FIRST CONTEST! Flash fiction - #cwcfirstcontest

September 13, 2018

FREE WRITING

15
This club has done three prompts so far and all have received a lot of attention, so I figured it's time we started our first contest!
This is intended to be a flash fiction contest with a predetermined word count (listed below).  We would prefer paragraphs over poems.  The piece should tell a story and include a basic plot.  Start your piece with one of these sentences (the beginnings are part of your word count):
"It was, historically, the day everyone died." (7 words)
"We somehow performed a miracle and made everything go downhill synonymously." (11 words)
"In second grade we learned what humans were/are." (8 words)
The winner and runner-up will be featured in a later piece, along with links to everyone's lovely work.

NUMBER OF WORDS:
70-90

DEADLINE:
September 20
(also, RainAndSonder's birthday is 9/18, be sure to bombard them with comments!)

PRIZE:
Winner: 4 detailed peer reviews on the pieces of your choice + piece-long shoutout from either Paperbird or RainAndSonder
Runner-up: 2 detailed peer reviews on the pieces of your choice

TIPS:
-Avoid filler words!
-Utilize metaphor!
-Only use the best adjectives possible!
-Show the world how awesome you are!

AND DON'T FORGET!  Title your piece with #cwcfirstcontest.  Any entry submitted will be liked by us.
If you have any questions (or if I forgot anything), put them in the comment section below.
Happy writing!

    i am definitely doing this. PS: i think you should include the time zones in your due dates, as some of us (or maybe just me) live elsewhere so i believe that Sep 20 for you may be Sep 21 for me. just a suggestion :)
