Hey Everyone!

Podfic Big Bang GSD week is here! For those who haven't heard the term GSD stands for "Get Stuff (Sh*t) Done".  This week is a week to work work hard on your project and get lots of encouraging feedback!  To that end I have devised several activities that will hopefully help motivate everyone.

1) Bingo Cards! I have made Podfic Big Bang GSD Bingo cards.  If you want one let me know in a comment, DM, or tweet and I'll set you up.  There is no prize other than a feeling of great satisfaction but that feeling is indeed great!

2) Sprints! For those who haven't heard the term, Sprinting is where several people with stuff to get done set a start time and end time (like from the :00 to :20) and then check in after the time is up.  It is great at helping focus or motivate you when focus or motivation just aren't coming.  I will be hosting sprints most mornings (schedule below).

3) Daily Challenges! I've set a challenge for each day! Once again there is no prize save for the satisfaction that you have gotten the achievement and Done The Thing.

4) Daily accountability check in posts! These are totally optional.  I'll post the challenge every day and on that post you can post things like "I want to record 3 chapters today" or "I plan to edit 30 min during my lunch break" and also report on how well you met the previous day's goals.

**Sprint Schedule**
Monday-Thursday: Morning Sprints with Opalsong 9am-12 noon
Friday: Sprints with EosRose (6pm until at least 8pm)
Saturday: Mid-Day Sprints with Opalsong (11am-2pm)
Sunday: Evening Sprints with Opalsong (6pm-9pm)
I'll host all sprints on Twitter.  I'll tweet when we're starting and you can reply if
you want in.

On top of all this if anyone wants to organize things of their own for specific days let me know and I'll include it in the daily post.

Hope everyone has fun and gets stuff done!

EDIT: All times are CST (sorry I forgot to put this in earlier)
EDIT 2: I've added a Friday Sprint with EosRose (or the podfic big bang twitter account) on Friday evening for those so inclined,

My utter an complete apologies for not getting this up on Saturday!!  My only defense is that I was attending a con.  But it's here now!! Check in number 3!  How are you doing?  What has been difficult? What has been easier than expected? Are you where you want to be in the process?

Reminder that we're having a GSD boot camp week from the 10th-16th so if you're not quite where you want to be, that is OK.

We're at the halfway point for the Podfic Big Bang and are now accepting art requests from those of you who intend to post in August. The art request post for the Epic Podfic Big Bang will go up after posting for Podfic Big Bang ends in August, so hang tight!

How much have you recorded? Edited?
How do you feel about your current progress?
Are you looking for a cheerleader or beta?
Do you need any kind of extra motivation from your mods?

If you need help with anything at all, please let us know!

Hello all you glorious podficcers! This is the first check in for Podfic Big Bang and Epic Podfic Big Bang.

How is everyone doing? Have you found a title (or titles) that you wish to record? If not, do you want help finding something? If you do, what is it? (or is it a surprise???)

Have you started recording and editing yet? How are you finding it? What do you think will be the biggest challenge with the project you've picked?

For help with those difficult times we have some people who have volunteered to be cheerleaders *\o/*
