Terkadang kita tidak dapat memahami mengapa hati terasa hampa walaupun hidup yang kita inginkan sudah ada dalam genggaman, terkadang ada pertanyaan yang tak mampu terjawab oleh nalar pikiran manusia, terkadang ada kekecewaan yang tak berbatas yang takkan mampu untuk dihilangkan dalam sekejap mata.

The rules to this competition and the duration is short and sweet because I'll be going overseas very soon!

- 500 words max

- The theme is omens

- Can be a poem or a short story, up to you

Maybe the omen is for dark times ahead or one of hope, this literary tool of the occult and Shakespeare is unpredictable as it is untrustworthy. Good luck everyone.

My story began upon my birth, whilst my carers story began in 1968. I was an orphan child adopted by the strongest person, i will ever know. 

Its like they say, 'what you give is what you get'. What you think is what you will feel. Appreciation is supposed to be not only be received but given.  The feuding sides can never align. It's like Earth and Mars together forever. That doesn't happen does it? Exactly.

When two don't see eye to eye, chaos erupts. What's brought along with it, well that is the question, isn't it?

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!

Alice x
