My first contest!

Hello everyone and welcome to my very first contest! 

Seeing as I have never done this before, I thought it would be very fun considering I write for contests all the time these days. 

The theme of this contest is:

Twisted Children

Write about a very twisted child. I'm leaving it very open, but you will have to choose one of the themes/ genres below to be the heart of the story. 

 

1. Fantasy- write about something fantasy related.-- CS Collins

2. Sci-Fi- write about space, aliens, what ever.

3. Abduction- write about some sort of abduction.-- Taken by FrootLoop246

4. Alternate Universe- write about someone or something in another universe.

5. Halloween- write about Halloween.-- Taken by Coralie

6. Humor- write about something scary yet funny.

7. Unfortunate Events- write about a very unfortunate event.

8. Romance- write about someone falling in love, but not in a traditional sense. I'm tired of cliches.-- Frankie Frost

9. A Villain- write about a bad guy.-- Taken by Wilmeister

10. A "Hero"- write about a kid that thinks he/she is a good guy.-- Xivtorc, Artemis Lykaios Nightshade

11. A Curse- write about a curse, a cursed object, etc.

12. The Past- write about the past.-- Bear Sandwich

13. Siblings- write about a pair of siblings.

14. Twins- write about a set of twins.-- Grief

15. Moving- write about moving.

16. Abuse- write about abuse.-- Taken by MD22

17. A Ruler- write about a kid that is the ruler over something.

18. School- write about a child in school.-- Taken by declan mckimm

19. Abandonment- write about a child being abandoned.-- Rebecca1994

20. Life Changing Event- write about how a child's life changes.-- bluerose78

 

Rules.

No erotica. If your story involves sex, please don't go into detail.

Make sure it is a NEW piece.

Please make sure it is a short story.

If it is too graphic, please post on BooksieSilk.

TRY YOUR BEST AND HAVE FUN!

 

 

 

Now for our favorite part! Scoring.

Your piece will be scored on the following:

Grammar

Characters

Overall/ Final ballot

I will Fan you and have your name posted on my page along with a link to your work. I will read THREE of your works (your choice) and leave a comment on each. You can help me create a recurring character and help me plan a scene for my novel Star Gazer.

Also, I was wondering if I can write it as though it is a script? Well, not a script exactly but like... how do I explain it? You know how in court, there is someone who writes down everything that happens and is said? It would be like that but in a different setting. Let me know if that's ok!

It's a shame it has to be a short story and a new piece, because I have already written a novel about a psychotic, murderous child.

Hey! I would love to take number 10. I have a question, does the character need to be a child throughout the entire story or can we progress the story to where we (as in the author) can show the character being a child and then an adult later in the story? Thanks again :)

I would prefer them to stay a child, but if you want to make him/her older lter, that's also okay. (:

I think I could do 'Ruler' or 'Curse'. What would you recommend?

Either or is good. I like the idea of a child ruler, though.
