Short little contest #6

February 8, 2019

FREE WRITING

13
Before I start this, I'd just like to say I'm so sorry for doing this kinda (okay, really) late. I helped out AminahMcBina with the reviews for her contest (which were like 55), and then some stuff happened IRL. I'm good now, though :) And I know that a lot of you are probably wondering why I keep doing these contests--they are a ton of work, but I love reading your entries. They're so unique and creative and I love them.
 
Quick little contest by the fly here.

Finish this sentence: I/we can't last if...

Choose one of the following categories: humor, romance (also includes friendships, familial love, things that suggest romances, etc), and short but sweet/powerful.

Please post your entry in the comments. Also post which category your sentence fits into. Sentences without a category will be disqualified. You entry may only be ONE (1) sentence long. You can submit up to 5 entries total, and it is possible to win more than once. And yes, you can ask questions :) Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Due Date is January 9. I'll be posting this a few times. Prizes are as follows:
FIRST PLACE: Three reviews (your choice or random)
SECOND PLACE: Two reviews )your choice or random)
THIRD PLACE: One review (your choice or random)
HONORABLE MENTION: One comment on up to three different pieces (your choice or random)
 
I'm also going to bring the "user-hosted contests going on right now" piece back, for those of you who are wondering ;)
