Definately going to have to pull out all the stops on this one.


I'm going to create a story so brilliant that I haven't even begun to think of it yet! :funny:

I have an idea for a story, but considering I've never written anything like this before (haven't really written fiction at all for a looong time) it may not work. Chances are I'm not even going to get round to writing it.
Ah well

Thanks, but I think on some places the rush-writing was visible(some of the conversation etc.). I had done some minor thought work in advance, but the writing and patching unrelated scenes was done in two days. If I remember correctly, most of the judges liked it but "the masses" didn't. (I guess that makes me the elitist writer of TO :P)

I see if I can get a good idea of what to write. I've had this idea of a short story that I meant to put in the previous competition, but maybe I could stretch it to longer set.

Hopefully that state of things will continue until August 15th. :P

I am definitely entering this. I've got a few ideas.

Oh God we're all screwed, aren't we.

We may as well preemptively award Wargamer all awards, just to save us a lot of effort.

Heheh... Looking forward to reading it, man.

I am going to make myself do this this year. I've had a bunch of ideas floating around for a long time, and its about time I get down and spit them all out on paper.

EDIT: Oh, and are we allowed to ask other people to critique it before we submit it?

People in real life or elsewhere online, but it should remain confidential within the board.

Profanity is acceptable where appropriate. Keep in mind the 40k equivalent profane terms, such as "gakking", "feth", et al. In the Gaunt's Ghosts books there is a prolific amount of swearing without actually using real-world terms.

Ooh, I've got a great idea for this. Now all I have to do is get myself to write the damn thing..
