who, me? i'm just your average wild dreamer
the more chaos reveals himself, the better my pen flows across my paper
love is love; sort of indescribable... you'll know it when you feel it

FREE WRITING

Hey there my fellow writers!

    Haven't done a contest in a while so I thought I would start up this one :)

PROMPT; STARTER SENTENCE: Start your piece with this sentence:
"Many people have told me that I'm beautiful on the inside and out... they were only right about one."

You guys get to choose. Does your character feel most beautiful on the outside but not on the inside? Why? What makes the inside so "ugly"? Some goes for the other way around. Why might your character feel beautiful on the inside but not the outside? Vice versa? I'm looking for pieces of writing that touch the hear and stir up questions. 

GUIDELINES:
-Piece can be poetry or prose
-Poetry; 4 to 25 lines
- Prose; 100-1000 words
- No sexual content
- No cussing (damn and crap are ok)
- DEADLINE IS DECEMBER 23RD. (Results will hopefully be posted soon after Dec. 25th depending on how many entries)

Happy Writing!

-Your friendly New York dreamer ;)

    this is definitely a fiction plot, and has more action than reflection- still, hope you like it!

    Here's my entry. You said paraphrasing the starting sentence is okay, but I'm not sure if what I did is fine. Please tell me if it's not, and I'll change it! https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/141413/version/276088

    Quick question. Can we paraphrase the sentence that you want us to start with?

    I'll enter. So, I'm gonna do a fictional prose. I think that fictional is allowed. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I will try and get it done soon!
