WRITING CHALLENGE CONTEST

JULY

Prompt:

I am an endangered species

But I sing no victim's song

I am a woman I am an artist

And I know where my voice belongs

I know where my soul belongs

I know where I belong

-Dianne Reeves, 'Endangered Species'

Prompt given by last month's winner: Nesasio


Registration:

In your registration post, state that you wish to participate and that you will review the winner. When you have finished your piece, edit the link into the post. Also say what you would like to have reviewed, should you win.

Remember, even though there must be a connection between your submitted piece and the prompt, you need not make "obvious" connections. The prompt is meant to inspire.

Registrations and submissions have now started! Edit in the link to your piece in your registration post once it has been created. You can register and submit your work until the end of the 7th (midnight EST). Remember, one piece per person! We accept both poetry (500 word limit) and stories (2,000 word limit).

*Due to low participation, we may be willing to give extensions on the deadline to no later than the 9th (midnight EST).

If you have any preference on what you want reviewed if you win, write that into your registration post.

It is okay to promote voting through author note or your profile.

If you have any questions, ask at Problems/Questions.

If you find bumps on your way, you can go to Help with your writing and get help there.

Otherwise, Resources for Writing has some nifty links to help you along with uncertain areas.

Also, don't forget to read the first page for all additional rules!

I'll agree to an extension if Shampoo Suicide agrees.

I think it's only fair if everyone does, heh.

I agree that all participants should agree. Thanks for saying that, Lie Ono! :) And (obviously) I agree to an extension. What do you think, Nads? Potter? Sica?

Hey guys! Sorry sorry - I am literally in the middle of nowhere Nebraska for a family reunion right now, haha!

I would loooove if we could extend until Monday, so I'm just going to make an executive decision to close voting at midnight this Monday (11:59pm).

HOPE EVERYONE IS OKAY WITH THAT! ;D (I also wanted to enter and have not had the time like I thought I would, so heh. We will make it work!)

When you have reviewed in accordance to the review requirements, I will check you off the list. PM me what piece you reviewed (and if it has several chapters - what chapter). Don't just say "I reviewed," because I need to check the validity of your review before you're checked off.

Hey thanks everyone! This was a really fun WCC. Nesasio, thanks for the prompt! :)

I feel honored because all the entries were really strong, intriguing and quite different. It seems like 'I am an endangered species' and 'I sing no victim's song' and 'I know where my soul belongs' were the most inspirational lines.

Well, since I failed to indicate earlier what I'd like reviewed, just want to let everyone know that reviews of The Women would be great, but if you have already reviewed that (or prefer to review one of my other pieces) reviews of either Loreley Island or The Queen of the Dawn are fine. If you have not read Loreley or The Queen of the Dawn before, please start with Chapter 1, the stories will not make sense otherwise. :)

Feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions.

Thanks again!
