Writing contest: What's that sound in the darkness?

in soundinthedarkness •  9 months ago  (edited)

NO MORE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED.

1st prize: 3 steem + full upvote.

2nd prize: 1 steem + full upvote.

3rd prize: full upvote.

My full upvote at 11, 200 SP is something like $0.60.


I made this.

All you have to do is write a story about that sound in the darkness. What is it?

It can be a fiction story or something that really happened to you. I'm a fiction writer so I really like to read things related to science fiction, horror, or just anything really spooky and neat. It can also be a story about something that happened to you in the past though. Some sound in the darkness that you heard that was either scary or annoying.

Scary is my favorite, but I will vote based on merit and enjoyment level.

In order to enter you must do the following things.

  1. Upvote this post.

  2. Resteem this post.

  3. Post a link with your story using soundinthedarkness as the first tag.

  4. Put a link to this contest in your story somewhere.

Easy peasy.

If this contest does well, I will up the rewards for the next one.

Well I got an email saying that they owe me $10,000 from my stash on Tradeqwik. I had a lot invested. I would like to get it, even if it is in the form of some erc20 token called Aviv.

Then I understand completely. I did not invest and I feel sorry for you. I do hope that at some point you get this back. I truly hope so...

I surprisngly had quite a bit of fun writing this one hope you enjoy it. Here's my entry - https://steemit.com/writing/@chekohler/writing-contest-entry-what-s-that-sound-in-the-darkness
