Art prompt writing contest #1

Art Prompt Writing Contest.png

We have a lot of fun in the fiction-workshop over on Discord and I have gained not only great friends, but invaluable help in writing my own fiction story. You can read my current sci-fi series on my SteemShelf. I decided to start a weekly writing competition. Members of the fiction-workshop at PALnet will assist in judging the entries.

Instead of a theme or word prompts, it was decided to choose a piece of art from Steemit - with the artist's permission - and use that as a prompt. It will be interesting to read the different interpretations of the piece. I chose the following painting from @yusaymon. Thanks for letting me use your beautiful painting for this contest @yusaymon.

Thank you for your submission

·
·

You are more than welcome, boss. Thank you for the inspiration.

@gmuxx Thanks to you <3 I 'm excited to see those fiction stories O_O

·

That was some deep piece of creation. Amazing work. I just saw it and started writing. Didn't pause much in between, and the edit was limited to grammar and structure. You might want to see your creation in my entry above 😉

@misterakpan I will see it :D

Will skip this one, will just vote for @yusaymon's post (well, I always do as his admirer:)
Hope there also will be a painting contest one day:)

Coming in just before the bell: https://steemit.com/writing/@lenadr/silence-after-chaos-art-prompt-writing-contest

I'm such a procrastinator!

·

Thank you for your timely submission ;-)

·
·

It was hard to keep it at 1000 words! I had to cut quite a bit.

The idea I am having is verging on the nsfw, is this acceptable or do I need to pull the reigns in?

·

Nope, no reigns

·
·

*bex has urges to edit on the comments.... tries to resist them... fails miserably.

Reins.

·
·
·

You are right , no reindeer or horses planned in the story lol. Or monarchy even.

I might give this a go if I have time!

·

Please do. I look forward to reading your submission.

I wouldn't mind giving this a shot. Just have to wait for inspiration :)

·

Awesome, I look forward to reading your story.

Let the upvoting commence!

Hi Sir Muxxalot the chocolate coated. Grinning. Here's my contribution to your competition.

I started in one direction and pivoted when I sat with the picture for a bit.
Hugs.

Why, thank you my sweet @jhagi

Hi.
This is a great idea! I'll have to see if I can find some time to write something.

Can you tell me a bit more about Steemshelves? It looks like you pay to add some fiction? This would be a cool way for me to publish some old buried stories that i've considered self-publishing!

·

Check out the announcement post here https://steemit.com/writing/@rhondak/introducing-steemshelves

It's not just for fiction though. The idea is to have a shelf where you can place posts for easier finding, rather than trawling through your blog.

Great! I love these contests. 🐓🐓

Upvoted and resteemed! 👍🏻

Ok. @Gmuxx, I did it. I need to get another coffee... I hope you and others enjoy it. Thanks for inspiring me.
It's called Disunity - https://steemit.com/writing/@jasonbu/disunity

Thank you for your submission

I finally was able to write uninterrupted. It's a different kind of story... he is so alone, pity his plight and rescue him.

Thank you for your submission

Awesome. Thanks for your submission.

Thanks for the invite Muxxy. Some nice work inspired by @yousaymon's painting.

Here's my entry called My Husband the Cowboy Poet

Keep on Steem'n on!

logyx

EDIT: not to confuse, perhaps to amuse? I took what seemed to be an opportune time to add an edit to my story (seeing as it was still trending after 2 days) The new title is An Important Message To All Steemians! Just thought it might be important enough to mention here.

·

Thank you for your submission

With only a couple of hours to go, please excuse any grammatical errors, especially in tense as I have a tendancy to write in past and present tenses interchangably and may not have caught them all trying to be under the deadline.

I was unable to upvote the original painting post since it is under 12 hours from payout, I apologize!

Here is my entry - Adam & Eve
