Hey everyone! This is something I've been wanting to do based on a writing exercise I got in college.

Take an ordinary, everyday object (mine was a chair), and describe it in a specific tone (like horror, whimsy, comedy, etc.). I'll let you guys choose the object and tone, or I can assign them if you get stuck for ideas.

Try to keep it short, and please let me know which object and tone you're describing in the title or under the description.

Winners will be picked based on how well they make the ordinary seem extraordinary!

Good luck! :)

What scares you the most? Is it the dark, or perhaps death itself? Well why not write about it?

In this contest, you can either write a horror (or scary) story or fanfic based on your favourite movie or you can  either write something based off of what scares you.

Enjoy, and have fun!

Do You Believe In Magic?

Fantasy lovers, this is for you! Magic doesn't work the same way in every fantasy story and can be implemented differently. I want you to come up with a system of how magic works in a fantasy setting. Simply knowing the words of an incantation can be a baseline if you want, but I'll need more details. Here are some things to cover.

1. Where/when did magic originate? Was there a certain time period or event it was traced to, or has it always existed?

2. Must people be born with magic or can anyone do it?

3. Are symbols, objects, or certain actions needed to do magic?

4. What is the source of magical power? It can be unknown or uncertain.

5. Types or classiciations of magic.

Any other relevant information including if there are schools for magic, are there restrictions on who or where it can be used, how often can it be used, etc.

The more creative and in-depth the better. Most importantly, have fun!

Hello everyone! I'm back with a new blood-curling contest for y'all!

So this is it, huh?

You're a serial killer. To get away with it, you kill only once a year. On Halloween. When people run around covered in fake blood.

Yep! That. Is. It. Go ahead and churn up some good, bedtime story with it. (Kidding!) It should make my toes curl and haunt me for a day or two.

A few things to note:

1. Word limit : not more than 4000 words. Thanks.

2. Feel free to go weird 'cause I ain't your mama!

3. Please do not involve another killer. You go solo.

4. Love you guys so much. (NO not to be included in the story.)

I want you to describe yourselves as poetically and profoundly as possible. It doesn't have to necessarily be in the form of a poem, you can write it however you like. Here's an example:

"All the stars were filled with jealousy as they reflected from the dark abyss shining in my eyes."

Do whatever you please! I can't wait to read them!

There are seven deadly sins, choose a sin and write about it.  You can create a character or any representation of the sin, but it must creatively and effectively communicate and portray that sin.

There is Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride.

I'm really looking for the creative edge in these entries, guys!  I'm hoping to find new and interesting interpretations of the sins, not just the surface meaning.  For example, people can lust for something other than sexual desire (since lust is simply desire in general); people can be greedy for things that are not materialistic; people can be wrathful but passive-aggressive or simply broody.  See what I mean?  Really dig deep into the word and find a way to represent it.  Again, I'm looking for creativity!

Have fun and good luck,

LovelySheree

Example entry: Lust

This is to show a more abstract grip of what one of the seven deadlys can mean.  I chose "Lust.".  Entries can be longer, include a short story and dialogue, or have much more involved, or it can be simple like this.  It's up to you!

I always seek out a challenge, although, on first appearance, I'm not a challenging person.  I take my challenges inside my head, constantly thinking about self-improvement or any form of maximization.  They go unnoticed.  For someone who's constantly doing something, I look fairly laid-back and slow-moving; yet everything spins in my head as I figure out way after way of getting around, going over, or going through any and every situation.  I am always looking for a new challenge.  Always looking for what's next.

If someone says "good job," I may agree, but I know that it could've been better.  Anything can be better.  Everything should be better.  I should be better.  And that is the ultimate challenge is it not?  To strive to be the best?  And perhaps not for self-glory but at least the satisfaction of it?

I fear the day I cannot improve anything.  I fear that I will wither up.  That my strength will slowly diminish and I will become dust.  Purposeless.  And out of this fear drives this unending need to do.A need to gain.A need to advance.  If ever I reach the end, I pray my time will already be up.
