I accept this debate challenge. (Is that what I'm supposed to do here in round 1? I'm new here. This is my first debate. I chose this one because well, writing is something I already know how to do without learning any new terms for this site. I hope there's no new terms in this debate. Because the site is new to me and I had trouble setting up an account and couldn't get all the details right in my profile and such, so I need this first debate to not be too difficult.)

I will accept the Romace category (of course!). (That's what I'm supposed to do, right? I chose Romance because I'm a naturally romantic person.)
Debate Round No. 1

After finishing my story, I realized that even though I picked Romance I was influenced by the other 2 choices!!

The story is 7999 characters with spaces.

Since, yes, no italics I also put my story online. I made an account at a publishing website for this. I hope the voters don't let all the flashing lights at the website distract them as much as they distracted me. Also I hope the link works because I haven't posted a link here before, LOL. At the bottom of the web page you can make the story pages bigger and easier to read.

Thank you for a fun first debate!

Thanks! I liked yours too. It reminded me of Octavio Paz or an early Dean Koontz story I read.

I'd still abide by the 8000 character rule.

Miz_Ro---I'm in the process of a story, but Italics are an essential component of it. Unfortunately, I don't think we can Italicize in a "debate", so would it be okay if I posted it online first and then linked to it here?

"I would like to take this one and even have a story ready but do I have to wait until Round 2 to post it?

If so, I won't be able to take it because I'm going away for the weekend in an hour or so."

Sorry, Brian, I don't know how I missed your comment. Yes, you would have had to wait until round 2. Hope you're having a nice trip :)

Like a painting telling its story. Like "Night Gallery".

It should be 8000, but if you start to reply it should show you. What do you mean by talking portrait?
Posted by Miz_Ro 6 years ago
Miz_Ro
Oh, OK, I see. Well, then:

Angst
The Talking Portrait
Comedy

Like that?
Also, what was the word limit again?
