They’re happy to see you, but they’re acting suspicious. Why? Are they up to something and are planning to frame you? Or are they just nervous about trying to rekindle your relationship?

Open Novella 2

It’s time again for the Open Novella Contest, an event on Wattpad. The Open Novella Contest (or ONC) is like National Novel Writing Month; but instead of 50,000 words in one month, the ONC is 20,000 words in three months.

Participants choose a prompt provided by the ONC account and begin writing their story. The prompts are supposed to be the foundation of the story, but the contestants are free to alter them as they need to–the judges just need to somewhat recognize the original prompt.

The contest is divided into three milestones/goals: 2,000 words, 8,000 words, and finally 20,000. The contestants to make it to 2,000 will be judged and a list made of those who can continue to the next round. The process repeats for the second and third goals, at which time a grand champion will be picked.

If you want to know more, check out the ONC book.

Here are a couple contestant stories to get you started.

Film Theory: Can You Speak Groot: Find out what makes a language a language. Can only saying “I am Groot” be considered a language?

Mythlands: Mythical Origins by @JasonGreenfield: A story that brings together all the myths and legends throughout time. Every myth and legend lives together in the mysterious Mythlands. They work, play, and try to solve the mystery of how they got there.

Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu (or Eevee): While Blitzwinger only did the Pikachu version, it’s probably about the same for Eevee. I thought it was nice to return to a somewhat semi-Pokemon Yellow game and see it in more than 8 bits. I also enjoyed the surprise return of some old characters (and I’m not talking about Brock or Misty).

Recommended No. 3

Hermitcraft 6: Episode 31-POULTRY MAN RETURNS: A great intro created by Grian which teases a return of the Poultry Man character. Followed by more building and shenanigans.

Flawsome by @SerendipityD: An interesting story told from the perspective of someone suffering from a mental illness. The reader gets an inside look at how someone with mental illness can feel and think.

Sypro Reignited Trilogy: From what I’ve seen of the Blitzwinger walkthrough, the game looks like a fun and not too challenging game. It seems to be an ideal game for causal gamers or those who played the original Sypro games and wish to play again.
