Sorry, was busy the past couple of days! I won't miss another week, I promise!

Anyways, I would like to nominate Crescentstar's Three Hundred Thousand Tears ! I really enjoyed it, and I'm sure it would make for an interesting storygame to discuss.

I have been meaning to write a detailed "formal" review on it at some point, but once you've guys had your say, I might as well go over the pathos of my opinion on the story.

Poetry prompt week 18: Drinking poems on 8/17/2019 7:17:50 PM

Freeform? Quite a nightmare. I'll leave the tune, tempo, and such to the reader's imagination - just imagine a chorus of drunken men singing this.

Pour us a drink,
O' barkeep, keep pouring.
Pour us a drink,
'till we can't drink no more.

Pour us a drink 'till our wounds are forgotten,
Pour us a drink 'till we can't see no more.

The battle continues,
And us men, we march,
And the hardship continues,
With only one resolve:

Men raise your cups,
As the drinks are a'pouring!

Men raise your cups,
And all woes will begone!

So Pour us a drink,
O' barkeep, keep pouring!
Pour us a drink,
And tonight shall last!

Hardship surrounds us,
But ye shouldn't fear,
For nothing is finer,
Than a cool mug of beer.

So pour us a drink,
O' barkeep, keep pouring,
Pour us a drink,
'till we can't drink no more.

Looks like I have once again proven myself to be an incompetent shitbag.

Instead of rushing out several thousand words of incoherent nonsense, I will call it a loss and take my time to create a story actually worthy of being published.

I recommend the following authors:
> EndMaster
> Crescentstar
> Bill_Ingersoll
Among others. History nerds are quite respected around here, so you shouldn't find any issues fitting in around here.

So yeah, welcome to the site!

I'm still surprised that even with multiple authors, the stories were still substandard.

Also, points 1 and 8 contradict themselves.

Nothing a swatter can't fix.

Welcome to CYS!

Almost everybody has a list of good storygames here if you want any recommendations, but personally, I always suggest reading, rating, and reviewing the newer games. You'd make Mistress M happy, to say the least.

A great way to practice your writing is to write linear short stories on Creative Corner. In fact, anywhere you can read and write is a good place to refine your abilities.

Of course, as a lurker, you most likely know most of this. Anyways, it is nice to see you as an actual account!
