I'll go first to start things off.
I've got my foreward/author's note, prologue and chapter 1 completed. I have detailed notes for chapters 2 and 3 and brief notes for chapters 4 , 5 and epilogue. I also have a wip cover art I am still fiddling with.
We've reached the halfway point for November and Zandra and I are wondering how everyone is doing with their submissions.
If you want to let us know below how your work is going and possibly you're what you've achieved so far on your personal roadmap!
A previous years questions thread: Questions Thread - Light Novelber 2018 community - itch.io
You might find your question answered here, that said any answers to rules/submissions based questions from previous years are subject to change.
If you want to do more with your entry try the program caliber (epub manager), it can also be used to publish pdfs and epubs (works best if you import a word-doc/gdoc instead of a pdf. It can also beautify the upload as part of the conversion process and it makes adding cover art really easy.
The story should be roughly PG-13 .
"we were shooting for all ages/PG sort of thing for the anthology like can totally be mature, just no open lewdness or violence or swearing and such" - Zandra
We want both adults and teens to be able to enjoy these stories.
For the sake of a potential anthology we have (Zandra and co) decided that the world is basically our own e.g. humans, normal animals and our time period).
But there is room for exception to a degree, if folks wanna run with a wild idea, they should go for it (knowing that it's less likely to be considered for the collection), also with the added detail that stories can be set pretty much anywhere in time when an office building would make sense, like with the neat concept of a 50's take on it or in the future (within reason), that can easily fall into "Cali Co history" sort of thing.
if you can tie it back so it actually fits with the setting and could work as "one story in the same building everyone's writing about" then sure, the goal is a shared setting, so if you can make it work there, yes.
So you can also write about a company that is being contracted by Cali Co (helping with IT, manufacturing, cleaning or furnishing the office) or has leased out office space in Cali Co's main building or maybe a Company that is working together with Cali Co and you have been sent there as part of a Liaison team.
