30+ Follower Competition!

April 15, 2020

FREE WRITING

23
Hi, Writing4Life here! I am hosting a competition because.....*drum roll*....... I have reached my goal of 30 followers!  Which isn't very much considering on a coding website, Scratch, I have 332 followers! *eye roll* Thanks to my first follower, CrazyNinjaKid and my 30th follower, Abby Rater! Go follow them and the rest of my followers! :) Thank you everyone! So here are the prompts!


Prompt 1: If Animals Could Speak
Word Count: 100-300 words
Format: Short Story

For this prompt, write a short story about what would happen if animals could speak! For this, think about things from a different angle.... An animals angle! Give it a birds eye view, or an ants eye view! What would these animals think? What would they do? What would humans do? Keep it interesting! It can be as funny as you like!

Prompt 2: The Other Angle
Word Count: 150-400 words
Format: Short Story 

For this prompt, write a short story about a story untold! Use a well-known story, perhaps a war, and then write from the other perspective. Say, if it's at a Jewish Concentration Camp, tell the story of one of the guards! In my opinion, this would be more of a serious topic, but you may make it comedic. 

Prompt 3: How It Should Have Ended
Word Count: 25-200 words
Format: Short Story

You may have seen this on Youtube :) So for this prompt, choose a book or movie, and say how, if you had written the script/book, it would have ended! Because I may not know the story line, add in the beginning a brief summary of the book/movie and how it did end. This can totally be funny!

Prompt 4: Why Should we change?
Word Count: 50-1,000 words, Or 10-30 lines
Format: Short Story, Essay, Or Verse (Poem)

For this prompt there are several ways to choose from (which is why you have so many words!) For this, you have to tell me why should we, as humans, change from our current path? Why should we stop polluting the ocean? Why should we stop releasing greenhouse gases into our atmosphere? Give me a really strong, convincing essay, short story or poem! I definitely wouldn't recommend this being funny, but you can give it a go if you want! It may work out for ya! 

RULES *IMPORTANT PLEASE READ*
✦ Stick to your word count! You must be above the minimum and under the maximum. If you really need less or more words, write to me, and I'll figure something out.
✦ No swearing! Damn and dang are ok, but please keep it clean. 
✦ Please don't use much blood, some is ok, but nothing too gruesome! 
✦ Try not to use slang, in context is ok, but please don't use too much.
✦ No sexual content. Try and keep if PG :)
✦ Absolutely NO Plagiarism! 
✦ You may enter once for each prompt but that's all!

    @Writing4life Thanks for the comment in my piece "The life they left us"!! I'm glad you like it. Sorry for the mistakes, English isn't my native language…

    @Writing4life I totally forgot about the title… If I change it, the comments will be gone… So is there any problem if I leave it like that? Or do you need a title? It could be "The Glue", since it is Newt's label.
