Unfortunately I won't be able to enter into the contest this time around. I've been having to deal with some real life problems/issues, and I would feel guilty with making a promise to have a finished story by the deadline, when there's a big possibility that I won't have anything finished by the end of October. Hopefully this doesn't cause me to enter the Shame ranks haha, but I understand if that's what happens to me. I hope everyone else has great fortune while writing their own stories, and I'm looking forward to reading them.

The teachers I had just crammed formulas into my head, in the hope that I would somehow learn how to be a proficient writer. All it accomplished is me feeling like the village idiot whenever I have to write anything, including this reply.

Start on whichever path you want to, if I have enough time I'll read either one.

You'll be my savior once that article is posted. I have many of the same issues you corrected in this thread, which helped me out quite a bit even though you weren't fixing my writing.

Thank you so much for the links! I really appreciate the help that everyone's been giving me about writing, without it I'd be stumbling around in the dark wondering what I'm doing wrong. Because at the end of the day I'm doing all of this because it's something I enjoy doing, and I'd hate to ever see writing as a chore.

I ended up deciding to do this because the original starting point didn't allow me to write about the setting of the story in a way I was comfortable with. Maybe once I've written more stories and acquire more experience I'll be more comfortable with what I write. But as of right now I felt that the new start gives me more freedom to develop the story, so it won't end up feeling lifeless and bland. And the different versions of the characters represent the morality choices you can choose, they're not completely different paths that tell entirely different stories, just different approaches to the story's main conflict.

I've decided to backtrack a little on the beginning of the story. Now the story begins with Alex's early life in the city he lives in. My original starting point didn't have enough background info to properly build the world of the story and didn't allow the reader to mold Alex's character/morality.

The letter described how the Ancient Ones built these training areas in the hopes of creating a generation of "super soldiers", unfortunately their civilization was destroyed before any soldiers could be trained. I'd also like to say that all of this is a very rough idea for the story and I may end up altering some parts of the plot.

The trials would mostly be testing the will/character of Alex, to determine whether he's worthy of the power he'll be given. I plan on having the final trial be a battle between Alex and a construct the Ancient Ones left behind.

"The story begins with the reader's character (Alex) preparing to fight against an ancient warrior, constructed out of metal plating and metallic coils, that is defending the ruins of the ancient civilization. Due to the lack of unharmed historical relics the current society have dubbed the ancient civilization as the Ancient Ones. Fifty years ago, a team of explorers unearthed a letter that changed your life. Penned before the collapse of the civilization of the Ancient Ones, it had been preserved in nearly as pristine condition as the day it was written. The letter explains how they were facing an insurmountable adversary, knowing that their extermination was unavoidable, plans were put into action to create an isolated region with the hope of training a warrior powerful enough to defeat their adversary before all known creation is destroyed." This is some of my thoughts I was able to write down today, which ended up sounding like a blurb, sorry if it's all over the place. Basically my story would be about this ancient civilization that was destroyed by a mysterious enemy that possessed unimaginable power. The events that take place during the story are of the main character stumbling across some ruins while on an expedition. The ruins contain training grounds originally intended for a last ditch effort to save the Ancient Ones from being exterminated. I planned for the story to be about Alex trying to survive and also completing the different trials.
