Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome once more to the Penana Character Talent Show! Bring your best characters and put them to the test! Displays of grandeur and extreme skill are encouraged, but beware, the readers are your judge! Appeal to their curiosity and you may just take home first place, but display toomuch personality and you might just lose favor. The stage is yours...

In this contest, authors will write up an entry as to what your character's talent would be, should they ever enter a talent show! Get creative, and aim to please the audience! Here are the rules:

Authors:

-You may go into as much detail as you'd like about your character's act or talent, however, you may not describe the audience's reaction, as that will be the readers' jobs!

-Try to keep entries short enough to be no more than a 5 minute read.

-You may also react to other characters' entries, however, negative commentary and insults are not welcome! The entire point of this contest is to have fun, and salty people aren't fun. Encourage others to join and perform! :)

-Don't be afraid to use this as a way to promote your stories! You can shamelessly add a plug at the end of your entry to let readers know where they can find the rest of your character's adventure on your profile. :)

Readers:

-Your comments and likes will be the figurative reaction of the audience to the author's act. You are encouraged to display your enthusiasm through the comment section of each entry, and be sure to let the author know exactly how their act made the audience react! (Clapping, whistling, and standing ovations...yes!)

-If you enjoyed a particular act that you would like to see win, don't be afraid to recommend it or spread the word!

Write a flash story (between 100 and 1000 words long) based on the prompt below:

Your character has been wandering for...what seemed like ages now. A long, empty hallway leading apparently nowhere. On either side of them, dozens and dozens of doors. Unmarked. Unnamed. Indistinguishable from one another. When they finally do decide to open one up, they see a very peculiar scene. A memory. Long forgotten.

My intention was to have this be a chance to flesh out your original character's backstory, and give some perspective on a bad memory, an important memory, something like that! Do with it what you'd like!

Got something on your mind bothering you? Here's your chance to gather it all up and throw it to the page! Does even the tiniest, smallest, insignificant thing really get to you and you haven't been able to really talk about it with anyone? Go ahead! Write it out!

This can be on the most insignificant thing (like the fact that no one ever remembers to switch the loads of laundry around, don't even get me started) or it can be something personal and of a bit more value if you're comfortable with sharing it. It is up to you. But take this opportunity to get whatever might be bothering you off your chest. I ask all who participate and read consider this a safe environment. No judgement here, please.

Let's get all that pent up frustration out before the holiday season comes around!

This is more of an experiment than anything, but I'm curious to see how it goes.

The first contestant will be given a prompt. The goal is to complete the prompt and create a new one at the end of your submission for the next contestant. This is not a serial contest! The prompts and submissions don't have to have anything to do with each other. They can be three random words, or a line of dialogue, or a setting, character, and item. The prompt you create for the next person can be anything, but please keep all submission less than 500 words! I want to see how many people we can get to participate. :)

Like count will be the judging method for the winners!

First Prompt:

This was not at all what I imagined Hell to be like. Fire, brimstone, wails of the dead? Sure. But...this? This was just ridiculous.

How much do we REALLY know of ghosts? Few and/or a bit? Well, do you recall the movie "The Others" with Nicole Kidman in the main role?

Imagine you have the ability to see and communicate with ghosts, what would you do? Or the opposite, how is it to be a ghost? Cold and frightful or confused and agressive... (No matter how the ghosts are good or bad but keep the rate in PG-13 level.) You are also allowed to use historical facts that has inpired you or true experience.

(P. S. If you need ideas about ghosts check out the TV-series "Most Haunted" or "Supernatural".)
