Hey, a newbie here, been playing storygames here for a while but I kinda decided maybe I'd try and write a storygame myself, just for fun. Was wondering about the community here and if there's any avenue for newbies to get advice from seasoned ppl abt how to write and publish storygames? Thanks!

We have a Help & Info section, which, while a bit out of date and in re-construction at the moment, should still give you all the help you need. For any questions about writing you have, there is the Writing workshop, for showing off your writing go to the Creative Corner.
And don't listen to End.

You will certainly gets lots of advice here. Good advice, bad advice, advice about sporks, and lots more. Your best bet is to, as mentioned, read the Help & Info section. Then take some time to read some of the forums. Feel free to ask questions and ask for reviews of your work. Read the stories here and see how they are rated -- that will give you an idea of what people like and do not like here.

Gavin, answering your PM now, but feel free to ignore the articles. They're being reorganized now and some are in the process of being axed or rewritten, but honestly except for the ones specifically on scripting they all cover extremely basic writing stuff, and it looks like you're already a better author that 90% of the community.

Haha uhh thanks for the compliment, although I'm curious how you know I'm a "better author" given that I've never published any stories before

You might want to turn sneak peek off if you don't want people snooping around in your story. :P

The fact that you've capitalised words, correctly used commas and seem to be literate puts you a great deal above the common site plebian.
