I Challenge You... To Write A Story!
"Words don't exist so that we can tell the truth; they exist so that we can
conceal the truth."
Everyone has a talent to write, whether they believe so or not. Though their
strengths may lie in technical correctness, imagination, broad vocabulary or deep
insight into the chosen topic, anyone can produce words of meaning.
Thus, a competition. Just for fun, if you will, because, to me, words are the
greatest tool of expression.
I'm looking for the greatest writer on Kupika, someone with flair and originality,
someone who stands out above the rest. All you need to do is write, about whatever
you feel like, about whatever crosses your mind at that fleeting moment in time.
But, then again, a twist is always fun! I have included a list of twenty five brief
prompts, one of which you must use as the basis for each entry you submit. This tests
the skill of the writer, the ability to understand the words as if they are their
own, but it can also be comforting, knowing that you have an objective and a
Writing should not be chore; what are you waiting for?
>> Up to three pieces may be submitted per person.
>> No piece may be idenitcal to another.
>> Plagerism is forbidden, no copying from other works.
>> Pieces may be of any chosen length, though less than 5000 words is recommended.
>> Pieces may be on any topic, as long as sensitive subjects are handled with
>> Each piece must be based on one "title" from the prompts list below.
The number of participants will be unlimited. When you have finished your piece,
please comment here with a link (such as to a diary, a webpage or FictionPress), or
add it as an attachment to a letter. All entries will be judged impartially, with
personal taste disregarded by the judges.
The winning entry will receive 100 KP and a pat on the back. Possibily more,
but I haven't decided yet.
The deadline for all pieces wishing to be judged in February 4th.
