    Support and Whereabouts?

    Hey, guys! I know its been a minute since I blogged, but unlike what ChappedPenguinLips believes, I am still on this site reading and I have been working on a story slowly that I wont reveal any details right now about but hopefully I can get it released in the next few months. Writing has been harder for me because aside from work brutal enough. I have started streaming pretty frequently for 2

    Marathon!

    I’ve been pretty behind on the show for quite a while. Watched the first few episodes of season 6 and then never continued. Not by choice I just got lazy since I don’t have cable and can’t record it but now that they put season 7 on Netflix I was planning on binging to catch up...

    Fortnite with a Mod and Scrub

    Whats better than playing Fortnite with ChappedPenguinLips?

    Playing with Chapped and with Night Spark.

    Night Spark is really bad. I'm still getting used to the game on PS4 so I'm not much better. But still...

Well crap. · 5:29am Mar 5th, 2014

So with my EFNW story I slightly went over the 3000 word limit for the contest... I asked the EFNW account if this would be a bad thing and well... he/she told me to see if I can reduce some of what I've got to shorten it up :fluttershysad:

I'm conflicted on what to do. I could risk it and see if they will still take the story even though it is slightly over the word count, or I can go in and delete some stuff to make it fit.... but from what I've got so far I'm getting nice comments and reviews on it... what should I do? :applejackunsure: If I delete some stuff I might delete something important and not even realize it! Man, this sucks.

*Muffled*
I have no idea what to do.

Delete the authors notes (those count toward word total I believe) and remove any extra verbage or descriptions. that should do it

1897502 Ah! I did not know that!! Let me give it a try! :pinkiehappy:

1897502 Unfortunately, the authors not does note affect the word count:fluttershysad:

I messaged the EFNW account to see if he'd make an exception, and if not what is the word count I'm allowed to have if I go over 3000... Hopefully I get a chance, otherwise I'll have to delete a lot of my story :unsuresweetie:

1897515 I've been living a lie! (that's why I've never posted more than a few words in the notes)

Well, it's a tough call, but I should probably stop giving useless advice now. :fluttercry:

1897546 No I appreciate your advice!

I guess I can either take the risk... or change things. :applejackunsure:

I think what I'll do is change some things around, but save the story the way it is first. Then after the contest is over I'll return the story to the way it was...

:fluttercry: This sucks

1897558 just make sure the message of your story isn't lost. that's what the judgs care about most :twilightsmile:

1897675 This is true... Thanks a lot my friend:twilightsmile:

That's kinda why I tried to stop mine right at 3,000 :twilightblush:

Did they specifically tell you it was too long?

1898023 no, he just gave me the kung fu like "do what you can and it shall be fine" type thing that scares me...

1898337 But they pointed it out? :derpyderp2:

1898529 No I mentioned it :facehoof:

1898536 Yikes, that's pretty vague... :rainbowderp:

1898553 I'm scared man...

Maybe I shouldn't have said anything and they wouldn't have noticed? Lol...

I took a lot out of my story already... Maybe that will be ok... Dangit I should've been more conscious about the word count!

1898623 I thought you told me before it didn't matter. Right before we submitted? :derpyderp2:

1898670 Yeah cause they had said it's cool if you go over a bit cause of Fimfic's terrible word counter but I was nervous cause I went over quite a bit... And he was like "uh yeah delete some" lol. I hope it's ok now :applejackunsure:

1898893 It looks like it's a lot shorter now :rainbowhuh:

1898898 yeah I shaved off about 100 words... I got rid of some excess detail and stuff which sucks cause I liked it but it's ok. It's still not where he said I should have it however, so I'm gonna work on that in a bit. I think it'll be ok now, but yesterday? I was flipping out:rainbowlaugh:

1898919 I probably would have too. :fluttershysad:

1898926 I don't know if removing stuff hurt my chances... But we'll see :fluttershysad:

1898932 Wait a minute... it had to be a google document?

1898965 it could've, but didn't have to be!

1898972 Then how come they only listed the entries that had google documents?

1898975 Hm.... That is odd.

I messaged the Everfree account with my name and story title and got a reply saying that my story has been entered! I wouldn't worry about that.

1899014 Well, I got the same. :rainbowkiss:

1899021 Then we shall win! Er- I mean do good! lol
