Help for Holiday Ficathon Mods and Participants!

Everyone wants holiday ficathons to go smoothly, for everyone to get their fic done on time. But defaults happen, people run late, disappointment taints the joy of giving.

To try to help, ficfinishing - a comm devoted to helping authors finish fic - is running a special End of Year Double Round through November and December.

We have a special track called Holiday Ficathons designed specifically to help ficathon authors make their end of year deadlines.

Please help me spread the word so that authors can sign up, get help and get their fic done on time.

We only accept sign ups for a limited number of fandoms (below), however anyone who joins the comm before end of year gets access to members only content including techniques, exercises and other suggestions that can make a difference in getting stories done.

Ficathon comm mods - contact me if you'd be interested in having me post on your comm to encourage your participants to join in. I can provide a graphic to use as a link if you'd like one, especially for your profile.

Fandoms: Numb3rs, Criminal Minds, Heroes, Blood Ties, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Bones, NCIS, Supernatural, Charmed, Blake's 7, Veronica Mars, Psych, Miracles, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel the Series, Firefly/Serenity, House, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis

Seasons ficcings everyone!
