It's Raining Again
A short story written and scripted in about four hours.

This isn't meant to be a masterpiece or an attempt at being deep. Hopefully it shows that a competent 20 page + story can be written in a weekend's time.

Contest entrants: there's no reason to garner SHAME when entering a contest on the site. Just sit down and write.

Five Endings.

The Cliche Adventures of a Generic Hero

Generic Warning - For immature  mature audiences only.

 

Author's Note

I fired the ridiculous cannon up for this one and took it up to eleven.

This project has lingered untouched in my trunk for nearly a year now. Originally intended to be a short work, it grew big and fat in my notes, and was then later locked away and ignored. Life happens. Anyway, I pulled it from the graveyard and decided to patchwork the dangling ends together. 

 

Play through the heroic or not so heroic adventures of a Cliché knight hero! There are a series of three endings for the knight that I considered canon when I first drafted the story. These unlock the first pages of what were intended to be the other hero paths of wizard, prince and spunky girl (along with some bonus troll material). If enough people enjoy the knight's story, I'd be open to reinvesting in the project and adding one or all of them on as an expansion. Each would play as its own separate story, so don't worry, there is a full and complete story in here.

 

The work, however, is raw - often intentionally so. And while the 'canon' endings unlock the bonus material, there really is no winning and losing. You just do better or worse.

 

That said, this is a fragment of the monster that lies in my notes, coming in at a little over 22k words. I feel comfortable saying there are a few chuckles in here, so I think if it brightens one person's day then it was worth publishing.

 

All comments, both mean and kind, are appreciated. Enjoy.


USA State Capitals - With Zombies!
WARNING: Contains Sexual References

A mildly disturbing result of my attempts to learn my way around the editor. I dabbled a bit in basic html as well. The game functions mostly as a USA State Capitals quiz with a simple combat element. I put in a bit of a backstory, surrounding the quiz, and something mildly disturbing may happen if you die...

While this has little literary merit; hopefully, you may learn something.


Wild Billy
Warning: Not suitable for children.



Written over the course of about three days prior to the extension, as a late decision to enter EndMaster's Depraved Love Contest. The extension was squandered trying to write something more serious, but that story deserves a more honorable effort than Billy.

Billy always had a wild side, even as a tyke.

Another story where you don't really win or lose. You just have a more or less pleasant existence.

Looks like you're going to have a busy August. Interestingly, I made the word count length the same as the nano goal. So if someone wanted to really plan out their story through June and July, then hammer it all out in August, they'd still have a good chunk of September to edit. But I don't think anyone did that.

Unless you're writing a story you don't particularly care about preserving, I strongly recommend doing all of your writing off site and backing up on a flash drive. @mizal rages about how people write directly into the editor.

How's the word count coming along?

Good to hear that the contest has helped you explore a different writing method.

I mean, look at what AMC is doing to Chris Hardwick based solely on a single baseless accusation. He even had other ex-girlfriends who told the the media he was a good guy and they thought it was a crock of shit smear campaign.

Also, you can never go wrong with the pursuit of princess bosom in Cliche Adventures.

Pugpup's ballad contest winner. Brad's ballad storygame. Ogre's frontier contest winner. Wibn's frontier contest winner. I liked your story, even if it was short, about the space hamsters that almost got eaten by a space bird in the opening scene.
