Apocalypse Writing Contest (Facebook) Open to EVERYONE (readers and authors)
Posted by cynthiashepp
This is a contest that I have going on Facebook right now. I would love to have more entries. Everyone is having such fun with it and I would love to see how creative everyone is. This contest is for ANYBODY, readers, authors, book bloggers, absolutely anyone can submit a story. The only stipulation is that you be a fan on my facebook page as that is where the contest is going on. You can become a fan HERE. I will post everybody’s stories on my facebook page for everyone else to read. Come check out the entries already submitted. The contest details are below.
*For this contest I want you to imagine that the world as we know it has ended. Total Apocalypse. You only have yourself and one other person you can rely on (your choice). There is no power, no water, and you are armed with only a backpack of supplies. In your backpack there are matches, 4 bottles of water, enough food to make it 3 days, and one weapon (your choice). Spin me a story, it can really be as long as you want, but at least 3 paragraphs, and tell me what you would do. Make it like a fiction book and spin a web of survival, danger, and conflict. Tell me why the world as you knew it ended, tell me your fears, make up a world in which nothing is the same and survival is hard, and the world is against you. Tell me what you would do, where you would go, how you would get food and water, how you would protect yourself, and how you would you make your life over again. You could even throw in some romance and meet some new people to help you on your journey.*
You can submit this story to me through my email firstname.lastname@example.org or just send it to me in a message on Facebook. 2 Winners will get a handmade fabric bookmark from Monkeyface Boutique as well as a MYSTERY PRIZE. There will also be a few runner up prizes (depends on how many people enter)! Contest ends September 27th. Cassie and I will review the stories and pick the most creative. BE CREATIVE AND HAVE FUN!
