Writers! Win 5 Steem! Twenty-four hour short story contest for March 6. Topic 7--A werewolf that turns human during a full moon.


The 24 hour short story challenge

(But you'll get a little more time than that...)

I am fascinated by science fiction writer Harlen Ellison writing short stories in a book store window.  He wrote short stories with everyone watching for years, and people questioned if he already had the stories, so he began to take suggestions for topics from people watching.  Chris Carter of X-files fame gave him the topic of a 102-year-old pregnant corpse, and he wrote a story based on that idea.

I am giving a little time  more this go around, as I want to give the chance for more entries and to get the word out a little more.

And congrats to  hope-k for winning last week's contest.

Here are the terms of the contest.

Write a short story no longer than 2,000 words, based on the topic phrase.

Here is the topic for you short story:

A reverse werewolf.  A werewolf that turns human on a full moon.  

Here are the rules for entry

1. Upvote this post.  

2. Resteem this post  (And actually even you don't enter this contest and you read this post, resteeming this would be greatly appreciated to get the word out for more participants.  Thanks!)

3. In your post put a link to this post.  

4. Post a link to your story in the comments below.

Entries are due by 9 p.m. EST (New York/D.C. Time) Tuesday March 6.  This actually gives you a little over 48 hours from when I make this post.  But I want to give more time to allow for more people to enter the contest. 

Use the tag twentyfourhourshortstory for your first tag.  (Don't use # before the tag or it goes over the 24 character limit.  24...24 hour short story contest...Ironic don't you think...)

Feel free to use other tags as you wish.

Prizes are:5 Steem for First Place.

3 Steem for Second Place 

And depending on how many entries I receive I may give out Steem for other entries.  But again that all depends on the amount and quality of posts.

(I am personally putting up the rewards for this contest, there be no whales here capt’in.  So upvoting and resteeming helps keep this thing going.)

Thanks and Good Luck!

Awesome topic! I thought I would give it a try. I think I followed all the rules properly! Thanks so much to anyone who gives it a read!
The story is called Scarred Sheep. Good luck everyone! Can't wait to read them.

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #38. 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!

This is a great topic! Joy

Cool! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

I'm recovering so don't expect too much. Carbon monoxide messes with the brain. :). Joy

That sounds terrible.

But combine carbon monoxide poisoning with the reverse werewolf. Maybe that's how it happens.
