Toss around ideas and brainstorm your story.

Deadline

2 months ago

I have a storygame going, one that I'm actually excited about and one that I feel I can finish and post and not run out of ideas. I plan to have it finished in 2 weeks, so February 15. If you see this, continue to alert me to the fact that I have a storygame due February 15, everyday, every hour, or something like that.

DO IT

You go, buddy.

Don't forget the Feb 15. No, really don't. I find it helpful if you apply some sort of penalty if you don't finish something before that time, it serves as a wake up alarm of sorts, some sort of impending doom, a feeling of dread and apprehension. Nothing like those feelings to get you writing.

...did I mention Feb 15?

How many rosaries did the priest make you do for being gay enough to write Star Wars fanfic?

Have you considered becoming Protestant, I know some of the more progressive churches are pretty lenient about these things.

Are these not getting through to you?

Better test them to make sure.

Your profile indicates your may have given up, is this true? And there's no thread updates for all your fans?

I haven't given up yet, I'm still working on the story right now.

Pinging you just in case you forgot :D

Also the deadline is fast approaching and, depending on your timezone, it may be very soon (20 hours for me).

Deadline

Well it's like 3:00 now so you've only got a few hours left, also it's already the 15th for me

How fast do you type?

Deadline

Not fast enough to publish my game by the 15th (thought probs by the 16th) that's right, if the game doesn't release tomorrow, it releases Tuesday, cuz I don't want to get shot and deported to heaven

Can I get my points back if I publish the game by 6:00? I probs won't need until 6:00 but who knows.

I was going to give you till midnight. I'd just recommend not posting anywhere else till then, you might annoy someone dangerous.

HEY HEY HEY, the game is out. I just realized that it is probably bad but I pray to God that it isn't. So review it, there.

REEEEEE

That's not a Star Wars game.

Looks pretty okay though, congrats. Although my standards may have been lowered by the flood of <1000 word games from children recently.

Deadline

Never said it was, but that one I could release in the near future as well.

Deadline

Nice, you actually pressed on.

Also mizal can I please have my points back please?

I hear begging always works.

On another note, your story wasn't bad. :)

I was hoping that it was at least 4/8 material, so I can say my story is better than Fast And Furious: Crossroads.

Deadline

Still needs a bit more ratings until anything's official, it seems.

Why did the confrontation play out differently based on whether you took a taxi or not?

The writing is pretty solid and the story is interesting, I just have some questions about how some of the choices were handled. (And places where it seemed like choices should be.) Guess I'll leave that for a review however.

This could definitely use a run through for typos later though. It's almost like you rushed it or something.

Deadline

Because I rushed it.

BTW, I highly recomment Gower's article on dialogue punctuation, because that's something you've got tragically wrong ideas about. If you're intending to go back through and edit this at any point, let me know and I'll collect together some of the typos for you.
