I cheered like a cowgirl. :D
But now, girls, its high time. High time? For what? For another contest here at The Inkpen Authoress! :) The Prompt Story Contest. I have done many different sorts of contests in the course of my "life" here on this blog, but this one is just a tad different. You see, it's a short-story contest. Yes yes I know, but what makes it different?
Just this: I am supplying the opening sentence. I am giving you a "prompt." You have to use this sentence as the start of your story and build something fabulous off of it. I'm looking for original, fascinating, captivating, intriguing stories built off of that one little sentence. Ready for the challenge?
All right. Here are the rules:
All stories must be emailed to email@example.com by April 22, 2012. That gives you exactly 2 weeks from today.
- The stories are to be rather short stories--not more than 500 words, please.
- I will pick two winners who will then have their pieces featured on this blog. :)
- All entries must use my sentence as the beginning of the piece.
- All entries must be clean. No language or other questionable material, please. :)
Ready for The Sentence? Here it is!
"When I stepped over the warm, sunsoaked threshold I never expected to see..."
Ready? Set? Scribble!
