The 1000 Words Contest has just ended - congratulations to winners Obscure, Oleg Roschin, and Ever A. Darling! I'm still not ready to post anything new, but I want to stick around Booksie... so I thought I would host another contest. With BIGGER, BETTER prizes!

Have you ever listened to a certain song and zoned out entirely, in to your own little world that consists of either a memory, or a story, or even just an indescribable state of connection to the music or lyrics? Ever envision the perfect scene for a music video while zoning out to music you are feeling, or be inspired to write a story based on that?

That state of connection to different music is what has inspired me to create the Speak With Sound Contest!

 

 

The guidelines are simple: snag a prompt from the list below, give it a listen, and let yourself be inspired to write. Whatever you write, it must be less than 8, 000 words. I mean - come on, though - that's an insane word count. You can write more, but no promises I will read past this point in consideration of the contest.

All genres will be considered for the Speak With Sound contest, however only short stories and new novel chapters, will be accepted as entries. Entries must be newly written.

There will be only fifteen prompts for this contest, all first come first serve. To enter the Speak With Sound contest, comment below with the prompt that you would like to use.

That easy!

CONTEST WILL CLOSE ON MAY30th 2016. RESULTS WILL BE POSTED BY JUNE 2nd 2016.

 

 

This contest, I want to offer bigger, better prizes than I did with the 1000 Words Contest. I was inspired by how amazing all of the entries were - you guys deserve some truly kick-ass prizes with how talented you are!

First Place Prize

  • Fan Request
  • Comment critique on (5) FIVE pieces of work of your choosing
  • Feature your name and contest entry on my profile indefinitely
  • Promote (1) ONE piece of work of your choosing on my social media (Facebook, Twitter, ChickAdvisor, and Instagram)

Second Place Prize

Remember, each prompt may only be used (1) ONE time by (1) ONE entrant. Better snag yours up, quick! I tried to include a little bit of music from every genre. If nothing has appealed to you and you are interested in joining, I may make an exception for the first few to ask.

TO SUBMIT AN APPEAL FOR A DIFFERENT PROMPT:

  • Message me saying "I would like to join the Speak With Sound Contest 2016. I am appealing to replace the prompt #(enter prompt number here) with the prompt choice (insert youtube link to song)."
  • You must replace an existing prompt to use a new one of choice.
  • Prompt appeals must be of the same music genre/feel as the original.
