A contest for those who deviate from societal norms in their story writing.


A big thank you to Cinn for the lovely blue ribbon that adorns this contest.


“I discovered that if one looks a little closer at this beautiful world,
there are always red ants underneath.”-- David Lynch


         I have always had a preference for writings, movies, and art that deviate from the norms of thought, sometimes verging on strange. So for this contest, I challenge you to step outside of conforming to society's rules of correctness. Horror, dark satire, and romance with a dark or demented twist are a plus in this contest.




*Bug* Accepting short stories only.
*Bug* Accepting fiction only.
*Bug* Your story must be newly written for this contest and follow the monthly prompt.
*Bug* Stories must be between 500-3000 words in length.
*Bug* Ratings of stories may be up to XGC.
*Bug* Accepting all genres except for children's and erotica. The writing may contain some erotica, but it may not be the overall plot.
*Bug* I will not accept writings advocating sexual assault, pedophilia, scat, or racism.
*Bug* You may submit up to two stories.
*Bug* Entry must be submitted in bitem or entry format (if you aren't sure how refer to "Linking Help And Practice for directions)
*Bug* Editing is allowed after entry has been submitted.
*Bug* Contest start date begins May1st at 12:01 a.m. and ends at 11:59 p.m. on the last day of June.
*Bug* Do not expect a review of your writing if you submit a story. My goal is to choose a winner of the contest by the 15th. If time allows, I may choose to review your story, but it is not promised

*Bug* I plan to offer a choice of three different prompts each round. You may use one prompt, or if you are really adventurous, you may choose more than one prompt for each of your entries.


*RibbonB* Prizes *RibbonB*


1st place -25K ribbon and Distorted Minds merit badge (3 or more entries)
2nd place -10k ribbon and Distorted Minds merit badge(5 or more entries)
