The greatest writing challenge on WDC — RESULTS POSTED!



Welcome to the WDC BIRTHDAY 2018 round of THE PINK FLUFFY UNICORN CONTEST *Unicorn* , a bi-annual contest hosted by Schnujo Ho Ho Ho , Sand Castles Shopgirl 739 and Robert Edward Baker .

For many millennia, Pink Fluffy Unicorns have hidden behind rainbows while working their marvelous magic upon our mundane plane, bringing pink, fluffy dreams to countless children but striking dread into the hearts of evil wrongdoers. Now it's our turn to do something in return for our pink and fluffy friends. Let's show them some literary lovin'.

WritingDotCom is an awesome place, and we have all made some truly fantastic friends here. During the WDC BIRTHDAY month of September, the Pink Fluffy Unicorns challenge you to write the best story possible about Unicorn(s) and ONE of your special WDC friends!

If you don't want to write a unicorn story, don't despair. Your story doesn't actually have to be about unicorns, but they must be clearly involved in some way. For example, is a poor girl found murdered in a dark alley and the only clue to her identity is an unusual unicorn tattoo? Perhaps an archaeologist has uncovered an Ancient Greek statue of a unicorn in an Inca temple in South America, prompting a huge row over whether there was actually trade between the continents in the distant pre-Columbian past.

The connection between your friend and a unicorn may be as subtle and inconsequential as that in this example story: "Samantha's Pet. It's your story, so write whatever kind of plot floats your cloud, so long as the story features one of your WDC friends.

We are accepting submissions in two categories: SHORT STORY and FLASH FICTION.

You can write any kind of story you want, so long as Unicorn(s) and a specified and linked friend of yours from WDC are clearly somehow significant within the story. While the theme, tone and genre you choose are completely your choices, there are rules. *Bigsmile*


Only ONE entry per member, which must be:

1) A fictional story — either SHORT STORY (1000-2000 WORDS) or FLASH FICTION (999 WORDS OR LESS).
2) Your own work.
3) Newly written for this contest.
4) Rated 18+ or below.
5) A maximum of 2,000 words for SHORT STORIES or 999 words for FLASH FICTION. Please include a word count below your story in your static item.
6) Any genre so long as Unicorn(s) *Unicorn* *Unicorn2* and your friend from WDC are clearly significant within your story and your friend is linked.
7) You don't have to use the word “Unicorn” within the chapter, but if there's no obvious connection to, or mention of, Unicorn(s) then you won't win.
8) Imaginative use of color, a unique and relevant cover image, and/or emoticons to promote your chapter is not mandatory but may enhance your chances of winning.
9) Posted as a static item in your port and linked to this contest forum using a {bitem:XXXXXXXX} link BEFORE the deadline. If you don't know how to create a Bitem Link, check out: "Newbie Hyperlinking 101 - Bitem Format and if you're still unsure after that, you can watch this video: "Quick Vid - Create a "Bitem" Link
10) When you post your entry to this forum, please use a message title of either “SHORT STORY ENTRY” or “FLASH FICTION ENTRY”.

11) IMPORTANT!!! It is very possible that your story may offend the member you have chosen to showcase in your story. For that reason, please gain permission from the member you write about to include them in your story and then prove this by getting them to "LIKE" your entry post in the contest forum. If the member you have written about does not "LIKE" your contest entry, it will not be eligible to win a prize.

12) No editing after the deadline, which for this round is Midnight WDC time on SUNDAY 30st SEPTEMBER, 2018. You may edit as much as your pink, fluffy heart desires up until that time.
13) Results will be posted on or around 15th October 2018.

And why should you enter? Well…

Once you've entered AND your submission has been accepted as complying with the contest rules, then you will become eligible to collect our exclusive Pink Fluffy Unicorns Love WDC Trinket! *Unicorn*
