Message from Writer

I like writing poetry, short stories, and the occasionaly nonfiction piece.

Here you'll find all sorts of poetry, short stories, mini series about my boys, and some D&D (dungeons and dragons) tales. Hope you enjoy!

Contest! #PrompyCompy

May 3, 2020

FREE WRITING

28
There are lots of contests being held, and I thought I'd do one myself. This should be fun.

Prompt #1
Write a magical sounding poem on on eof the following:
A flower petal
Moonlight
Darkness
Stars
A tree
A blue butterfly
There is no word limit, just make it sound magical.

Prompt #2
Knock-off fairytales.
Write a fairytale based off of one or more of Grimm's fairy tales. You can just use one, or as many as you like. You can set them in modern times or make whatever adjustments you want.
For those of you who don't know Grimm's fairytales are those such as: The Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Frog Prince, Briar Rose (Sleeping Beauty), Rumpelstilskin, Rapunzel, Cinderella, Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs, etc. You can comment below if you need more listed. (Though I would also love to hear more unpopular/unknown ones.) No exceeding 3,000 words, but I am willing to be leiniant. 

Prompt #3 
Write a poem or short story that captures an important moment. It doesn't have to be what other people see as important, as long as it is important to you, or you think it holds value. It does not have to be a true story. No exceeding 2,000 words, but I am willing to be leiniant. 

Prompt #4
Flash fiction.
Write a short story (between about 500-2,000 words). It can be about anyting you like, get creative! 

Prompt #5
Free write. It can be anything and everything. Whatever you want, with no word limit.

Requirements:
Like this piece, so I know who's all intrested.
Put the #PrompyCompy at the end of the title following with the prompt number. Ex: If you did prompt #1 it would be #PrompyCompy1
Words don't have to be exact, but somewhere around the said limits, if I set any for the prompt you're doing.
You may enter one piece per prompt.

There will be 1st, 2nd , and 3rd place winners for each prompt.

1st will recieve:
A follow
3 likes (of my choice)
2 reviews (of your choice)

2nd will recieve:
2 likes (of my choice)
1 review (of your choice)

3rd will recieve:
1 like (of my choice)

But keep in mind, when I check out your pages, I might end up liking and reviewing more stuff, just because I enjoy your works!

All entries are due by Sunday May 3rd. (Time zones are touchy, so I'll start final judging the next day.)

Have fun!

    You've got the rest of the night to get your prompts in. If you get them in early tommorow morning (by, say, 9ish) I'll count them as well.

    I hope this doesn't disqualify me... I recently republished my story for Prompt 5 and neglected to put #PrompyCompy5. Do you want me to republish it with it (with a new comment and link) or is it fine?
