I just want to say good luck to everyone in the contest! Remember if you are in Endmaster's contest, you are in an immortal part of CYS HISTORY! Let's everyone write the best story we can and all of us publish on time, 50 new stories will make a big difference for the site and I know we can do it!
I am out of school for three days and I will write the entire time!
It is weird seeing this positivity here...
But I agree, let's all do our best. 50 stories ain't happening though, I'm thinking 25.
49 opportunities for the shamed pit.
I approve of acknowledging that being in an EndMaster contest is being an immortal part of CYStian history.
I like that I am now immortal. And I think it is a great motivator to work hard due to FEAR of IMMORTAL SHAME.
This is surprisingly wholesome.
Good luck, everyone! Remember: Don’t worry about imperfection; worry about stagnation. Even if your progress may not be 'good enough' for your own standards, writing at least a bit each day is much better than not writing at all.
Let's all perform to the best of our abilities :)
This is definitely good advice, similar to ninja's gospel of "get up too early and spew shit into a doc every fucking day until your brain explodes".
So, who else hasn't started?
I wonder how everyone is doing so far. I haven't been able to write in over a week but I still think I'll finish before the end of the month.
Mine is coming along as expected. The first stages of panic are starting to set in, which should begin to stir up inspiration.
I'm actually close to finishing mine; I'm aiming to have it published before I go away on the 25th. I was sick and stayed home from school last week, so took the opportunity to do some writing then.
As for the quality of the storygame, that's a completely different thing, of course.
Edit: Just realized this is my 100th CYS post! Only took 38 months.
I wrote the first four pages in the first week, and then I stopped and havn't started again. Definititly not going to be able to write out everything I planned.
Taking work off for a week for this lol
I'm really behind schedule and there's nothing I want more than an extension right now, even if it's only by a day or two. But regardless of whether that happens, I'll finish this storygame or die trying.
I'm writing on a computer so I won't get paper cuts, but if I stare at the screen for too long I might become blinded and wander out into traffic, thus leading to my death.
Or I'd face some other multi-step death starting with writing too often. But I truly hope this doesn't happen because I really want to finish this storygame.
As I remember even unfinished I liked yours better than a lot of the other entries for that contest.
Some noob just joined the contest yesterday so there's still plenty of time to turn something entertaining in.
