Hello Everyone!


The name's Leora. I've been writing for several years, and it's become a great passion of mine. My other interests include video games, Dungeons and Dragons, and wasting time looking up cute animals on the internet. I'm 19 and currently working to put myself through college, so there may be times when I become relatively inactive. That being said, I do try my best to stay on top of things. If there's anything else you want to know about me, feel free to ask. I'm pretty much an open book ^_^

Killa's Spring Thing Contest! on 4/20/2018 12:21:19 PM
I started the day I entered. I've had a few hiccups along the way, but things are going pretty smoothly now ^_^ I'm glad to hear almost everyone is making progress.

He might be composing something brilliant offsite...

I wasn't trying to say that anything you said was over the top or even particularly mean. I just figured I should warn her about how this place works if she's going to be sensitive. It generally doesn't seem to end well for people like this.

It's probably best to just take the advice and move on. Everyone here is a rather harsh critic, and I doubt they're going to apologize for it. It may seem like people have bad attitudes, but this is a place to improve your writing, and that tends to happen though "trial by fire". If that isn't acceptable, this probably isn't the site for you. I do hope that you keep writing and produce something that we will enjoy reading :)

Click on "Add Link to New Page" at the bottom of the editor. When prompted, type one of the choices that you wish to give your reader. A new page will pop up where you should write what happens if you make that choice. Repeat for all choices. If you wish to connect a choice to a page you've already written, click on "Add Link" instead.

Alternate History CYOA on 4/11/2018 12:23:23 PM
An hour seems like a rather short amount of time for any site... Perhaps I'm thinking solely of roleplaying and writing forums, but an hour or two between posts shouldn't be unexpected, even on more "populous" forums. It may be different for other types of forum sites, but I find that websites that have near-instant replies tend to be full of spam anyway. You should definitely wait at least a few hours, and if the tread gets buried there's no harm in bumping it since it's a legitimate question ^_^ (But maybe try to bump it in a less... aggressive fashion?)

Question about dialogue preferences on 4/10/2018 6:27:50 PM
I prefer to offer specific dialogue options that sound in-character for the person you are playing as. This means the choices would be written as dialogue. That being said, it is unnecessary to do this every time your character opens his/her mouth, especially if they are having an extensive conversation with another person. There should occasionally be options to respond in ways that would shift the conversation, or answer direct questions, but otherwise I would recommend offering several things for the character to say that express different tones, and adjust the tone of the conversation according to the player's response.

So... editing is vital. Got it.

How many writing projects do you have? on 4/8/2018 6:37:28 AM
I have four. Two of my personal projects, a contest entry that I ended up scrapping as it became clear that it would take far too much time, and my current contest entry.
