Your character has been blind since birth. They have never seen the world before. An accident somehow gives them their sight back. (You don't need to obsess over the science behind them getting their sight back, it just happens).
What do they see when they first look at the world?
Do they marvel at the colors? Do they congratulate mankind for their art? Do they despise mankind for destroying the Earth? Are they surrounded by warmth and happiness or a cold and dark life? Was the accident that triggered their sight in the basement of the person that kidnapped them? Is the first thing they ever see the dark, rotting, horrifying, blood covered walls of the basement? Does jumping into the cold water of a lake trigger their sight somehow? Is the first thing they see the warm hues of color radiating from the sun and shining across the clear blue water?
Which of these questions will your story answer?
Your character's entire life has been a dream. Modern society, technology, political figures, government, art, everything in our lives is a lie. A dream that you're character came up with after being in a accident of some kind. A car accident? Attempted suicide? Attempted Murder? Medical problems? A disease not heard of in your character's dream society (our real life society)? Or any other event your imagination can conjure.
They wake up with no memory before their dream. Our real life society is all they know and remember, except that society isn't real.
How to they cope to their new/real life? What is the true 2019/2020 like? What is the government like? A dictatorship? How do people dress and look? What body modifications, piercings and tattoos do people have? Do we all have an identification number tattooed on us? What are the names like? Is your character's best friend names Balloon, Chair or Chicken-Little? How has language evolved? Do all continents speak one language? Have the continents drifted back into one supercontinent? Are the tribes on the supercontinent at war? What is your characters family situation? Do people have families? Are all humans created in labs and assigned to a random person across the world?
So many questions your magnificent writing can answer.
What if writer's block wasn't in your head? I know this prompt might seem strange, but just keep reading.
What if you were given a physical block that made you not be able to write? What if that block was going to explode in 2 minutes and you have to hand it to someone else before you're stuck with the block forever? Or what if writer's block is a disease that is infesting the writers of the world and your character has been infected and tries to overcome their illness? What if writer's block is a person that physically attacks you until you're not able to write?
The ideas are limitless and you get to decide which ones are worthy of your attention. Your only parameter is that writer's block has to be a physical thing or person or other. It just can't be completely mental.
99% of writers experience writer's block at some point in their career (It's not 100% because there's always that one person that denies that they're not perfect). It's a normal thing, I've definitely had my fair share. So, when you experience writer's block what do you visualize it as?
What would your character do for a cookie? Will they commit murder, lie, steal, start a fake romance or just ask? Or any of the millions of other possibilities. The choice is yours.
Do they commit the biggest sin on Earth and NOT LIKE COOKIES?!?! Will your character do nothing or everything for a cookie? How dedicated are they to cookies? What kind of cookies do they like of hate? Does it start raining cookies? Or is there is a global cookie shortage?
There are basically no parameters or boundaries to this contest, write what you want about cookies. You can use 1st, 2nd or 3rd person. Your character could be a captain at sea deprived of cookies or a greedy overlord hogging all the cookies or anything your heart desires. Use your imagination.
It is time for your characters to face their fears and overcome them! Or not.
Does your character cower away when faced with their greatest fear or do they confront it? Do they overcome their fear? How did they get this fear? Have they faced this fear before? Do others accept their fear and try to help them or are they shunned away because of their fear? Do people take advantage if their fear?
So many question that your story can answer. Your story doesn't even need to answer, leave your characters background or even current situation a mystery, if you want. Be creative and create anything you want that revolves around fear.

You are lost, in the middle of a dense forest that seems to spread further than the eye can see.
Who are you? Why are you there? How will you go home? What is home? What objects do you weild? Is there somebody with you? Is there a task you have to fulfil?
Show me your ideas!
Imagine that you / a character you made lives in a village or neighborhood near a forest. It is a mysterious forest that many people, over decades, seldom want to enter. Furthermore, there are legends about a creature (or creatures) that live in it. One day, the character decides to enter the woods for whatever reason (find a lost friend, hear about hidden treasure, etc. ) and runs into it/them, this mysterious creature(s).
Is it a grotesque monster, responsible for the disappearances of some of your neighbor's loved ones, or is it a benevolent wisp that only wants to help?
What happens to them? Does it change their way of life? Do they gain powers? Are they given a new purpose in life that fate has given them?
Above are just a few examples of the possible outcomes. You can make up your own! You are only limited to your imagination. This can be medieval or modern. This can be horror, fantasy, etc. whatever genre you feel comfortable writing with is fine.
You can write in either first or third person.
I can't wait to see what creative and fantastic pieces you all come up with!

Write a piece of writing that is inspired by the following:
'You fall in love with someone but you could not tell them, for a period of some years, as every time you tried to tell them the words just would not come partly out of being scared half to death that they might not love you back and partly because they have been with someone else since before you met them.
One Christmas, you somehow manage to get them alone with you under some miseltoe and you give them a kiss which gives you a brief but sweet taste of the one who you have spent so much time yearing to be in a romantic relationship with yet without having been able to confess your feelings for them. All, this begins to make you wonder if you will ever have the love of the one you love so very much.'
This can be written in first person or second person or third person.
The judging of this contest has been set to like count and will last twelve weeks from Monday 21st October 2019.
Have fun and good luck!
