I wanted to say hello (for the third time now) to everybody here. I am so, so very excited to be joining this forum to write my first story that will be read by an audience.
This is kinda stressful, and it might be a lot of work that I don't know if I'm going to be able to put in, but I thought it would be worth the try to better my writing skills and meet some nice people.
There was an option, when writing, that let me make my story public on my profile. So if you wanna take a sneak peek, if you can, and tell me whether it's too cliché (it's gonna be very heavily inspired by things such as the Hunger Games (yes, I know)) or if it's just not worth continuing, in which case I'd rethink it or make something completely different.
Either way, that was kind of a long intro, just to say I'm happy to be here.
Thanks for the reply!
Thanks for the reply :)
I'll definitely read some of the site's most famous and newest stories.
Greetings and welcome to you! Be sure to take your time with your storygame. I took around 6 months to write mine-- although that had to do more with technological limitations than anything else. Anyway, there's nothing wrong with letting the story simmer in your brain and develop to something rich. Your storygame idea seems interesting. Are you going to explain the system (systems?) of magic the characters use? It's probably best to establish some hard and fast ground rules to how magic works in your world. You don't have to spell them out, but it they'll become apparent to the reader if you stay consistent. Also, try to put in a lot of details about how magic has changed society, but present them in the context of the story so you don't slow down narrative flow. Also be sure to show how the characters have been affected by this major change in the world. Unless you want your storygame to have all the whistles and bells of an old-school dungeon crawl where you can gain or lose items and hit points, you probably want to make it easy on yourself and use the Classic Editor Mode. Advanced Editor is a lot more complicated. Have fun and good luck to you!
I've definitely given a lot of thought into the particulars of the world's context, but you're very right in that there can never be too much preparing for a story. I'll give much consideration to your advice!
(By the way, thank you so much for the Editor Mode recommendation.)
You're welcome. Good luck!
That's interesting, Mizal; I always had trouble with the Advanced Editor. That's why I switched to the Classic Editor early on when I was writing my story. Otherwise, I don't think I would have been able to finish it.
Hey! We're happy to have you here ( I think) and don t stress over stuff you enjoy,you clearly don't mind writing long intros , so the beginnings must be even better!
