Lonely spinster whose cat died a few years ago, works in an invention office for a healthcare system, lives in one of the cutest walk-in basement apartments you've ever seen named StormGrace (she names all her places) and hopes she'll be as beautiful in heaven as her toon is in Stormwind.

    Too Little Too Late, But Wish for Some Feedbank. Hello - A couple weeks ago I ventured into this unknown territory to please a long-time friend who has continually insisted I should try writing in something other than the mean streets of Craigslist R&R. Another reason for her exhortation is that this spot was related to World of WarCraft (which would recommend itself to me) and get me out of "that damn game" she so earnestly wishes I'd relinquish. But it was the 3D figurine that really drew me in, haha.

    But when I arrived and read a few of the stories, asking for "The Big Picture", I put up a post that said, "I am totally out of my league here!" I got several nice replies. But I never did pursue it, and now it's the night before the contest ends. I do have a little wish and idea and request for any savvy participants/readers here, and that is: Would you indulge me by simply hearing my two or three ideas and tell me which one, two or all Might have seemed viable to you. I've been so cautious about everything in life, that this backing out of Movella's W.o.W. contest is just another example of a road Not taken. I don't know where or how to post any specific story thoughts, but I will look for some kind of response here on this scrren and try to proceed if anyone thinks I should. If you were to read my ideas and say, "Those ideas were dumb", it would validate my reluctance, but if you were to say, "Those ideas sounded viable, too bad you didn't develop them," then that would be interesting too. That could mean I might try again some other time. (I am Not fishing for a response like that, truly, lol.)

    Even though it might require some magic spell to change your self defensive prison that you seem to have put yourself in, I will try anyway. Unfortunately I read this too late as the comp is now over. It seems to me that you are in great fear of failing and needs someone's approval to take a baby step outside your comfort zone. If you got an idea that YOU think is worth pursuing you should pursue it even though everyone else thinks is hilarious (which I doubt). I'm confident that any of your ideas could have created a story worth reading or at least developed your skills in writing which in either case is a gain. Those who do not fail, do nothing at all. Write first ask later and start taking some chances ;)

    [This chat pane won't expand and I cannot see what I've typed, can't navigate through it (even if I try to pull the lower right corner out/down). I can no longer see the middle lines of it (even if slowly using my keyboard arrow to trace a path that might bump it up a line or two) --- soooo, I'm sorry if part of it misspelled or nonsensical. It IS 4 o'clock in the morning, after all. As it is, I've written this post in three short segments, athough I still can't view the entire thing, and I can only hope the segments are fully here!]

    Ohhh my gosh, seeing your comment 'bout gave me a heart attack. My ex-boyfriend who brought me into World of WarCraft and two years later left it and left me <sniff>, has a picture exactly like this one, "Veritas" is just the kind of cool name he'd use, and I'm a little groggy with it being middle o' the night--all of which combined brought me to a complete arrest before I could even read what you said (after clicking on the photo to see it wasn't who I thought it was). Sheesh.

    Okay.. well.. getting past that (which has a double meaning just now, lol) ... thanks so much for your reply. It was gently confrontive and challenging, and I know I just need to get over myself. Could I tell you what my ideas were and would you be interested in commenting on them? Should I put them up here or is that a bit lame? Should I write them directly to you somehow? If you like older women would you have dinner with me? oh oops, MT/wrong chat

    Big picture please?

    5 years agoReply
    Well, this feels like SUCH a stupid question but I just have to ask in order to proceed. I heard about the World of WarCraft writing contest and, being an avid noob and an amateur writer, I want to enter. If I understand it correctly, this site is like a sort of billboard where people post their stories for others to read and critique? What if someone steals my story or copies my idea? How can there be a contest if everyone knows all of the entries? (So sorry, I think I'm not getting the big picture here, or something like that.)

    thank you for saying that. I've felt so bummed out last night, I must admit. Okay, in a few days when my job is claiming all of my best hours, I'll try it. It's only embryonic right now, and not only is it unfinished but... well.. it's just going to be embarrassing. heh, we'll see i guess. Also, I wrote another post on another part of the forum, and now I can't find it. do you know how I can see it, and any replies?

    What was it called? The post? And do you remember which part of the forum it was in? I think your email notifications (unless you've turned them off) should tell of any replies :D

    Hello - I want to do this and I'm excited about it. I'm glad you said we can submit more than one because I have more than ONE idea! But ... where the rules and method for applying? Is there a word length? In what form must the story be submitted and to where or whom? I've only just heard about this and there's not much time for me before the deadline, so please answer as soon as you can! thanks so much.

    If you look down the right-hand sidebar there's a green button labelled "Join this competition" - you click that and then select the story you want to submit. As there isn't a word limit included in the contest description it's hard to say, but a quick glance through submissions shows a pretty wide range of lengths, so I'd not worry about it too much! As for form, poetry, essay and prose all seem to be accepted, and you can see the limitations for submissions in terms of colour or whatever when you try to upload a story chapter.

    Thank you very much. And I'm really not very good at navigating websites (kinda dense abt them really, maybe it's my age which is not doubt older than any of you here) -- but I asked another question in the FAQ section. Now I'm looking for that section to see if there are responses, haha. Since I do know how to see This one, perhaps I'll cut and paste it into here. Sheesh.

    I'm afraid I may be too late to get any exposure before the deadline. Any views/likes would be appreciated!
