heart The Original Love heart Story heart Writing Contest heartheart
Welcome to The Original Love Story Writing Contest. I really adore love stories. Whether or not it is fiction or non-fiction. I have had a rather hard time trying to find a good competition to enter a love story in, as most things are fantasy or there is a 250g or higher entry fee. Well I do not feel like paying that when I am just happy for people to read my story. Though of course for there to be any real prize I want the fee to be 100g. This time around I will be offering only constructive comments. Through you may make a note on your entry that you would not like it to be critiqued and we well respect that as your request.
Well firstly enter your story (guidelines are posted below) and I will wait till there are a few goods ones to choose from, then choose the winner. I would like a minimum of 10 contestants. To win the story it must be touching (to me anyways), I am kind of looking for happy stories here, ONLY happy stories. Well not necessarily just in the air with joy, they can be serious romantic. But no he left me and I still love him stories. I want happy ones here. I find that they are much more unique to come across from current writers. It must be creative and original (no fanfiction). Use spelling and gammier to your advantage. I would like to see well written stories.
Also some more things, you are NOT aloud to enter a piece or a scene from say a novel you are writing. It must be a short story not a chunk taken out of a story. Also, I would like your entry to be unique to this contest. If I just so happen to stumble upon it or find it in another contest your story will be removed from the constants list.
Your story has to be a story that really stands out for it to win. Something special and original. If there is not one than I guess no one wins, but I amhoping and almost sure there are many good writers out there.
I do not get any fees from this contest as I want all proceeds to go to the winner of this contest, there will be a second winner and a third winner.
1. 1 page (500 words) minimum 10 page (5000 word) maximum and there are exceptions if you pm me first I will except up to a 20 page (10 000 word) story.
2. No sexuality (alright I get allot of questions about this. So here a bit more detailed is what I mean. No erotic writeing, no sexual intercource, no fondleing in a sexual manner. No makeing out, a descriptive kiss is just fine.)
3. Must be all your own writing (as stated above)
4. Be nice to everyone, even if you do not agree with them
5. Read ALL the introduction so that you know what to write and what to do
6. The contest will last until I have a good story that I like...this contest may last months. So please, do not ask me when the contest is going to end as I really will not know until I have decide so please, a little patience.
7. I want the entry in the normal sized print, do not downsize it. Or of course upsize it.
8. Read my updates in the second post every so often as they will change from time to time
