Winners And Losers

Today is going to be a round up post, but it's also the results of the giveaway! The winners will be the person who wins, and the losers are...you guys! Because you have to read this crap. I'm only kidding there though. You guys aren't losers. I love you all. In case you're wondering why I'm so happy it's because the winner of the contest was something I could actually write. I know that does put most of you out of the running though. So, there. Okay I think I'll do the results first. Overall there were eighteen entrants into this thing, and you were given a number assigned on the order that you posted your comment with the story idea. So even though Generally Disgruntled commented early, his story didn't come until later, and so he had a late number. Here is a rundown of all the entrants.

I want a story about someone that writes a self help book to get people off being addicted to self help books /swoon +following

Modern zombie story.....


3.BerserculesJan 12, 2012 05:03 AM
A homoerotic story about a man and a mushroom (who is also a man) that takes place in a secluded beach and features another character who is a italian war hero!

How about…a person (girl or boy) who grows up without their parent, and then their parent gets back in touch? The confusion of having a parent who never played a big part in your life try to start an instant relationship with you. I reckon that'd be interesting. Seen through the eyes of the kid perhaps.

A story about a storyteller who doesn´t know that he is a storyteller and is normally a wrestler which is making money with Cocain :D

or a zombie story, that would be cool too ;)

Dude, Mark, there's reply buttons now, at least use them ;D

I want you to write a story about an alternate Sburb session. Guess you can't do that without reading Homestuck first ::::D

Reply buttons? Wow, about time, amirite?
Also, idea for a story: a man and his deaf lover, who speaks only through interpretive dance, find a magic, speaking taco capable of time travel. It takes them back to the 16th century where they discover love, art, and the works of Leonardo Di Vinci, but when our heroes get hungry and eat the annoying, time traveling taco, they find themselves wondering... will they ever make it back?
You're welcome. I've never wanted to win a contest so much in my life.

How about a story of a man who starts a blog and becomes obsessed with the first bloghe ever visits...oh wait! That's my story!

You know, in light of it being 2012 and the world is to end this year, write about all the chaos that is leading up to our final doom!
9.ReillyJan 12, 2012 08:08 AM
 Doctor Who Storyline :D
Or you could just write about how you ate the time traveling taco! Seems off the wall and could be funny


10.HazelJan 12, 2012 08:54 AM
I wasn't too keen on the reply button at first, but I think it's slowly growing on me though.

Story Idea 1: Seeing as you hate Twilight so much, rewrite it making it better :P

Story Idea 2: Expand one of your own dreams into a story - if dreams spawned Twilight and Harry Potter, who knows what you might create!

You can write one of these, both of these or neither.

And you can stick me down as an interview candidate too. Do I interview or you interview me? I'm cool with either.


11. Jimmy FungusJan 12, 2012 09:43 AM
Well how about a story in which a zombie is in love with a vampire.

12.GJan 12, 2012 04:18 PM
How about a satirical story where there is a zombie/vampire/illuminati/Inuit plot to reverse global warming and plunge the world into another ice age


13.  kbbuddingwriterJan 12, 2012 04:28 PM
Try describing 5 minutes of being alone, like sitting on a beach, or just chilling in a playground with kids playing and other kids fighting. I tried it once and it did wonders for me.


14.ShockgrubzJan 12, 2012 06:58 PM
Since a few of those stories were once real dreams, I was thinking maybe a story where there are multiple levels of dreams/visions where each level increasingly gets more interesting and exiting. They could overlap and culminate in the ultimate learned lesson for the character/characters.

Just an idea that I got from one of the dreams my brother had recalled to me.

I commend you for sticking to your writing. To have a giveaway with your writing as a prize, I had to get an entry in.


15.Generally DisgruntledJan 12, 2012 07:07 PM
Alright, Red Leader, you ready?

The stories about an American who flees the bigotry of his family and his friends after coming out as a homosexual. He ends up living as an expatriate in (Country of your choice), but hides who he is because of the recriminations of his past and his own fear of rejection by those who he is close to, despite keeping a relatively solitary existence. He questions whether he made the right decision in being true to himself, or should have forsaken his own happiness to remain close to the people he cares about. Here's the kicker: It's written from the point of view of a local girl who serves him in a cafe and her speculation about him based on a letter to his father he accidentally left on the table.

Flex those writin' muscles, son!
16.Mad Mike BrewingJan 12, 2012 09:03 PM
I would like to hear a story about how you would spend/invest 20 million in 4 days...


17. normal.is.overrated.Jan 12, 2012 10:02 PM
to be honest I can't think of anything right now..hmm let me think...hmm how about a superhero who actually doesn't like being a superhero/saving people cause he doesn't like the people in town? LOL LAME!! forget that:PPP


18. ShawJan 12, 2012 11:22 PM
Write a story about Funkasaurus Brodus Clay from Planet Funk visiting earth for the first time.

 The winner was unlucky number 13 Kbbuddingwriter. The post will go up this Thursday, and I recommend tissues and razor blades. I doubt this will be the only time I do this kind of thing either so there will be other chances. Though I did love most of the ideas and will probably do them at some point. This was another problem I had with a giveaway really, restraining myself from doing everything.

The lucky runners up who have a guest post are 

Shaw
Angry Lurker
Pytr0nix
Hazel
Jimmy Fungus

Should you wish one, let's chat on the comments, and if you don't (or don't claim it) then someone else can have your post.

This has lasted long enough (who thought I would ever say that?), so I think I'll forgo the round up. Maybe I can do it tomorrow and do even less with my week than planned.

  1. Ooooooo! I'm so happy I found this. I've got some reading to do. 8D

  7. Some of these are pretty amazing and just quirky enough to work well for today's reader. Like PytrOnix idea about a storyteller.... It sounds out there, but it so interesting, it might work.

    1. I explained the new look yesterday :) I wanted the fancy little button next to my name, so I planned to reset the design to total default and undo all the code changes I had made. I accidentally picked the wrong design, but I found myself liking it so kept it. I think you would have better success with that story than me.

  12. You have all sorts of great ideas it looks like... Congrats to the winners.... and as for the losers... how bout you all write one sentence on how you will have better ideas next time.... over and over! like this..

    1. Well you can take three things away from this.

      1. You still get to tell me how my writing sucks and I have to listen.

      2. It was an awesome idea and I'll probably still do it one time.

      3. You can do it yourself.

  26. Gratz to all the winners. Loved all the stories. The Beer for the Shower story had me on pins and taco shells, for some reason. I loved the zombie ideas as well.

    A zombie farmer who's gone vegan figures out that if he eats carrots and rhubarb, he'll get his mind back. He gets it so back he starts slipping veggies in each of the local zombies meals. They gain sentience a bit slower than the farmer, who has also found a way to grow brains from the soil.....

    sorry 'bout that. All this creative energy around here caught right up with me

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hmmm it could work but I don't see why he would want to grow brains after he already had his sentience back, and now a lot of other zombies do too.
