Ok this is Comrade, new judge, little nervous, not really, best idea, got it? Here's the subject, something has invaded your country/continent/world. This foe could have already enslaved you, it could be in the mist of battle, I don't know, you figure it out.
Now I bet the first thought in your head could be, "top warrior, ultimate power, badass." But maybe it doesn't have to be like that, the character could be powerless, he could be afraid, or he could have no emotion. Now without further a do, let the battle begin!
Wow what, what's a feral warrior, what's a feral you might ask...Google it. That's right, you're not gonna get your info here, don't even ask because I'm not even flapping my lips to tell you the meaning.
Ok fine geez!!! Don't nag me about it mom!! Feral means a child with a wild animal mindset. And also lives in the wild golly!!!
Ok here's the contest. You're gonna make a short story or poem about a feral child looking at civilization for the first time. The land could be made up or it could be Europe or something. The species that adopted him could be made up too.
Kinda; kinda new here but that doesn't matter because you know what I am a warrior! Metaphorically though. Ok so here it is, you are gonna write a short story about science fiction or fantasy, the plot has to be creative, and writing style also has to be creative.
Be descriptive, make it badass, and make it readable.
Ever thought of how cool it is to have different people write a cool, awesome story?
In this one, someone will start it off with whatever they choose. The next person will follow up with an entry following the previous post, and so on. Your job is to continue where the previous person left off until the end.
There will be no real judgement. Everyone gets points for participation!
The power is yours!
The sky's the limit!
At the end of the contest, everyone's entries will be featured in a story. Hey, you can vote on the title!
There is no assigned plot, so the adventure is yours!
Simple! This is a contest to help you with your descriptive writing! All you have to do is describe a garden or urban area as best as you can! I'll decide which I believe is the most descriptive. Good luck and have fun!
Are you funny? I think you are. Make up a joke, a one-liner, a shaggy-dog joke, a pun, anything. As long as it's funny, it'll work. Literally as many entries as can physically and mental pour out of your brain. Now, I don't get to judge this time. The community judges, so even if you're not funny, spread a few likes around. Are you ready? Get cracking.
After the contest is over and a winner has been determined by the community, I will pick my top three to be featured in Stupid Cruel Jokes.
Write a Six-word story.
Here is an example from Ernest Hemingway:
"For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn."
Unleash your creativity under the 6-word limit!
The prompt for this contest is the cover. Tell the story behind the picture in the cover(here's the link). The prize will be the same as the one for Hitting Zero.Major promotion for a story of your choice. There's not much else I can say. Get writing!
Hello, all! For this contest, each contender must describe themselves from the point of view of an alien (a.k.a., ET)! Good luck. :)
Start out with this sentence.

You clicked didn't you.
I would, I'm curious like that. In fact I'll probably browse the contests and still take a look because well - the heading told me too.
This may be the very last one my ladies and gentlemen! My heroes, competitors, my warriors and knights!
What is the prompt you ask?
"Into the woods."
Are you playing with the pixies or playing as children up trees? Are you fighting in a battle so intense it stains bark red? Are you hiding? Going on a date? Staring up at the stars? Murder?
So many things can happen in the woods! For a moment or a lifetime it is up to the authors of daring characters to play in the woods!
Any length and time setting... it is the last one after all. Make it count!
AND GUESS WHAT?!?!
Penana loves us! But you already knew that.
Yes, you read that correctly. Penana is giving the winner a postcard with this theme upon it. You're gonna have to win it because I can't - so do your best!
So many can get in on this opportunity I have given you all THREE WEEKS! Ages I know! But there it is. Don't forget to enter though - time is deceiving.
And most of all - have fun entering and reading each other's stories. Like count is always considered.
