Would anyone else entering the contest be down to talk about our story ideas and just sort of bounce ideas off each other? I’m feeling a little stuck with secondary plot ideas, and it would be great to have someone to chat with. PM me if you’re interested!
luckily, a story i’ve been working on for a while matches the competition theme so i just need to polish the first chapter before continuing. can’t wait to see what you write! please can you PM me a link to your story once it’s published?
I’ve listed a few ideas earlier in this thread, feel free to look at them.
I will! Best of luck to you
thanks, you too! <3
Good Luck Everyone!

But can I do the coding from a phone?
I heard from somewhere I couldn’t
But I’ll try it, thank you!
You can. You can open the writer portal on your phone, get your script, and then put things in there like @CHARACTER stands screen center AND CHARACTER FACES RIGHT
I’d definitely not have tried if you didn’t tell me
I really appreciate this
Do we need to have choices in our story? Or will my chances to win be low when I have no choices in my story? @Melani3
Fr. I’m not huge on putting choices in, but idek. Maybe just do small ones?
I learned of the last contest way too late to enter, so I’m extra excited this theme fits so well with one of the ideas I’ve been super excited to get writing and planning for awhile!
Good luck to everyone who enters, and I’m always happy to lend and ear if anyone needs someone to bounce ideas off of! <3
All stories entered to the contest are graded on a rubric, and you will lose points if you don’t include choices. I would recommend to add at least a few meaningful choices to each episode so you won’t lose as many points
I was wondering if I’m allowed to mention real place in the story ?
Like Los Angeles or any other town?
I guess so, I think I will add choices that won’t impact the story. I started writing the my story before the contest was announced, so originally I didn’t plan on adding choices Bit I think it’s very important for the contest though.
I guess you’re right I started writing my story before the contest was announced and originally I I didn’t plan on adding choices
But I guess will add some that won’t affect the story line because of the contest
I was wondering too…
Does anyone know this???
Heyy, what’s the best time for publishing a story for this contest?
Can we change out story title before the deadline? For example: I named it SWY:xyz but now I want to name it SWY:abc.
Yes, you can. If you have already filled out an entry form, you need to send a support ticket to get it changed (:
