Winner of Contest #1

I received a total of 7 entries which was quite a good response for the first contest especially considering that it was held by a minnow so yeah I felt good on receiving all the entries and the nice response. I am thankful to all the entrants and I enjoyed all the stories. There was one story I liked the most. It was intriguing, full of suspense and it was really well written too. So the winner is....

@divineinyang

Congrats to you man! Your story was really good. You win 5SBD prize and I am so happy that you participated in the contest. Do consider joining the next one too.

There were 3 more stories that I felt I must appreciate. So as honorable mentions, I give 1SBD each to:

The contest is quite simple. You have to write a story, essay or anything that you can think of ranging between 500 to 1000 words. It must have the following prompt used anywhere within the written piece and it must also follow the theme for the week. Here is the prompt and the theme for this week's contest:

Theme

Romance/ Drama (you can intermix both or choose one)

Rules
There are a few rules that you need to follow to be eligible for participating in the contest:

-The story/ written piece must be within 500 to 1000 words and must have the prompt used in it, and it must also comply with the given theme.

-The written piece must be your own creation. I will check all the articles for plagiarism and any sort of plagiarism if found will be reported to @steemcleaners.

-There is no compulsion for you to upvote this post. If you do upvote it, I'll be happy but even if you don't upvote it, it is perfectly fine. :) See I am still smiling.

-Do resteem this post so it gains more visibility and helps more people join on this challenge.

-Make sure to post it by the end of next Saturday i.e. 3rd March, 2018.

I will start the judging on Sunday and post results on the same day or a day later if I receive a lot of entries.


The Prize

The winner of the contest will win a prize of 5SBDs from me and honorable mentions will receive 1SBD each. If this post does well and makes over $30, I'll add more SBD to the prize pool.

Tip

Guys, please do proofread your work and check for any grammatical errors, spellign mistakes and sentence construction issues. Stories that are written well and do not contain these issues have a higher chance of winning. The winning story in the first contest hardly had any sentence construction issues, grammatical errors or other mistakes which is why it stood out from the rest.

So guys, get started with it, get your creative juices flowing and produce some exciting stories. And oh yeah, one entry per person is allowed. :) I wish you all GOOD LUCK!!

Love and light,

Sharoon.

Every morning she went to the loo,
full of romance and in love with her poo.
Maybe not a thousand words, but original goo,
and for your information, I upvoted you. 😎

I am super grateful to you, @sharoonyasir for considering me worthy of such honour. I thank you and may God bless you..

Looking forward to the next contest...

·

Your story was really good. Thank you for being a part of it :)

Gracias @sharoonyasir es magnifico, no me lo esperaba en verdad y me siento muy feliz de haber recibido una mención en tu concurso. Espero que en el próximo participemos muchos mas.

Thank you for the honorable mention, and conratulations to the other winners.

·

You are welcome. Enjoyed your story :)

Did you put "spellign" in there on purpose? 😂

·

Lol.... So you saw it too...

·

Lol sort of yes. I made a typo but chose not to correct it so ppl understand how it feels to have such errors in stories and avoid making them :P

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #30. 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!

Thank you @sharoonyasir for this opportunity. I definitely enjoyed the challenge and have resteemed to others. Here is my submission - with Drama as the theme.

Congratulations to the winners, excellent contest

·

Thank you :)

Nice one.... I'll be joining and there's my little upvote for support

·

Thanks a lot :)

A prequel (of something I am writing now) - I thought of it while reading your competition. It fits..

·

:) I'll look at it

Resteemed to! - a cool comp!

·

Thanks a lot :)

I wasn't quite clear on when the contest ends, if I submit one tomorrow will that count?

·

Yes it will. Submit it fast :)

Wow. First contest I've joined and I got to be an honorable mention. Yay

·

Yayy for you :) Your story was quite creepy and not my type, but I was judging the contest so I had to be fair and your story did deserve an honorable mention. It was very interesting and nicely written :)

·
·

Hahaha It was creepy. I actually dreamt those stuff

·
·
·

Oh my really?? That must have been very strange and frightening. Did you get to the root of it?

·

I guess so? @mistermercury thinks this is energy-related, which I totally agree. Another friend of mine gave me an advice that I need to find peace of mind because she can sense an unstable spiritual part of me and negative vibes. Im working on that. By the way, she's not a shaman, but she's exceptional when it comes to stuff like that. I don't know what to do? I really believe that that was God of taking to me. After that series of dreams (and the anti-vomiting prescription), I was diagnosed with kidney failure and I'm undergoing dialysis for almost 11 months already.

Oh my God, you have been through a lot. Yeah it could be energy related. I believe in that but do not have sufficient knowledge on it so cannot say much. I hope your pains soothe and you feel at peace soon. Ameen

Amen. Thanks
