This round's writing prompt is:
It had been 4 years, but still the memory lingered.
And here's something new. Occasionally, just for kicks, I'm going to toss in an extra guideline. This round the extra guideline is no violence. No glocks, no brass knuckles, no cat fights. And so forth. As much as I love the thrill of a gun being pulled (or on Veronica Mars, I was especially fond of the tazer), let's stretch our creativity this time by thinking outside the violent box.
Other than the no violence policy this round, everything is the same. Think of the prompt as the first sentence of a story, then write the next 100 words as you see fit. Entries are due Monday, May 2nd at 11:59pm Kansas City time. (Also known as central time.) You may email them to me by clicking here or at Stephanie(at)GoTeenWriters(dot)com. No attachments, please.
Last Friday, I posted some tips about writing prompts. If you haven't checked that out yet, I'd consider doing so. For other FAQs and prize information click here. One entry per person, please, and must be 25 and under to enter.
A quick word about how judging works. One judge will select the top 20 entries. From those 20, the other judges will select their three favorites.
And our lovely judges this round are:
