Message from Writer

The bio field doesn’t allow enough words to explain me, so here I am.

I’m the girl in the back of your English class, writing stories instead of taking notes.

I’m the girl alone at lunch, reading a book and listening to the Lumineers and the Beatles until the bell rings.

I’m the girl who has a crush on all the boys, but never admits it. I’m too shy.

I’m the girl who smiles at the new kids, even if we never become friends. I never win yearbook awards, and I’m just fine with that.

I’m the dreamer who never stops imagining what the future could look like, because there are endless possibilities, and any one of them could be mine.

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)?
