Not sure that's the right anagram but you know what I am referring to. Anyone up for a CYS style version? Like maybe 100 words a page, 31 pages min challenge? Just for fun.
Just looked it up. It is right.
I'm aware. That's why I said CYS style. Not my first time around the block lol.
Although I did get one thing wrong, there's only 30 days in November.
Just have a normal contest.
Lol everyone needs a trophy these days to be motivated.
Thank you for schooling me on the history of CYS. ;-)
My original pitch, which got no interest, was 100/ page. Meaning, infinite number of pages per day, just a min of 100 words per page. So a min of 3,000 words, but an unlimited max.
I kept the original pitch light and easy knowing there was just a competition recently.
Thanks, Mizal. I can attempt this after the weekend, I am busy speech writing right now
I am available for this once the weekend is over
I mean, if anyone honestly can't succeed at that, they should be shot. As everyone else has said, 103.3 words a day is ridiculously light and hardly a challenge.
Lol never saw so many excuses not to write on a writing site. It's not 100 words a day, it's 100 words a page min.
My next challenge should be 'learn to read.'
31 pages, 100 words page, 3100 words totally, little more than 103.3 words a day, as I said.
No reason to work anything out really. The only reason this thread is still alive is because of the excuses. Lol no interest this go around, it happens.
I've never chastised or said people weren't already writing. The site is growing and stories are being written. Awesome. Nor did I say we NEEDED a challenge, hence why I said ''for fun". And trolling isn't my thing. Replying to people who replied to me is my thing.
Excuses? It seems pretty obvious that no ones making excuses, seeing as multiple people have done over 100 words in replying to this thread alone, without even trying.
Hell, I could do this entire challenge tomorrow without even trying. The issue isn't that people aren't capable and need to make excuses, it's that they're far, far too capable to even pretend that there's a challenge here.
Everyone here can do math. I already did it for yoi above. But, When did I ever require ONLY 1 page a day? That would be the min effort.
You didn't actually, your math was wrong. 100 words a day would not've been enough, you'd need 103.3 recurring. So maybe a little less smug on that one.
But yeah, sure, that's the minimum, but the supposed "challenge" is achieving that. It's like saying "Oh, let's have a challenge where you write five words or more over the course of a month"? It's not a challenge, because it's way, way too easy. The minimum effort is too low, so what's the point of it?
The 2 complaints received are 1. We are burned out from other competitions and 2. Your challenge is too easy.
Going through every reply to this thread, Leora, Mizal and I have all complained that this is way too easy, and no one has complained that this they're too burned out to do this in any way. No one's complaining they're too burned out for this, because it's an incredibly easy task.
I've actually written over double the daily requirement for this thing just in replies to this thread alone. I'm genuinely struggling to understand how you couldn't see 3100 words as a requirement that provides no challenge to any writer whatsoever.
I'm not struggling to see that 3100 is not a challenge. It wasnt meant to be a taxing challenge. Hence the ''for fun" part.
So you're saying that you know 3100 isn't a challenge, even though you called 3100 words a challenge in the opening post? Either you see it as a challenge, if a light one, or you don't.
The only thing I didn't know is how you take everything you read on the internet as the word of God. It was a forum post, not a legal document.
You didn't know I'd take what you said as what you meant? It's a writing site, I'm assuming people use words correctly.
