I was going to save this post for tomorrow but after dealing with a nasty back-and-forth with another user I feel like it's better if I just get all my thoughts about this matter out now and articulate my feelings clearly and concisely.
I entered a story in the JTK rewrite contest and didn't make the top five, which really sucks. It's a huge disappointment and it sucks even worse that I had to find out in the middle of the night while searching my email for a completely different subject. I guess that last part is more my fault than anyone else's. Still, it sucks.
That doesn't mean I'm bitter at the judges or want to demand a recount or implore the admins to bend the rules to my will or anything ridiculous like that, of course. I lost. I acc…Read more >
I'm extremely excited to announce that I've completed my entry for the "Jeff the Killer" rewrite contest! This is something I wanted to do even before the contest was announced and I'm really proud of how it came out. I've posted the Pastebin in the thread, but I'll post it here too so it's easy to find. I hope that's alright. http://pastebin.com/64W4ad13Read more >
Hey, I've got a horror story for you: a guy tries to get writing done, but it's so damn hot and he has no air conditioner in his room anymore, so instead he just suffers and gets absolutely zero work done.
And the scariest part is this story is completely true! Ooohhh no! Hyper-realistic heat!Read more >
I'm extremely proud right now in ways I can't even express! I've only been on this site a month or two by this point, but I'm absolutely thrilled to say that one of my stories, Jacko the Very, Very Bad Clown has just been nominated for a "Pasta of the Month" award! Mean, what a treat. I can't even describe the state I'm in right now. I'm over the moon, as corny as Kansas in august, playing the mamba with Marconi, I don't even know! Haha!
I just never thought I'd ever even get noticed for my writing, let alone be awarded for it! Even if I don't win (there's some very stiff competition out there, there are already a lot of great stories from some terrific authors) it's still a huge honor just to be nominated and it means the world to me!
Thank…Read more >
Do you think there's a type of copypasta stories that don't necessarily fall into the "creepy" or "horror" category? But are still filled with violence and sex and other vulgar themes? Kind of like exploitation films?
Maybe there's a budding niche there: Exploitation Pastas. Y'know, Pastasploitation. Stuff like rape revenge stories, gang shootouts, and other stuff that isn't necessarily scary or creepy, but still has lots of death and murder?
Maybe one day they'll be an entire other type of wiki to fill that niche.
Just some showerthoughts.Read more >
