So this is my first ever contest and I am very excited. I live in India and its festival season here right now- Durga Puja, Navratri, Dusshera, Diwali, and so many more to come! Also, Halloween and Christmas are coming up, so I thought what better prompt than festivals. So here goes...
PROMPT- Write about any festival you like or you have a special connection to. Anything you like about it, an incident that is close to your heart, anything. It could be a fictional character or a personal experience. It could be a story, a poem, anything, I don't mind. The festival doesn't have to be upcoming, it could be any festival, even if it has recently passed by.
WORD LIMIT- 100 to 1500 words
GENRE- Your piece could be comical, emotional, dramatic, any genre you like. But please try and avoid horror. 
If you want to enter, please comment or like, so I would know where to look for entries and if you are deciding to enter, please put the link of your piece in the comments. 
Also, you can enter an old piece of yours if it suits this prompt, no restrictions on that.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE- 30th October 2019, IST 
Results will be announced in the second week of November.
1st place: 10 likes and 5 reviews on your choice of pieces
2nd place: 7 likes and 3 reviews on your choice of pieces
3rd place: 5 likes and 1 review on your choice of piece
Honourable mention: 2 likes on your choice of pieces
Please include #festivities in your title so I know it is meant for this contest.
Feel free to ask questions in the comments if you have any queries and let me know if I have missed out any important information.

    I would enter this... but I seriously can't think of anything to write. I'm so sorry- I swear to god, I tried so many ideas and they're not working out!! Maybe I'll come up with something soon, but for now you'll have to count me out. :(

    @K. Marie Christen & @buddingauthor
    [$5.92] is in my bio because of a piece I wrote a while ago, about a traumatic experience I went too and my thoughts, feelings, and opinions afterward. It was a personal thing I wrote only a few saw and was temporarily posted. Although it didn't seem like a VERY traumatic event like people think of, it left me with PTSD. So that's why, :)! Maybe I'll rewrite it and posted it again, but yeah. It's like a survivor's mark in a sense, more for me than anything else.
