Come yarn me a tale about a flawed character!
Not every woman is a buxom beauty with cascading, silken hair.
Not every man is a muscled, charming hunk.
People have flaws--and so should the characters in our stories.
Flaws can help bring a character to life.
Thus, we come to the purpose of this contest:
Every month I will prompt you to write a short story with a character that has a specific flaw.
The best stories showing how the character uses his or her flaw wins PRIZES!
Let's go over some pesky RULES:
Pen a new story for this contest
One entry per person per monthly prompt
Sorry, no poetry or essays allowed
Link your story using bitem format
Your story has a 2500 word limit
Post word count with your bitem link
Keep ratings 13+ or lower
Follow the prompt
Things to Remember:
Editing is allowed until the deadline.
Watch your P's and Q's.
Spelling and grammar will be nitpicked.
A story has a beginning
(with some sort of conflict)
and an end.
