Default Skilled Writers Needed!

Hail! all of Heresy's skilled short story writers. Commissar Ploss here to ask something of you.

If you are a writer who has posted at least 5 stories here on Heresy, and would like to take part in a so far "secret" project for Heresy-Online, i want you!

I'm looking for writers who can consistently produce stories around 5-7k words. If you are interested, please post here. If you don't fill the reqs, you need not reply. I'm looking for writers who can complete short stories. No ongoing stories are wanted or willing to entertained right now. If you post your interest here, i will contact you via PM about what i am looking for. The stories you will write need to be NEW AND ORIGINAL for them to be considered. Not something that you have posted previously here on Heresy or elsewhere.

cheers,

Commissar Ploss

I'm in, guv'nor.

Is it just me, or did you tailor the requirements specifically toward me?

This intrigues me...

Is this going to be some compilation of sorts?

Bah, I haven't really posted stories here but I've written short stories for the Competition and other members. If you still think I'd be eligible, I'm interested.

I just like the sound of "secret project." Maybe we'll be working together.

I'll take up the offer, especially if I could do Crossovers. , And that's also if you think I'm good enough.

I'm torn. I've gone through a rough patch between writing as of late, but I am willing to give it a try. My main problem is motivation/inspiration, sadly. May take me a tad longer than most people to get something done. I'm far from the best writer, but I like to think that I can hold my own if I wanted to. The primary question which comes to mind, and hasn't been answered as of yet, in the thread, is - Does it have to be GW-related?

I assume it does, due to the forums being primarily based on Warhammer, but you never know. I think that in a way, I'd rather not write about Marines, Guard or whatever. But, I'm not entirely bothered! Drop me a PM and I'll think about it, Ploss..

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'
