Welcome to the revived PROLIFIC FAN FICTION WRITERS’ INDEX! The purpose of this thread is to enable SW fan fiction writers to keep all of their stories listed in a single place and to promote them to readers. There are specific rules for indexing and promotion, please read them carefully before you start posting in this thread. If in doubt about any of these rules, please PM the sock. The PWI is exclusively an index, not a place for discussion. To discuss specific stories, go to the story thread. If you're looking for a story and can't find it here, go to the Recommendations thread or the Looking for fics thread. Only index posts are authorised in this thread. Despite the word "prolific" in the thread title, you're welcome to list your stories here even if you only wrote one. ----------------------------------------------------------- INDEXING RULES 1. One post per user. If you have a collaborative work, only use your real username (not a collaborative sock) to post your work. Your one post can be edited to include new stories. Any other erroneous posts will be pointed out to our friendly neighbourhood moderators. 2. Only SW fics posted on the JCF are eligible for this thread. Stories posted on other websites will be deleted. For NSWFF, please contact the NSWFF mods. 3. You may not use this thread to solicit new readers. To promote your fics, check out the promotion rules below. 4. Your stories MUST be listed by era. So you'd have your Before stories listed, then Saga, then Beyond. 5. No colors or cover art. Let this just be an index. The exception is that you can color Before, Saga, and Beyond 6. Each story entry MUST follow this template. If an item is not applicable, enter N/A instead of deleting it (or TBD if you haven't made up your mind about it yet) Title: (insert link) Co-Authors: (list co-authors and/or specify if round robin) Timeframe: (from date/event to date/event) Genre: (adventure/romance/drama, etc) Canonicity: (canon/Legends/AU) Type: (epic/short/series) * Characters: (list main canon characters and/or OCs) Summary: (absolute maximum 100 words) Last updated: (year of last update) Status: (Complete/ WIP/ any sequels) Other relevant information: (whatever isn't covered above, e.g. if the story was written for a challenge, but don't use this to pimp your fic!) Download links: (specify format) * Epic = 30,000+ words / Short = less than 30,000 words / Series = connected one-shots or connected multi-chapter stories (e.g. a trilogy). A single story can be signalled as matching two of these categories (e.g. Fancy title: short, part of the Awesome Series) About download links for your fic A downloadable version of your fic can be useful for readers, especially if your fic is looooong and completed. If you choose to create a pdf/ebook of your fic and link to it here, please bear in mind the following: For writers: Only fics that were posted on the JCF are eligible for this thread. Links to fics posted on other sites will be removed. You commit to post a download link to a TOS-compliant version of your fic, i.e. a version identical to the version you posted on the boards (minor edits for typos etc are acceptable.) Breaches of the TOS will be handled by the mods as per the board rules. You are responsible for creating the downloadable format(s) of your fic (pdf, epub, mobi, etc) and uploading it wherever you deem appropriate (dropbox, Google Drive, personal server, etc). For readers: You commit not to transfer the downloadable document to another online storage service -- this is a "download and read for your personal enjoyment" thing, not a dissemination thing. You download files at you own risk (for viruses etc.) -- the mods or the JCF as a whole are not responsible for any problems you may face. ----------------------------------------- PROMOTION RULES Authors who have an entry in this index may promote their fics only via the sock on a monthly basis. Authors are not allowed to post anything but their one-post list of fics in this thread. Any variation of "read my fic" will be deleted by the mods. To promote your fics, please do the following: 1. Open a PM convo with the sock and specify clearly in the title "fic promotion for User in [month/year]". Please keep all your promotion PMs to this convo month after month. You can update the convo title every time you send a new PM using the "edit conversation" button at the top of the page. 2. The sock will accept PMs for promoted fics from the 15th to the 30th of each month, and will publish the list of promoted fics on the 1st of the following month. Check out this thread's title bar to see if it's time to send in your fics. 3. You may promote only ONE fic per month. This can be a fic that was started/updated/completed in the past month or an old fic that you want to bring back from the dead. 4. You cannot promote the same fic two months in a row. This is just to avoid the promotion posts becoming awfully repetitive. 5. You can only promote fics that you authored/co-authored, not other people's fics. 6. When PM-ing your promoted fic to the sock, you MUST follow this template: Title: (no fancy formatting please) Co-author(s): (N/A if not applicable) Era: Before/Saga/Beyond Link: (no embedded links please) Why I'm promoting this fic (absolute maximum 100 words): e.g. "I started a new story about..." or "my epic such and such is reaching a crucial point" or "I added a download link for my completed story" etc. This can include basic info of plot, characters and themes. --------------------------------------- Notes: The old PWI thread can be found here (backup on the Wayback Machine here) and their common ancestor The Complete Collection Databank here. The sock will maintain an index of writers in alphabetical order. The index will be updated at least once a month, so don't panic if you don't see your name in the index yet. As of 03 February 2015, the sock is managed by Chyntuck.
