Featured Story Bestist Frend Jane

Winner of the 2018 EPIC Contest!

Thanks to everyone for pushing me throughout the contest so I could actually finish something for a change—especially the other contestants who were both helpful and competitive. And thanks to BradinDvorak for help with CSS.

I'm not really sure about my first story, but I remember doing one in 3rd grade where we had to use as many words from a list for a Halloween story and I managed to use every single one.

Actually Useful Site Member Awards for 2018! on 12/30/2018 11:53:51 PM
Thanks for this! It still feels really amazing to have finally accomplished something, but I can't ride this wave forever...or can I? Nope. I need to focus on putting something else out as soon as I can to pay for my keep. I guess I should also congratulate everyone else on your list for their procrastination time well spent. So...congrats everyone!

Found a method to writing CYOA on 12/28/2018 2:03:31 PM
I haven't checked in quite a while since I don't need to update Scrivener for my use, but I assume the Linux version is still free.

If I hadn't used Scrivener, I'd probably still be beating my head against a wall trying to write something for the site that was spiralling out of control. It makes it much, much easier to keep track of everything and you can set it to display only the relevant pages in the path leading up to/working toward the part you're working on so it lessens the chance of plot holes, etc. It is great!

The first reports of the virus was less than two months ago. That’s when everyone started dying. I did things—unspeakable things—to get here where I’d be safe. Now, sitting alone here on this cliff, looking to the horizon with the waves crashing below. Was it really worth it?

Thanks. I'll play around with it and see what works best for me. Edit: The spoiler text doesn't seem to be working yet with the FFE on my end.

I just added CYSCE to Opera and it seems to work. The spoiler text thing, too. Posting is a little weird with a black screen and line numbers, though. Is that normal with the extension?

He'd create an army of super-mutants and genetically enhanced dwarfs.

I'm imagining a whole world based on the movie Twins. I think we'd all enjoy seeing that happen.

Hey everyone !!!! on 11/17/2018 2:52:03 PM
Just glancing at your first page without actually reading it, I can see quite a few punctuation and capitalization issues. And then there are things like i, u and ur which aren't words at all. It's I, you and your or you're. And I've never heard anyone in real life say "omg". Hope this helps. Oh! and welcome!
