Re: M4R

Hey, just wanted to let you know that I marked two of your stories for review as they might not be up to QS. For future stories, you may want to post them in the Writer's Workshop. 

Custom signature? pfft, as if I were that creative (talk) 22:05, February 22, 2018 (UTC)

QS Question Response

The QS stands for Quality Standards. All stories on the site have to meet them to stay. You can find them in the link below.

http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Creepypasta_Wiki:Quality_Standards

As for the review, it means that an admin will read the story to see if it can stay on the wiki or not. Sorry for marking your stories. The major issue with them is the plot. To be honest, the plots are rushed and overused. Without anything fresh, it's just another pasta out of the thousands. If you like, when you make a new pasta, you can send it my way and I can help you out? I'd love to help you if you want!

Sorry for the delay. Here's a link to your category page. You can add a brief blurb (1-2 sentences) about yourself there for people visiting the page. I also fixed up some of the capitalization and punctuation issues I found (typically involving dialogue tags) and added credit on the stories you posted here that you listed on your user page. Have a good one.
EmpyrealInvective (talk) 23:41, June 11, 2019 (UTC)

Notice #1

Your story Momma's Boy has been deleted as it directly uses content (even ripping lines and images directly from the material) from other IPs without any citation or accreditation. The main one being the Cyanide and Happiness short linked above. This message is going to serve as your only warning on the matter. I don't need to inform you how seriously we take plagiarism on this wiki. We debated issuing a six month ban and deletion of all your stories due to this grossly unethical and detrimental behavior.

Instead calmer heads prevailed and we are instead going to review all of your stories for other instances of plagiarism. I would suggest coming clean if you have anything else otherwise we will issue the full ban if any of your other posts are revealed to be from other sources (this will also include the stories you requested I remove a while back and stories that have been deleted). I would suggest taking this time to reflect. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 16:29, October 2, 2019 (UTC)

While I appreciate the message on my talk page and your sincerity, I will note that it is hard to see this as a subconscious accident given that the story in question used lines verbatim and scenes described as they were depicted down to the detail. Typically when there is an issue like this with someone taking inspiration they're not cognizant of, there are slight similarities and not direct word-for-word line usage. Maybe once in a blue moon, an author will accidentally crib a description through random chance, almost never the entire action-by-action breakdown of characters complete with lines used wholesale.
As for taking your word on whether or not you've used content from other sources without citation, I'm afraid that you really have lost any level of trust I would have to take your words at face-value. I hope you're sincere, but given that we've had issues with plagiarists saying similar things in the past, we're not really taking any chances and will act accordingly. As such, we are still going to review every single one of your stories to make sure you're not taking them from another source.
As for a rough estimate of when we'll be done, all I can say is, when we're good and ready. It's going to take multiple people reading your stories and looking over multiple sources to confirm what you're saying. It could takes weeks, it could take months. I'm not going to put a date on it because it's going to require a lot of digging, research, and recollection to check your writing. It's going to require bureaucrats, admins, and users enlisted to help to pore through your stories. I'm digging through deleted stories and cross-checking them. This is not something that is going to be knocked out in a timely manner because of how dire it is. This isn't something that we can set a date on as, to be honest, it's going to take up a lot of time. I hope you're being sincere, I honestly do. Have a good one, Cornconic/Guy. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 22:03, October 10, 2019 (UTC)
I'm sorry that this has been inconvenient for you, but the truth is, with finals and other issues going on in my life, I haven't really had the time to clear stories and a lot of managing this and clearing has fallen on my shoulders (as you can see by the few times your stories have been cleared). I also don't really have this put as the top priority in terms of site managing/maintenance so the day-to-day things like quality checking stories, patrolling the site, and reviewing edits/comments/etc. will typically be dealt with first. I also decided to start with your deleted stories first and work my way forward chronologically so a majority of the progress has been under the surface.
We have multiple users looking over your stories, but as such, we do need to reach a consensus on things. A story like Bad Behaviour which one person pointed out seems to be inspired by a screen grab from Reddit/4chan about a woman showing aborted fetuses to discipline their child and your latest story in the writer's workshop has some similarities to a writing prompt from a few years back has led to some concerns and debate about inspiration vs. plagiarism. While it is not unethical to use a prompt from a contest or to take inspiration from something, it does widen the pool of content we now have to sort through to make sure you're not cribbing ideas from other places without citation and now requires more looking into.
As for the length of stories being a factor in the plagiarism checking process, that doesn't really matter much as we're looking at the plot and premise themselves. While these stories may not take lines directly from the source, if they directly use a premise from that source and fail to cite them, that is an issue. As for a rough estimate, I can't give one as I can't predict my schedule. I'll try to work on it more over break but that being said, this isn't a top priority in terms of site functionality and I will be working in a clinic over break so that too has more focus. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 13:57, December 8, 2019 (UTC)
As is the case for all stories posted to the website, they get checked to make sure they're not plagiarized from other sources, are up to standards, and fit the criteria of a horror story. They likely won't be marked for review unless the person reviewing it feels like there's a reason why it needs to be reviewed (QS, ToU violations, possible cribbing of material, etc.).

Narrator's Heads Up (with video link)

Hey, how are you? I happened to see a reply in a thread about you being open to your stories for narration.

I’m new to here, as well as my YT channel, but not new to the industry/digital space.

I’m looking for stories to narrate, and am giving full credit and links back to your stories as well.

I want to make sure that I abide by the “writer's code”, and give back to where the credit is due.

I’ve uploaded my first video today on my channel if you want to take a look, to make sure that my style and voice will fit with your writing.

https://youtu.be/rdcFHgjUd0Y

Let me know if you’d be cool with me doing some of your stories. If you have any words of advice, I’d love to hear them.

Thanks.

Author's Plea

Hersis358 (talk)

Notice #2

Your comment on Lohse's thread has been removed. I'm going to ask you to refrain from commenting and providing advice if you are unable to control your pettiness and desire to snipe at other users. Using single quotes to belittle someone's experience ("judging on how 'difficult' it's been for you to even write it in the first place") when you have no frame of reference for what they may be experiencing is pointlessly instigatory and seems to be made from a place where you're looking to get a rise out of them. It seems to be a recurring theme here.

Failure to do so will be treated as drama-baiting as that is what it was. I suggest you take some time to reflect and figure out why you're needling other users. Failure to do so and trying to start internet slap fights will result in a temporary ban as it's childish and not conducive to helping authors improve. If you find you're unable to provide feedback without belittling someone, then I'm going to suggest reflecting on why that is. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 15:04, April 14, 2020 (UTC)

"You don't know my life. You think I've never had family issues before?" And yet, you're more than fine taking potshots at someone who has had similar experiences? I'm sorry, but having that experience in your past is not a freebie to be a jerk. The other comment you made that day implied a user (who failed to follow the writer's workshop guidelines and was given a day long ban after a warning) was going to get perma-banned based off of their posts and actively undercut them. I've had two separate people message me/other admins about whether or not we should intervene due to your comments and how pointlessly pithy they've been recently. Your responses are not just an issue from my perspective. Your peers on this site have also brought this up.
I'm also not going to leave a comment up that is blatantly trying to shit-stir so that when it does inevitably blow up into drama, it's too late to minimize the impact of you needling someone pointlessly. Given how your previous comment was received, I really hope you can realize how needless it was to return with a barb wrapped up in advice that had already been given to them. If not, then I do honestly think you need to spend time thinking about how you interact with people because it isn't likely to help anyone improve their writing if you're also talking down to them. Diminishing them when you have zero evidence that their experience wasn't traumatizing is instigating and does nothing to further the discussion. Trying to say that you also offered advice while insulting them is counter-intuitive and diminishes the feedback you were trying to give them.
The purpose of the writer's workshop and site questions forum (really, the whole site) is not to gate-keep and treat other people poorly from some misconceived sense of elitism. Our goal is to read well-written stories and help authors to improve. If you're looking to give insults and feedback hand-in-hand by minimizing/downplaying what may be happening to the person while wrapping it up in what someone else has already said, then I honestly think you would be better off not providing feedback if that's the only way you think you can help. If you are unable to give someone feedback without being a dick to that person, then that person is better off without your feedback. I honestly hope you're mature enough to realize that you can weigh in on someone's story without trying to under-cut them. I think you can help people improve, but the way you're proceeding now by needling people is not the way. Now, as I have an exam tomorrow, I'm going to be heading off. Have a good one.

My name is Lucy Kay, aka Spirit Voices, and I’m a horror narrator on YouTube. You can find my channel here: https://www.youtube.com/c/SpiritVoices/. It’s great to meet you!

I was just browsing the Wiki when I came across your story “The Anniversary.” It’s a truly amazing read, and I’d really like to narrate it for my channel, if you’d let me do so! I can probably get it out within the next few weeks or so, and of course I’d send you the link as soon as it’s done if you agree.

Arg.naut (talk)Arg_naut

Thread Closure

The thread was closed to keep things from getting any further out of hand. Criticism was successfully levied, after all. I even saw it, as you should know from the fact that I closed the thread. What there isn't a need for is what I foresaw which is things getting wildly out of hand from there.

Was what was said within the realm of reasonability? That's arguable in both directions, but was it also reasonable to make a whole thread telling us there were 11 threads in both M4R and Delete Now combined? That, too, is debatable. We are all, after all, volunteers with our own lives, jobs, etc. and not all of out time is devoted to here.

And, for the record, if that same reply was posted by anyone else it would not be removed, at least not by myself. After ten years of doing this, I am no stranger to criticism...and even some of it justified. I will always encourage open discourse most events. However, the thread in question was quickly spiraling out of control from where I saw it. Empy replied with a bit too much snark, yes, but your subsequent two replies were more inflammatory as you accused him of power pearl-clutching. It is for that reason that the thread was closed.

Kolpik (talk) 16:30, May 15, 2020 (UTC)

Minor Ticks
I've leaked it. All of it. The entire library, every little detail you wanted censoring (censored) over the years. All of the information you tried so hard to stash away, it's all out there for everyone to see. And that's how it's going to stay. Within the hour, there'll be riots in the streets of Nightfall. People will finally know the truth about all these files, all these experiments and psychological programs, all the fucked-up secretive shit you've gotten away with for so long.
As a captain, it was my responsibility to protect my crew. For a while, I blamed myself for what happened that day, but then I realised. (nix that period and shrink that i) It was you. It was always you.
I'm opening the airlocks. And don't worry, I am nearby. I don't want to keep on living after all this. I want to be part of my crew again.
And I want you to realise this (is) all the fault of your own negligence. Your endless corner cutting, budget saving, never spending a penny more than the absolute minimum. It's how you got to where to (you) are now. (Enjoyed the double meaning there) You could make back the cost of the Angelica in a day, if that. If you hadn't been so endlessly stingy, none of this would've happened. But it's too late to do anything about that now.
My Thoughts
Originally, I had two interpretations of the story. Either McKennedy went nuts and imagined his crew was possessed or they really were possessed and he took matters into his own hands. Either way, havoc ensues and I was left to decipher for myself what really happened. After all, outer space is vast and mysterious. Who knows wtf is really out there? What happens in outer space, stays in outer space... hopefully.
I enjoyed your first version, but now you've added a new element, revenge. Is McKennedy's actions against Samuel justified? I don't think it matters, but it's an interesting question. Are his actions due to the errant signal messing up his brain or does he blame Samuel for his crew getting possessed? It's another good question and I like a story that makes me wonder.
Although, I don't think the new ending is necessary, I do like it. However, may I suggest a little tweaking? You see, I have a teeny, tiny issue with Captain McKennedy showing up just as Samuel is about to delete the file. I suppose you could chalk it up to coincidence and leave it at that, but perhaps you could nix that part.
It might be cool if Samuel triggered the events that come next when he chose to delete the file. What if McKennedy programmed a trap before he joined his crew that would deliver his message to Samuel, leak the files, and take the poor bastard out? Eh, it's just a thought. Pay me no mind.
Anyway, I hope this helps. Feel feel to message me if you want to pick my brain a bit more about the story or something else.
On another note, was it you that posted a story in the Writers Workshop a year or two ago involving a kid in a dumpster getting squished? Forgive my fuzzy memory if that wasn't your story. However, if it was, did you ever finish it? If not, do you intend to? I have this idea you might find interesting. What if the dumpster had a Narnia wardobe type set up and dumped the kid into the den (maze-like or otherwise) of some sinister creature that lies in wait for dumpster divers. Um... just a thought.

Banned

I just read your comments on a user's blog and I'm left wondering if, when you read Cleric's blog on users being toxic, harassing other people, and generally instigating, if you didn't take a moment to realize that Ned's behavior which led to him being banned applies to you as well.

This wiki will no longer tolerate people being shitty for no real reason to other users. This type of behavior has been pretty consistent with you in the past. You were warned about this previously. It's a three hour ban. The next time it happens, it will be much longer.

Re: TWGoJH

Hey Cornconic,

So I went through and gave a review of what I thought. Most of what I've pointed out isn't the same things that normally get pointed out when I give a review. You don't have too many spelling errors or punctuation problems. There were a few places where a word or two were omitted, but I didn't mention them, the review took a lot longer than I had expected. With that being said, I didn't give a half-assed review either. Take it with a grain of salt, most of it is just opinion. There's a good chance that you didn't get a review on that story because of the length, which may put people off. I don't know how many of the writer's I've known when I was more active on this site are still around, but those were the people who really helped a lot. With that being said, if you have any more stories you'd like help with, feel free to reach out to me.

Best,

Hello! A long time ago when i first started on this site, i made a conversation post and you had commented that I could read your stories. Well, I finally got around to doing so. I narrated two of them "Wounded" and "Anniversary", and put them in one video.

Hi, Cornconic!

This is Spirit Voices again; you may remember me from narrating your story "Anniversary" back in May! Nice to talk to you again!

I'm doing a Halloween video this year which will be a short story compilation. I know on your last comment on my page you gave me blanket permission to narrate your stories buuuut I always feel uncomfortable without actually asking, so--I was wondering if I could read your story "The Poison Sky" in this video! It's an awesome story and I'd just love to include it. :)

Thank you so much in advance for your consideration (again)!

Re: A Number Of Things

Fixed the poem tag, it seemed to be missing the concluding part of the tag (you can check in the edit history to see what I added).

As for videos: Here's a guide on adding videos. If you'd like to cut out the middle man and get a direct link to uploading videos, you can click this link and add a video using the add a video button in the upper right. From there, it's a matter of just using the text layout as seen here to add your video onto the page itself using the file name the video is uploaded under. Hope that helps. Please let me know if you need any more help. Unfortunately, I'm a bit busy this week so it may take a bit of time to troubleshoot other problems.EmpyrealInvective (talk) 11:42, 13 January 2021 (UTC)

When adding a video here, you should have the option of changing the title here so it doesn't match and replace the original. Looking at your contributions, it appears you are replacing the original and then double posting it to the page. I can look at it later this weekend if you're still having problems with it.

I really enjoyed this. The story and the character voice are spot on, and I honestly never knew what to expect. You successfully took an old style of storytelling and made it fresh. Really nice work on that!

As I say in my subject line, there are only some minor mechanical glitches that need fixing, and you can easily find these with a proofread or, my favorite, sending it through a TTS reader. For instance, one sentence was clearly missing a word. Also, there are some places where your wording could be more economical. One place that sticks out is "we are always in requirement of" which could simply be shortened to "we require." There was at least one more spot like that, so I suggest just giving it a careful read over.

Honestly, other than those things, I'd say it's golden. If I had to suggest anything to bulk up the plot, I'd say maybe give us a clearer sense of what the patient may have thought she was signing up for, but I really didn't miss it. Good stuff overall and good to hear from you!

About My Creepypasta Story

So basically, this is more like a narrative story. No, it's not about a guy ranting about his life, or how evil and edgy he is, this is just him talking about himself, and his own reality and view of life.

Request For Feedback

Okay, I see, I should wait and see what the admins are thinking before I could re-post my story. Although, I was actually inspired by this creepypasta story.

So, could you also check another story of mine and see what can you fix in there?

Hey, a mod on the website tried inviting me to the creepypasta discord but it was a bad link and I couldn't get back in touch. Would you happen to have it?

Hey There!

Hey, Cornconic. It's Icydice. I haven't been active on this Wikia for a while, but I am glad to see some old users still around and kicking. I actually came back to start posting stories again, my latest being: My Family Experienced a Deadly Car Crash

Have you got any stories you would like me to check out? I would love to offer my thoughts on your work.

Hope you're in good health!

Re: PotM Voting

As I mentioned on Icy's talk page, Straw Poll is currently not functioning (i.e. any attempt to make a poll is met with a Parser error). This survey/poll site was the first one I found that didn't require voters to sign in to use it, creators to buy a membership, and allowed for voter regulation. That being said, as it's a new system that is being used on short notice, I wasn't able to fully examine the ins-and-outs of interface. I created a new survey that should limit votes to one per IP and also allows for checking of the poll without requiring a vote.

Poem Formatting

Hey man, thatonedude666 here. First off, I wanted to say I'm sorry for that whole town name debacle, I did not mean to come off as a jerk in that scenario. But that's not the main reason I wanted to talk to you. I've read some your poems, and they are really good but I'm wondering how you got them to be formatted like that. I tried to post my poem earlier, but every time I pasted it from the google doc, it suddenly became single spaced. I was also wondering if you would be interested in narrating my poem once I post it. Again sorry to bother you, I was just hoping you'd be able to help me out.

Categories

Howdy,

Thanks for reaching out to me regarding the category issue, I read what Empyrealinvective linked me and got a much better understanding of the categories, the requirements for an author's category, and access to other relevant information.

I appreciate you contacting me, it wasn't the first time I had issues trying to figure out how to add my work to categories. I kept finding that it was treating the category link as if there was no page, when I would clearly have said category's page open on another tab. I will definitely go back and add the appropriate categories to my stories.

If you do end up giving them a read at any point, let me know. Would love your feedback.

Thanks again for your advice, and reaching out to me.

Re: Contest Blog

I was referring more towards putting the winning post on the front page. I tinkered with the coding to try and set it up, but unfortunately, wiki coding isn't my strong suit so my attempts ended up breaking the formatting of the front page on previews. I'm messaging the other admins to see what they can do. In the meantime, I put your discussion posts in their category and put the admin blog on your blog post. Hopefully we get it sorted out. If not, we may just need to continue promoting it via discussions and ask some of the narrators if they might do a shout-out for signal boosting.

EmpyrealInvective (talk) 18:50, 3 October 2021 (UTC)

HopelessNightOwl figured out how to properly add the blog to the front page. I'll leave it up while the contest is in place to increase visibility. Feel free to let us know if anything else comes up, but just a heads-up, I am going to a friend's wedding in the next couple of days and visiting with a few friends in the area so I will likely be slow to respond for about the next week. Have a good one.

Re: Wiki Contest

Thank you for asking! I'll let you know. :-)

I should note I made one Halloween story years ago, but it was deleted from the website (I'm guessing for being too horrifying ;-))- https://flamintales.fandom.com/wiki/Most_Horrifying_Halloween_Figure . If I decide to participate in this contest, I'll write something more suitable.

Halloween Writing Contest

Thanks for informing me of the contest. I'll try and write something for it depending on how busy I am with work and social obligations.

Re: CrazyWords Contest

Banning won it with his story "Of Beauty and Beasts". I believe he removed the story at a later date (2019 iirc) as he was publishing it. I don't know if that was the reason, but I think that's what happened. There's a link to the winner announcement blog for verification.

EmpyrealInvective (talk) 00:00, 7 October 2021 (UTC)

NVM, different contest. Gimme a bit to look into it.
EmpyrealInvective (talk) 00:01, 7 October 2021 (UTC)
So here's what I managed to dig up/remember. According to the contest: "Thenumber of people moving on will be decided on how good the pastas are, and there will be 3 rounds. I will post if you will be moving on in the comments of your pasta." The contest was meant to be three tiered like a ladder tournament. With the top four (or so) winners moving onto the next bracket and then going to two in a showdown. I think due to the overly complicated nature of the contest and fatigue, CW expressed burnout on chat, somewhere off site, or here and I'm just not seeing it. Unfortunately navigating contributions really doesn't turn up anything concrete and I honestly am too busy to look through every admin and Crazywords contribution, comments, and forum posts to see if an explanation for ending the contest early was given or an official announcement was made in regards to the contest being cancelled. Grim (the leading person in the first round) also made a blog (see in comments of the contest) about burnout and taking a break from writing.
Here's where it switches to memory. I think the contest was abandoned before the second or third ladder matches could begin. That much is apparent by the comments and the talk page messages asking about the topics for the next round. I think CW became an admin on another wiki and went over there for a while and returned after this contest matter had been settled. As they were heading the contest and hadn't assigned topics for the second or third rounds, we couldn't finish the contest properly; it was abandoned and the entrants were categorized without an official winner. If I remember my events correctly, this (in conjunction with the surplus of contests we were getting at that time) caused us to state that contests needed approval and admin involvement to prevent issues of them being left unfinished in the future. That being said, I don't have concrete links to provide, but that's what I can best reason on events from 5 years ago. Sorry I couldn't provide more evidence, but as you mentioned there really isn't much here on examination.

Re: Welcome

Thank you for the welcome and the kind words. I greatly appreciate it.

I gave your story a look over and left a review of it in the comments. Suffice to say I think that it is an excellent piece of short-form horror and I think you are a talented author. I will have to give more of your work a look when I get the time to really appreciate good writing.

Unfortunately while I can sometimes recognize good works and help to suggest changes to maybe not so good works I have real trouble when it comes to taking ideas and putting them to words myself. I am sure that if I put my head to it I could produce something mediocre if not cliche in of itself. For that reason I don't think that I can in good confidence submit anything to your writing contest.

Re: Contest Category

Sorry for the delay, as I mentioned above, I was out-of-state for a wedding up to last night and I've spent a lot of this morning catching up on edits, QS checks, and going over comments/discussion threads. Here is the category for the 2021 Halloween Writing Contest (Halloween 2021). It was made in keeping with the category pages for other contests. Please let me know if you need anything else.

EmpyrealInvective (talk) 19:30, 12 October 2021 (UTC)

No problem. I wish I had more time to be on site, but RL takes precedence and the other admin/bureaucrat can usually pick up the slack during that time. Have a good one.

Unintentional Categories Violation

I sincerely apologize but without thinking I added by the monsters and beings categories to my pasta Generation Freak. I checked the rules and see that they are mutually exclusive but see no way to remove the beings category. I hope that this will not result in any negative consequences in regards to the contest or otherwise.

Gomez Capulet (talk) 18:09, 20 October 2021 (UTC)

Despite being here for years and being pretty serious when it comes to actually writing I am essentially a boomer when it comes to tech. I had assumed categories would be removed in a similar manner to how you can add them by just clicking a button at the bottom of the page without opening editing. I appreciate you informing me as to how I can do this if necessary in the future. Thanks for correcting the mistake.
Gomez Capulet (talk) 18:34, 20 October 2021 (UTC)

Hello again.

Thank you for the heads up. I'm doing abstractly better now; not sure if I have time necessarily for a full blown contest (school, projects and etc), but I'll keep an eye out for other content. Still have to relearn site navigation.

Cheers.

Contest Entry

Good evening, Mr. Cornconic.

I apologize for the tardy entry. I ended up having a bit of a slump with my writing, followed by losing my work. I'm working to finish off my story, and to submit it ASAP.

Thank you for reaching out.

Question about my story

Hey so, I’m the writer of that psychonauts creepypasta and I was just wondering, why did you put my story in the deletion category? Could you remove the warning please? Thank you.

About my story, it isn’t a spin-off. I never meant it to be a spin-off of any kind. It’s its own thing.

Halloween story - submitting soon

I saw your message. I'm just finishing up any last edits and grammar/spelling checks on my story. I'm planning to submit tomorrow night (10/28). I'm on Pacific time though, so it may end up being submitted at the very beginning of 10/29, depending on where you are.

Elle Ravenswood (talk) 02:16, 28 October 2021 (UTC)ExRwood

Is it an issue if I post my story elsewhere before the contest officially ends (ie, a winner is announced 10/31)? I usually put my stories up here as well as on my website and some subreddits. Just wanted to check before I did that. Thanks!

Yes I will definitely be submitting my story on the 29th! I had to restart- didn’t like the first one I wrote. Thank you for checking in :)

Re: Contest

It's likely that I won't be able to complete and post the story in time to enter for the contest.

Fortunately there seem to be enough entries already for the contest to be considered a success in terms of participation.

If I get it done after the contest deadline but before Halloween I'll still comment on the blog, for those curious about what my entry would have been.

There is still a chance that I'll get it done in time for the contest. It has been started.

HopelessNightOwl (talk) 11:48, 28 October 2021 (UTC)

Yep, I know the deadline is tomorrow. Still trying to come up with something worthwhile. If inspiration hits me in the last couple hours, I'll make it happen.

Hello Cornconic! Unfortunately this month ended up being much busier than I anticipated. I made progress on an entry, but I won't be able to complete it in time. I still appreciate you inviting me to join the contest--I had fun writing my entry (even if I didn't finish it) and have enjoyed reading all the stories that have been submitted thus far.

RE: Contest

Hey, thanks for reaching out to me.

I did have some ideas and rough concepts down, but I ended up shifting my focus onto writing for my upcoming game. By the time I was able to release a demo, I didn't have the appropriate time to jump into another project as I needed to keep an eye on user feedback.

Sorry I couldn't make this clear in any posts on the wiki. Hope the best for your contest.
