-up form, so if you need an invitation code, here are a few to get you started: Invite 1, Invite 2, and Invite 3.

THIRD MONDAY SIGN-UPS ARE OPEN ON AO3!


This is our first year running the Third Monday exchange on Archive of Our Own (AO3), which means there will be some slight changes to the procedures we've used in years past. However, these changes will ultimately give you, the writer, more control over your work, while making the moderators' jobs much easier.

If you don't have an AO3 account but would like to participate in Third Monday, comment here or e-mail us at mondaythird@gmail.com and we'll send you an invitation code right away. Please include "AO3 Invitation" in the subject of the e-mail and leave the main text blank. We're happy to send invitations to readers as well as writers. Trust us: this is much faster than going through the invite queue -- we have tons of invitations ready and waiting, while the queue will take at least several days.

That's a wrap!

The identities of your Third Monday authors have been revealed and most of stories have been unlocked, so you are now free to post your stories wherever you like. [personal profile] aliya, [personal profile] jamapanama, and I would like to thank everyone who signed-up, wrote, pinch-hit, beta read, or gave feedback, and we'd like to give a warm welcome to everyone who joined Dreamwidth in order to do so. We hope you stick around; there's a lot to do over here.

For anyone uploading to Archive of Our Own, [personal profile] bessemerprocess has added a Third Monday 2011 collection to go with the collections from 2009 and 2010. If you're not an AO3 member and would like to be, just leave a comment here and we'll hook you up with an invite.

Thank you so much for participating, and don't forget: it's never too late to provide feedback!

We got off to a bit of a late start yesterday, but all thirteen Third Monday stories have now been posted! Thank you to everyone who participated, and thank you to everyone who is going to leave awesome feedback for our delightful writers.

If you're wondering why you can't see any of these thirteen wonderful stories, that means you have yet to join the community. You can do this with your LJ name or OpenID or a Dreamwidth account, which you can get without an invite code this week.

Authors, just a quick reminder: since this is a secret exchange, please don't post your story elsewhere or reply to feedback until your identity is revealed on February 28. If you want to play guess-which-story-I-wrote games, you're more than welcome to use the comments on this post, or you can drop a link to your journal here.

If you need to get in touch with us for any reason, you can still reach us at the same Bat-time, same Bat-channel: mondaythird @ gmail.com. (Don't forget to remove the spaces!)

Author's note: I gave the prompt a small steampunk twist, credit to the use of the word 'aeronaut.' It made me think of Rachel up in flying machines along the city's skyline. The story sort of wove around that. A big thank you to my beta, Jess, who was very patient and put a lot of thought into her part.

Time's Up!

sarken: barack and michelle obama fistbump ([politics] fist bump)
[personal profile] sarken
The 11:59 PM Eastern deadline has passed! If you submitted your story but did not get a reply from mondaythird @ gmail.com, that means you should re-submit as soon as possible. Pinch-hits are due by 8:00 PM Eastern on Monday (what time is that?).

If you have not completed your assignment and did not drop out, this may make you ineligible for future rounds of Third Monday. However, next year's moderators will probably look the other way as long as you submit your story before the All Posted announcement goes up Tuesday.

Stories will be posted throughout the day tomorrow. Since this is a secret exchange, please don't post your story elsewhere or reply to feedback until after authors are revealed on February 28. Readers, you will need to join the community to read the stories. You can do this with your LJ name or OpenID or you can create a Dreamwidth account -- for the week of Febraury 21 - Febrauary 28, no invitation code is required.

If there are any problems, comments on this post are screened and our inbox is open.

Hey, gang! This is your just-under 48 hour warning that your beta read, at-least-500-word story is due in the mondaythird @ gmail.com inbox no later than 11:59 PM Eastern on February 20.

If you aren't going to make the deadline, or you find yourself in need of an emergency beta, please e-mail us as soon as possible so that we can get the necessary balls rolling.

Here's the big, bad rules post just in case you have any questions, and as always, the mods can be reached at the email address above with any last-minute questions or issues. Happy cramming writing!
