Summary:

I don't know of anyone braver than those men and women in uniform and their families. Soldiers, Firefighters, and Police officers risk their lives every day to keep our world a safer place. So we here at Twific Reviews think that they deserve their own contest. So "For the Love of a Man in Uniform" is born.
Here are the rules:

 

  • Your story must be based on a man/woman in uniform or their loved ones. This includes: soldiers, sailors, marines, pilots, police officers, firefighters and medical personnel
  • Your story must be a One Shot and please no previously posted stories or outtakes.
  • The One Shot must be between 2,000 and 20,000 words not including an A/N or the contest heading which you must include in the document.
  • Any Paring is allowed
  • Any Rating is allowed. Lemons are not required, but are always appreciated!
  • This is an anonymous contest so please don't cheat by telling people that it's your story...we will eventually find out and then you will be disqualified. Plus cheating isn't cool!
  • Collaborations are allowed, but please remember to include all members pen-names in the heading.
  • The limit is two entries per individual or collaboration
  • We ask that you keep away from the topics of Rape and Incest or anything creepy like that. Also please also no Pedophilia (unless it's century year old vamps with 17 year old girls), bestiality (unless it's with warewolves)....geesh what is it with this series we're reading!
  • Finally, please get your stories Beta'd...if you don't have someone available to beta for you I suggest sending the story to Project Team Beta: http://www.projectteambeta.com/ It does take time to get this done so don't wait until the very last minute to send it in. We're giving you plenty of time. If you are still having problems just get in touch with us and we'll see if we can help you out.

Summary:

The Hope Springs Eternal Contest is about finding the bright side. Everyone goes through challenges in life, it's how you deal and move forward that truly illuminates the character of the person.


So write us whatever you want, but please, don't make it a picture perfect characterization of life. The flaws, the heartache, the battle and triumphs are what we want to read about.


Select one of our many prompts to get your inspiration.  Then go write us your best tale of hope.  That in the end, things will get better.


I'm not saying you have to make your story a sickly sweet happily ever after,  but we do want to see some promise of better things down the road.


It also doesn't need to be super angsty, just write us a tale of life's ups and downs.


This is a Twilight Contest.  Check out our blog site for all the rules & other information.

Summary:

Challenge 1

I can't seem to find a nice enough story where the Cullens are just like normal teenagers. So not a lot of requirements. It can't be a one-shot. Lemons are allowed and encouraged, and I don't really have a prize or anything. I just want to be able to read something nice and I bet others will love to read your stories as well. 

Challenge 2

Okay so this one is because I have a craving that needs to be filled. I need me some LEMONS!!! I don't care if they have a plot, or just random one-shots that tickle your fancy. Any kind is accepted but multi-chapter would be great. I also have a preference to kinky stuff just saying. That includes fantasies, slash, BDSM, role play, whatever you can think of. Once again, no prize just think of this as a sort of prompt to get people posting the kind of stories I want.

Summary:

It can be anything you like as long as it's 50 words.

This was a writing challenge issued in my upper level creative writing class and I thought it would be fun to try it out here.

The only rules are it must be fiction, it must be your own work, and try not exceed the 50 word limit. There is not a limit on entries, category or genre.

Here is an example:

One eye was warm brown, like melting chocolate for dipping; the other was a cold slate gray. He moved closer with his pen light. "Sit back and relax. It will be over soon." "But I don't want them changed. I like the difference in color." Her mother paled at the idea.
