~Contest Rules and Such~
If any of you have read any of my stuff, you'll know that I am very inspired by my own life; almost everything I write is from the heart.
I decided to create a True Stories writing contest so that people on Booksie can get to know each other a little better:)
**My definition of a true story: A piece about an experience you had, a descriptive piece about a person/ place/thing/whatever, or like and opinion piece about whatever it is you feel like talking about. It doesn't necessarily have to be like a traditional story per se, it just has to be from the heart. If you have questions about what I will accept, comment below.**
RULES (YOU WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED IF YOU DON'T FOLLOW THESE):
- It must be true: see the definition above for how I define that. If you'd like to change names or minor details for privacy, that's fine.
- It must be a short story/essay/article type thing. Basically, what I mean is NO novels, poems, etc.
- To submit a piece, COMMENT BELOW with the link or the title of your piece.
- All entries must be submitted by January 5, 2012, a month from today.
Pieces can be new or old, as long as they meet the criteria. YOU CAN SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE ENTRY IF YOU WANT.
If you have any questions, comment below:D
1st place: I will read & like ALL of your work and leave thoughtful comments on it, and become a fan if I haven't already.
2nd place: I will read & like FIVE of your pieces (you can tell me which to read) and leave thoughtful comments on them. If you have 5 or less works posted, I will just read them all. Also, I will become a fan if I haven't already.
3 runners up: I will read, like, and comment on 1 piece of your choosing. I will also become a fan.
All 5 winners will have links to their winning entries posted on my profile:)
And of course, I will read, like, and comment on all entries!
