SGI Short Workshop 2.1

21 Jul 2005 16:03 #1829 by lfan
SGI Short Workshop 2.1 was created by lfan
Sorry guys, sleeping at the wheel.....for the short story topic, I'm gonna choose "PO'ed Superwoman gets back at her Ex" (in honor of Ms Thurman being cast in Super Ex)

Kind of a variation on a couple of great suggestions. Mark, I think the Oh No III visuals near the end inspired this topic, so go to town.

Guidelines: Story has to be 1000 words or less and on-topic. That it.....

OK, get to work!

Well, Larafan, how about it?

I like both topics.

Hmmmm. What guy would dare be an "ex" to an ubergirl? Or was she uber before she was "ex"? And is she a good "uber" or an evil one?

And, most importantly, just how big are her breasts?

Does the "ex" have to be from a long term relationship? Can the "ex" be an "ex" after a few dates? :?

Speaking only for myself, I would say any ex will do.

Okay I understand the ironic side of that sentence, but nevertheless, I want to write a story which is all about that thing, and I just hope that it will turn out good!

Ok, I thought about it. I came up with my idea. I started writing. And I'm already finding the 1000 word limitation to be too limiting. Can I suggest increasing it a bit? Perhaps 2000 or 2500?

No opinions on the 1000 word limit? I really do think it's too limiting. Seeing as how I'm already at 550 words, and I know that I still have a lot to write, I think even a 2000 word limit might be tough for me. I've pretty much already decided to ignore the word limit and just write my story, and if it turns out to be too long than this story just won't be submitted to the workshop.

On another note regarding the short story workshop, I'm laying claim to the title "A Superwoman Scorned" now. The rest of you can fight for the right to the title "Hell Hath No Fury". ;)

I think it should be binding - max. 1000 words. Isn't that the point of keepinig the "short" workshops separate from the "long" ones?

But the final say on the matter has to be Lfan's...

I wasn't saying to eliminate the word limit altogether, just to make it longer. My suggestion was to raise the limit to 2000 or 2500 words. That way, it's less restrictive. After all, the point is to get people to write more stories, and coming up with restrictions that make it too hard on the writers could undermine that.

In this case specifically, my story is already over 1000 words, and I'm only about halfway done. I'm sure I could keep it under 2000, but limiting it to 1000 would seriously cut into the content.

How are you folks doing with the short topic? I've got a draft written, tentatively called "The Pick-Up."

Other than doing the plot, the fun part is making it fit. Thanks to Bill Gates for the word count feature.

Actually, the short one is going fine! 1000 words will be tough, but a challenge is good. I'm hoping to give some of you some chills... :twisted:

Can the girl be dumped, and then later become an ubergirl & seek revenge, or is the theme that an ubergirl gets dumped...?

I think I can do under 1000 words if I can start the girl out w/o powers.

(You'd have to be crazy, or think you could get away, or be an uber-guy to dump an ubergirl, IMO)

As long as it has an ubergirl in it, I think the author has carte blanche.....as for the word limit, let's try to enforce the 1000 word limit -- that's what makes the challenge.

If you have to go over, but all means it can go up in the storybank --- def will not be discarded!

Sorry, I'm out -- unless inspiration strikes in the next few days.

My "ubergirl vs weapon" story is coming along nicely, however -- it should be in on time and under budget.

My story is done, but it's over 1800 words. I tried trimming it down by playing with the wording and removing some minor content, but I realized I couldn't get it below 1300-1400 words without cutting down the good parts, and I'm unwilling to do that. I figure I'll sit out the workshop, then submit my story to the archive after the voting is over.
