Movellas WoW writing competition

I am making this post under duress from Navi and Kamalia, I swear!

So a while ago I saw a writing competition being advertised on the twitters calling for writers to submit their stories about WoW. Since I have been known to do that kind of thing I submitted three stories (there was no limit) on what I thought was nearly the end of the competition. June 6th came and went and nothing changed on the competition page so I stupidly stopped checking back. Then, after July 6th I got a tweet from the illustrious Ironyca alerting me to the fact that the winners had been announced.

And.....

I was one of them?

Out of 74 entries, 8 were chosen to receive some fun prizes. My story The Innkeeper's Daughter got second place, as illustrated by this incredible image made by WoW Roleplay Gear. LOOK YOU GUYS! It's Aka wearing silver plate!!!


I highly recommend you take a moment to peruse all of the entries, because there were a lot of really great ones, including some by other bloggers you know and love!

  6. Congratulations!

    I stalked your character on the armory to replicate you in the Overlord's set, and yeah, sadly it had to be plate. Leather just doesn't have that silver shine.

    I read your story and I'd recommend it to anyone! I have not read much WoW fanfic, but I was really inspired by it.

    1. That's very kind of you to say! I totally understand that it would be easier to design a shiny silver suit in plate rather than leather. I love it!!
