My First Ever User Contest! #Conficiens (CLOSED)

June 30, 2020

FREE WRITING

31
Ok, I know that a lot of competitions are going on at the moment, but I had some really good prompts and I wanna connect better with WTW, and so, here it is. Also, I know that I don't have a lot of followers, and so I'll try to repost this as much as I can. Please try to participate, it would mean a lot :)

Ok so, here goes nothing!

Prompt 1-Fanfiction
Ok, here's a list of all the things you can make a fanfic of-

-Brooklyn Nine-Nine 
-The Big Bang Theory
-Friends
-Sherlock (Do a mystery thriller!)
-The Avengers
-Harry Potter
-Money Heist/La Casa De Papel

This is one of my best prompts, and I expect a great response to this one!

Form-Short Story
Word Limit-1000 words 

Prompt 2- Creative Writing
Ok, so this one's good. What you need to do is, take an ordinary event, and portray it in an interesting form. Be descriptive, it'll turn out good. For example, try to explain an event like going to school, or making coffee, in an amazing way. Use metaphors!

Form-Poetry or Prose
Word Limit- 500-700 words MAX

Prompt 3- Pop Culture Essay
The title says it all. You can write about ANYTHING, it has to be related to pop culture, though. Write about a book, about a movie, about a T.V Show, it's your choice. 

Form-Essay (surprise!)
Word Limit-1000-2000 words

Prompt 4-Break your own news
I really like this one, too! Ok, so it's really easy, but you'll have to be creative.
You have to write your own news article, it should be fictional, and humor is a MUST.
Don't write something dark, please.

Form-News Article
Word Limit- 500 Words MAX


Rules: 
-To participate, like this post (so that I have an estimate of the number of people who are willing)
and follow my account (because I'm an attention seeker lol please)
-Publish your pieces with #Conficiens mentioned in the title, and the prompt chosen in the message to readers.
-Don't be too explicit, kissing allowed, nothing more!
-Plagiarism not allowed
-Ask your queries in the comments
-Please adhere to the word limit, especially the ones which have MAX in front of them, in the others, you can have 20 words plus or minus.

Prizes(!)
1st Prize in each category- 5 reviews on pieces of your choice, 10 likes on pieces of my choice and a follow
2nd Prize in each category- 2 reviews on pieces of your choice, 7 likes on pieces of my choice and a follow
3rd Prize in each category- 1 review on a piece of your choice, 5 likes on pieces of my choice
(I hope it's not a little less; if it is, please inform in the comments on this post)

Important Dates:
Deadline- 20th June midnight IST (I know it's early, but I can't wait!)
Results- 25th June IST

P.S- I'll be updating the entries in the Message to Readers section daily, and the comments will get deleted, so please keep up if you have any queries. Don't ask them at a time when the post is about to be deleted.

OK THEN, ENJOYYY!

    Hey! Turns out I can't participate. :p I'm really sorry for all the false hope. I didn't foresee the larger amount of time I had to put into my school life, which cost me alot of writing time.

    However, when I'm done, I can still post the piece here if you still wish to read it. :p

    sorry again :\

    hey,for prompt 2, can I submit something that I've already submitted for an ongoing contest?
    (if you want to reply to other user's comments/questions go to one of *their* pieces, and say replying: before it. it took me a while to get this too, but it helps as they can get the notification)

    My entry for prompt 1:

    https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/173082/version/342895

    It's a piece I posted on my wattpad account, @Sunv06, but it fit the criteria, so I decided to post this.

    I can submit so many more pieces for this one prompt, because I am going to through a Harry Potter obsessive phase, if that makes any sense, so if you are short on entries, I would be more than happy to submit more.

    Anyways, I'll also most probably be submitting pieces for the other prompts too.
