pod_aware opens tomorrow!

Are you all excited for the first day of [community profile] pod_aware tomorrow! Are you all scrambling at the last minute to get projects finished like I am?

So no one has to worry about time zones, I'm going to be posting the Day 1 post very shortly so that participants can start posting as soon as it hits midnight in their time zone.

How posting will work, is a mod post will go up with the little blurb about the theme of the day. Anyone posting something for that day will include that little blurb (in the creator notes, or somewhere else easily visible) wherever they post their work. I welcome participants to make a top level entry to the comm posting your work, but if you'd rather not, you can leave a comment with a link to your work, so we can add it to the masterlist for that day.

Also in that post will be a meta podcast related to that day's theme brought to you by a great team of podficcers/authors. Feel free to share your thoughts on the day's theme in the comment section to these daily posts!

ETA: Don't forget, even if you didn't sign up for [community profile] pod_aware you can still participate, all you need to do is dedicate a fanwork/post/something to [community profile] pod_aware and it's daily theme and link back to us!
