Announcing our Thriller Creator's Contest!


#147

Haven’t released or updated a story for ages, so I guess I’ll get started on writing one for this contest. :heart_eyes:


#148

The number of reads doesn’t matter, actually! What matters is reader retention, i.e how many of your readers actually finish the story


#149

I’ve already given my story a title however I have since thought of a better title. It is not an old story so would I be allowed to change it or do I need to start again?


#150

thank you


#151

It sucks that the story has to be completed…


#152

Why not @Jesse


#153

Rules are rules bb 🤷🏾


#154

Ok @Mary-P pp


#155

'Welcome dd


#156

Aww. That’s cute


#158

I am so looking forward to getting mine finished, I’ve found a partner to help me do it as well now because I found myself getting distracted by other things, that is ok isn’t it?


#159

I was told when this rule was implemented, that the ‘readers’ of the original story are more likely to read a sequel and such. It’s like starting with an already-set fan base.

However, this was like two years ago and my information might be outdated.


For re-titling, I assume it’s because the reader retention will be screwed up because yours might be much higher / much lower than the others. Whereas, new stories their reader retention can be heavily effected if a single person stops reading.


#160

I know a few people in recent contests that had amazing stories but did not make the shelf due to the story being a spin-off/ sequel.


#161

I’m feeling really conflicted as whether to do it or not. I want to because it will help take my mind off a lot of things that are happening but then again I don’t want to because I’m worried I won’t be able get it done in time and I’m also not very good at this. So I was wondering if anyone would reply and voice their opinion on what I should do. Only if you want. It would help me a lot if you did. Thank you.


#162

If you have an idea and think you would enjoy writing it, then you should.
Even if you don’t make the contest deadline, you can still publish it as a regular story.
And even if you don’t think you’re very good at this, that’s the best reason to give it a try, because you won’t improve if you don’t practice!


#163

Yay! I’m so entering. Sounds awesome.


#164

If we submit the story as completed, but decide to continue it, can we do that?


#165

Thank you so much. This really helped me, I think I’m going to enter!


#166

After the results, sure :grinning: But the first part has to be complete


#167

When is gonna end
