WRITING CHALLENGE CONTEST

OCTOBER

Time to be scary!

Prompt:

"You think dark is just one color, but it ain't. There're five or six kinds of black. Some silky, some woolly. Some just empty. Some like fingers. And it don't stay still. It moves and changes from one kind of black to another. Saying something is pitch black is like saying something is green. What kind of green? Green like my bottles? Green like a grasshopper? Green like a cucumber, lettuce, or green like the sky is just before it breaks loose to storm? Well, night black is the same way. May as well be a rainbow."

From Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison

Prompt given by last month's winner: Dr. Self Destruct


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 will enter a story for this month's contest!

I have read the rules and will review the winner with an in depth review!

Entry: Louis Denver

Should I be lucky enough to win I would prefer reviews for my completed stories, apart from this one-shot here.

I'm in, have read the rules, and will review the winner. Yeagh, that deadline is close.

Cashmere Black (2049 words. I will still review and give feedback on other entries if this disqualifies me.)

Question: how hard is the 2k word limit? I'm about 100 words over.

I'm sliding in before the deadline, have read the rules and will review the winner.

My entry: Abercombie Street (sorry people who know the street and walk on it twice a day!)

If I win, I'd like reviews on any of my poetry collections, or Shots of Photogenesis.

@Coyote: I'm inclined to push you to trim it down just because the other point of the 2k limit is the fact it's a "challenge" and I know in the past we have not made exceptions. (This happened to me once when the old mod Fractured Illusion was around and she had me cut it down.) Plus, I know you're a strong writer and could handle the challenge of a trim... I don't think cutting 100 would be that hard to do, (having just cut the same amount from a homework assignment I went over wc on, lol). But if it's 50 over in the end, that's okay!

@Solemn Coyote: yeah, it's real hard. I had to focus on it all the way through writing and pick paragraphs to delete and not include stuff I dot-pointed in drafts. But just so you know, if your story is over two thousand words at all I don't think I'll vote for it.

WCC SUBMISSION REMINDER:

Since we have 6 entries, I WILL NOT be extending the submission deadline. So make sure to have your entries in by tonight at 11:59 PM (EST).

@Encore: no worries. I experimented with a couple of different ways to clip it down, but in the end all of them made it less comprehensible/less enjoyable to read. I'd rather have it posted in a way that I'm happy with than in a way that can win, so consider me fairly warned.

I'm sorry this is so late, but I have reviewed The God Slave, chapter three, from Dr Self Destruct's favourites list. This is in accordance with the rules of the September contest.

I have not been on this site for a while, but I hope this is in order.
