Pod and Planet FIction Contest YC117

Telegraph Sam has returned for another fiction contest. It has just started and ends November 19th, 2015. Go check out the rules!

For those that ask, this is a legitimate contest. I've entered each year and plan to do so again. Or, at least I will after Vegas. I have three stories that have been bopping around in my head and hopefully I'll be able to produce them all.

As always, just give it a try. Don't spend a month fretting and wondering if you should or can. Just try it. There are multiple categories so you can write anything from lore to an amusing anecdote about one of your favorite moments in Eve.

I like this contest because it pushes me out of my comfort zone with my creative writing. I don't think that it is my strength to write Eve fiction. It is a struggle to stay inside of someone else's rules and story. However, that struggle I believe improves me over all. I may never have won a grand prize but I do think that I've been improving each year.

This contest has taught me a lot about how Eve's story and its players don't sync up. It is something that has importance. We live within the game world but we are detached from it as well. With the new work that has gone into the game's story and breathing life back into it I hope to see that particular hurdle lowered.

But for now, time to write. I'm going to put some time and energy into this so no promises about my general activity for the next month.
