#Psychological Contest

February 15, 2019

FREE WRITING

18
Since I reached 35 followers recently, I wanted to create a contest! The topic of the contest is: 

psychological

Now, this may seem daunting at first, but trust me that it's fun to write about this topic. It's my favorite genre for books and anime. Some of you might ask "What does the psychological genre entail?". From my experience, the psychological genre has been a gateway to really express how I'm feeling. Usually, a character will go through some form of trauma and they need to learn how to live with it. Horror is also a big aspect of this genre as you might have heard the term "Psychological Horror" before.

If you want inspiration, you can watch my favorite anime to get a feel for what the genre is like:

Haibane Renmei
Paranoia Agent
Shinsekai Yori
The Tatami Galaxy

Kajii (First season)

Some more famous examples would probably be:

Higurashi no naku koro ni
Death Note
Modoka Magica

    I posted a piece inspired by your contest, however, I don't know if it actually fits in the psychological genre. Can you read it and get back to me please? If it doesn't that's totally okay, I have a whole other idea for this contest. My piece is called, 'Love's A Lie"

    Can I use an old piece that I think might fit the prompt or do I have to write something new?

    I tried to do this. Failed before I wrote even the first sentence... I don't know, but I might be able to make it. Cool prompt!!

    Do you mind if I enter the piece I was making for you from my contest? It already has 2000 words and it's in the pretty much right genre.
