Pick a prompt. Pick a genre. Submit a story by the last Wednesday of the month.
I love reading short stories. I can't get enough of them.
This is an easy contest. On the first day each month, I'll post two short prompts. Sometimes they will be quotes, other times photos, or songs, or even paintings. I might mix things up and have a quote for one prompt and a photo for the other. I'll also suggest three genres. To enter,
choose a prompt and a genre from the lists below;
write a short story based on the prompt and in the genre you select; and, finally,
post a link to your story here, in the message forum.
Each month, I'll give a merit badge to the author of the story I like best, provided I get at least three stories to read. If I like two or more stories a lot, I'll give more than one merit badge. The story itself also gets an awardicon.
These are the prompts for the AUGUST, 2019 round of submissions.
Use this quote
Don't let yesterday take up too much of today.
OR use this song as your prompt:
Over the Rainbow/Wonderful World
Pick a gnere
Thank you for the donations that help make this contest possible..
While authors submitted interesting stories, alas, not very many authors did so. I reluctantly conclude this is a failed concept.
