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:

*Police* Pen a new story for this contest

*Police* One entry per person per monthly prompt

*Police* Sorry, no poetry or essays allowed

*Police* Link your story using bitem format

*Police* Your story has a 2500 word limit

*Police* Post word count with your bitem link

*Police* Keep ratings 13+ or lower

*Police* Follow the prompt



Things to Remember:
*Brain* Editing is allowed until the deadline.

*Brain* Watch your P's and Q's.
Spelling and grammar will be nitpicked.

*Brain* A story has a beginning
a middle
(with some sort of conflict)
and an end.



*TrophyG* PRIZES! *TrophyG*

First Place:
Leadership Merit Badge & 10,000 GP's

Second Place:
5,000 GP's
