Crisis Contest Progress Thread

It wouldn't be a proper contest without one of these; go ahead and use this thread to talk about the writing you're doing, talk about the writing you're not doing, make excuses, form grudges, talk about how you have it all mapped out in your head and just need to get it typed out, etc etc.

Sometimes my hand cramps up while writing. Is that relevant?

I have the format in my head but no story to go with it so maybe I'll use an existing story but a lot of my stories that fit the theme don't fit really well. they're kinda slow survivey not panic actiony

Can't wait to see individuals with 9000 words of anxiety posting followed by nothing being turned in.

The interesting thing about this contest, is that I'm betting over half the contestants didn't read the fineprint; I'm looking forward to the butchering of these credulous lambs.

Trying to challenge myself by getting into the basics of scripting at least. My last storygame didn't have much in the way of "game" elements, so I feel that this will be a good way to engage the player.

Other than the obvious 'write something of quality to not get banned,' another goal of mine for this is to at least write 10k words. Once upon a time, little Suranna wrote a 10k fanfiction in about 2 weeks, and that's the longest story I have written to date. Considering its been some years since then, and I have seemingly matured, I should at the very least be able to reach that. 

As for the story, I've been playing my way through Fallout 4 for the first time and got some inspiration, so I think I'll write about the outcome of a nuclear war. All I know is that I want it to be pretty gory, and focused a lot on my main character's trauma from being irradiated from the bombs.

The hope is that with a simple 500+ words a day consistently, I will be able to finish writing with plenty of time to spare.

Ideally.

I'm up to 1500 words. Considering that I've only worked on it a little last night and today during my break, if anyone is doing worse than me they should be worried.

So far, I've finished one route of five, maybe six, and I'll soon be finished with a second.
I'm kind of worried that it might be a little too edgy? Like, a lot of it is just the main character being depressed for admittedly understandable reasons, and obviously, I know not all sad stories are bad or edgy, but I'm not sure if I have the writing skills to make it engaging or make it be taken seriously. But I think it'll turn out okay. (:

The main character just being depressed isn't edgy, that's angsty.

Now if he's crying "I'm sorry mom" while fucking a dead headless hooker, then he's edgy.

She's updated me on her progress and its unfortunately very little. She was having motivation issues.

From what she's been telling me recently though, she should be writing more soon though (not counting the upcoming thunderdome challenge which I'm sure she'll do just fine in!).

TL;DR We've been sharing progress with each other quite a lot, and given that time is running out for both of us, that should be a motivator in of itself. We'll figure it out though! ;)

Yes I'm aware she can answer on her own, just figured that she wasn't online so uh...

Whatever...

She has been online a lot, I have a feeling she will be soon again. But your answer was also about what I expected.

Still making progress.


I really like the religions I came up with for my storygame, I wish the plot had room for developing them more.
