  1. Sorry for the delay with this one. I've had an essay. Anyway, hope you enjoy! Lazarus-ChapterTwo.pdf
  2. And now for the next, where slowly we come to know the characters a little better. Lazarus-ChapterOne (2).pdf
  3. Greetings all, and welcome to Lazarus. Regards, Devious_T Lazarus-Prologue.pdf
  4. "You went down guns blazing in an uneven fight?" she asked, leaning in. "Sure did." he replied, with a smile, "Barely felt a thing."
  5. Thank you! And shortly, yes ... hopefully aha. Fairly busy atm but can always find a little time for writing
  6. Hi all, Been pretty busy recently with uni and stuff, but this is something I've been writing alongside 'The Young Ones' and my novel. Just the beginnings of things here, but I know roughly where its going. Its a bit more like my 'Left Behind' piece. Hope you enjoy, and as always feedback is encouraged and appreciated.

  7. Wow, an honour to be a winner! Thank you, really; this is the first time my writing has done anything for me . Congratulations to the well-deserving Aetherios and Temerian, and to all who submitted a piece; I enjoyed reading every one. Also I think I can speak for everyone in saying that this was a fantastic contest, and that it shows the whole dev-team's commitment to us and this game. So thank you Novaquark, you show the rest of them how its done. To many more wonderful stories in the future! DT
  8. Sorry to not add anything to the actual thread, but I think this would be better placed in the 'Agora' section. That aside this looks interesting, and I hope you and others keep expanding on it!
  9. A very deserving piece of writing! For me it was your humour that earned my vote. I hope to see more of your writing in the future. DT
  10. Thanks Lethys! I thought that the often under-represented children would be interesting too. Glad you enjoyed! DT
  11. Thanks for you feedback! In regards to guardians and so on, the story will indeed get into that - and why they are so independent - fairly shortly. Also, with the names, I know they are strange but I basically used them as a heavy-handed approach to creating the individual characters/illustrate some of the themes of the piece. I wanted them to be almost obtusely illustrative of some of the issues about memory loss and so on. Thank you again for reading it, and for writing some thoughts! DT
  12. Does anyone have some comments about the actual piece?
  13. Hey all, This is something I've come up with over the last few days. It's a little different, and as you will soon realise the language is tailored towards the perspective of children (or at least, the perspective I want for these children). I just thought I would try out some different techniques. I'll keep this going over the next few weeks I think, until it comes to a good conclusion. Feedback, as always, is most welcome. Hope you enjoy, DT TheYoungOnes.pdf
  14. Hi there! You can join through the 'Community Portal' (a different website thingy...), just click 'Organisations', search Writer's Guild, and then send an application. It doesn't stop you from joining another Org at all! Go mad! Regards, DT
  15. I think what they were trying to say was that the 'Famous Writer' title would stand separate for the community award; not that the person couldn't win both a prize and the community award.
  16. A good read! The concept of stowaways is great, and I couldn't help but think that the wife might have set up her husband's pod to wake him up early so he could register her and their son ????. Anyway, I really liked some of the interesting imagery you used, and look forward to reading anything else you might write. Good luck! DT
  17. It was certainly action-packed! I liked the whole 'good-guy outlaw' kind of feel you had to the cast; if you have read the Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson that's the kind of thing I'm talking about. Good luck! DT
  18. Hey Velenka! I really liked the interplay you had between the two AI in this piece - the whole 'this is for their own good' theme. Definitely an interesting thing to explore! Good luck! DT
  19. One day I want a mod to post, then close the thread. That would make my week.
  20. Hi all, Got our first member (YAY ), and I'd thought I'd clear up something that people might be worried about. The Writer's Guild is not strictly an 'org' - we have no politics, nor do I care what other orgs you are a part of. Join regardless of who, if anyone, you are otherwise affiliated with; I'm not biased against anyone, or any group. So don't be shy! DT
  21. Sure thing mate, no worries. I'll start forming some thoughts now. Also, don't see them as 'flaws' or 'mistakes', just places to develop; we all have them.
  22. That was some decent and engaging writing, and I only just hopped in with this one! Keep it up! (P.S. if you would like me to offer feedback on this piece or any other I'm happy to message you)
