Hi, guys, I’m hosting another contest!!

 

This Contest Closes on September 1, 2013!!

 

Theme: Science Fiction

 

Some of you may know that I’m a major fan of science fiction. It’s definitely one of my favorite genres to read and write. Sometimes I have to search like a crazy person on writing websites to find stories under the science fiction genre and most that I do find turn out to be short stories and not actual novels where I can get attached to and fall in love with the characters.

 

So for this contest I want any science fiction stories that you have. They can be short stories or novels (however I will only consider two chapters from the novel eligible, if you choose to enter a novel). I might actually follow up reading your novel after the contest.

 

Most people think that science fiction only involves aliens, but there really is so much more to it than that. Here’s a definition I found online that I thought might better explain it:

 

Definition of Science Fiction

“Science fiction is a genre of fiction in which the stories often tell about science and technology of the future. It is important to note that science fiction has a relationship with

the principles of science—these stories involve partially true partially fictitious laws or theories of science. It should not be completely unbelievable, because it then ventures into the genre fantasy.”

So I really think this will be fun and for those of you who want to enter, but don’t have the slightest clue what to write, well don’t worry because I found a website that has a long LIST of science fiction prompts and if you want you can write a story based off the prompt. Here’s the link: http://www.writepop.com/category/1001-story-ideas

 

Note: In order for this contest to run, there must be at least ten people who enter because it's no fun if only a few people enter. So if you intend to enter please say so in the comment section.
