Default The 14th Season

Hello all writers out there in QL Land.

Before anyone gets an idea about a long story arc twining through the season, I believe that there is a break needed from that. I understand that everyone is as an enormous amount of thought that goes into all of these wonderful stories, but I believe that this next year, stand alone stories or short story arc's (2 - 3 stories) is the way to go.

I'm not only thinking of the writers trying to keep up with one arc, but also the readers. Sometimes coming in during the middle of a season and starting up - it's frustrating.

Thanks for understanding!

MJ

Default Season 14 Submission Plan.

Hello all writers of QL!

Just wanted to let you know that I have a system up and in place now that will help me and you (in the long run) for next year. There are some stiplulations that will be put in place.

Most of the rules are up on the other page, but I'll post them here as well.

1) You must vy for a spot on the lineup by submitting a synopsis of the story to me. This must have the following information already for it:
* Title
* Date of Episode
* Where the story is to take place
* Current Date of PQL (according to suggestion made on the submission page)
* Summary of story - NOT the synopsis. This is what will go for for others to see to tempt them to read the story.

If two or more authors are vying for the same spot, I will either put their names into a hat or flip a coin to decide who will get that spot. It will be fair. I will not play favorites. I will then email all who are involved and let them know when their story will be aired.


2) Your story will be DUE no later than FOUR weeks prior to the story being aired. This date is in red on the submission page for the fourteenth season. If it is not in by that date, the story will either be moved to another slot in the season, or it will not be aired at all. If the season is full, your story will go into the next season. (This will have to stay this way. I need time to read, edit and prepare the site. I will no longer stay up until midnight during the week to get a story on the website when the other responsible party of said episode went lax.)

3) The story's TAGS, Cast Pictures (if you use them), and A to Z Listings are also required when the story is due.

If you'd like to see the page that I'm referring to it's on the site under the submissions link labeled: Season 14 Submissions. For a direct link, click here. This will bring up just the page where the information is.

To get to QL:TVS, you'd need to go here.

Thanks guys and gals for understanding and helping me out with this.

MJ

The next season, Season Fourteen, will be on the following dates listed below.

As of 01-28-07 the following episodes have already been taken. This has already been determined and the stories have already been pitched and approved by the director.

Once your story hits the 14th Season Lineup listed below, you will need to make sure that your story is turned in at least 4 weeks (or sooner) before your story will air. This will give enough time for your story to go through the grammatical and continuity readers and give the director enough time to read it and get the pages set in the website and ready for airing. The sooner it is sent in, the better.

The season is cut in half because of reasons that I'd like to keep to myself. Thanks.
