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 ^_^

I Can Hear You
You've never led the most pleasant of lives, but this certainly takes first place on the list of crappy life experiences. After a horrible accident that was in no way your fault, you find yourself passed out in a hospital bed. You cannot see or feel anything. In fact, you cannot move at all. The doctors are convinced that you're not long for this world, and the nurses don't seem to mind talking about it since their comatose patient obviously cannot hear them. Except that isn't true. You can hear everything.

This is an entry for Killa's Spring Thing Contest. Had some publishing issues, but I got it up the second I could. As much as I wanted to publish my original entry, I couldn't be happy with myself if I put out a half-finished product. (It should be coming out within the next month or so if anyone actually cares.) Thanks you so much to Steve for all of his support and various death threats, and to Mayana for her encouragement during this competition.

Note: This is my first published storygame, so any feedback and criticism would be very much appreciated.

Oh I've read the thread... I'm a bit of a lurker around here. I do have a major project I've been working on but progress has been slow from work/school/head injury. I do hope to at least get the character creator done soon though.

I suppose there's no harm in trying (so long as you have thick enough skin to take the site's reactions). Nice to meet you, Dom :)

Ah, I see. Fair warning there are quite a few people on the site already who are excellent proofreaders and don't charge for it, so I'm not sure how successful such a venture will be.

Yes. You have to go through an admin, but there's a way to do it.

Welcome to the site ^_^

Dammit I thought I caught all of those. I'll have to check.

True, a 6 is a very good rating. You're a competent writer and you've got nothing to worry about.

My OCD and Ratings on 9/19/2018 5:12:23 PM
I don't put much stock in ratings to be honest. On mine most of them are 8s, but two 3s from people with higher power around here brings it WAY down. (Mine's not that great and I wrote it in 22 hours though, so I don't really mind.) But one person's opinion can carry a ton of weight in the rating system. That's why I think comments are a lot more beneficial than keeping an eye on ratings. Not only do they tell you what you can improve on, but they give a more accurate sense of the general opinion than ratings do. Storygames only get pulled if they're below a 3, so you should be fine on that front.

Valid reasoning. I recycle old roleplaying names constantly.

I used to be a lot worse than I am now, but I've always been terrified of letting people down. I'd do pretty much anthing someone asked so long as it didn't go completely against my sense of morality. I had "friends" who would consistently ask me to buy them things or to give them money. Even when nobody asked, I'd still go out of my way to buy or make things for people so often that they came to expect it. There were a few who took advantage of this- one kid even asked me for money for lunch every day because he knew I couldn't say no. I hated the feeling it gave me to deny someone so much that I'd give it to him even though I was fully aware that he was manipulating me. I still hate saying no to people, but at least I'm somewhat capable of it now.
