Bloom: 2/17 - 2/24
Alright everyone, you know it's that time of the week! I had the day off because it's President's Day here in America, and I, personally, wish that every weekend was a three day weekend. That has absolutely nothing to do with anything, but I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day and weekend.
Can you believe that we're getting into the end of February? My birthday is next month so I'm a little excited for that, but I'm a bit nervous about how quickly this year has been passing. Anyway, y'all know the drill.
Please check out Sunflower Writing Circle if interested! We need more members!
Here are the terms in case y'all have forgotten:
- Blooms - the name of our assignments each week rather than just "assignment"
- Seedling Blooms - our first trial assignments
- Sunflower Blooms - our "official" assignments, aka for those not in their first trial
Now to the information we repeat every time in case you've forgotten:
Read two chapters and tag GigiMC_0308 in an in-line comment next to your username
(Look at "Process" chapter)
Note: If in group (three people, not two), read one chapter of each work
Read two chapters and tag Jumping_Jiminys in an in-line comment next to your username
(Look at "Process" chapter)
Yes, always tag JJ (Jumping_Jiminys), even if you're reading a story by a different admin.
**Note to everyone: PLEASE review the "Comments" and "Process" chapters at any time for more information. They're here to help you!
As always, you can ask for an extension or hiatus at any time. More info on both of those is below and in the "Process" chapter. You can also get reassigned or get a permanent partner if you want, and more info on that is also below.
Here are the guidelines:
Guidelines (chapters over 1k words):
- leave 7+ in-line comments in each chapter OR leave a 5+ sentenced final comment in each chapter
- there should always be a final comment in each chapter (only has to be 5 sentences if there aren't 7+ in-line comments)
Guidelines (chapters under 1k words):
- leave 4+ in-line comments in each chapter OR leave a 3+ sentenced final comment in each chapter
- there should always be a final comment in each chapter (only has to be 3 sentences if there aren't 4+ in-line comments)
Let's get to pairings, shall we?
None. I should clarify that you can repair only if neither partner has started their review yet, so it's best if you check out their book ASAP (even if you don't plan on reading it immediately). You can also choose to repair before a bloom is posted. For example, you might really like who you were paired with last week, so you want to repair with them this week. It has to be okay with both of you, but that's perfectly fine. Just let us know before the next bloom is posted.
If you have to read the BotM (you've already been notified if so), please remember to do that by March 1st.
*Note: Seedling members don't get to be a part of the strike system. If a seedling doesn't complete their first trial in time or doesn't ask for an extension, they aren't allowed to join the book club.*
The Girl that Could
The Year Package
Gateway to Aethera
This means that you have asked for an extension of your last bloom, meaning your didn't complete it in time but want more time. Those who have asked for an extension and haven't finished their bloom by now won't have a new bloom this week, only their old bloom. Extensions only last up to two weeks, and they're not renewed automatically. If you've finished your extended bloom, you can comment done in-line next to your username in this chapter.
Week 1: Drem47
This means that you have asked for a hiatus, look at the "Process" chapter for more information. If you've asked for a hiatus, your username will also appear under here. A flower is next to your name if you didn't finish your last bloom and are on a hiatus. After you've been on hiatus for four blooms (one month), you will be asked to leave or rejoin.
Week 1: shashi1903
This means that you didn't complete your previous bloom and didn't ask for an extension. You will not be assigned anything new until you complete your old bloom. Each bloom (every week) that you haven't completed it, another strike will be added. Three strikes and you're out. Remember that your strikes never clear. Please check your PM.
*Note - These are only people who currently have an unfinished bloom. Some of you may have strikes that aren't shown here because you already completed your unfinished bloom.*
