Hello, all fiction writers!
Welcome to the 1st fiction writing competition week 1.
Ever since I posted the introduction to the fiction competition...There have been moments where I would just stare idly at the ceiling thinking up different writing prompts. It hasn't been an easy week...Believe it or not...I am very excited to see how every thing will play out.
For the sake of those who haven't seen the introduction post...I think it would be best that I give them a run down of it but instead of posting the same things over and over again...I have decided I will just link the introduction post here. New comers can read all about the competition here. Please familiarize yourselves with the rules of the competition and how it will be run. In order to run it as fairly as possible those rules were created.
Well, the moment you have all been waiting for for...this writing prompt will test your mettle. We will be able to see how you will weave an interesting story that will sweep the audience off their feet. So without further ado....
Having seen the fall and rise of empires...the death of his loved ones...an immortal tries his best to not mingle with society by holing himself up in a cave far away from any civilization. During one stormy night...his home becomes the shelter for a stranger who is the spitting image of his grandson.
To be honest...I didn't want to use this prompt for the start of the competition...it's a bit difficult...a lot of things can happen and people can misinterpret it. But I guess...I will just let it be and let you folks decide how you want to play around with it. :)
Please make sure that you have familiarized yourselves with everything in the introduction post before submitting your story. Today is the 10th of September and you have until the 15th of September to leave your submission in the comments. Hopefully, this will be enough time to let your creative juices flow. If you want you can also submit it to the workshop for criticism and advice but please be sure to mention that the story is for the fiction competition. :) (Don't forget to have the link put in the comments as well.) :).
Note: If anyone wants to provide a better image for the competition...I would be really happy and I am sure every one else would appreciate it too.
Please do let other people know about the competition so we can get as many interested participants as possible. Thank you all for your time. Good luck with the competition and much love to all the wonderful writers out there. :)
