It's time for a new writing contest! Here are the details for this round:
Your prompt is: Why did we come here?
Your word limit this round is 110 words. (100 words + the prompt sentence + 5 bonus words just for the heck of it.) You can use the prompt sentence anywhere in your 110 word entry. First line, last line, third line, whatever, but it must be a question.
Think of your 110 words as the opening of a story. Your goal is to draw the reader in, same as you would want to be drawn in if you were picking up a book.
Your entries are due on Monday, December 3rd (2012) by 11:59pm Kansas City time.
The contest is for those age 21 and under. One entry per person.
*NEW THIS ROUND* Instead of emailing your entries to me, you'll be submitting them on the form below. This will not only reduce the time I spend registering entries, it will reduce opportunities for human error, which is always nice. Please let me know if you're having problems with the form, or if you have any questions about this. My email address is Stephanie(at)GoTeenWriters.com.
