Is that really your best, or could you just not figure out how to post pictures with html due to the lasting brain damage caused by falling off mom's taco truck one too many times?

But kudos for the prompt reply, these other noobs are all shy.

Are you a weeb btw, and how do you think you'd be at writing zombie stories? We might have some job openings due to the recent utter uselessness of our two most Mexican Mexicans.

Assuming you even are Hispanic and aren't just some boring white kid or Korean troll or something.

First, I'm Hispanic (Puerto Rican)
Second, I'm not a weeb
Third, I'd think I'm at least OK at Writing, Zombies, is an ehh for me
Fourth, I'm currently writing a Star Wars fan-fic so currently I'm not sure if I'll do multiple projects at once, but maybe?

Interesting, Darkspawn was also working on Star Wars fanfic at one point. I shall enjoy it if one of his most hated enemies beats him to the punch. Let us know if you need help with the editor and whatnot. (And never mind about the zombie thing, it was a reference to something he was working on before becoming terminally lazy.)

Usually we recommend starting with a smallish game just to get the hang of things, these games can take a lot more effort than a regular story, and once the plot starts branching it can get out of hand quickly. New authors tend to get over their heads with attempting some giant epic and burn out quickly.

You might also want to browse a few of the more popular stories here just to get an idea of what the editor is capable of and what quality level readers are looking for.

Endmaster's Eternal is a good place to start if you like big damn fantasy epics at at. Or Ground Zero for post apocalypse.

One you start making some progress on your story, you might want to make a thread in the Writing Workshop for feedback and advice. If there's any major issues it's better to have them pointed out when it's still early enough to address them without major edits.

Good luck!

Oh gosh, I can't seem to find anything good to write, but currently I'm working on a story game that's Alt-History were you're a german soldier and you're fighting in Switzerland. Also working on a Red October-esq Star Wars Game. Hopefully I can finish something by the end of the month

Sorry to disappoint, but the name is just the only thing that survived from a story I scrapped a long time ago, back when I was experimenting with writing romance. I liked the name and made it a one I use online.

I told you how easy it is before, just go to the first post in a thread click move then rename the title then don't actually move it.

Changes just about every post title in the thread to the first, unless someone changed one before.

Hahah, thanks. :) I didn't think it was public yet. I'm a programmer for a living so I was just playing around trying to get a feel for how the website was done in developer mode before I started in earnest.

Oh that's cool, should be interesting to see what you come up with.

When you create a new story it's in Sneak Peek by default, so the title and description are visible, and anybody who knows how the URLs for these work can view it. (Or just go through the link on your exp page if it's one of your first three stories that you get points for.)

You can move it out of Sneak Peek just by unchecking the box in Storygame Properties if you don't want anyone getting nosy.

Pretty sure Steve is dead, so you're safe now. Maybe.

So I've been writing a lot more the past year (a bunch of short stories) and while I was having a nasty bit of writer's block I remembered this site and returned. I honestly have no clue what I was doing here for so many years, nor do I remember what Steve did.

In any case, the sci-fi category is looking frail and could use some fattening up!

Well good luck. Bill is the only guy that consistently writes decent sci fi around here, that category for whatever reason has always been pretty hit and miss

Perhaps that means y'all should have a sci-fi contest to draw in some new blood! Sci-fi is my favorite genre in all media so it's a shame that it's underrepresented.

Just wondering if you are aware of what a senseless assault on the eyes that font is on mobile. I'm gonna strongly advise you to stick to the default if you want your games to not enrage everyone.
