I'm on a quest to bring a locally used forgotten weapon back under the attention of people. How? I'll write a story about it.

Hello everyone. I'm Dutch, a mother of a 2-year old boy and I love both rp-ing and writing. I'm older than what my username might suggest, but it's an alias I've used for quite some time and I like, so yeah XD

I started with writing Dutch stories in 2002, I was already 19 at that time. I joined a writing competition and that got me started. Soon I started to write down all the stories my over-active imagination came up with. I had my first forum rp experience in 2003 on a Dutch fantasy forum. While I continued to write, I stopped rp-ing when the particular rp and forum slowly died. In 2011 my love for rp's rekindled when I joined a site with a forum and I started to RP solely in English since that is the language of the site. This is also when I wrote my first story in English.

I've got a few 1x1 rp's going on this site and a couple more an another site. And I love the writing competitions here, I try to join them whenever I can.

I have a bachelor degree in nutrition and dietetics and I have worked as a dietitian / kitchen administrator in a nursing home until I decided to quit to become a full-time mother + writer.

When you come here to check if I'm online, know that even when I show as online I might not be able to respond to PM's or RP's. I open this site so that when I have time I can spend some time here, but I don't always end up with the time to do so.

I recently created a female pirate character in the character creation competition on this site and I would like to use her, so I'm interested in the Proposition plot. I don't have realistic images or realistic drawn images of my character though, she exists in text only. But I do have an extended character form ready with her personal history.
And she is the cook of the ship, who joins the land party when they go out acquiring valuables.
My character won't speak like a pirate as you see in the movies, as I'm not quite familiar with that way of speaking.

I too write in third person, past tense and multiple paragraphs, usually 2-3. I do have to warn you about my posting habits, I usually can't do daily replies. I come online daily, but I don't always have the time to actually post. My replies are sometimes weekly, but never longer than that.
I'm surprised to see there is only one other entry, aside from my own.

Anyway, I am planning to use my new character in a rp or story somehow. It would be a shame to create a character and then never use her.
Hm, I don't have a pirate in my collection of OC's yet. Maybe I should give this a try :)

Edit: my character has been created.
Thanks, now I need a pirate RP to use this character in XD
@Frizan, you didn't vote. I don't know if you did for other contests, but if you usually don't then you could act as a tie-breaker when it's needed.
My feedback is usually based on the story as a whole and the experience of me as the reader, but if I do notice grammar mistakes I will share them.
I have to say it's not easy to give a vote. There were things I liked in all entries and there were things I didn't like.

With the feedback out of the way, it is time to vote

And finally @Bishop

<Snipped quote by Calle>

You cannot technically vote if you are part of the competition. Just letting you know.

The first post of the voting and critique thread states "Those that have entered this contest are absolutely allowed to critique each others' works, contestants can absolutely vote, though not for their own, obviously."

@BrokenPromise In the first set of RPGC's (1-14) contestants usually gave their vote too, so it became a habit to read and vote and give feedback if time allowed. Although I think I forgot to vote on the previous contest.

I try to enter all the writing contest, but I missed 15 and 16 because I didn't notice they had returned :)
I still have to read the long entry from start to finish, then I can give my vote. And maybe some feedback too.


I normally wait with getting back to reviews until more people had a chance to read it, because I don't want to explain things before people formed their opinion about it, but I want to comment on this one now.

So I’m not going to do full reviews for these. For reasons of I might end up just coming off too harsh (for far too long.) So keeping it very brief, and I will be trying to provide examples. So it doesn’t look like blind and empty criticism

I'm glad to see another entry in the contest ^_^ Let's hope for a few more
