*sigh* Fine, GMB13carat's Motivational Thread

Welp, time for me to jump on the bandwagon. I really want to finish this gosh darn story, so I guess I'll make a public thread to encourage myself, A.K.A. making myself feel extremely guilty whenever I look at this thread and haven't done a single page. That's the point of this thread, anyway.

The story in question is entitled A Warriors Game by a Non-Warriors Reader, my collaboration with @Rosetail #subtletagging. It's half WC satire, half cats-in-general satire, but it isn't like Hateclan or those kinds of things.

It's about a world of demo-cat-rcy (which arose from me not knowing sh*t about how WC works at all) and weirdness and being impaled on magic unicorns and bizarre herbs and a highway and clawing feline throats out.

You play as Squishpoo, the charismatic leader of Algaeclan (me trying to come up with a purposely stupid nature-related name) trying to hold your own against your rival clan, Yeetclan (I just gave up with the names here). There are many ways to go about doing it, but it isn't as easy as it might sound...

STATUS UPDATE UNO: August 10

Pages: Around 110-ish/??? (don't know how to see the page count)

Planning: 90%

I have a good amount of pages and shizz done right now, but there's still some work to be done. If any of you guys want to co-author... I'm open. yes

Hang on, I'll just summon the mods for a forum change...

*sets out assorted cookies*

Oh great gods and rulers of CYStia, we ask for your guidance in our times of need. We ask kindly and simply for you to move this thread from the lands of the Lounge to the workplace that is the Writing Workshop.

Squishpoo? I like it.

Algaeclan? Nice one.

Yeetclan? Yeah, you so gave up. How about TallSunflowersInTheOpenFieldClan? Or WeEatTwoLegGarbageClan? Okay, okay, maybe Yeticlan? Brambleclan? PoisonIvyClan?

Sounds great and v similar to a story I'm working on only mine is shorter and the humor is a bit different, I'm really looking forward to reading this though :)

STATUS UPDATE DOS: August 11

Pages: Around 112-ish/???

Planning: 90%

I created some new pages today but also finished the friggin' awesome Secret Ending, where you become a god and your race becomes transcendent and yadda yadda yadda. But it is a "secret" ending, so I won't spoil it for ya.

Still open for some other co-authors, if anybody wants to see it so far. 

I plan to get this finished by August 31, which is when my school starts. So yeah. See ya. :)

STATUS UPDATE TRES: August 12

Pages: Just found out it's actually 65/At least 100.

Planning: 90%

Look at me, figuring out how to see my page count and... well crap, I sure overestimated. 

I want to at least get to 100 pages! C'mon!

Anyway, I finished some more pages today and shizz, so I guess that's progress. Yay!

And again, still open for co-authors. C'mon, people!

STATUS UPDATE CUATRO: August 14

Pages: 67/At least 100

Planning: Okay, screw the "90%." I'm just going with the flow.

Got a lot done today (so far). Some new paths, some funny dialogue, all the good stuff. Still pleading for some testers/co-authors.

A'ight. I'll co-author-status you and you can check out the story. Don't add/delete anything yet.

STATUS UPDATE CINCO: August 16

Pages: 71/At least 100

I have two more co-author spots available, if anyone's interested. Anyway...

More progress today. I decided to be a dick and add a super-duper hard decision on one of the paths... but you'll find that later. :)

I could take a look at your story as a playtester.
