Alright, Writers! Project GO!

Postby Chuey » Tue Oct 27, 2009 6:19 pm

I want to get activity at NSC pouring in downpours again, so here's something to get the blog going again as well as your minds and some creativity. And heck, whichever story is voted best by the community will receive themselves a super awesome special rank. Oh yeah, the contest details. Riiiight...

I'm challenging everyone to begin writing a story. The stories will be kept at the blog, but not to keep the forum dry, but to get that side of NSC some light again. It will become a new feature and everything. Those interested please post after you finish reading so I have a general idea, but here's how it will work. You will end up writing a full story over a period of time, but let's start with Chapter 1. You will have to be original, try to throw in elements you would never throw into a story piece before. No plagiarism, all your own, blah blah. We're mature enough to know that. You should use proper spelling and grammar to the best of your ability. This can be about ANYTHING, but it has to be appropriate and so forth. Joke stories (not comedy, I mean like random crap similar to the mini biography submissions) won't be accepted and I'm gonna be real irritated because NSC really could use the light of the skies right now.

Alright Chuey, stop rambling. No word limits. Hope to see some writers, maybe I'll do one too if enough people are serious about this.

I have come up with a great idea for this. Only problem is, I suck at writing. And I'm lazy. o-o

A chapter per week is the current idea in mind, giving you plenty of time. We'll see once we get started. But I'd love to have you participate. NS;)

I'll say yes as long as the 1000 word cap is lifted. Chuey, you wrote for the NSC Fanfic, you should know that chapters are not under 1000 words.

I think, if anything, there should be a minimum of 400 words.

Though I can understand where the 1000 word limit comes from. Chuey's going to have to be reading these, and it's more than just one chapter. It's however many chapters are entered, and he has to read all of them. But I think there should be some leniency for the sake of the story. If it's going to be 1002 words, then you shouldn't be disqualified.
