Sometimes, the most important messages can be conveyed in only a few words. Sometimes, it's hard to find the words to use.Sometimes, you have too much to say.
This time, you only have fifteen words. Value them and write something meaningful (or something random and stupid is fine too. XP)
Silence is more destructive than weapons. It tears you apart on the inside without mercy.
For this contest, we'll be working together to create a short story! Each writer will pick up where the last person left off and keep writing.
I'll start things off:
"When one dares to dream, we project an impossible future. That is, until we act upon our dreams and make them actions."
Winston looked up from the scrawled note that had been shoved under his door. Dare to dream?He thought. There is nothing left in our nation to dream for. With our government, we have no hope of making any change.
The world is ending, things are falling apart around you. You turn to the person closest to you, be it your lover, friend, a family member or total stranger. In that moment, just before oblivion you mutter these words....
Basically, to sum up my dramatic opening, write a sentence or two of the things you would say if you knew your life (and the world)was about to end in a few moments time.
Try to make it as interesting as possible! It can be serious, funny or even just plain stupid. Have at it people! No more than one paragraph and three entries please~
Hey guys! This contest is going to be very different from the last one that I hosted!
I will begin the story and the last line, which will either be inbold,italicsor underlined will show were the next writer will pick up and resume.
Entries can be no longer than 200 words.And you cannot post two entries consecutively, with the maximum entry number being three.
When we reach ten entries, in the next five issues, we will need to try to wrap things up and tie up loose ends.
Best and most well written entry wins at my pick.
Hope that made sense?
I could feel her gaze upon me... With those thick, black, soulless eyes that always seemed to bore into my being; as if she knew what was going on inside my head.
Every story needs a good opening line or paragraph to begin with. For example some of my favourites include:
“One minute the teacher was talking about the Civil War. And the next minute he was gone.” –Goneby Michael Grant
“Newborn #485GA18M died on June 30, 2076, at 6:07 in the morning. She was three days old. The average lifespan of a human child, in the time since the break, was fifty-six hours.” –Partialsby Dan Wells
“The end of the world started when a pegasus landed on the hood of my car.”–The Last Olympianby Rick Riordan
“First the colors.Then the humans. That’s usually how I see things.Or at least, how I try.” -- The Book Thiefby Markus Zusak
"Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much." -- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling
All of these are great books that I highly recommend.
But now its your turn.
Make up a fake title for a book then write the opening first line or paragraph.
Nothing too excessive, the rating is PG.Characters from other books/movies can be used. But keep them in character please!Two entries per person.If you choose to write a paragraph rather than a sentence, please keep it within two.
Sounds easy? Hopefully it should be.
Additional note: I am going to be away for the next week, so when I get back I will read and comment on all the entries then!

Describe something, anything in anyway and let the people figure what the thing is in the comments. It can be super unfigurable or pretty simple. It can be funny or it can not be funny. It can be a few words or as many words as you want.
Tyler found himself attempting to catch his breath. After he realized that his breath was actually a homogeneous mixture of gasses, he realized catching it would be pointless. He was utterly Befuddled about that events that happened only moments before the moment that he currently found himself stuck in. The whiteness of the room he was now stuck in made the very definition of white seem awfully dark.
Although it was cold, hard, and terribly quiet, He found this white room to be adequately more pleasant than the english class he was previously stuck in. Though he was entirely unsure how he came to travel from the terrible english classroom, to the slightly less terrible white room.
He decided he would do something that wanted to try for a number of years. To go completely insane. He’s wondered why he hasn’t brought himself to doing this yet, because in his mind letting go of sanity seemed a rather pleasing experience.
Just as Tyler began talking to the voices that have always been whispering to him from his mind, he heard a sound.
“Which one of you did that” He angrily asked the voices in his head.
“I’m not sure” Said one of the voices whom Tyler had decided to name after his fish, Sean. Sean the voice was by far the most sarcastic voice in Tylers head, which Tyler thoroughly enjoyed. He was a rather amusing character tyler enjoyed listening too. Sean always had something interesting to say. At least Tyler assumed he did, though after all, he’d only started talking to sean a few moments ago.
Sean the voice had been named after sean the fish simply because that’s how Tyler saw him, as a fish. He had no idea why he imagined Sean as a fish. Perhaps it’s because that most sarcastic person he had known prior to talking to Sean the voice was Sean the fish. Sean the fish had always been extremely sarcastic. Every time tyler asked him to swim, sean swam. And due to His extreme boredom in life, Tyler thought that a swimming fish was the best thing that could ever happen to him.
A repetition of the noise made tyler think about what made him name the voice in his head in the first place.
“So you're positive that that wasn’t you right?” Tyler asked shawn.
“I think so… But I only know what you want me to know seeing as the fact that I am merely a figment of your imagination.”
“I see your point” Tyler said to sean.
The noise repeated.
“So um… How would you describe this noise that we recently heard?” asked tyler
The noise repeated
“I think it sound very much like the noise that we heard previously to the noise that we have heard recently”
Tyler never thought that his own mind could be so confusing
The noise repeated.
“It sounds copious.”
“I don’t know what that means” said sean.
“I don’t know what the sound means, therefore I used a acceptable adjective”
A door that Tyler had failed to notice existed suddenly opened.
“Welcome to the intergalactic insane asylum.”
In honor of October, Halloween, and unlucky thirteen, let's have a thirteen word story contest! I know. Six words is just few enough to make an oomph, and ten sounds too tame. But what about exactly thirteen? Sounds, haunting.
So, write a story with exactly thirteen words, no more, no less. Any genre, though darker themed ones usually work better, and rated PG-13 or less. If you're going to talk about more adult subject matter, it's time to get creative with those euphemisms.
Starting October 8, 2016, you'll have four weeks to make your masterpiece. Three entries per person, and exactly thirteen words each. Any more or less won't count towards badges (sorry, guys). Judging by ShadowBobcat10, the infamous (or not) sci-fi writer.
Now are you ready? Four weeks. Get. Set. GO!
Last Minute Clarification:Contractions count as one word. "It's" is one word. "Don't," and "we'll" are both one word. I'm noticing a few issues are missing one or two words due to contractions, so I just wanted to make that clear. Sorry for posting this so late.
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.
OK I am bored and I am likely to be bored later so I would like people to finish the following quote,
Lex the galaxy burn as we....
The quote can be finished however you see fit
Let the galaxy burn as we use the fire to cook popcorn
Winner will be chosen by me Hybrid Kitten the bored guy on the internet
Wha-What? That was a little sudden, right? I mean seriously. Hello random person on this random website, welcome to the Hello, we are going to talk about fandoms contest. Wha-What?
In this contest we write a entry about our favorite fandom characters, Percy Jackson, Lord of the rings, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, you name it!
Have your Character meet with another character(s) to go on a journey to save the world, for example: The Avengers meet with Gandalf and Percy Jackson to save their girlfriends... I don't care, I'd like it to be a little funny also. But there has to be a reason why they meet, Gandalf just can't pop up on earth can he? At least, I don't think so... who knows how many tricks Gandalf has down his sleeve.
For you who like poems, this is a great place for you.
Now you have to write a poem, just one. Minimal four rows, but if you want more than four rows, it's better. It can be any genre. You're free.
Make it creative.
You have two weeks for this. So, happy writing!! :)
