The Cliffhanger Queen's Contest

January 17, 2019

FREE WRITING

40
This is probably not the best time to host a contest, but I wanted to give it a shot.

Prompt: Whatever you want, but it should have a catchy title and a good cliffhanger at the end.

Deadline: January 21st. That gives you all one month.

Tag: #cliffhangerqueencontest

Prizes:
  1. Fifteen reviews; Five comments; Three shout-outs. Your piece will also head an 11 piece series on here.
  2. Ten reviews; Three comments; Two shout-outs. I will use a character from your piece.
  3. Five reviews; One comment; One shout-out. Your piece will be used for ideas in the series.
Honorable Mention: One review. 

All entries will be reviewed after the contest. 
The series started with the 1st place entry should appear a week after the contest deadline.

Pieces will be judged on: personal preference, writing quality, title--which will probably become the title of the series, and especially, the cliffhanger :)

Have fun guys and I can't wait to see what you come up with!

    I have read the Percy Jackson books, I didn't really care for them though. His cliffhangers are pretty good though :)
    BTW, thanks for the 30th star :DD I can't wait to see your entry! :DD


    about 1 year ago
  • Kahasai

    Your contest title is really catchy. I love it. Have you read anything by Rick Riordan--specifically, the third book of Heroes of Olympus series? Because he'd be king of the cliffhanger contest ... Well, he'd compete with sixth book in Keys to the Kingdom by Garth Nix, or the fourth book of the Green Rider series by Kristen Britain.


    about 1 year ago
  • Kahasai

    I'm going to give you the 30th star, then I'll see if I can enter.

    You said anything, and didn't give a word limit ... So I guess a section of a novel could do well ...

    No, I was planning to use the first place piece to start a miniseries on here, but that's optional, especially if the winner would rather I didn't. I was just trying to come up with a unique prize :D

    "the series started with the first place entry,,"
    I don't understand. Is it required to also continue the story later from where we left off?

    I finished my piece!! :D I'm so excited XD. Anyway, I'm linking the first story that it's a sequel too as well as the piece I'm actually entering.
    First book (for context, not as an entry): https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/97198/version/184912

    about 1 year ago
  • Quille

    Yes, that would totally be allowed :DD Anybody who doesn't want either a character or a mini-series is totally welcome to still enter and I just won't use their piece that part. They can still win :DD
    Looking forward to your entry and good luck with the novel! :DD


    about 1 year ago
  • pencils.and.paper.roses

    One more question XD. I'm writing a book that's a sequel (I can link the first one if you want), it's majorly long for WtW, and I reaaaallly want to enter because it's going to have an awesome cliffhanger at the end. If I enter it, I'd be willing to forfeit the mini-series and just have one of my characters used. :P Would this be allowed?

    @Early Pearl, you can use any prompt you want; even poetry! Just have fun :D
    @RainAndSonder, I meant that I generally ignore advice as to what I should write and what I shouldn't. That's all. I love to receive other tips and feedback, but I'm going to write what I want to :D


    about 1 year ago

    Holy COW, that’s s huge prize! And a great contest! I’M TOTALLY ENTERING!!


    about 1 year ago
  • rainandsonder

    i don’t want to bothering you but i was wondering, what do you mean in your message to write when you say that you love critical feedback but “generally ignore writing advice”? isn’t that kind of contradictory? and why would you ignore it when it could help you? i’m just wondering, i hope i don’t seem rude or anything

    about 1 year ago

    This is so exciting! Titles and cliffhangers are both hard for me, but I'm going to do it because the lack of a word limit is too sweet to ignore.


    about 1 year ago
  • paperbird

    alright; that's mostly what i'm doing :)


    about 1 year ago
  • Quille

    I think what I'd like more is if you just pointed out places in my writing where added descriptions/characterization or grammar is needed, places you feel confused, places/phrases/wording you like, and things like that.
    I'm really glad you weren't offended :D
    Thank you and Merry Christmas again! :DD


    about 1 year ago
  • paperbird

    @quille so do you want me to point to specific instances or give u general advice?
    it’s fine btw i wasn’t offended. merry christmas!


    about 1 year ago
  • Quille

    I love to receive feedback. I was only trying to make it clear that there is a difference between critical feedback and advice that I'm already following. I hope you weren't offended :) Merry Christmas! :DD


    about 1 year ago
  • paperbird

    i guess i'm wondering why you asked for reviews if you're not going to take advice into consideration.


    about 1 year ago
  • paperbird

    so i saw your new message from writer. do you want to stop receiving critical feedback? i thought you liked it, but if it's not helpful i don't have to.

    If you wanted to still enter Unspoken, that'll be fine and you'll still receive reviews if you win :D


    about 1 year ago

    I would say yes, but part of the prize was to turn the winning piece into a series and Unspoken is already a series :) I would love to have you enter though and imagine a very wonderful cliffhanger :D


    about 1 year ago

    I'm notorious for cliffhangers in Unspoken, which has quite a catchy title, so can I enter a fragment of it?

    This prompt is too open ended.... but my competitive spirit is telling me to enter pronto...

    Also, thank you for the reviews :D


    about 1 year ago
  • paperbird

    i'm tempted to enter--fifteen reviews is a lot, and you're a detailed reviewer--but i feel like maybe i should hold off because you're already reviewing so much of my work. i also really like the prompt. idk.
