This irregular contest will change each round. Nature poem? Horror story? Whatever.

"Sorry Closed" image for the Whatever Contest
Closes at 11:59 pm WdC time on October 2, 2022

TIME UNTIL CONTEST CLOSES:  [Refresh to load countdown.]

This is a Whatever text image for my Whatever Contest.

Be sure to click the Plus button (computer's upper right corner) on this contest so you can find it again! *Wink*
Click until you see the megaphone. Sometimes I reward my contest's fans! *Bigsmile*

This contest will be different each time I post it--different genre, different prompt, different rules, different requirements, etc., depending on my mood and schedule. *Bigsmile*

It's best to click my Plus Sign (preferably twice) so you can easily keep up with me.
Schnujo is Late to Lannister *Left*
That way, when I advertise this contest, you will see it on your Newsfeed, assuming you are checking it around that time. *Wink*

If you see a Plus Sign by my name, that means you have not clicked it before. I recommend clicking it twice (for the megaphone) to become a Fan so you appear on my Fans list because occasionally I send all my fans GPs, MBs, whatever. *Wink*
Megaphones get mega bucks, but the finger with the string gets nothing.
megaphone = fan = 2 clicks vs. finger with string = favorite = 1 click


Multiple Prompts This Month

Prompt 1: Write a poem of any style up to 22 lines long. Must somehow relate to or include the number 22. Reward: 22K GPs
Prompt 2: Write a short story up to 222 words long. Must somehow relate to or include the number 22. Reward: 22k GPs
Prompt 3: Write a letter to your family asking them to send SM (StoryMaster, the site owner) a copy of your death certificate when the time comes so your portfolio can be preserved at the membership level it was when you passed away and so you can be memorialized and become a white case, forever remembered here on WdC. See the dropnote below for further details, including the address that it needs to be sent to. Rewards: 50k GPs
Note: If you did the letter to your family last year, you can resubmit it this year, after adding any updates, corrections, edits you want/need to make. Rewards: 22k GPs

More Info About the Letter to the Family

They require prose to be 1000 words or less. My hope is that there will be a couple of nominations from this round's contest. Below is the prompt for your copying pleasure.
