Re: Contest: Running Nowhere

Not against the rules to have wargaming, online gaming, and friends in general vote. Not going to make fake accounts for myself and vote =/...Friends voting for me is a different story though. EDIT: However, since I have since another similar post, I too, shall shamelessly +1 myself. EDIT EDIT: Also...

Re: Looking for writers?

It seems that he does have a writer now, but a project this massive needs more than one. I'd really hate to see all the faction army books be the work of one author. Not much has been said about the writing except in the latest update, so I guess we will get to know more as time goes on. Until then,...

Re: Looking for writers?

I've already emailed Matthew about this. Here is the reply:

We will eventually be looking for writers, but we're not ready for that yet.

Keep an eye on the project developments as I will announce any job openings there.

Yeah, he said we can do as many as we want for the contest.

Contest: Running Nowhere

Three lightly armored men crept through the dead overgrown grass, stalking their prey. A large rock sat as the only structure in this part of the field, being the only place their prey could hide. Continuing forward, the three bandits split up to surround the rock. Each kept a long rifle, nothing to...

Re: Contest: A waltz with death

The smell of ozone and gunpowder and blood intermingle in the air. The fog from ordinance hung over the battlefield like death, like the ghosts of the dead. Intermingle in the first sentence then hung in the next one. Choose one tense for the story. After picking the tense to tell the story in(past...

Re: Reclaiming Her, a Reclaimers short story

Hmm, with some editing and revision, this story just might be the one I fear most in this contest.

Re: Contest-Prototype

“I’ve finally made it.” Isolde whispered aloud as she entered the chamber before her. I wouldn't open with a quote. Instead, I think showing her excitement through actions and showing us the chamber would be a much better approach. A description of a chamber, done right, could make for an interesti...

Re: Contest: Stalking the Prey

Yeah, I think this needs to be expanded and put into paragraphs. I thought it was the humans getting owned and the viewpoint switch confused me. It's a great idea, but I think expanding upon it and giving it reason will make it a much better piece. I'd like to see an epic skirmish that would take pl...

Re: Contest:- Facility 411-ON

want some quick, easy advice that will enhance the writing really quick? Go back over and remove any, and all, adverbs. Most of the time you do not need to use them - they are easy ways of writing. Most often, you can find other ways of wording your sentence to the point you don't even need that li...

. A sort of... global warming, is what I think what he called it. I'd get rid of the ellipses and instead just make it "A sort of global warming is what he called it." These plants though, weren’t quite the miracle people had hoped. Changing this to "These plants weren’t quite the miracle people ha...

Re: Contest:- Facility 411-ON

I'd actually suggest not making it longer. As an editor, I realize that a short story actually becomes much harder to write well the longer it is. In this genre(Sci-Fi), along with all the other speculative fiction genres, it is best to limit the word count so that just the right amount information ...

Re: Reclaimer Concept

When first imagining the Reclaimers in my head, this is actually similar to what I was thinking of. I think it looks great and would love to see more. However, since people are busy I know that is difficult to create more. Whenever I am writing my short story for the contest, this image will be in m...
