OCTOBER CONTEST: 10-Sentence Horror Stories

Well, since it is the month of October, this contest is obviously Halloween-based. The object of the contest is to write a horror story using only fifteen sentences. MUST BE TEN SENTENCES - not any shorter.

Also, make sure to title your entry, so I know what the entry is about before reading it. It kind of spices things up a little bit. The rating of this contest is PG-13, because I know some of us like to put a bit of gore into our stories when it comes to horror, so no HOLDING BACK.

I will pick the winner based on how good of a horror story it is. Remember a story is BEGINNING/MIDDLE/END. Hope that helps.

Well, have fun!!!! Enjoy!!!!! :)

Hello writers!

My name is Alice and welcome to my first ever contest I'm hosting here on Penana! I hope to start running monthly writing contests here in the future, should this contest go well. To be notified of new updates, feel free to follow my account here!

This is The First Sentence Challenge! How this works is I give you all the first sentence, which you must use as the first sentence in your entries. It is then up to you to write whatever you want. Whether it is a spooky story, a love story, anything! This contest will be open for entries for three weeks and only one entry per writer is accepted! I will be the sole judge for this contest, here is what I'm looking for:

- Characters that are relatable

- Story-lines that are creative

- Good plot twists that I personally wouldn't have seen coming

- Good use of correct spelling and grammar

RULES:

Entries must be written in English!

No gore, violence or erotica accepted!

Swearing must be kept to a minimum!

Word Count: 500-3,000 words (would be really handy if you disclaim somewhere in your entry the total word count!)

There will be a first, second and third place entry. You are more than welcome to read and comment on other entries submitted. You may edit your entry up until the closing date. After the closing date, you won't be allowed to edit. Judge's decision is final.

The First Sentence is: 'When the door slammed, I had to run.'

Thanks again for stopping by. If you have any questions, feel free to DM me or comment here and I'll get back to you as quick as I can!

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!:

RULES:

- 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!
