    13th EGS Writing Contest

    After a long break it's time for contests. I hope you had enough rest, dear writers, so that you can present us with your new creations.

    I think I had some ideas for the theme before the holidays, but then I looked up this week in the calendar... And decided that our theme is Friday the 13th. You are free to write in any genre, but your story should contain exactly this kind of Friday

    Rules

    1. Your entry must be a minimum of 2,000 words and a maximum of 7,000.
    2.
    You can post a summary before or after your story in the same thread but in a different post. It can't be longer than 500 words but aside from that, the length is up to you.
    If you don't post it and your entry wins, I will write it instead of you and it will be published according to the prize definitions of this contest. Of course, the summary will be discussed and agreed with you first.
    3. Indicate the word count at the end of your entry, excluding the summary.
    4. While the contest is ongoing, you can update your summary/entry at any time.
    5.
    You may have your entry proofread, but you must either post your original entry or send it to me via PM. If you choose the second option, no one else will see it.
    If someone of EGS members proofreads your story, please, mention their user name in your entry thread.
    6. Your story must contain Friday the 13th. You are free to interpret it in your own way .
    7. Our additional rule this time is that your story must contain music. Any kind of music, whatever you decide.
    8. To participate, make a new thread in this forum titled with your username/pen name and the [title of your piece].
    9. Whatever entry you have by the deadline is what will be judged, so make sure to update it in time.


    The deadline is the 23rd of March.

    Prizes
    The winning piece's author will receive a medal badge under their username.


    Good luck! The Writing Contest is now open!
    I am rather impressive, yes. ©

    Before putting down ideas on paper I have a question. :)
    Must the action happen during Friday the 13th or can it be just a reference to the legends inside the story?

    Seira, it can be the reference. Only not something like a side fact, but within a really important plot line, to stay faithful to the theme.

    Are people like me still allowed to play? HAHAHA.


    Just saw the post and just finished writing something for all of your amusement. Hope you all enjoy!
    Here and there.

    People often tell that, in a specific time of the year, the God of Paths and Travels always goes to the same place and sits under a tree, seeming to talk to a Little Blue Bird, whose song is said to calm anyone's heart.
