50 Follower Contest !!! #PrettyContest (First contest Please Enter) 2 days left to enter !!!

July 6, 2020

FREE WRITING

46
Hi Everybody!!
First I would like to say a huge thank you to all of my followers! Since joining a month ago all of you have been so supportive of my writing and there is an appreciation post coming for all of you soonish just currently quite busy with Exams :(

SOOOOO ... It's Contest Time!! 
Thought I'd hold a contest because 

a) Have never held one (only been on WTW a month)
b) I love entering contests other people hold (have entered 7 and counting)
c) Appreciating my 50 followers and gives me a chance to read more of your amazing writing
d) And last but not least I need something to look forward to after exams!

Sooo... Have been trying to think of some prompt ideas which hopefully you will like!! 

Timeline:
Entries will be due on the 9th of July (As per AEST (GMT+10) time! However will wait till the next day to start judging as timezones are super confusing!

How to enter:
- Would love if you followed my profile (I follow everyone of my followers back I think) however if you don't thats ok too. 
- Please like this piece so I know people are interested in the contest and I'm not only going to get 2 entries
- Link the piece down below with the title and prompt number!
- Include #PrettyContest in your title with the prompt you are doing
~>Example<~
Prompt 1: #PrettyContest 1

There are 5 prompts in this contest and you can enter each prompt up to two times though I doubt anyone will. 

Prompt 1: Romance 
Length: 1500 words
Format: Anything you want!

I am usually a poetry writer on principal and find it easier to judge however for this prompt will accept any format you like. I am a helpless romantic so tug away at my heart strings and make me fall in love with the amazing piece(s) you write. 


Prompt 2: An Emotion
Length: 250 words
Format: Poetry

For this prompt you can pick any emotion you want happy or sad and write a piece on it. Really explore what it feels like, and what the emotion is. Please also state what it is in the footnotes. Try and explore it without mentioning what it is in the actual poem itself. 

^^ This prompt is inspired by two of my pieces which I will link below if anyone is interested in reading them. 

Don't Blush - Embarrassment
A Movie of Memory - Nostalgia


Prompt 3: An issue you are Passionate about!!
Length: 2000 words (I've left it long however its not length I'm looking for in this piece it's content)
Format: Anything

This prompt is entirely about the prompt not a word limit or format. There are so many issues from climate change to gender inequality to racial prejudice to so so many more. Choose any issue you are passionate about and write about it!! It doesn't matter how you convey the issue but I want it to be clear in the piece you write. 

^^ This prompt is also partially inspired by two of my pieces which I will link below if anyone is interested in reading them but also just I have a dream that when I am older I will help to change the world.

A life without two things. Love and Freedom - Work in Progress 
Expectations and Inequalities - Feminism Slam Poem


Prompt 4: Write about a Memory!
Length: 300 words 
Format: Anything

This is supposed to be short! I want you to convey a powerful or significant memory to you in as little words as possible. Make me feel like I was there either watching it happen or experiencing what you were. 


Prompt 5: Flowers
Length: 200 words max!
Format: Ideally poetry but stories or prose are fine too!

I struggle a lot to be concise and short but that is what I'm asking you do with this prompt. Keep it short and concise and celebrate the beauty of flowers in this prompt. Flowers are one of my favourite things, they make me happy on bad days and smile in general, they have so many beautiful colours and are full of life. 


Wow - that is very long. So sorry! The prompts are quite open ended and I think there is scope for anyone to adapt and make their own interpretation of what each one is about. You can write any style for almost all. I am better at writing and judging poetry than other styles however that shouldn't affect my judgement of pieces just something to take note of if you are a winner and want reviews.

Now the part you are all probably waiting for!!!
Prizes!!


For each prompt there will be first, second, third and one/two honourable mentions provided I get enough entries. 

First Place: 
A follow as always, 15 likes (of my choice - unless I already like all/most of your pieces),7 comments (your choice) and 5 reviews (your choice)

Second Place:
A follow as always, 10 likes (of my choice - unless I already like all/most of your pieces),5 comments (your choice) and 3 reviews (your choice)

Third Place: 
A follow as always, 7 likes (of my choice - unless I already like all/most of your pieces),3 comments (your choice) and 2 reviews (your choice)

Honourable Mention:
A follow as always, 4 likes (of my choice - unless I already like all/most of your pieces),1 comment (your choice) and 1 review (your choice)

All entries will receive a comment, and like! 


I put a lot of thought into this contest so I hope a lot of you like it and enter!!  ~ Hope the prizes are ok and 1 month + should be enough time for the competition I hope. Can't wait to read some of your amazing writing! Happy Writing !!!

Side Note ~ I love anything that will make me emotional - heartfelt, passionate, relatable, happy or sad, moving pieces Make me feel something!
Word Count:  1000 Words (Sorry that was very satisfying)
First Published: 23/05/2020 (Will keep republishing and try to keep the message updated)
Due: 9/07/2020

    4 days left to enter and what amazing entries they are! Can't wait to get stuck into judging but it may be kinda hard with such amazing pieces! (I may take a little while for it and potentially a little longer to get the prizes out but I will do every last one!)
