Posting begins today! Yay! Find a masterlist here: fav.me/d6un8f9
. This list has summaries to go with each project, and will provide easy navigation for long stories that post in multiple parts.
I've still got a few people MIA, which is worrying. However, we have enough projects ready to go or immediately promised that I thought we should go ahead. Posting should be once a day, but we may possibly have random gaps if people are still missing deadlines. I never could come up with a specific posting schedule because it's at the point that I can't really trust anyone to submit when they promise to. Some of you have, which is awesome, so sorry to the people who have done the right thing. The rest, come on! Get your work in, or at least tell me when you can!
I also just found out the hard way that the "submit exclusively to group" function no longer exists. Thanks, deviantART. Because I don't want all your work in my gallery, I've created an admin account: ~TTWAdmin which is currently completely empty but which I will ID with information on the project.
Actually, it does exist after all! Sorry to the people I double-posted at.
Projects will go into the category of their medium, usually under "other" (i.e. anything with traditional illustration will go under Traditional Art > Other, anything with Digital will go under Digital Art > Other). I wasn't sure where they would go, and decided to put them in an art category because from personal experience they tend to get more views than anything in a literature gallery.
I was also considering putting them under Traditional or Digital Mixed Media. Does literature count as mixed media? If anyone has a better idea of where to post, do let me know.
Posting will be to the Round One folder in the gallery, and will be copied to the featured folder. Hopefully as we run more rounds, the featured folder will always hold the most recent work.
Okay, so now some important information for you guys once your story posts.Posting To Your Gallery:
You may post to your gallery as soon as I post your compiled PDF, and submit to whatever groups you want. It should turn up in your inbox if you watch the group, but I'll send out notes anyway.
Artists, I imagine, will just want to post their art. Writers may ask permission to take the entire PDF and post it as an illustrated story/poem to their own gallery. At least, they may ask permission to continue to use a piece of cover art as a preview image. Talk to each other, discuss
Thing you have to do after you post:
- Put in your description that it was done for this project and drop a link to the TwoThousandWords group.
- If you are only posting your own work, then you'll probably want to link to the accompaniment and/or the combined PDF.
- Again, if you are only posting your own work, note me a link. I will add it to the description on the PDF for those who want to see or fave just the art or just the literature (obviously, if you're posting both parts of the collaboration, there's no need).
Posting on other websites is cool too, again please with a link back here The 'Extras' Folder:
As soon as your PDF goes up as well, you can start posting to the "extras" folder in #TwoThousandWords
. This folder has several uses.
First, any WIP shots, dismissed sketches, alternate versions, etc. can go in there. No posting before, because it will ruin the surprise
Second, some artists as planning more illustrations, but don't have time to finish them within the deadline. I think this is great. Those artists, please do finish them up whenever you can, upload to your own gallery and submit to the extras folder. Again, I just ask for a link to the Two Thousand Words project and to the PDF that you're adding to.
If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask
So excited to post!
