That's right, kids - it's contest time! To mark the fact that we're about to smash 100,000 posts, I thought we could do a little thematically-appropriate contest. You know, just to celebrate while we close out those last few posts to take us to the target.
So what do you have to do? I'm glad you asked. At the foot of this post I, the benevolent Moderator, will provide you, the erstwhile member, with a series of prompts. Your job, should you choose to accept it, is to craft a piece of writing from one of those prompts, and to post it here. Simple, right? There's only one small caveat - your piece must be exactly 100 words.
What you're aiming to do is to create a standalone piece of very short writing that still offers character and/or plot development. Since I'm such a nice guy, I've even brought a few examples to steer you in the right direction. We'll be judging your entry in terms of technical quality (i.e. spelling, grammar, etc.) along with how well you've used your 100 words to create an interesting piece of fiction.
- Entries should be exactly 100 words. You'll lose points for submitting anything over or under this. So that we're on the same page, we'll be using WordCounter.net to judge the length of your entries, so you might want to use this in advance of submitting yours.
- It goes without saying, but no plagiarism, and nothing that's previously been posted elsewhere.
- All entries should be posted to this thread no later than Sunday 15 April 2018
- Standard forum rules apply in terms of acceptable content, but if you're unsure, PM myself or another Staff member for advice
That's right, there's a prize this time round! It's just a small token, but our lucky winner will receive an Amazon gift card worth $10 (or £10, if you're using UK money.)
