Contest Completed


A Perfect Prompt - Nightlight
Couldn't Have Done Better Myself! - Would'ya?
The Right Idea! - Wheel of Fortune


I've always been intrigued by the way the human mind works. Mainly how two different people can see something and interpret it in entirely two separate perspectives. So for this contest, I will give you a prompt, a character and an object. It will be your job to write me a short story using these. Take it in any direction you'd like. Just make it something that will catch my attention and draw me in!

SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND! Prizes will be awarded based on the kind of story. There'll be a prize for a happy ending, a tragic ending, a love story, a self-journey/strength story, and a grab-bag type (one that may or may not fit one of the categories, but deserves a prize). Before you start your story, I would recommend choosing a category and checking if any have been not chosen yet!

Character: Lucinda, an average-looking 17-year-old girl in her senior year of high school.
Object: A Ferris wheel.
Prompt: I'm not going to lie; after this long, I expected it to feel better.


A pretty badge and bragging rights! ;p
