Have you read a fantasy novel written in the last twenty years?

The entire genre has given up on books having endings. They just kinda stop, now.

It's magical realism set in post-WW2 Europe.

Does that count?

Stephanie Meyer doesn't even write, she just shits out her fetishes and fantasies on paper. It doesn't count as writing.

NaNoWriMo is coming

I have four potential stories coming up, two of which I was considering running as quests instead.

Do quests and other cooperative storytelling experiences count for NaNoWriMo?
I've been in quests with word counts longer that Wheel of Time so...

As writing? Certainly.

Most quests couldn't count as novels without serious editing, but it all depends on the writing style.

They do. Funny thing really, total amateurs writing for free do a better job of things like characterization and such than that dumb bitch ever could. Wouldn't really work as a novel given the structure and how often the mood rises and falls to keep things interesting session to session rather than a fully planned plotline, but it still counts.

So do traditional games in general. The GM is essentially the author with the PCs being his main characters. The only real difference is that he has no control over them. The players are those main characters and can do whatever the hell they damn well please. They do things and it's the GM's job to write the fallout. Part of what makes it interesting, it's writing by a whole group. Collective storytelling, such a wonderful concept. I wonder why it didn't happen in a big way until modern times. Somebody had to have the idea to try something like that before Gygax, they just didn't write it down.

I secretly run games with its lore too, but I always end up hating what I make and never believe people actually like it. Anyone else suffer from this?

Every day you don't work on art is another day you're worse than every post modernist asshole gallery creator.

Every day you don't write a computer program is a day you're worse than fetish animu "visual novel" programers.

Every day you don't make obscene amounts of money is another day you're worse than Chick fil a Owner.

Every day you don't convert people to your religion is a another day you're worse than Scientology.

Every day you don't create an rpg is another day you're worse than F.A.T.A.L.

Every day you don't sue a person over IP infringement is another day you're worse than Game Workshops.

Nigger, if people genuinely like it, it means that what you've written is good.
Period.
End of story (huehuehue).
Keep writing.

Although, next time, try to write something you enjoy. I know what you're going through.

IP is bullshit. It's like saying I can "steal" the number 2. Makes no sense. Besides, the real OP will be discovered no matter what ya do, so it's best just to admit who you're cribbing your shit from. Less embarrassment and infamy overall that way.

Literally every person who creates something ever.
You always hate your own shit because all you can see is your own flaws and mistakes. If your friends genuinely seem to enjoy it (and they'd have to, to get through 300+pages) then that's what you look at.

Oh gods, I know that feeling. I straight up refuse to show my friends and family what I write because roughly half of me is utterly convinced they're saying nice things to make me feel better. Hell, anytime someone says /anything/ nice about my writing I think they're bullshitting.

Bonus points for taking criticism far too easily to heart, and occasionally destroying my work trying to fit it too well to the little criticism I do get.

I like it. You could get some really cool stuff going, with certain characters and events being referenced throughout all/some stories. What sort of setting though?

Intellectual Property is bullshit?

So I assume you don't want to be able to protect your creative works and feel enjoyment as someone else takes your stuff wholesale and sells it under a different name, calling themselves the creator.

Sure some people (most big corporations) abuse the law, but it's not stupid.

I thought about a collection of short stories sharing a setting, but that requires people to agree on a setting.

>What sort of setting though?

What about different stories in a modern fantasy city? A bit like "Tales of Ba Sing Se" from Avatar?

Or maybe something sci-fi?

Now I wonder if /tg/ could write pulp
