Hello all Booksie members and welcome to my new contest where I hope everyone who takes part in this has a wonderful time making up stories. Now in this contest there will be a total of 4 different genres you can choose from to make a story for, BUT you can also choose to pick 2 genres to mix to create your story but no more than 2. Each genre will have guidelines you must have in your story because I will be looking for them. Also, if your story has 2 genres mixed then it doesn’t have to follow the guidelines but it must be good. Now let’s get to the rules followed by the genres guidelines.

 

 

RULES:

  1. Your piece MUST be a short story.
  2. CANNOT use a story that has already been written
  3. The MAXIMUM word total you can have is no more than 6,000 words.
  4. At the end of your story, you MUST include the word count of the story.
  5. MUST have a little summary of the story before the story begins. (This does not count for the total word count).
  6. Profanity can be used in your story, but no heavy usage of the word FUCK or anything relating to it.
  7. Try to have little to no grammatical errors
  8. Please read other peoples work. (This is not mandatory).
  9. Please have fun making your story.

 

Finally we come down to the due date.  The due date for your story is no later than June 20th. (This date may change or may not. I will inform you if it does).

ALL WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED TWO WEEKS AFTER THE DUE DATE.

For the people that make 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, I will send you a message explaining what the story is about whenever the time comes for you to make a character if you choose to. If you choose not to make a character, then feel free to add another story for me to read to make up for it.

 

All stories will be graded 1-10.

1= Boring

10= Outstanding

 

There will be no ties for placement.

 

If you were unable to make a placement, do not consider yourself a loser. If you are able to write a story and submit by due date, then you are already considered a winner, but it is only the best stories that get recognized.

I hope whoever joins enjoys making their story and I can’t wait to see how many people are willing to go the distance and produce a wonderful piece.

If you are interested, please leave a comment. (This DOES NOT determine if you are in or out).

When you are done writing it and posting it, please send me the link to your story by message or quickee.

Make the best out of what you write and be happy about what you create. Good luck to all and can’t wait to read some stories.
