stargirl, The Wordsmith
My name is Stargirl, and I like to read, write, and lurk in the forums. Any other hobbies? Yes, I do Kung Fu and enjoy spending time in the woods. I am not currently writing any storygames, hopefully that will change soon!

I would say that the second won by a long shot.
The first one about ghosts seemed to skim over lots of details and it felt like they were trying to summarize a long story that they read five years ago and can't remember anything about. The narrative style also didn't feel right for a story of that size and it distracted me from the actual story. The only thing that I liked about the story was its plot, but the way it was told ruined it for me. Altogether the story felt rushed and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
The second one wasn't the best either, however, it did have slightly more okay parts than the first one. First of all the story felt a bit more thought through, but still awfully rushed. It had more details than the other story, which is to say little over one. The story was easy to follow because the paragraphs were nicely spaced and the story moved at a better speed than the first one. I also liked the kind of humor in it and how it told the story in an interesting enough way that didn't make me want to break my computer. I do feel like this as the easy way out though and that they put minimum effort into this. I could tell that the first one was written by someone who was trying hard even though the writing itself sucked. If we were voting on effort and time it probably took to write then I would say the first, but unfortunately the second one sucked less and I actually liked it (very much possible it was because I had just read the first story right before that). So I vote for the second one.

I did it, but most of the time I was just clicking random ones that I recognized from this post.

Happy Belated Birthday! Sorry it's late, but here is my pitiful attempt at a comic. I can't draw, so don't expect anything too great.

I agree with Mizal, we should try to see how deep this well is.

I'll try, but that might be hard considering I don't get birthday or Christmas money, I mostly just get books or a Barnes and Noble gift card. (Books are expensive though, so I'm not complaining!)
Edit: Oh, and a few days ago I got my hands on a physical copy of King Solomon's Mines, so I might just try and read that and write a week late review on it instead. Is that allowed?

... I failed. I am nowhere near finishing the book and have been reading other things. I do plan on finishing it at some point but because I am reading it on the family ipad, (Totally the only reason) things have been going slow. I can only read 3 pages without my brother taking it to play minecraft or my dad to watch a show.

How dare you! Watership down is an amazing book, and even though I just started reading it like a week ago I am loving it so far.
Edit: Oh... this is just an old thred that some random newb posted in. Sorry.
