Hey everyone. Hope all of you are good. Today, I'll be revealing the winner of the 'Shary's Writing Prompt Contest #1 and will also talk about the next contest.
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....
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:
I am attaching a screenshot of my wallet so you can see that I have already distributed the prize money among the winners.
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:
So that was what she was doing early morning every day... (You can use it in the start, middle or end of a sentence.)
Romance/ Drama (you can intermix both or choose one)
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.
-Title the post 'Shary's Writing Prompt Contest #2' followed by whatever title you wish to give to your story.
-Make a post on the story and submit its link in the comments below.
-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 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.
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,
