Early Pearl is Hosting a Contest!!

October 4, 2018

FREE WRITING

5
EDIT: So sorry for the vagueness, haha. I'm not very good at this yet, am I? I've edited it here.

Hey-o writers! I am officially hosting 
my
first
contest!!

You can choose between two prompts which are: Write a series of short chapters that each start with a number (for example: Chapter One, First Day. Chapter Two, Second Life. Etc., etc.) with a word count limit of 1,500 words.

OR

Write a short story that starts with the sentence "It was a perfect day in Insert Month Here, beautiful as could be. But that was also the day that Insert Name Here died." with a word count of 1,000 words.

Oh, and FYI, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE World War II fiction! You will have a better chance of winning if you do that. =)

Due date will be October 15th, and I will announce winners on October 17th. Title your writing either #AStorysNumberLine (for the first prompt) or #BeautifulDayWithADarkSide (for the second one). Post a link to your piece in the comments!

Prizes are TBD. I think I'll hold a vote to see what people prefer! Tell me in the comments what you would want the prize to be, and I will choose the one that people seem to want the most. :D

Good luck all! =)

    Also, for prizes, what I've most commonly seen have been reviews and a follow (and likes on pieces, I suppose).

    Preferably, just one piece. But if you have to/want to, feel free to put it in 2 or 3 pieces. It's a lot easier for me to decide if I can look at everything all together! :)

    Regarding the series of chapters prompt, should it be in multiple pieces, or should all the chapters just be in one piece (I hope this makes sense)?
