My 3rd contest! #imagineit

August 31, 2019

FREE WRITING

34

Prompt 1: Poetry
Fear. Ever since you were a little child you were afraid of something. Throughout the years many of your fears has either disappeared, shrunk, or grown, however-everyone is afraid of something. For this prompt writers, I want you to write a poem based around fear. From how you react to it to what leaves you screaming. Or perhaps you want to leave me with fear, or your description of it. Either way, I can't wait to know what you think about: fear. (The fear may be fictional of you wish).
Line limit: 5-30
Word limit: 10-100
Prompt 2: Short Story
The 4 horsemen. Pick one, pick all, pick only a few, whatever you chose, you may have at least one. They can be mentioned, or the story can revolve around them, or just in a little bit of the story. However you incorporate them, I want it to be either obvious or states which ones you use throughout the piece. You can turn it into a romance involving one with a mortal (or even eachother) or make it a comedy, do whatever you prefer. 
Word limit: 100-1000 (I'll give you some wiggle room)
 Prompt 3: Sentences
Create a piece that starts off with a sentence containing 20 words, the next sentences has 19, the sentence after has 18, and so on and so forth and stop at one word. You can have any theme, topic, plot, details, whatever you want, as long as you follow the guidelines. (This is kinda a fun and challenging prompt).
Word limit: exactly 210

Prizes:
  1. 5 reviews (your choice), a follow, bio shout out as a queen/king, 4 comments/likes (my choice)
  2. 4 reviews (your choice), a follow, 3 commets/likes (my choice)
  3. 3 reviews (your choice), 2 comments/likes
Honorable Mention: 1 review and a bio shout out, 1 comment/like

DUE DATE (FOR ALL PROMPTS): AUG. 31st 2019 @11:59 AM EST
(It would be nice if you put a link in the comments or say if you'll participate)
Rules & Regulations:
  1. No profanity (crap, hell, and damn are fine)
  2. No excessively gory scenes. I love a good fight, war, and death scene as the next person but just be mindful of certain descriptions.
  3. I will count the words, so be careful
  4. Put #imagineit in the tittle of your piece (regardless of prompt)
  5. Put what prompt you did in the footnotes
  6. Yes, you may enter for each prompt as well as possibly win
  7. No, you can't go past the due date
  8. Hopefully I'll get lots of entries so the results may take some times (2 weeks I think)
  9. The prizes are the same for all prompts
  10. HAVE FUN!!!!

    highlight the word, sentence, or phrase you wanted to be linked, then click the paperclip looking thing next to the bullet point options on your piece (under the title, by the bolding and italicizing), lastly, paste the link! Hit enter! BOOM!

    210 words??? I did the third one and I counted over and over again and I have all the right amounts (20-word line start 1-word line end) and it amounts to 220.

    I would prefer you to avoid using it, however, if you really want to use it and/or need it, please use it as minimal as possible.
