Mini-BigBang!

I just finished my rough draft for the Sam and Dean Mini-BigBang. It's only 9.1k words right now, but I'm sure it'll expand to 10k in the edits. And it's all thanks to locknkey, who was kind enough to seriously kick my ass after an alpha read and show me where I was going wrong.

Why yes, it is 5:30 in the morning. But I had to send it to the mods before I leave for Vividcon tomorrow.

Can't believe I got it done! So excited now! *dances*

Awesome and congrats! This is brilliant news. If you need a beta, you know where to find me.

I'm at about 6k right now, and keeping my fingers crossed.

I completely forgot how close they were until I saw your post. I actually forgot about the challenge entirely. *facepalm* Now I'm really, really looking forward to them myself!! :DDDDDDD

Hooray! Congrats on getting a story together. I bailed on this BB - my story just wasn't coming together fast enough and school was coming too fast :D

*nods* Better that you take your time and do it right. I thought for sure this one was going to end up a 5k story, but then, working through locknkey's notes, it expanded like yeasty bread.

Man, you guys start the year early. Due to budget issues, we aren't ALLOWED to go back until September. (We're having a staff retreat on the downlow. It's a mullet retreat: business up-front, party in the back!)

LOL :D We have 16.5 weeks to end mid-December; we're funded at drastically reduced levels and higher student fees but so far no firing/layoff, no pay cuts. But our district is burning through reserves faster than they like so it won't go this well for long.
