So don’t yell at me. I know I’m terrible at updating, and I know I’m a bold-faced liar, and I know I procrastinate like the seven deadly sins will save my life, but at least I’m a nice girl, right? Right?
That aside, iiiiiit’s… input time! What I have is a bunch of names that make good titles but have only an inkling of a story attached to them, and what I want are ideas that will make good short stories for them. When I say short, I mean short. Not Short, as in our estimable LEP officer, but short. As in ONE CHAPTER. That way there’s no need to update. Here are all the names, any or all of which you should feel free to suggest anything at all for:
Enterprising Young Men (Arty and Butler on a wild adventure?)
From Under the Oak Tree (Fall Out Boy theme?)
I, Mulch (Based loosely on the Star Trek: TOS episode “I, Mudd”?)
Feel free to veto anything, support or expound on anything, suggest a totally different idea for a title or give me some completely unrelated thing you think I should write. Again, try to keep the ideas short, because I’ve literally never finished anything (other than a project from camp) over a couple thousand words. The need to write more than one chapter is a complete turn-off for me.
I’ve also gotten bored of my username and am thinking of changing it to something related to “that lofty sense of enterprise”, which is part of a Captain Kirk quote that I really like. Just to give everyone a heads-up.
Last but not least, I’d love it if you’d go check out the sample (or the actual story, once it’s up) that my friend Zak has posted, because he’s the exact opposite of me and will update unless the bleeding world is ending, and because the story looks like it’s going to be really good. You may have to go back in the anouncements a bit (for the sample), but it’s nigh on impossible to miss. His penname is in BULGARIAN.
Comment, folks. It will cause me to feel unjustifiably affectionate towards you for some short period of time following.
