And some scenarios.

Well, what about "Together if None of Them Died"? TINTD? Just to show it's the same and different.



As for the thing with the music, I would kinda like to, but I don't have 24 hours I can stay awake during, so...yeah. That, and I'm not sure I have enough music to provide me with enough ideas. I'm kinda in the same boat as Nebula in that regard.

Hmmm... how 'bout we try breaking it up, if we don't have time? Surely we can find an hour of non-interrupted writing time. We use Shuffle to decide the songs on-the-spot, then have 60 minutes to write. We'd post the song when it loads, then, one hour later, post the short story we had been writing.

...The other issue is my long-windedness. I'm taking a Creative Writing class as of late, and I take more than an hour to write my stories. I dunno if I'm actually good enough to qualify for this challenge! But we'll see, if I can participate at all.

I am also taking a Creative Writing class, and I finished a two and a half page prologue (only because I was told not to go over) in about ten minutes. I could write the whole thing if I had better guidelines, but the prologue is what we need, and what we have requirements for, so...

Well, writing a prologue is different from writing a short story. I have to make a complete story, preferably at least four pages, and usually with some other requirement, like starting with the line "The neighbors were at it again..." or including certain words into the story, such as Penny, Eyeglasses, Candlestick, and Photograph. It's not really the same, as it has to be complete in and of itself. A prologue just sets up for something bigger; that's easy to do quickly. It doesn't have to resolve yet, and figuring out how to pace things often slows me down.

If you go too fast, afterall, then nothing is established by the time you put some weight on those foundations. Nobody cared when Jessica died! That was because she should've had more development. However, nobody wants to read a story for hours and hours before anything really interesting happens, or gets closure. Nor do I want to spend more time than I must to get to a plot point. I mean, look at Vita. "Who's Vita?" you ask? She's that girl who went missing in Twilight Town. Remember? Oh, right, it's been FOREVER since the story was moving at any decent pace, so you probably don't! ...Ah, wait, that doesn't match up with my argument. Sorry.

I understand that, and ultimately the rest of the story is gonna end up being about 30 pages, although no more than 50. Every day we have to write up a story with certain things like you're describing. Most of 'em turn out half a page to a page, but for example, one of them was to write a story about an old farmhouse. Another was to make something created with inspiration from the song "No Woman No Cry" (Bob Marley), and one that started with "She headed down the aisle, turned left, and ran." We get about ten minutes.

Hm... maybe it's just because I always stop to think about how to proceed from there, or to choose the best phrasing.

Nah, I write in my spare time on occasion <sp?> too, and I do the same thing. I'll put something down (usually dialogue) and then realize, "That's...not the way he/she would say that..." Or "People don't talk like that, how would they say it?" And outside of dialogue, "That could be a little clearer...and maybe use smaller words."

^This. I'm doing several other RPs besides what's on here, and in a couple of them I'll have to do character handling from time to time with another player's characters. One of the key things in doing so is not what YOU yourself would do in that given situation, but what THEY would do. Also, I have a few dictum lists lying around that I use for consultation. While these are pretty bare-bones and simple, even knowing a character's choice swear or another generic word, perhaps even a catchphrase or some other line that helps keep their integral character in mind really does help.

Welp, there goes that plan. -_- My parents decided tomorrow would be the perfect day to get new carpet... So, my posting will be sporadic at best... I'll still post the topic and be online as much as possible tomorrow though.

Why does your parents' new carpet impact you? I'm legitimately wondering this, I'm not just asking to be an asshole. I mean, if my parents went to get carpet, I'd say "Cool, make sure it's not puke-green." Unless you're saying you legitimately care what kind of carpet you get...

My guess: he'll be out of the house while the carpet gets put in, and thus, will lack Internet access. Just a guess, though.

That is exactly it. The whole house is getting new carpet so I can't be there at all tomorrow. My access to the web depends on if I manage to go somewhere that has internet.

...Have you considered telling them that you don't need new carpet? My house, personally, has carpet in all of 2 rooms, and it's not a problem. Assuming you have a carpeted house, I don't think the carpet needs replacing unless it's got mold growing on it. Which leads to my question. DO you need new carpet?
