Short Story

These dabbles would be things I had dreamed about. There are dreams that I’m in, dreams that I’m not. Though there are also times were I could control what would happen and dreams that I have no control over. But—most of the time, seeing these dreams is like watching a movie for me. They are so vivid that I could not help but write them down.

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!

Your task is to use what you see in the picture and write a short story.

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!
