Liking to direct? Omg! You’re the :unicorn: I’ve been searching for :joy:

Thank you and good luck to you as well!

no i don’t think i am that capable to enter in such a contest as i am a new writer in episode and i am not a perfect writer that i can participate in a fantasy contest…

Don’t think that! You totally can enter. None of us are perfect writers. Being new is great because you might have a new perspective that no one has done before. Please don’t let your new status discourage you. We are all here on the forums to help. :hugs:

you are write but i don’t have any story published as i have just started it writing a few days ago and i also don’t know what this contest is. i am seriously a new fellow on episode…
but if you provide me the details maybe i can think over it and let you know:hugs::hugs:

My first published story was a contest story- as was my second story. Although I’m not proud of the first, I can’t deny that it was excellent practice in familiarizing myself with the writing portal and its workings, and it also helped me be able to complete a story easily since I had a concrete deadline. I highly recommend starting with a contest if you’re new to Episode- it makes writing easier imo :slight_smile:

The contest is pretty much authors all over the community submitting stories that fit with the theme within the time deadline (about two months) and they don’t have to be complete- just at least three episodes published by then- and Episode judges them and chooses winners for a featured shelf. Even if you don’t win, it can be a great way to get your work out there at least and gain some exposure.

If you have difficulty directing for now, perhaps consider writing in Episode Spotlight? The directing required is minimal, which makes writing super fast and easy, and it allows you to focus more on your story than your directing which can be super overwhelming at first. Although a lot of people tend to prefer Cinematic over Spotlight, Spotlight definitely has its merits.

This link should answer any more specific contest related questions for you though feel free to ask a forumer or moderator if you have any questions beyond it ^-^.

Good luck if you choose to enter! And welcome to the forums/episode :slight_smile: !

Contest entries aren’t necessary easier for new writers, they get a deadline and that can stress people out sometimes, like they’re still new, they can be slower at writing and they have to finish their story in less than 2 months, it can make it harder rather than easier

I think I’m going to try to enter but the last 6 contests I started a story but didn’t finish on time so I probably don’t will this time.

Don’t give up on hope! I already started working on my contest entry you should start right away and it will give you more time!

alright i’ll try…

There’s not a lot of fantasy stories on Epsiode and I love fantasy! I’m pretty excited. The only thing is most people tend to go for “vampire werewolf romances” and I hope that’s not gonna be the entirety of the contest.
:star2:

I won’t give up. I’m starting, I have two idea’s but not sure which one to use.

I really like the idea! I just… hate the word “fantastical”… I dunno what it is! It’s unnerving haha! But yeah, I am definitely looking forward to seeing the entries.

I think it’s a cool idea, but there isn’t many ink fantasy clothes that suit the theme. I don’t think I’ll be entering this one but I’m looking forward to the entries! :smiley:

I think it’s a cool theme! I’m not really a fantasy writer. I’d love to enter to try something different, but I have too many other projects I should work on first :sweat_smile:

I… would definitely read a fantasy story by you👀
Just saying.

It would definitely have some horror/mystery/thriller twist :joy: but I can already imagine all the plot holes I would have in my “fantasy world” :upside_down_face:

I love the theme and I’m super excited about it because I’ve had a fantasy story planned for a long long time! The only thing is I like writing in Limelight, which currently only has 1 ballgown type dress, so I’m hoping they release more so everyone isn’t wearing the same dress :joy: (Side note: I don’t know why everyone keeps saying that Limelight has more fantasy clothes than Ink. Ink has enough ballgowns to clothe an army + prince outfits, werewolf stuffy, multiple victorian outfits, etc and I’d kill to have that much in LL.)

I want to. I just need to at least finish one of my stories and find a writing partner. :joy:

I really want to but that will mean I’ll have to put my main story on the back burner
