Pick one of the five senses (sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste) and write a short story describing everything almost exclusively with that sense.

(I don't know if this has been done before or not, but this is my first contest, and I hope to see plenty of creativity here.)

So I know personally that making magic systems is my favorite part of writing fantasy. So I thought I'd share the inspiration. All you have to do is create a magic system for any world. It could be our world or any fantasy world you created. It could be based in the four elements, on emotion, or really anything. Just really get creative and have fun with it. Describe how your magic system functions and answer some basic questions like:

-Who can use magic? Are they called witches, warlocks, what?

-How is it used? and for what purpose?

-Where does it come from? What's the source of the Magic?

-What are people's reaction to magic? Is it outlawed? Is it used in daily life?

Of course you don't have to answer all these questions( unless you want to). There just dare to get ideas rolling in your head. So yeah, really just have fun. I'm sure they'll be great.

Sometimes inspirations for your writing may come from things you hear.

It could be just any kinds of sound you will hear in your life, but how about it is some popular song you hear on the streets, at school with your friends, at a cafe, or even through your earbuds from your iPod!

As a heavy music lover as well, I frequently thought of stories based on music, and mostly it was about thinking of a music video scenario for it all by myself. One day, when I was listening to one of BIGBANG [just to note: my all-time favorite K-pop group! Yup you can call me VIP haha :)]'s newest songs which were released in last year from my cell phone, one sparkling thought came into my mind....OH, WHAT ABOUT WRITING A STORY ABOUT THIS SONG....wait, HOW ABOUT WRITING A STORY FROM K-POP ITSELF?

Since I am a very busy person and cannot think of all stories from all songs from a single brain, I decided that I need your help and ideas in order to help me out completing this somewhat time-killing project-like thing into action. So, just come over and have fun with writing over any K-pop music you like even if you don't like K-pop:) And.....for you K-pop lovers over there.......come on! Don't be shy! Kill two birds with one stone by writing stories and listening to  your favorite team's song!

So everybody, these are the rules;

Who to write: Everyone who got ideas and love K-POP or anyone who just wants to write stories from new music!

What to write: ANY KINDS OF FICTION INSPIRED FROM A PARTICULAR K-POP SONG[I MEAN, REALLY ANY SONG AS LONG AS IT'S K-POP!].....or two, if you like:)

[Note: ALTHOUGH I settled the rating cutlines as PG-13, symbolic or metaphoric claims of sexuality, violence, or other 'adult' issues are okay!]

When to write : Any time from February 22  to March 7(GMT +9 Zone) [That gives you two weeks so I think that will be enough!]

How to win: Mainly based on choice of the organizer-that's me:)-but like counts will be considered! I just mentioned that I like BIGBANG, but it doesn't mean that I will only look for works done based on their song so don't worry! I am a quite fair person and you can guarantee:)

What you get if you win:

1st place- An audio-drama version of the winning story [which means that I will record your story and send it to you again] and held it on my Naver blog [address will be told later] with a Korean translation

2nd place- A story fan art of the winning story with a quote from the choice of the organizer written on the side

3rd place-  A word document version of the winning story with some pictures of your group attached as inserted pictures

Additional Good News: NO WORD COUNT PEOPLE! WRITE AS LONG AS YOU WANT!!

That's it. Enjoy your writing guys! I'll be happy to see all of your entries two weeks later:)
