    Hey :) This is the writing profile of me. I’m Alice, I’m 22 years old and from England. I’ve been writing online since 2012 first on Wattpad and now Penana. I’m a Business Studies student and volunteer in a charity bookshop, as well as review books on the side and sometimes write. I’m neurodiverse and have documented my life journey extensively on this platform with two memoirs (third to follow in 2020!) and poetry/prose to bring my ideas to life. Thanks for following and supporting me! You can find me on Instagram at www.instagram.com/alicetiedthebookishknot

The Picture Prompt Challenge

Hello writers!

I am Alice and after the success of the first writing contest that I hosted here on Penana, I'm back for contest number two! This time, I will be sharing a picture here, which is your writing prompt. Your task is to use what you see in the picture and write a short story. It can be any genre, reading age that you like but would be handy if any trigger warnings were mentioned somewhere in your entry.

Without further ado, here is the prompt for the challenge!:

Shadow, Girl, Butterfly, Silhouette, Window


- Your entry must be between 500-3000 words long, not shorter, not longer

- Entries must be written in English

- Please state the total word count of your entry somewhere in your entry

- Spelling, Grammar will be judged. I am the judge for this challenge and decisions are final

- OPTIONAL BUT MUCH APPRECIATED: It would be lovely if you could follow me here on Penana, to show your support for future writing contests I plan to host in due course. 

You have exactly one month from now until entries will close. Submissions after that time won't be accepted. Only one entry per user.

Good luck!

Alice x
