For September I want to hear about your first gift.



Hello and welcome to the Contest of Firsts!



Every month I am going to provide a prompt about a first time, whether it be riding your bike or your first kiss, I want to hear about it! I want to feel everything, the pain when you scrape your knee, the smell after you've created your first meal, the touch of someone's lips as they kiss you for the first time! Be creative and descriptive with your piece *Smile* I want to experience it the way you did!

A Contest of Firsts is now accepting fiction as well as non-fiction! When you check out the monthly prompt, if you can't quite remember your first, why not make one up and let me live it through your character?

After you've written your piece I want it posted in the forum and then I will judge the winners! Please use the {bitem: } link when posting your piece, let me know if you need any help with it!


*Giftb* The Prizes! *Giftb*

1st Place - Choice of two: Merit Badge, awardicon or 10,000 gps.

2nd Place - Choice of one: Merit Badge, Awardicon or 10,000gps.

3rd Place - 5,000 gps.
