An awesome day to all steemians!
All of us have their own story to tell. We fantasize on something that may or could have happen. May it be in an alternate reality or another world perhaps. Currently I am working with a novel that I will be publishing also here in steemit which is under the category of Fiction, Magic and Adventure.
I am a no reader of those stories and if you will be asking me who is my favorite author I can only say Paulo Coelho and C.S. Lewis because I was able to read "some" of their works.
I haven't read J.K. Rowling's work btw but I am familiar with Harry Potter Series.
For this contest I do want to help some steemians unleash their imagination in writing stories. May it be a short story or a novel with some chapters that will work. I started writing some stories in our local dialect and I was able to make some friends out it. Each time that I will be seeing their comments on how the liked the storeis that I tell it gives me encouragement to do more and level-up my game further.
This time, I do want to return the favor that I received and that is why I am hosting this mini-contest. Who knows you also have a knack in writing fiction stories that you didn't know.
For the contest here are the mechanics
