Surprisingly, I have actually started. We'll still have to see whether or not I can finish an idea.
I got this, I got this, I don't need to go to the ol' rope + creaky stool store just yet!
My story is coming along well enough, but if I don't finish in time, I'd rather just be cast into the pit than release it in a garbage state. I've settled on (likely) cutting one major branch, but I'll take a few more days to write if that's what it calls for.
It's a strategy to convince them that it's okay, and as they all fail, I climb over their fallen corpses.
They better be the best 900 words I've ever read.
How do @ts work on this site? I never got a notification for this one. I just found it randomly.
Here is my entry: http://chooseyourstory.com/story/dreamtruder
I've always had a problem with word counts. The closest thing to a defense I have is when Mizal said something along the lines of the 40k maximum being for our own protection, but I completely understand if this entry is disqualified.
Well, I have no idea if I need to do this but Mythic Warrior did so I'll so it to be safe. I published something for the contest (https://chooseyourstory.com/story/aenigma-academy) so that exists
http://chooseyourstory.com/story/aenigma-academy is the actual link btw incase anyone is lurking here and can't be bothered to press their profile cause the bracket ended up in the hyperlink.
(PS: I likely won't get 9k words done by the time of the deadline - I'm at like 300 words right now)
I could realistically get to the 9k mark, but I'm out. I acidentally like the story that I'm writing and I would rather post a fully realized version in a week or two than a crappy rushed one tonight. Into the pit o' shame I go.
At least I'm not the only one :P

It's not my best work since I had to deal with an irl death of a friend and lost motivation for awhile. But finished it and that's what matters
There, it's done and over with. A bit more time would have helped a lot, but nonetheless, I'm proud of creating my first real writing project.

I try to never disappoint!
I mean sometimes I do, but I hope I didn't in this case!
Well, I missed it on the dot, due to last minute editing. Anyway, it's published.
