Do you have to be shamed to enter?
I have yet to fail. If nothing else, it's probably an easy win- considering those who enter (if any) will either flake or put together a shitstorm last minute, according to the stats
Don't phone it in, you won't win if you do.
I said that before Typecat joined. I'm no longer so cocky.
I've been wallowing in my own self-imposed shame since my errors of the previous contest, and it's time to make amends. I'm in.
I need a break so I'm in. Not sure this genre is something Im good at, but hopefully I can do good enough to climb out of the pit.
I am honored to sponsor
Locked. Good luck with your entry!
I'm sponsoring, therefore I'm not writing the story. Please it been a rough week, I've been really sick and I have so much homework to do so I actually can't.
Based on what I saw from the last event I think they will post a thread for people to submit their story links once it is closer to the deadline date. Though this could however change, so any admin go ahead and correct me if I'm wrong, please.
Ps- No I'm not joining this event. I am focused on one story I started and wish to get at least to the fifth chapter before I join any events. I'm currently on chapter two which is exciting! I will be revising chapter one at a later date however.
But to the rest have fun and I give you all the best on the event!!!
can I still join to try to escape the pit?
here it is, in all its last-minute glory
Locked, good luck with your entree
Ah nice. Thanks Mizal!
I've been down in the pit awhile and I need a little more time to pack up all my junk before moving back out topside.
Oh when this is done, give me a list of everyone who turned something in so I can take them out of the SHAME pit since I haven't been paying attention to any of this.
Man, you turned this in early and scared me into thinking I got my days all mixed up.
Almost every time there is a contest, I'm inspired to try and write an overly ambitious storygame. Every time that happens, I don't announce intent to enter, so I don't get shamed. So, in a way, I should be TRIPLE SHAMED+++ (if this loop hole wasn't allowed, anyway).
But that's right, I wrote a thing! https://chooseyourstory.com/story/hues-of-infection!
I'll resist the temptation to write an essay on the process, what I've learned, what I think of the storygame, what I'd do different, and all that jazz.
Instead, I'll only say that if you encounter bugs feel free to drop it -- but also feel free to send me a message sharing the page title. Potential bugs are visible %s, text reference to choices you didn't do, dead end pages [where link restrictions have faulty logic causing a softlock], etc. I'm still publishing because bugs are very haunting, so it makes the story fit the theme better (I also fixed some of the big ones, but I can't say I done enough testing).
Well good luck
My entry such as it is:
Just Another Saturday Night
holy fuck I should've actually written this when I had time. Why did I ever say this would be easy??? I'm deeply sorry. I have learned my lesson and gained some much-needed humility. This is a piece of trash. I just don't want SHAME; that's all I ask.
I'm done, and a full fifty seconds before the deadline at that.
Lol, yeah that's happened to people before.
Usually writing it off the site and copy/pasta over is still a good idea, just usually create the story on the site a few days ahead of time so you can publish without the waiting period after you've transferred everything over.
Well I liked Legend. I vote that one wins.
