Writing contest!

I've decided to host a little something different! I've decided to host a short story writing contest. I hope you can enter!


Rules:
1. You MUST follow this blog.
2. The story MUST be written entirely by you. Co-authoring is allowed; just make sure you let me know!
3. You MUST choose one of the genres listed. If you choose romance, keep it clean!
4. Whichever genre you choose, you MUST post the appropriate button on your blog. If you don't have a blog and you just want to enter, that's okay.
5. The story MUST be at least 500 words long and at most 5,000 words long.
6. HAVE FUN!!!
extra note: If you can't determine which genre you've written, just put it under general and post the image from this post onto your sidebar.

Genres:
Action
Fantasy
General
Romance
Sci-fi
Suspense

This ends when I have five entries, whenever that may be.

    1. When I think of Suspense, I think of more of the mystery genre. When I think Sci-fi, I think outer space and time travel (Star Trek, e.g.) Romance, obvious. Fantasy, fairies . Action, obvious.
      If you don't know what genre you're writing, you can just post the image in this post on your sidebar and say that it's more of a general fiction genre.
      Hope this helps! =D

    4. You know, I didn't think of that at first. I'll have to think about that...

      Delete
    5. I don't have a blog so how do I show you my story?

      Delete
    6. I've been thinking about that, and decided that for those who don't have a blog, they can do it like a guest post. Sort of.

      On this blog, you can email your story to a certain email address, and it will be saved as a draft. I can publish it for you and put it under your name (Anonymous).

      I won't be able to see your email address. Does that sound okay?

      Delete
    7. So I send the story to your email?

      Delete
    8. To my Blogger email, yes. Your email automatically saves as a post.

      Here's the address: lena.kunz98.living4him@blogger.com

    1. There's a gadget in the sidebar that allows you to receive emails/blog posts in your inbox/dashboard when I post on my blog. If you don't want to use your/don't have a Google Blogger/Google+ account, you can always follow via email.

      Delete
    2. Follow via email? What does that mean? Sorry my questions sound so stupid. I'm new to the blogging thing!

      Delete
    3. There's a gadget in my right sidebar that says -email- over it. Beneath that, there's a place where you enter your email address and hit the Submit button. You'll get a confirmation email in your inbox.
      Whenever I publish a post, the people who follow me via email get an email with the post in it.
      Hope this helps.
