May Monthly Writing Challenge
« on: May 01, 2018, 06:36:28 AM »
May Writing Challenge
May 1st - 31st



Prompt: We've decided to give TWO prompts to choose from for this month, due to the Worldsmyths Million challenge. Hopefully the first one is open enough that we can get some interesting entries! You can choose to do one prompt or the other, or you can do both if you can fit them together! (But only one entry per person)

Your first prompt is an illusion. This could be an actual illusion like magic, or a mirage, a deception, or a misleading impression of reality. That's just a few examples too :)
Or
Your second prompt is to share an emotional scene from your current project/Million Words Challenge entry. Maybe your character got angry at something? Sad? Maybe they are stressed and the high energy is causing a mental breakdown.

If you have any other questions about the challenge, please reply to this post!


Wordcount: 5,000 word maximum. Please remember, this is just a maximum, meaning that you do NOT have to write 5,000 words, it just means that you can't surpass it.
Submission deadline: Thursday May 31st, 2018, by 11:59 PM GMT-5 (11:59 PM EDT).

If you already have something written, you CAN and are encouraged to submit it to the challenge!

Voting will be posted on the 1st of June.

All entries should be submitted to the writing challenge submission forum, using the submission form. You are allowed to submit your challenge via Google doc link or by uploading a Word doc to a response to this post as an attachment.

Remember, all entries must fit the fantasy genre.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask either here in the thread or send me a PM! Good luck!

Hello! I'm wondering if the submit by date is a typo, April 30th has already passed.

For glory lit and life alive,
For goals unreached and dreams to strive:
All men must try, the wind did see,
It is the test, it is the dream.

-Wit, from Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson
