What....? Fro was assumed to be dead one time? When did this happen?

Oh god I forgot about that... someone made me a god damn audio submission mourning my death at one point.


Hey, @ForNoReason did you once send me something in the mail one time? For some reason I'm thinking of some sort of action figure or something that I won from you. Could be someone else though.

Wow epic....! Sorry Fro, it should have been disturbing. But if it was a friend, that's a cool way to prank someone.

I forget exactly the scenario, but I had left my laptop open and a bunch of tabs open back in college. 2008 or 2009 or something like that. My roommate made a whole punch of random facebook posts and did little pranks such as faking my death and posting about it on a newspost on my newgrounds account. I was on a spring break and they had stayed back at the college where I had went home for break.

Yeah that's it. I'm pretty sure that I got rid of it recently when I moved. I had that along with a bunch of other newgrounds figurines that I bought, but they got crushed one day. (I had everything in the original package) So whatever wasn't broken I gave to my daughter to play with and whatever broke I tossed in the garbage.


My poor knights, tankman, and penicorn. :(

Penicorn, what a blast from the past :D


So, any plans on the art competition?

Very soon, sorry I've been backed up, but I'm working on it!

I found writing scripts a bit different from writing stories. Like it took too long to make a point. As you have to make the characters actually act out the scenes.

How did you guys feel?


I found myself imagining how the animation would work; what it would look like etc as I went along. I found myself creating a story that could be animated reasonably easily, as if I were planning to animate it. Regardless of whether I win, I would LOVE to see mine animated. The idea of the loong morphing into an actual loong, etc ; the idea of making an actual animated character out of the chinese written character appeals to me. I wish I had the skills and the time and I WOULD do it myself!

That is just awesome I would say. You know why, because thats the basic criteria the stories for this topic should satisfy. I did not stop to think much about that, as I was just so stuck with getting the story out in a script format and completely missed it 😅. Thanks for sharing IceDragon64.

Been script writing for a while, but I get the instinct of just feeling like writing out a description of the scene instead of going through the scene bit by bit. What I find helpful is to break down the writing process into a couple of steps. I start off with just free associating stuff to figure out which story I want to tell, after I figure out the general beats of the narrative then I write out the story in the "Main character does this and everyone reacts this way" fashion, occasionally taking notes on small details I'd like to have in the scene.

After I have the skeleton I write a Dogshit draft, something that no one will ever see, something that I probably won't reread, just something to get a test run through the narrative. Scenes drag on for too long, strong emotional beats flop, but after the DS draft is finished I at least have something to criticise with a handful of new ideas popping up during writing.

After the DS draft I take a quick stab at another project to clear my head and after a week or two I rewrite the whole thing from scratch keeping the stuff that I remember liking and changing the stuff that didn't work. Then rewrite, rewrite, rewrite.


I reckon there's a bit less leeway on thematic focus when it comes to scripts. With prose you can write a weak story, but if your ideas are strong, if you provoke the reader into thinking about stuff, then people will still read it. Scripts need a narrative through-line to keep the audience going.


Was a blast making something for this contest! Writing with a concrete timeline but without too much pressure is my go to path to actually getting stuff written :'D
