Hello, contributors!

The time has come to sign up for time slots! If you have signed up to be a contributor, you will need to sign up for a 15-minute time slot for each day of the project. You may sign up for a maximum of THREE time slots per writing day.

The project doesn’t end until May 3, but right now we’re letting people sign up through April 26. You obviously don’t have to pick time slots for every day right away, but the sooner you choose, the more likely you are to have a time that suits you. However, please don’t commit to a particular time if you’re not 100% certain that you’ll be able to tweet then.

So, how do you sign up? We’ve created a public spreadsheet on Google Docs that you can fill out yourselves. Here’s the link to the spreadsheet:

Austen Project Weekly Schedule

As you’ll see, the times are in 15-minute increments. So, if you sign up for 4:00, you’ll have from 4:00 to 4:15 to write. Please sign up with your Twitter username. We’ve included a few examples on the spreadsheet to help you get started (you’re welcome to delete those examples if you want the time slots they’re occupying).

If you have any difficulties in signing up, please contact us at or send @Austen_Project a direct message on Twitter. We’ll try to help you out as soon as we can!

One last important detail:

Don’t forget, since @fangsupnicolee won the story contest with A Ball at Pemberley, she has the honor of kicking off the project. We will get her submission well in advance of our official start time so that early contributors will know what they’re working with.
