Image is Everything
unpublished

You are the younger twin from a family born of high status. Your elder sister had the brains, while you held the brawn. Or that's how the image goes, at least. You believe you have a fair head on your shoulders, but you know better than to be telling people that. It goes against your family’s image. 

Now, she is soon to be reelected as the Ruler of the kingdom, and you’ve gotten yourself a comfortable position as her bodyguard. She has been kidnaped by the Grox King. Again. And it’s up to you to take off once more to lead the rescue party. This time, after the stunt is pulled, she will call the army to get rid of the Grox menace for good. Your image as a hero and her image as a capable leader will be cemented into realty. That was the plan, at least.

You and your sister have invented a little secret language. It was just for fun while you were younger, but it has proven quite useful in your young adulthood. It came very useful now. You've just learned that this wasn’t a part of the image. Her life may be in real danger.

Reading about stuff like this gave me the idea in the first place. It would be amazing if we found life on other planets.


Brainstorming a secret organization's name on 7/29/2020 4:45:37 PM

What would you name a secret international orginization that deals with aliens? The story is set in modern times, and it's going to have a humourous tone for the most part. They haven't found an alien before, so they aren't that well respected. Maybe it has a silly abreviation or something? I just can't think of anything clever.

One of the worlds that i'm building is a moon thats tidaly locked to a gas giant. It still has day and night, though they are quite long, but every day the planet fully eclipses the sun. During the night, the gas gaint would be far brighter than our moon, so the sky wouldn't be that dark. The eclipse would be the darkest time of the day.


Start with the protagonist on 7/29/2020 4:14:24 PM

Yeah, I always find myself trying to make the POV character relatable, but that only makes the bland. That's one of the reasons I didn't specify the gender of the protagonist in the idea. 


Is this worth writing? on 7/25/2020 4:09:37 PM

Thanks for being honest.  Do you have any tips on creating a simple story? Even when I'm trying to be simple I manage to go overboard.

Thank you for showing me the Tiny 'topias thing. I may actually be able to do that one simply. 

And oh no. "Potential" is what makes me never finish anything. If I aimed for 20K it would turn into a mess.


Is this worth writing? on 7/24/2020 7:47:15 PM

I've been unable to complete anything, and it's really starting to bum me out. I keep getting too ambitious and it all falls apart because of my lack of skill. I need to post my first real story on this website or I will never get anything done. I had an idea for a relatively short storygame for me to get out there so it can exist and be criticized and I can improve and make something I actually want to write. It seems simple enough, but I don't want it to become something I overcomplicate and expand until it falls apart. Do you think this is basic enough for someone who overcomplicates things to actually complete in a week or two?

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.

How do @ts work on this site? I never got a notification for this one. I just found it randomly.

How do you check word count on a story?
