Will the prizes be pats on the back?
But at least it isn't a Pedo Mod Kiel contest where the prizes would be gropes in the dark.
I'm sure I can get a good story done before then. Will probably submit a sci-fi - those can really stand out when done right.
So I've never done this kind of thing before and i was wondering, how do you enter your story into this?
Refer to: "At any point before the end of November, you may nominate ONE story you've published between now and then as your entry."
To nominate, I imagine it is just you replying in this thread with a link to your storygame (I'd imagine you can type something like 'I nominate this story, Best of 2019, as my entry' just so that it is clear).
Mainly you want the judges to know that you have entered and what story you have entered with. Don't miss the deadline too.
If not, considering I only worked on one character's story, I could just do another character's story and publish all of them separately instead, choosing one to enter. Would either of these options be okay?
May enter a story if my writing this year goes even a little bit as I planned it to. Also am commenting to keep an eye on this thread, because just simply hitting the "watch thread" button is far too much work.
Hey, will this contest be an opportunity to get out of SHAME?
This will at least be in the back of my head the next time I decide to write something.
Will there be multiple placings, like first, second, or third?
Is there requirements or is it "anything goes?"
I wanted to make sure there was no changes.
Now Im kinda hoping she changes everything but only announces it hours before the deadline, causing thousands to fail.
Done. Jokes on you that was fun!
Actually when you think about it if your first you the last person to be last (think about it)
Does he look like a bitch?
I thought Bill's story was supposed to be promising. Everyone was going on about it.
I was hoping for at least one mind blowing epic from a regular site member.
Well you can see where this plan went wrong.
Well if you wanted that you should have went back to the era of warrior cats. There were soooo many quality stories back then. If only I had been there to see them in their prime.
"When a published author three times the age of most of the site regulars..."
[Awkward pause as he stops to do the math in his head.]
Can we agree instead to "slightly more than twice the age"? My frail ego, you know...
Under 50... for a few more years, anyway.
Yes, but you're the one who wrote that Mork & Mindy reference...
I might as well nominate this story, as I strongly doubt I'll be writing another 100k story between now and November.
We already know you're a great author. You don't need to go rubbing the fact that you don't procrastinate like the rest of us into our collective noses.
Procrastinate!?! You must write while you have the inspiration!
Actually, this wasn't written explicitly for a contest; it's just the story I wrote in 2019 (so far) that I want to enter. And if doing so convinces at least 1 person to read it...
"Winning" an uncompetitive contest just wouldn't be fulfilling...
I don't see myself having time to finish another story this year, so I'll throw in Edithe Zilonis:
Those are exactly what my arms look like, too.
Forgot I never posted in this thread lmao
I'll be nominating my fantasy story once I publish it. Probably won't win but at least there'll be more than 3 options to pick from (Bill's, MHD's, and Will's).
I will nominate a story here. I have already finished some as backups, but I want to finish my next story for this one!
After this month I will not have much time, so I will evaluate what my chances are of finishing and throw a story in before the deadline. I wish I could be out of the pit of shames, but I’ll worry about that later... unless someone decides to kick me off the site before then. Either way you all can submit more choices for the judges without fear: I am not a professional writer like all the other participants!
I'll throw my hat in the ring for this contest.
Private Game for Natalie
Still not sure if I am technically allowed to read this story or not... Either way it is very good!
P.S. Natalie if you are real, I am so sorry for prying into your relationship with Gower! Let me know if you really exist please!
But what about Kelly Unicorn Strider? O.O
I must admit I have not read the other story Gower wrote, I have a long list of "must reads." This list also includes both of Bill_Ingersoll's works. I have limited time. I will read about Kelly and let you know if I believe her to be real XD
Betting 90 points on Wildblue winning.
I do not think my epic will be done on time (given there are only 15 days left); therefore, I will just put this here:
The Chronomantic Adventures of Professor Gower: Office Hours
I have started today after 3 days of plot and planning to write something for this contest. It is just for fun and practice, What I will end up in fifteen days. My goal is 12,000 words I have 2,100 from today.. I will deliver something at the end even if I am happy there is no shame.
I would like to put forward this storygame, my humble first contribution to the site: http://chooseyourstory.com/story/a-pixie-danced
In the presence of this masterpiece, I am ashamed that I ever once thought as myself as a "writer." Time to go take up bonsai or some other hobby.
Landslide Here it goes. The best horror story I have ever made in 10 days. here
Next contest? Is one already planned? They already seem to be overlapping...
Bucky spams them occasionally.
I see... once I am out of the pit of shame I need to consider avoiding contests then.
