Hello! I'm back again for another contest. This time around, the contest is inspired by different time periods within history. Be it England during the Victorian Era, the Ming Dynasty in China, history has aided our world into what it is today.
For this contest, I want to see a creative story within different time periods, it doesn't matter what it is. The only thing is that it cannot be after the year 1980 (though there is an exception for time travel stories). The point of the contest is to expand your mind to think in a time period you are unfamiliar with and make me believe you actually lived in that time period.
Word limit: 2,500 minimum and 3500 words maximum
Please provide music or image of your chosen time period!
I look forward to reading your entries! <3
Hello everyone! I've been thinking about doing this contest for a while now. Basically, what I want you to do is write a short story based off your favorite piece of music. It can be any genre of music, it doesn't matter. Sophia and I will be judging you based on character, plot, grammar, and creativity. Wow us with your musical stories!
1. Word limit: 1500-2000 words
2. It must be based on music.
3. Write a paragraph at the end of your story detailing why you chose that song/piece for your short story.
4. One entry only. Repeat entries will result in disqualification. No exceptions. Let's give everyone a fair chance :-)
5. Nothing too offensive. No blood, no gore. Let's try to keep it as clean as possible.
Have fun! <3
Write about a character who is stuck with a mental disability, any kind, and try to picture them as vivid as you can about how they go on with their lives. It must focus more on their disabilities, and not the characters around them. How you describe the story is all up to you. Is it a positive story? Is it a negative story?
What do you think about when you listen to a classical piece? Where does your mind wander and what is the message you extract from the song? I am curious to see just what people imagine when listening to a certain piece.
Insert the link towards the classical song that you have chosen and write a short story inspired by it. Let's encourage more people to listen to classical music!
Write a poem or anything you want but it can only contain 10 words, no more and no less. You can make it sad, happy, informal, funny or whatever you please. Literacy and spelling do not count against your chance of winning the contest, I base the winner off of how well their work captivates me or how good it is written or worded. Try your best, their are no losers, i'll love all your poems even if I don't choose you as a winner. Good luck! <3
Okay, so here's my contest for the month of September. Write a three-sentence story (beginning, middle, climax) about anything. It can be be of any genre, but it must be appropriate (PG).
Remember, cannot be more than three sentences.
You are limited to three entries per account, so post wisely. Thanks!!! Hope you enjoy.
Retell a story.
Or, if that's not your type, write romance or fantasy.
Tip: if you decide to retell a story, like Snow White or something, try writing it based on the villain's point of view to make it more interesting.
Important: it must start with "Once upon a time".
No word limit.
No entry limit.
Please do enter!

When I look into the mirror, I see...
Remember to have fun! 1-3 sentences maximum:)
Rewrite a story in any genre! I want to hear your version of a story you've grown up hearing or just thought was interesting! It can be a fairytale/folktale, a ballet, a song, or any other type of story you can think of!
Edit: Since I've recieved 4 questions about what is acceptable source material within the last 24 hours, I just want to make it super, extremelyclear that you can write about anything you want. Anything at all. Only rule is that it has to be a retelling of something. Your options are practically limitless. :)
1.Please refrain from retelling any well-known Grimm/Perault stories: Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow white, etc.
2.Word Count is unlimited! Go nuts!
3.I set the rating at PG-13, but as long as you don't go overboard, I really couldn't care less what you decide to put in your story. You're the writer, after all!
4. Any format is accepted too. Poems, short stories, anything.
The three winners will get a secret prize sent to them!
Most importantly, be creative and have fun! ;)
Have you ever seen an amazing word in the dictionary which just makes you smile? Time to share it with Penana with the words definition.
The word can be in any language but if it isn't, could you give a translation please!
Also, if you want, you could make up an amazing word! Just please indicate this and put the meaning you would give to your word with it!
Write your entry using one of the titles and themes given below. Whatever the title reminds you of is what you can write.
All of the titles given were ideas I had for stories that I won't ever write. All of the themes given belong to the stories. Your entry won't be judged on if you interpreted the title similarly to my ideas, but rather how well you used what you were given to write a good, well-written story.
*must be 800-3,000 words
*no profanity, extreme sensuality, or overwhelming horror
*no more than one entry per person
*a title and/or theme (including same combinations) can be used more than once by different people.
*you can pick only one title and only one theme. (note: your story can contain different themes, but the main theme must be the one you choose.)
*Only a Piece of Cake
*Super Secret Agents
*The Emerald Dragon Queen
Judging factors -
*creative use of elements given
*ability to create interest
*how well your story fit the theme/title
