#fantasystory writing contest - part #1

in #fantasystory3 years ago

Greetings my fellow Steemians!

I love fantasy! In all shapes and sizes! I can not have it enough! You name it I have read it! And I always entertained the idea of writing one, but to my avail, I just don't have the necessary gift to put it together. And believe me, I have tried on numerous occasions. So now I have come up with an idea how to be a part of a making of a one with my poor writing skills.

The Idea

Make a fantasy book that is going to be a collaborative effort of willing Steemit authors and not just writers but also illustrators and whatever else type of author that is going to be needed. My idea is that this is going to be a full-blown fantasy book with not just story but also illustrations and maps as every fantsay book should be. Each week I will post at least one contest and the winner work of each contest is going to be incorporated in the book.


So far, I have come up with ways to fund reward pool so each winner will recive a reward of 5 SBD. Also, I would like to sponsor each entry with one @steembasicincome share but that is still in the works ( haven't found yet an optimal way to fund that). In case that I manage to fund higher prizes the already paid winners will get backpays on their prizes because it is only fair.


  • There is no need to upvote, resteem or anything like that. But never the less, feel free to do it. If you like this idea of mine, I advise you to follow me so you can be up to date with everything that is going on.
  • Each entry must be made in form of a post, and the first tag on the post must be #fantasystory.
  • After the post is made you need to put down a comment with the link to it in the contest post.
  • Winner of each contest will be chosen by engagement on their post and comment and by how much I like their work.
  • Each contest is going to be open until payout of the contest post.
  • By entering the contest each author gives me permission to use their work in whichever manner with the obligation that they will be credited for it.

Part #1 contest

The first contest is short intro in the main character. Work needs to be at least 300 words long. The main character is female dark elf tracker with a snarky personality. Everything else is up to you.

So guys, bust out those quills and inkwells and get this rolling!


Just saw your contest last night and put this together. Hope its not too late to enter. https://steemit.com/fantasystory/@dreambridge/shraelin-s-stand-fantasy-story-contest

No, it's not late @dreambridge. Thank you!

Interesting. For how long will the competition last for the intro. I would like to take part in it, i ll probably finish it in day or two.

Until payout. So you have plenty of time.

Hmmmm... Interesting contest.

By the way, what do you mean by intro, do you mean a prologue? Backstory written in a novel way? or just a description of the character with any style?

I already have a story with Elves on steemit so I'm not new to fantasy genre, but it seems my character is the exact opposite of a Dark Elf.

If I would need to guess what I meant I would probably say backstory with good description of the character!

best thing that i found here, thanks mate for sharing @labakj

this is very interesting!

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #16. 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!
