    Jay Ellis
    Hello, my name is Jay Ellis. I am a stay-at-home dad who works part-time in security. I am currently writing a series called The Bridging World. It will be a collection of short novellas that, once complete, I will be turning into a 3d audiobook. A proof of concept of this idea can be found in the first chapter. Other places you can find me: YouTube (where I post videos of whatever I feel like): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCD5exh3CFp8XNyAVabRd_0Q/featured Soundcloud (where I post music I compose): https://soundcloud.com/mrhobbyistguy Itch.io (where I post game projects I have made): https://mr-hobbyist-games.itch.io/ Instagram (where I post artwork and other stuff I have made): https://www.instagram.com/mrhobbyistguy/?hl=en

PROMPT:

I want you to write an engaging, short story about a single rock. Take any approach you want. Be creative! All genres welcome.


DESCRIPTION:

I want to test how creative you all are. I am borrowing a writing challenge posed to me during a Creative Writing course I took in college. The idea is to take a single, seemingly non-interesting object, and try to transform it into something that is exciting and engaging. It forces you to really dig into your imagination and think outside the box. I think you'll be surprised by how fun of a writing exercise this can be. The winner will be determined by who I believe writes the most interesting story. Have fun!


RULES:

- Nothing sexual is permitted. I do not care for it, and I will not tolerate it. Any entries that contain this will be deleted.

- Try to avoid using too much harsh language. I do not mind mild use of harsh language to accentuate an important point, but I cannot stand reading through "F" bombs.

- Violence is allowed, but if you decide to go graphic, you must put a warning at the top of your entry. This is to respect those who would rather not read that kind of content. Violators will have their entry removed.

- I've given this contest a month, so please use that extra time to polish your writing. Really focus on your spelling, formatting, and grammar. Remember, whether you win or not, this is a chance to showcase your writing skills and potentially gain more exposure and reads on your own personal projects.

- Once again, all genres are welcome.

- Last of all, have fun! No point in doing it if you aren't having fun. :)
