Holy crap, I live!

Posted: September 29, 2013 by Kella in Chaos #1 Planning, FYI (Oi! Pay attention!)

So… yeah. Sorry for the dearth of communication around here lately. Aaron pointed out to me how not communicative I’ve been on the site, and I realized that work and school and novel-in-progress have swallowed my life. Whoops.

Couple o’ things: Christina had to pull from the Chaos due to real life shenanigans. Ordinarily, shenanigans would just be annoying, but these are extra-special shenanigans with a side order of whisky, tango, and fuck. (Probably less fuck than might actually be enjoyable, but whatever.) And so we’ll miss Christina from this one! Hopefully she’ll be able to come back for a future story.

Sarah, too, had RL shenanigans, but they were more benign and only resulted in her chapter being delayed a week. I have received assurances of its presence today. (I can’t really be a whip-cracker on this one… you see how long it took me to pull my head out of my ass to make an announcement, yeah?)

I’ll edit the schedule on the front page so that we can try to keep track of who’s next. If you have questions, poke me. I’ll try to respond faster in future. I may or may not respond well to coffee/chocolate/personal assistant bribes… it remains untested.

To try to smooth out some of the bumps in the road, I’m going to be creating a little schedule box for the main page, so authors can look ahead to see when they’re next supposed to be writing and make advance arrangements if need be.

It’ll still be pretty chaotic though. Guaran-damned-teed.

If you’re an author and you know you’ve got schedule restrictions at any point in the next few weeks, please email me.

Author Reference File

Posted: July 26, 2013 by Aaron Matthew Kaiser in Chaos #1 Planning, FYI (Oi! Pay attention!), Resources & Cool Stuff

Hello, fellow Chaosticians! (That’s your new official name. Learn to like it, or else. Ha!)

My name is Aaron and I am a new author for Chaos #1. You’ll be reading my work this Sunday with chapter 4. I’m looking forward to sharing it with everyone and getting your feedback.

I digress. The reason for this post is to let everyone know about the author reference file that Kella and I have created. Right now, it is a basic list of terms/names with short descriptions. The goal is for this to become a quick reference guide so we all stay consistent with names and details without having to go back and re-read sections of previously written material.

You can find this file in the Google Drive folder. If you do not have access to it, please contact Kella. Please make part of your author habits to visit this file after your chapter has published and enter new information that you have established. If we meet a character in chapter 2 and find out they have two belly buttons in chapter 6, let us know so that someone writing chapter 10 doesn’t miss that detail and give them three.

I hope this helps everyone as I know it will help me greatly. Obviously, don’t write anything in the file that has yet to be established, unless you are explaining in greater detail about something. The entry for the Cyrex 3000 is a good example of this.

If you have any additional questions, please let me or Kella know.
