It is the year of 2376.

The population of Earth has decreased tremendously over the last few hundred years. Constant wars and genocides have led to a world that seems to no longer function. However, it seems that in North America, there is one civilization that continues to exist and is one of the last livable cities on the planet.

In that city lives one person who has the chance to change the entire course of history from now on and if humanity wants to continue to exist then this person better realize their destiny before it is too late...

There will be a few points in the story that will provide extra information that is completely optional. After reading the page, it will have a link bringing you back to the original page so that you may continue the narrative.

Congrats everyone! Especially to those who won so now there may be more quality stories on the site other than mine which I am taking down immediately.

Also the vast difference between the genres and stories allows for even more enjoyment from readers and that's excellent for this site which might have been lacking in certain topics. I'm glad that this contest turned out mostly great entries and good luck to those who to score high with the judges.

Oh dang it, I forgot that someone else was writing a ballad. The worst part is that Romulus actually has an understanding of poetry so now I feel ashamed of my own writing but that's what happens when I don't know how to write poetry. However good luck to you and your ballad.

Thank you and good luck, I hope that you are doing excellent in your entry and that you fare well with your writing.


December Contest: A Horror Ballad on 1/5/2018 9:58:59 PM

As of current, I will be using most if not all of my weekend time to finish up the ballad. So far, I have realized that the ballad will be short but nothing can be done about that because of the structure. Working with a genre I have never thought of writing for and writing in a format unfamiliar to me has been an interesting ride. The biggest regret I have is procrastinating over the days I had free time to do this only because I just hit a wall in the creative process while writing the ballad.

Horror is not a genre I would have ever dreamed of writing for because I usually avoid anything on the horror side. However, what I do enjoy is the psychological aspect behind what makes horror so terrific to see and read. By writing this, I am hoping that the ideas I included are able to instill a sense of horror into those who decide to read the ballad. (Especially since writing the ballad means I have to use more specific words and smaller phrases.)

Overall, I believe the ballad is doing decent and I aim to finish on Sunday but this time, not a couple seconds before the deadline (hopefully).


December Contest: A Horror Ballad on 1/1/2018 9:44:40 PM

Oh boy, final week to do this! So basically I did squat over new year celebrations so now I have to pump out tons of words and tons of rhythmic stanzas. I will be lucky to finish in time.


December Contest: A Horror Ballad on 12/27/2017 1:59:51 PM

Tackling the story by including the unknown And by doing so, I have to get creative. The main outline is done on a seperate document and trying to transfer ideas into a comprehensible story. Continuing to increase rate of writing when I have down time.


Merry Christmas Everyone! on 12/25/2017 12:13:05 PM

Merrrry Christmas!!! And happy holidays to everyone else and may everyone have a magnificent day or yesterday if it was yesterday for you.


December Contest: A Horror Ballad on 12/24/2017 8:00:16 AM

Christmas is approaching!

A perfect time to churn out a lot of words and pages so that I may finish this story in time!

Also my word count is insanely low because of the way I formatted the story. Since I am actually writing the story in a ballad, the word count is a measly 926 as of current. But hopefully in due time, the word count will be at least 3,000 to 5,000 in total which is terribly short for a CYOA but for a long ballad, I assume that it will be just enough.

Also as a note: I did not notice that I had to update twice a week and thought it said "Every two weeks". (I think I need my eyes checked.) Which is why that the first two posts are so far apart from each other. Oops. Well now I know.
