A City Lost

This is a story about an artificer making his way through the world. Making choices who shape who he is and who he will become. With even his motives shifting based on his choices.

Authors Note:

This is an entry for EndMaster's prompt contest.

The prompt was, "This story’s protagonist is an artificer, magical blacksmith, or creator of magical weapons. You can translate this prompt to a sci-fi equivalent if you want."

I managed to make this story into a complete product with all the content I wanted in the time given, but I didn't have time to polish the prose much. Please leave any feedback you have. And just for fun make sure to include which of the nine epilogues you got or your favorite if you read multiple.


Bound by Light

This story is about a paladin who is on a quest to investigate an unkown evil out west, joined by a lighthearted mercanary.

Authors note: This story was made in a few days for Corgi's Lords of the land 2 contest. Not really proud of it, but it is what it is. Please leave any feedback you have in the reviews because while I know time could've improved the prose, the plot seems to be lacking something that I'm not sure of.

Thanks, that answers my second question. I thought it was strange to start the sentence in the second quotation capitalized when there was no period, but just assumed that's how it worked. That first one is just super wrong though. I thought that period since you didn't turn the question mark into a comma it meant you had to capitalize the tag.

damn, might need to turn rich text editor for that red underline.

Just reached 10k, slow progress these last few weeks, and just learned that some of precieved notions about dialouge grammar were wrong! Thanks Gower... I thought that question and exclamation marks went like this "Why is Ace so retarded?" You ask. Instead of this "Why is Ace so retarded?" you ask. I also thought that joining sentences work like this "That's a complicated question," I answer, "Something to do with the brick wall he ran into." Instead of this "That's a complicated question," I answer. "Something to do with the brick wall he ran into." I swear to god I saw these somewhere at some point. I have no idea where I got this idea from. But I've been following these rules consistently for my entire life up until this point. E: Maybe I got the 2ed thing from this? I think this is correct grammar? "I hate my life," I start, "and everything that comes with it."

If you're worried about going overboard because you're worried people won't read it, I wouldn't let that stop you. If you're worried about going overboard because you're scared you won't finish if you aim too high, maybe try 20k or so. Still enough to tell a good story, but not impossibly large. Or just do what you want. Worst outcome is you give up, which you can always try again.

Maybe I should be, but I'm not worried about the shaming standards. If I submit anything it'll be something that I believe is more than good enough to meet them, and if I'm wrong and get SHAMED then at least I wrote something I'm proud of. The real failure would be not taking the time to write and revise and submitting something incomplete or something I know is ass. I was more asking because I've heard thoughts on it before on the forum, but I guess you're right. It's a small thing that doesn't really matter all that much, better to just do what fits best.

Didn't write last week after a streak of 8 days of writing. Started again yesterday and have written yesterday and today. Up to almost 8k. So how do we feel about long pages? I know the general advice is nothing more than 1k, but how do we feel about 2k pages? Thoughts?

7 days into daily writting, and I'm finally reaching the point I always reach where I feel like everything sucks and I should just tare it all to pieces. Obviously the solution is just to keep writting, and so I will. The only time I didn't get this feeling was my last published storygame, where I spent way too much time that I don't have brainstorming so I could feel confident in it. I plan to just keep going and fix later, though it really is painful to write in this state. But as long as I get the words on the page I'll have something to work with I guess.

I intentionally downsided to a small for that reason actually, 310 assuming the place I go to is the same calories per oz as starbucks, which idk if they are.

I'm at 5k now. Written everyday for the last five days. Feels pretty good. But now the Persona 3 remake is out, so hopefully I don't devolve into a ball of apathy.
