Endmaster's prompt contest writing thread. on 2/28/2024 11:25:10 AM
I gave what I said some thought and realized that I preemptively limited what kind of story I could tell for...reasons I might detail in another post if I feel like it... (mainly tonal fixation combined with the way I develop new ideas as I write) But besides that...what I said still holds some weight. Given that the prompt says "involving dinosaurs" and not "having dinosaurs". I mean sure...I could just put dinos in a random scene and never mention them again and call it a day. But not only is that not quite the same thing...it would kinda feel like cheating regardless... The short answer to "Who cares just put them in anyways" is that I wanted my story to be good...and that's where my hiccup began. Now I know better...but I suppose I should have made it more clear that it was more of a personal grievance rather than an objective limitation! lol :P

How many mental breakdowns do you need to have before your allowed to complain that writing your story is "hard"? I can only keep up this "haha lol ebic funni" persona for so long. This crap is hard! I only had one...so I suppose I should be surprised I got further than I thought I would... Though quite frankly. I haven't posted in here out of fear that it would make me come off as fishing for attention rather than someone who is willing to put in the work for their storygame. But I suppose I can give myself some self predictions while I'm here... I'm either going to succeed in writing the story I want and be satisfied in writing something masterful within the confines of my story's scope...or break down and not get something competent enough out...though given how many days we have left and my rate of writing being...fine...this whole time...I kinda doubt that will happen. I suppose its just because this is the longest I've dedicated myself to a writing project of this kind. Though really...I think my prompt is kinda limiting...I have some ideas for it but like...something about it just seems kinda flat. Unless I want to characterize the dinosaurs as actual people or make them all parts of different tribes or something...I'm stuck with all these "animals" that need to be in an interesting story (No I'm not turning the dinosaurs into mechas...that's stupid even by my standards!) (If for some reason anyone feels ballsy enough to suggest to me a premise...then by all means please do so! Worst case scenario is it'll give me something to think about.) Another possibility is the core of my story changes drastically as I write. I'm a natural discovery writer...but its admittedly harder to write that way when you have a deadline and multiple paths to consider! So I'm trying to convince myself to just "write whatever" and let future me edit it into something cohesive...but that's easier said than done.

All these penguins and I don't see a single Pingu in sight! :O Noot Noot appreciated... :( (will add accompanying picture later if I feel like it...)

It's definitively this one! I can't imagine why anyone would come to this site unless they were looking for a reason to be Gayer and DepressedER! Every CYStian realized this was their life calling quite a long time ago now...

I get this is joke, but part of me wonders how well people here would take having to do something irl (or online) in order to progress a storygame... (Music links withstanding...though I kinda wonder that too...)

I guess it depends if you want your stories to be noob friendly or not (not like I'm one to talk but...you know...) When I first first came here I'd get turned off if the story had wall of text after wall of text...as it seemed to clash with the "choice" aspect of story games. (ie...the choices get in the way of the story and the story gets in the way of the choices) Now I don't really mind very much as long as its not written like garbage (and if I can tolerate the prose...though I'm sure that will get easier with time! haha!) Though to be fair I say that last part cause I was recently reading one of Mystic's stories and she seemed to find a way to make the text smaller (idk if that's a setting or if it just gets smaller if you put too many words...either way it made it way more tolerable for some reason...)

Unbeknownst to John, he had met the government agent before despite not knowing the truth of Eos's whereabouts.

Doesn't surprise me too much that 49 is probably going to be picked last simply cause its both very specific and complex. I considered it myself, but a war story is complex enough as it is...a war story where a third party is stuck in the middle though? Much more work and nuance I feel is required to pull that off in a satisfactory manner!

-Ur Mom- (I don't know how to cross out comments here...) I have a handful of "big goals" but I'm indecisive when it comes to important stuff so...yeah. It is mainly the general irl and creative stuff tho (get married, make a film, have a good yt channel ect.). Kinda sucks that this thread didn't take off though...I really liked reading your posts on the previous thread. (Friday Night Questionnaire 3)
