@markrmorrisjr has a contest that requires little effort on your part, but should be great fun for everyone involved. Each day, he'll put up a post with some writing prompts, between 5 and 10, some written, some images. If you'd like to see him write one of them, vote for it in the comments. The prompt with the most votes will be his story inspiration! He will write a story, from scratch, of at least 500 words, and base it on the prompt! Then he’ll choose one lucky person who chose the winning prompt as the winner of the contest and they get 25% of the SBD from the story post. He’s had stories pay out over 700 SBD in the past! He plans on doing this every day until he reaches 5,000 followers, so it could go on for several weeks. Here’s the “contest”

Which one? There's 49 of them in the list.

I see you're fulfilling your promise of keeping up with this... well done!
It won't be easy!

The list keeps growing in size, so it will become more time consuming, but it remains just as fulfilling.
Likely I'll be splitting it into two daily posts soon - one for new contests and one for ongoing contests. I may split the ongoing further to fiction and poetry, but that hasn't been decided yet.
