FINAL DAY TO SIGN UP!

Last chance to join this incredible workshop before registration closes! Don't be late  :D

If you've already signed up, now would be a good time to either find a partner or declare yourself a solo writer. We will be starting this workshop at haste the moment it opens 8:00 AM PST Saturday.

I forgot to mention this before, but if you've already assembled your team, send a PM over to me so I can sort you into your respective group.  :thumbsup:

The Workshop Has Officially Commenced!

Welcome All to the Writer's Marathon Workshop! This time around, the objective is completing a collaborative novella totaling 10,000 to 40,000 words-worth of story within a 10-week time period. There is only one limitation, and that is these stories must be complete! So break out those writing utensils, crack your stiff fingers, and get ready to finish your next Writer's Marathon!

Our goal for the first week is the completion of a rough outline and/or the first 10-percent of your story, as well as the finalization of writing teams and their respective portfolios. If you are one of the "Unassigned" members, you must either become part of a team or declare yourself a solo writer by next Friday..This is so there is no confusion as to who's with who and no one gets arbitrarily left out. Additionally, you will also need to create a portfolio for this workshop at the beginning. Preferably you would want to assign the portfolio management to the more active member of the group. They will be responsible for updating everything within your team as we progress along the weeks. As an incentive to get all this done before the end of the first week, you will be withdrawn from the workshop if this is not completed by the end of next Friday on January 19th, 11:59 PM PST. No pressure  8)

...and that's about it! The rest of the weeks will have no other requirements. Simply have your work in your portfolios and you will be included in the weekly community vote every Friday.

By the way, if you haven't noticed, I've given temporary names to the current writer teams on the Original Post. Now you could opt to keep that name if you wish, but I like to give things a bit of flair  ;) If you wish to have a team name to go by, either PM or post here and I will update the list accordingly  ;D

Lastly, if you wish to engage with any of our members or former members of the Writer's Marathon, click on the Discord link here or at the Original Post.

Good Luck Writers!

Two days remain before the first vote commences! If you haven't started your portfolio yet, please do so before the end of Friday. :o Otherwise we have no way of including you within the Community Vote!

If by then none of the requirements are met, we will have to assume you have left the workshop, so do try to be timely  8)

Yet courage can only take a person so far, as the pillars of Guardian city are not so easily shaken.  Many have tried before her, and Guardian City continues to grow from the sacrifices of the good.

Today's the last day to post your stories before the workshop's First Community Vote is to be held! If you haven't done so already, you have until 11:59 PM PST Today to get it in before the vote.

Please note that if you are one of the participants that have received a PM notifying you of your status, if you have not PM'd me about your status by the time above, you will be considered inactive and will be dropped from the workshop accordingly. This is the one and only time we will be checking this, so do not delay!

Good luck fellow writers  8)

90 Days to Kill my Master
Spoiler
That title alone is almost enough to win my vote! And especially this gem of a line:

"Bye harem" I whispered to myself as I let out a lonely tear

You know JoJo's Bizzare Adventure? I get that kind of vibe from it. This scenario is so wacky and the dialogue is pretty funny at times. It feels like this is going to be quite an adventure.

Your English has improved since the Short Story Competition half a year ago, just keep taking it one step at a time  :thumbsup: You've got some interesting stuff going on here

*poses internally*

Zsssssst!
Spoiler
I wonder what your thought process was for that title!

"Always knew mom was a badass inter dimensional pirate"

And that line!

This is definitely a stand out from your usual work, so there are more surprises for me in regards to the story's content. I get the feeling it's gonna be one of those stories where character chemistry takes the spotlight.

I would say that it would have been handy for a bit of character description in the beginning, since I couldn't tell the golem was a robot (I thought it was a stone golem) until its head came off.

Otherwise, I can't wait to see what comes up next!

*belches* S-science words morty. They're *belches* they have their own rules in fiction *Urrrrp*
