I guess I'll pick up Inscryption again.

New here? Just the FAQS. on 2/6/2024 10:50:47 AM
Most likely not. There are stories with less "raw" word counts, but they're usually packed with scripts or is something clever like Gower's 16 words (iirc). However, for most regular stories 450 words is only enough for a single expository page or a couple of shorter ones. I took a glance over your knight story, and I would suggest adding a lot more substance to the plot, a simplistic telling of what happened in one sentence isn't going to cut it. As I suggested, try reading some higher rated stories to get a good idea of what is considered effective storytelling. It is good that you have a skeleton of the branches, but now is the time to flesh out your writing. Also, try reading some articles explaining grammar and sentence structure, your story is really difficult to read with all the mistakes. Good luck on your writing, if you have any questions or want feedback on a passage I suggest making a post in the writing workshop.

Exciting stuff. Hopefully with End also starting a story the competitors (me included) will feel motivated to write.

Thanks a lot, Mystic. I struggle with imposter syndrome often (and rightfully so, considering all the talented writers here), but your words of encouragement and advice are very much appreciated. I'll stop procrastinating and begin writing again, hopefully.

The final liberal policy has been passed! The entire country can finally heave a sigh of relief before turning their attention to less existence-threatening tasks at hand. Josef's father tips his hat at the remaining politicians, muttering that he cannot stomach this 'politik' stuff anymore, before turning to take his leave. Rumor has it that the very night the man was spotted outside of the city dividing up money with the crew of men he arrived with, along with a sobbing woman recognized from one of the whorehouses nearby. He was seen heading south toward the Mediterraneans, and was heard from no more. Just rumors, of course.

Having a mild crisis at roughly 2k words in after I realized that my writing sucked. I'll either be at a lower word count tonight or I'll take a well deserved(lol) break.

Josef's father grimly eyes the remaining politicians, and points his finger toward Bernadette, the only choice that isn't possibly Hitler. He also gestures toward the stacks of newspapers on the table, many of which reported on liberal policies that he had helped to pass.

"There's a fascist between these two, from what I can tell," Josef's father remarks. "Best to ignore both, just to be safe."

Josef's father casts a slightly suspicous glance towards Elsa, but hollers an 'aye' anyway.

Josef's father crinkles his nose at Fleischer's pig-like display, but begrudgingly agrees with an 'Aye'.
