I Must Construct Additional Pylons!

Courtesy Blizzard

I have an entry created for Blizzard’s writing contest, and while I think it’s okay, I want to be doubly sure it’s highly polished and as Blizzardy as possible. But it’s not about what I think, is it? It’s going to be read by other people.

So I need other people willing to read it. Specifically, I’m looking for at least two.

I need someone familiar with StarCraft. The game has some particulars in terms of lore, background, themes and mood. I want to make sure I’m hitting all of the major touchpoints and haven’t completely botched my timelines.

I also need someone familiar with writing. The words I’ve chosen are in a particular order, but I don’t know if they’re in the best order. I’ve gotten great feedback on Citizen in the Wilds thanks to people looking at the order of my words, and I’d love this little short work to get the same treatment.

Leave me a comment if you’re interested. I can send you an invite to the Google document via the email address you’ll input to post the comment. Once I’m a bit more confident in this, I’ll send it off to Blizzard and start making burnt offerings to any deity within celestial earshot.

I really want this to go well. Like, a lot.


  1. I’m not familiar with any of that, but good luck!

  2. Happy to take a look.

  3. 11 years ago, I would’ve been your man! Now, alas, I can’t even remember the name of the origin race that created the Zerg and Protoss, and which showed up at the end of the story.

  4. Ah, dang it. Now I’ve gone and ordered the StarCraft Battle Chest from Amazon for $9.99. Are you happy? I’ve regressed 11 years! 😉
