Welcome to the Young'Uns Project where a group of us will attempt to broaden the amount and range of young!Sherlock fanfiction out there. We're trying to have fun, improve our writing skills and create some good, prompt-inspiring fiction.
This livejournal is for members to upload their completed chapters, swap pieces of text with their alpha/beta readers and to log their progress (and then completion).
If the members didn't already know the rules, then here they are again to remind them:
* You MAY NOT write ANY fics in collaboration with another author (if two of you have an idea, and it would be a fic longer than 25,000 words, ask us first, and we’ll talk it over.) * EVERYONE is assigned an Alpha (who will edit continuity, character, etc) and a Beta (who will edit spelling, grammar, etc). We’d strongly recommend you make use of them, but it’s not mandatory that you do. * You MUST stay within the age ranges (9-15 for Sherlock, 10-16 for Jim, 13-19 for John, 16-21 for Mycroft). * You MAY ask others, outside the challenge, for writing and editing help, if you’d like. Run it past us first. * You MAY ask us questions. * You MAY pester us as much as you like. * If you’d like to make GRAPHICS/ICONS/PLAYLISTS, you may ABSOLUTELY DO SO. * We are tentatively accepting fics in languages other than English. We would prefer to be able to understand them, so if you’re thinking of writing one, let us know. * IF ENGLISH IS YOUR SECOND LANGUAGE AND YOU STILL WANT TO WRITE A FIC IN ENGLISH, FEEL FREE.
All those participating in NaNoWriMo as well need to talk to us and they will get an extra month, all those from livejournal interested need to contact us either via livejournal or through tumblr within the next week or else they will not be able to. If anyone from lj would be interested in suggesting some PROMPTS then of course they will be accepted gratefully, so please let us know if there's anything you would like to see in a fic, or any words/phrases you would like us to include or write about.
I fear that's about all for now, so from Natalie and myself (Grace) I hope we have a lot of fun with this and get young Sherlock out there and show 'im off.
