NaNoWriMo and SSBB: two great tastes...

Nanowriters: good luck this year! I will be, as usual, living vicariously through you and using it to try to get into the pants of cute writers while not writing a single word of my own. It may be sabotage for them, but it is sexy, sexy sabotage.

But but BUT, in case you didn't know, the next issue of Shousetsu Bang*Bang ([ profile] bb_shousetsu) is a theme-free, no-limit issue. This means that anyone writing ORIGINAL GAY FICTION for their Nano should totally consider submitting their stories to the zine! The deadline for the issue is December 13, which means there's plenty of time for Editcember to polish it up (read: cut out the 5k where you just wrote 'I am a fish' over and over).

The only stipulation is that SSBB needs to have right of first publication. Snippets posted publicly are fine, complete stories in friends-locked/filtered entries are fine, you just can't post it in-full publicly until the issue goes live. Not that bad, right? Oh, and it's strongly recommended that everyone be alive and in love at the end. It's a happy 'zine.

Just thought you Nanowriters might like the chance to get your stories out there in an already-established forum! More views! More comments! That's not even mentioning there's plenty of artists who sign up to illustrate for SSBB (yours truly included), so you could even get your NaNoWriMo story ILLUSTRATED. How cool is that?

[edit: when I say polished up, I mean seriously, cut out all the crap you put in there to make 50k, and also make sure it makes sense, and that it's not offensive, and that you actually want people to read it, and that the unpaid editors won't want to wear my skin for suggesting you submit it. Quality assurance, people. :D]
