FREE WRITING

36
Hi everybody!

I'm doing my first contest! So excited! I've seen contest come and go and thought: 'Do I dare?' Well, now I do! 

Prompt: So the prompt is 'Fire.' Yes, fire. Anything remotely related to fire, or you can suggest fire itself. Whatever your title is called, please put #fire after it so I can identify it as being part of my competition.

Word Limit: 350 words or less, please.

Type: Creative writing. You can also do Poetry.

Genre: Any genre: sci-fi, fantasy, historical, action, romance, and so on. Just steer away from non-fiction, please! 

Due date: 13th January, would be nice. I have a feeling I'm going to be very busy judging all the contestants! Can't wait!

Announcement date: I will announce the winners 1-2 weeks after the due date, probably. 

Prizes:
First place:

 A follow if I'm not already following you.
3 reviews on pieces of your choice.
5 likes on pieces of your choice.

Second place: 
A follow if I'm not already following you.

Honourable Mention:
A follow if I'm not already following you.
1 reviews on pieces of your choice.
2 likes on pieces of your choice.

And one more thing....
Nothing explicit in your pieces of writing. No gore, profanity or sex, please, otherwise you are automatically disqualified.

HAVE FUN EVERYONE!

    i wasn't going to enter this because i couldn't think of anything lmao but then on a completely unrelated note i started writing a piece and it involved fire... except i'm only one day late! oh dear. if it's okay with you i think i'll just publish it without the #fire in the title just in case i am too late, but link it here just in case i'm not.

    Is it ok if I make it about dying?? But it's not in detail. Umm, its more of a prologue about stating how people die, and then the story has no aspects of death pretty much only a touch at the very end.

    I'd love to join. I do have a question though. Can I use a previous piece of mine for this, and just end the title with #fire?

    Hey, I already have, like three pieces about fire... am I allowed to use those? (But then two of them were for other user-hosted contests...)


    over 1 year ago
  • PureHeart

    @korra4life
    Yes that's absolotuely fine. Infact the pieces that instill the most emotion (any emotion) in the readers are far superior from those who don't.

  • korra4life

    Quick question, my piece is meant to be extremely sad. Like... depressing sad. Is that okay with you?


    over 1 year ago
  • korra4life

    This sounds muy interesante. I'll try my best!

    Sounds fun! I'll see what I can do.
