Creative Writing

The Daily Neopets

For many of these, I co-wrote them with another person and can only take credit for anything involving “Lydia.” These are all based in fact – the results we reported on were actual results from Neopets’ annual event, The Altador Cup. We just took liberty in how we reported it.

During the archiving process, the html is not preserved properly and there is no way to fix this as of right now.


I was the director of the Altador Cup Coverage this year and was up almost every night editing what the writers produced.
