Love you all.

Message from Writer

To those who remember us,
Thanks for everything, are 2 years of activity were everything, it was truly amazing.

To those who don't know us,
You missed a heck of a couple of years, but I'm sure your time here will still be amazing. Write the World helped us on our own journey of self-discovery.

So thank you, everybody.

This is our last sign off. :)

ATTENTION ALL WRITERS OF THE WORLD!!!!!
So for this months intro, we're going to do a quote because quotes are fun and inspirational (and we have no other intro idea to do :))
"Write what should not be forgotten" -Isabel Allende
ALSO, READ THE WHOLE PIECE BEFORE NOMINATING SO YOU DO NOT NOMINATE WRONG!

Here's How To Nominate:
-Like this post
-Comment below the piece you want to submit (State piece's name, category, Author, & short reason for nomination. Also, a link would be helpful but not necessary!)
Qualifications for Nomination:
-Pieces must have been written in the month of October 2019

-If you do nominate more than 1 piece, one may be your own, but the OTHER 2 has to be someone else's
-You may not nominate more than 1 piece of YOUR own work
-Do not comment questions in this post, ask questions in the posts of our prompts
-The piece must not be too sexual and/or contain extremely bad curse words (keep it PG-13)
-Pieces may not have been part of any WTW competitions (however, they may be ones of user-hosted contests)
-If any rules and/or qualifications aren't met, your nomination does NOT count

Miscellaneous (please try to avoid this category if possible and sort it in the other ones)
Lastly:
-All nominations are due by the 16th of November, anything later isn't accepted
-We will allow pieces to be in more than 1 category. Therefore, for example, you can have a piece that's romance and tragedy.
-After all nominations, we will go back through and PEER REVIEW them personally. Then, we'll pick the best from the best and post them all on one page called 'October Must Reads' (which will be reposted more than once)

    Title: wolves on the wind
    Author: Anha
    Category: Narrative
    Reason: Anha's style is incredibly beautiful and absolutely immersive. Her construction of a literary world in this piece is one of the things that exemplifies the deliberate way in which she writes and the hard work she puts into every word she types up. All her work truly deserves a read, but this is one of my favourite pieces of hers to come out during October.

    Title: hometown blues
    Author: paigepaigepaige
    Category: Lowercase prose
    Reason: this piece has such a relatable feel of wanting to escape from a place where you don’t fit in, and the imagery used in it is insanely beautiful and detailed in just the right way. (Also, this author needs more recognition because their pieces are absolutely gorgeous.)

    Title: Past Memories
    Author: Myself! (Kinda selfish)
    Category: Tragedy/romance/Thriller/Horror
    Reason: It'll hopefully be my first ever novel published, and I'd love for people to look through it.

    Title: The Trials
    Author: Twilight
    Category: Action/Thriller/Fantasy
    Reason: It's just so compelling! I can't even begin to describe how my heart was feeling when I was reading it.

    (There was another one, but I can't remember the name of it. I'll have to come back some day with the name. Thank you!)

    i hate the 'only three pieces' rule so much.

    title: creatures of the desert
    author: (self-nomination because i'm feeling selfish this month)
    category: fantasy, narrative, lower case prose, folklore
    reason: i was really happy with how this turned out; the foils of assana and her grandfather portray a strong message of love that transcends generations.
    link: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/130916/version/251684

    title: And lies will tarnish the blood of the innocent until my veins are ruby-red once more.
    author: r|A|i|N
    category: tragedy, narrative
    reason: in the words of artificialaorta; 'Ultimately, it asks the question: "Does a tree make a sound if no-one is there to hear it?", and it fiercely responds, "Don't be an idiot."'
    link: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/132438/version/256991

    title: dogs' eyelashes
    author: artificialaorta
    category: narrative, folklore
    reason: the cultural influence shines through artificialaorta's brilliant writing style; i'm only sad that i didn't have time to praise this piece sooner.

    I nominate The Power of Words by Aurelia. Valus for one liners. Its short, yet it makes a big impact.
    https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/133776/version/257426
    And I nomimate 3 Marshmallows #festivities by Charisse Marison for Simple but powerful. The story is full of nostalgia and real emotions.
