Okay, so we've had some requests for extensions already and I get it. RL can get in the way of anything fun and at times stop you from working on your story. So extensions are possible by a few days. But I am warning everybody this.
Once Artists Claims go up, I will not be adding any late stories. That wouldn't be fair to those who got their stories in on time. (I did do this for the other half of Round 4 but that was to help with authors who had been sitting on their stories for quite some time and had some polishing to do. That is not the case with this round.) And these are only rough drafts, so no worries if it's not complete so long as your artist will understand the plot of the story.
Notes are allowed to be sent to the artists. This is not when you'll be posting your stories just yet. At least have the story 60% done and it should be fine. Snippets (as one author mentioned) are fine. But like I said, you gotta give something to work with for your artist.
# Now. If you would like to be your own artist, that is acceptable. But you will be exempted from having any other artwork done for your story. If you are fine with that, please just email your story info from the rough drafts post without your rough draft attachment, just so that I know you are going to be doing this option least I think you've dropped out/missed the deadline.
(IF you have your own artist for your story, again email the info from the rough draft post without the draft and also include who will be doing your artwork.)
Again, any questions feel free to ask.
