For this contest, I want you to take the image below and create something with it. A story. A quote. A song. A poem. Any form of art you wish. Here is my example, it came to mind the first time I saw this picture:

As I jumped and skipped in the pouring rain, I knew people around me enjoying the sunny weather. All of them under their dimly lit umbrellas, seeing an imaged sunny day. You may not know but, the world has changed. It rains everyday without end. We’re lucky to see a sunny day. People started to complain, get lazy, and slow go into depression.  So, in response, scientists created an umbrella that creates an image the holder wishes to view. It was created for the greater good but also as an experiment. Everyone in the world received one of these ‘wondrous’ umbrellas. I did was well, and you would consider me an outlier in this experiment. I tried it and within the first second I threw it into the back of the closet. I didn’t need an umbrella to enjoy life. I could see it with my own eyes. Rain falls everyday, just like everyone’s hopes for a sunny day. I didn’t lose my hope, I never had to have hope. I had all I needed. A light, even if these clouds brought what everyone else saw as a darkness.

I never understood why, I still don’t. But, it doesn’t matter. Life can continue to pour down on me but I’ll never coward away. I’ll always stay out, taking anything and seeing it as a light. Even if no one else sees it.

That's just my example, I just want your response or thoughts to this picture in a form of art.

Go crazy! Have fun! Think Deep! IDK! Do what you do! :)

.

(If this goes well. I hope to do more Picture Responses later on :) Maybe I'll do Song Responses, *shrugs* idk :)  )

Artist of the masterpiece above is in this link.

K-POP and fiction? WHY NOT?
✪ Submission Closed

Sometimes inspirations for your writing may come from things you hear.

It could be just any kinds of sound you will hear in your life, but how about it is some popular song you hear on the streets, at school with your friends, at a cafe, or even through your earbuds from your iPod!

As a heavy music lover as well, I frequently thought of stories based on music, and mostly it was about thinking of a music video scenario for it all by myself. One day, when I was listening to one of BIGBANG [just to note: my all-time favorite K-pop group! Yup you can call me VIP haha :)]'s newest songs which were released in last year from my cell phone, one sparkling thought came into my mind....OH, WHAT ABOUT WRITING A STORY ABOUT THIS SONG....wait, HOW ABOUT WRITING A STORY FROM K-POP ITSELF?

Since I am a very busy person and cannot think of all stories from all songs from a single brain, I decided that I need your help and ideas in order to help me out completing this somewhat time-killing project-like thing into action. So, just come over and have fun with writing over any K-pop music you like even if you don't like K-pop:) And.....for you K-pop lovers over there.......come on! Don't be shy! Kill two birds with one stone by writing stories and listening to  your favorite team's song!

So everybody, these are the rules;

Who to write: Everyone who got ideas and love K-POP or anyone who just wants to write stories from new music!

What to write: ANY KINDS OF FICTION INSPIRED FROM A PARTICULAR K-POP SONG[I MEAN, REALLY ANY SONG AS LONG AS IT'S K-POP!].....or two, if you like:)

[Note: ALTHOUGH I settled the rating cutlines as PG-13, symbolic or metaphoric claims of sexuality, violence, or other 'adult' issues are okay!]

When to write : Any time from February 22  to March 7(GMT +9 Zone) [That gives you two weeks so I think that will be enough!]

How to win: Mainly based on choice of the organizer-that's me:)-but like counts will be considered! I just mentioned that I like BIGBANG, but it doesn't mean that I will only look for works done based on their song so don't worry! I am a quite fair person and you can guarantee:)

What you get if you win:

1st place- An audio-drama version of the winning story [which means that I will record your story and send it to you again] and held it on my Naver blog [address will be told later] with a Korean translation

2nd place- A story fan art of the winning story with a quote from the choice of the organizer written on the side

3rd place-  A word document version of the winning story with some pictures of your group attached as inserted pictures

Additional Good News: NO WORD COUNT PEOPLE! WRITE AS LONG AS YOU WANT!!

That's it. Enjoy your writing guys! I'll be happy to see all of your entries two weeks later:)
