Unleash your Imagination! Join the Tell a Tale Contest

in contest •  last year  (edited)


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

  • Upvote the post

  • The theme is Fiction, with Magic/Adventure/Paranormal or Supernatural.
    Your topic should be at least the following:

  • Fiction with Magic and Adventure.
  • Fiction with Magic and Paranormal or Supernatural
  • Fiction with Adventure and Paranormal or Supernatural
  • Fiction with Magic, Adventure and Paranormal or Supernatural.
  • You can also choose whether you will be writing a short story or a chapter 1 of the novel ( ONLY THE CHAPTER 1 ). Also I will accept only the new post after this announcement so if you have an old story that you will be using it will not be accepted.

For the short-story the minimum is 500 words and the maximum is 2,000 words
For the chapter 1 novel the minimum is 1,000 words and the maximum is 4,000 words
The following words will be counted in MS Word and I will check it manually.

  • It should be original and your own work. Not originally copied from google and other story sites. The concept of this mini-contest is to unleash your creativity in writing and not creativity in copying or even spinning some stories by using the article spinner found it google.

  • You can have your own title but use the tag #tellatale so that I will know that it is an entry to the contest. Do not also forget to drop your link in the comments for it to be counted.

  • It should also have some images with regards to the images that you will be using, if you are an artist you can draw your own character or scenery etc. I am good with atleast 2 or 3 images ( not mandatory but there's a plus )

  • It should be in English.

  • You can join both categories but it should be in a different post each. (1 entry in each category)

Upvote ko na lang. Ok bye! lol!

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #54. The list is updated on a daily basis and your contest will remain on the list until its expiration - there's nothing you need to do.

The list was created to save writers the excessive amount of time spent searching through the #contest tag for writing contests. Now they can just come to the list each day, see new contests and use their time doing what they love - writing.

If you'd like to help spread the word about the Steemit Writing Contest List I'd really appreciate a resteem, but it certainly isn't necessary. The project is simply meant to help writers save time and contest creators attract more contestants.

P.S. If you know of any contests I've missed I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!


Thanks this is really appreciated @moneyinfant.


My pleasure.

I feel excited about it, thank you for your post.

Good for you to hold a contest. I think this is a difficult task.

I'm coming to you from @kryptonia with the same user name. It's Sunday @kryptonia re-steeming day for me and you are a part of that :)

That image is a rather unfortunate devaluation of a painting by Daniel Lieske, called "The Journey Begins".
