Welcome to the FFnet account for the Castle Winter Hiatus Ficathon 2015!!!
What? Write 30,000 words of Castle FanFic to achieve the Ficathon. The MiniFicathon is 15,000 if aiming for 30k seems a little daunting. (Authors' notes are not counted. Also, FF.net is notoriously difficult for messing with word count so... honor system, guys!) Any genre or rating goes, and a series of related short stories/one-shots is a-okay.
When? Pick up your pens when hiatus starts on 24 November 2015! Ideally you'll publish once a week, but really, more is better! (Prior to that? Plot, plan, brainstorm!) We expect hiatus to end 1 February 2016, so put your pens down then. If the hiatus is longer, we'll extend.
Where? From your desks... On FF.net. Promoted on Twitter and Tumblr.
Who? We want YOU! The Fandom! Fic authors both new and experienced!
How? Write, write, write. One word after the other, whatever it takes. Once you publish a chapter, tag @CastleFicathon #CastleFicathon. We'll follow your story from the ficathon account, plus promote it! On tumblr, please use the tag “Castle Ficathon”.
A certificate of completion (also made by Angie!) and bragging rights will be awarded at the end so that everyone knows you participated in and successfully completed the Winter Ficathon.
Need a beta? We recommend that writers pair up and beta each other’s stories. If you need help finding a beta, let us know and we’ll see what we can do to find you a volunteer.
Looking for previous ficathon entries? They're archived here.
We believe in you!
