    I've already begun to figure out my setting and plot. This is way exciting.

    I have an old sci-fi writing, it's actually a screenplay, and it's also been adapted into a major motion picture film, can I still use it?

    Aedeos, want to proofread each others then? Mine is called 'The Happening' and I wrote the lead parts for Mark Whalberg, but I guess you could substitute any of the Whalbergs and it would still work.

    I might actually try this. I won't be able to start writing until about a week before the end, but I wanna see how well I can develop preexisting ideas I've came up with. Never tried writing before outside of high school so it will be interesting.

    i literally can't think of shit. ive never bothered with reading too much science fiction, so this is definitely a struggle.

    I'm curious to see what's produced. I have an idea that I'm working on, but I don't think EF will vote for it. So I have to decide whether I want to go for the win, or to go for a story I really want to write.

    Tough call. Your artistic integrity or $25 worth of stuff you don't actually need.

    I'll be expecting the winning submission, Mr. Aedeos.

    fuck the win Matt, write the story you want.

    I personally tried to come up with multiple different concepts, one of which I had attempted to write for the last contest but didn't like enough and scrapped altogether...

    Well instead of picking one I figured out what I liked best about these separate ideas and combined them. I knew it was the right decision when I went from a mostly blank word file and no ideas flowing to an ever-growing word file and a mind rushing through ideas so fast I had to get back up from lying in bed to write down some gold.

    Suffice to say, I'm excited. I'm also about to take a week vacation starting tomorrow, I plan to take everything I've figured out so far with me and take the opportunity to flesh things out. I'm going to figure out as much back story as I can on the important characters, so that I have more insight into their personality when I write dialog. I've never really put this much thought into a story before, so I'm pretty excited to see how things turn out.

    And provided that the heavy hitters itt don't flake and submit something, I'm also highly anticipating the other entries.

    I think I'm going to go for it, haven't written anything but song lyrics since high school. I'm curious to see how well I can write a short story these days. Time to open the "ideas" file.
    It's just balloons...!

    how is this going to be judged?

    Like this is a great idea and all but I don't understand the judging process.

    Especially if there's a cash money prize involved.

    oh voting.

    Fuck that kraven.

    people that don't even read will just vote for who they're favourite member is. If were going to put time and effort into this I rather not waste it on a bunch of people who won't even read my story then vote for matt because everyone wants to suck his dick.

    If anything the ef populous should vote for a panel of judges; let's say five judges then they're the ones that choose the winners.
