    Think the guys discussing issues were experiencing the same thing. Try following the steps laid out on this post. Hopefully that’ll do the trick.

    Re: The BTB Discussion Thread

    What are people’s opinions on “repurposing” real promos? Like people I haven’t used yet have cut promos very similar to characters I have for them. Would it be considered foul play to basically write out a very similarly but still different promo? I’m on the fence because I don’t want the real world to technically stop me from using people a certain way, but I also don’t wanna come off as copying.

    What do y’all think?

    I don't see an issue, a good promo's a good promo. The context is likely gonna be different so I say go for it

    Re: The BTB Discussion Thread

    How do you guys overcome plans for other BTBs swirling in your head that seem awesome but you already have a lot of plans for your current one? I'm having that issue right now

    For me it's pretty hard to be original when writing out a promo because there are only so many ways to set up a wrestling match and only so many character traits for people to cut a promo on with a random wrestler that it can be really tough to not rehash something you've heard of in real life. To give a quick example, imagine you wanted to write a promo where someone is trying to build a match with New Day, it would be so tough to write something that didn't end up on the topic of these fun loving guys are a joke, they need to be more serious, why do they stick with each other, they could achieve more on their own, which has been the basis of almost any Daniel Bryan promo cut on The New Day since February. I wouldn't worry about it so much and just go for it.

    My only issue with it would be if it sounds almost word for word like something we've just heard on TV like you've just plagiarized it, which I'm sure you wouldn't do.

    I think the advice the other guy gave you to try and find a way to include these ideas in your current thread is a great idea.

    Something that works for me is to just plan the new BTB in question out in a notepad or something, maybe even write a segment on a first show but don't post anything. Creativity you'll scratch that itch and get it out of your system and before you know it the allure of a shiny new toy is gone and unless the idea is a killer one and you want to pursue it at all costs, you'll find that you don't want to dump your old thread for a new one so you'll stick with it, and maybe have a new idea that might work for someone in your current thread.

    Re: The BTB Discussion Thread

    I'm new around here but not new to the booking game. It's so awesome seeing so many quality BTBs around here. Wolfy, my god. You're still going? You're a legend. Looking forward to reading someone projects around here. Any suggestions? Maybe some BTBs that aren't too far in. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    Selfish self plug... wcw 1996 is only like 2 ppvs in
    Keefmoons btb does a good job of recaps after ppvs so its easy to pick up on
    Battletanks style is really easy to read quickly with his monthly recaps
    Obviously you know wolfbeast
    And there are some newer ones that i havnt checked out just yet

    *cough* Impact 2014 check it out *cough*

    hey if bigmc can do it so can I!

    Nah there's too many great threads on here. Stojy's ECW thread is quite far in but it's still one of the best on the site. Ty2J's AEW thread and DieselsKnee's Kings of Wrestling are unique and different to what you'll usually find, EZ3's The Gorilla Position is a personal favourite and Hug Life has a recent WWE thread that's pretty neat

    Still going!

    On top of the other suggestions thrown out, if you’re looking for a thread that isn’t too far in, Homie D Clowns WCW thread is picking up a lot of traction at the minute and for good reason. But honestly, there’s quality everywhere in the section. Just close your eyes and pick a thread at random, lol. You’ll not be disappointed.

    This is shaping up to be one of the busiest months in the section, certainly since I’ve been here at least, with so many big shows upcoming and new threads getting going. What a time to be alive!

    I'm just happy to be back in the game.



    Sometimes I write stuff on the internet and people like it (sometimes).

    I'm forever writing down ideas for other threads, but luckily I tend to be a little backed up with shows for my current one. That means that, if I have a week where I'm totally distracted by a different idea, I at least don't fall really behind on my current one.

    Also, in my case, I have a clear end date in mind for when my current one will end (which allows me to know I WILL move on eventually and therefore can wait it out). But more importantly, sometimes I just push through it. Sometimes I want to write one of the two other ideas I have (one a returning thread, one brand new) but I force myself to write the current one. And, after a segment or two, I get back in the swing of it and the love comes back. An underestimated aspect of both creative writing and carrying out a project is forcing yourself forwards when the motivation is gone. It's the only way to keep going.

    Welcome to the site!

    As others have said, this site is absolutely bursting with quality threads right now, so it's kinda hard to go wrong. Whatever your preferences are (WWE, indy, WCW, ECW, Golden Age, Attitude Era, current day) there's something for everyone going on here at the moment. Dive in to whatever looks like an interesting project and I really doubt you'll be disappointed.

    Took a little bit of time off. School has bashed me around. I'm back on with my WWE thread. Hoping to finish off and have my first show posted tonight. Lets Go!

    Re: The BTB Discussion Thread

    Here's a question for you all. When writing a WWE dual branded thread, do you tend to write the shows in chronological order (i.e. Raw, Smackdown, Raw), or do you write all Raws up until a pay-per-view then move over to Smackdown?

    I've always written things chronologically in the past but now I'm thinking to change things up a bit.

    Way back when I had a duel brand WWE thread I’d work in chronological order. I feel like the change of using different wrestlers for alternative shows keeps things fresh for a writer and prevents you getting rusty on other wrestlers if writing 4 weeks of raw takes you 3 months say, that’s a while to go without writing for SD wrestlers. Plus it will delay publishing your work because you’ve got to write 3 weeks extra of raw that can’t be posted until you post week 1 of Smackdown.
