Writing Prompts: Week #5 on 1/30/2017 9:27:25 PM

I'm satisfied I guess because it's one of my first literary pieces, regardless what can I improve upon?

Forgot to say, congrats to the winners

So, on the January Frontier Contest thread, there was a lot of talk about negative points and going into service and cheating...

Can someone better explain?

Number 2

"This door won't budge will it," Stan asked.

"Guess not," I replied.  "Maybe this will help." I stated, just before kicking down the door.

The door flew down.

"Seems like it will," Stan chuckled.

This house had been on the market for the past 10 years, and was being held by the city bank. It's age on the market was probably because of the fact the house hadn't been cleaned by the owners since they bought it. A terrible waste of money. In that time the house had become overrun with foliage and little critters. Still, we saw the potential in the place and we bought it for cheap. 

When we first entered, it didn't seem to bad. Most of the original framework and furniture was still present and intact. A few fancy paintings and mounted heads lined the walls as well. Making our way through the house we began to see problems. Small cracks littered the floor, and there was a massive water stain in the living room. Then again, there was a fully functional television in the den, and amazingly enough running water. 

"Looks like someone's been living here." Stan said, pointing at the fridge. I turned over to see a fully stocked fridge, decked out with beers, some Chinese takeout boxes, and some microwave pizzas. 

It took a bit of time for the panic set in. Stan and I began running up the house, checking the entire top floor as well as the ground floor, from the sofa to the yellowed mattress in the office. 

"Damn," I said "Maybe we were wrong about this guy."

The wind whistled through the house, sending a slight chill down a spine. 

"On the listing, didn't it mention a basement?" Stan asked.

"Yeah..." 

We split off and began looking for doors or entrances to the basement. Finally, one door showed us the way. 

"Over here!" I called.

Stan ran over and we cautiously entered the basement. 

"Maybe it was a little...foolish of us to forget the basement."

"Hey, that's on you Harry."

I squinted past the stares into a field of boxes. The basement was lit with Christmas lights. The wallpaper was peeling off the walls, revealing a wooden log textile. We began to explore further, and we found a rug, television and gaming console, and a couch set up in the middle of all the boxes. Slowly we inched towards the makeshift living space. As we got closer, we discovered a stack of microwave pizza boxes stacked next to the sofa. A cracked beer bottle leaned against the sofa as well. 

"Seems like we found our guy." Stan whispered. 

There he lay. On the couch, arms and legs splayed all over. His mouth gaped open, revealing yellowed teeth and even a gold one. The man seemed as if he hadn't shaved in a while, his beard was gray and ran all the way down and past his chin. Just as I was about to wake him, he suddenly (but slowly) rolled up out of the couch and rubbed his eyes.

Stan and I stared at him with empty eyes, and jaws open.

The man squinted into our eyes and opened his mouth,

"Mama?"


How to organize a story line on 1/7/2017 4:51:29 PM

I think writing is easier, seeing how I am not going to go out and buy a big board or something.


How to organize a story line on 1/7/2017 1:01:44 PM

I was having trouble explaining the question, but I was just asking what program or thing should I use to help organize my storygame?


How to organize a story line on 1/7/2017 9:50:04 AM

I read an article from the Help and Info section about how to go about writing stories. I don't know the specific article, so it would be nice if you could link it below (I'm lazy). My question is, how do you go about writing a structured story line. I know what you have to do but, what are some suggestions as to good places to write the storyline in (paper, microsoft word).
