But Allusion, what is it about?

Well, your task is to write a short story to continue my open-ended poem "Unreal Reality". 

No word limit. 

Ok. But what do we get if we win?

First place gets:

10 Reading Requests for anything. If it's a novel, I'll read 5 chapters (unless I get hooked) and leave thoughtful comments on what I liked how how you can become and even awesome-er writer.

Plus I will leave your name on my profile until you decide you want me to take it off.

Second Place gets:

7 Reading Requests for either Novels, Poetry or Short Stories (yes, I'm doing this for you. See how I'm nice?). If it's a novel, I'll read 3 chapters and leave comments on the first and third chapter.

I will leave your name on my profile until you decide you want me to take it off.

Third Place gets:

4 Reading Requests for Poetry or Short Stories. 

I will leave your name on my profile for 1 whole month.

I will give it a shot but it might be awhile before you receive a story from me. Horror usually isnt the genre that I write in so I'll have to think up some new ideas XD

I have a few questions. So I've read your poem and I absolutely adore it, but... Can we use the poem in our story any way we want? Or are we REQUIRED to write a short story on what happened from there? For e.g I wanted to just write a short story and include your poem into it, so sort of tie them together. That's all for now. Thanks in advance!

You can, but you have to give me credit for writing the poem in the summary.

If you like poetry, and you do I see... Then can I do a poem, to add to your tome? Will it count for contest? If so then I'll test... If my words have appeal, & they'll give you a Zeal...

It won't count for my contest, since it's a short story contest, but I like what you did there...

Ally Shark

Okay, this is awesome because I already have a story that matches the theme of your poem. A few minor details we changed, but it basically has the same elements. It's funny, 'cause I wrote that story before this contest was started. ???? So can I enter my story "Blurred Memories"?

Wow, looks cool. If it's a short story and not a poem I'll probably enter. In fact, I will, if it's a short story. I am new, though, so I haven't been in any contests yet. I just publish it on my account and say it's an entry in your contest, right? Anyway, thanks for telling me about this contest you're doing. It's a great way to start off here at booksie!
