Tragic Just Isn't Enough  August 29, 2008 - November 9, 2008

Reading and Deliberating

Details

I'm a person who loves to read, and write, tragedies. I know, weird, but I just love them. And lately, I've been in a slum, so I need inspiration.

So I want you to give me your most tragic short stories and/or poems. Please no books or very long chapters! I won't have the time to read them all!

Basically, I want intense pain, woeful cries, dead hope, and all that jazz! Give me something that will make me cry (and I do not cry easily) or make me scream with frustration! Or even make me smile since I love tragedies.

Some Things You Might Wanna Be Sure Of:
1. Originality! I hate, hate cliche plots (depending on how well-written it is). Surprise me by giving me something new!

2. No Erotica. Please keep it T-rated.

3. Paragraphs! I know most of you do separate paragraphs, but some don't, so please do! It makes it easier to read!

Good? Alright! Now make me wish I never put this contest up! :D Good Luck to everyone!

Prizes

Um...pride and bragging rights? And my happiness! And practice for writing tragedies! Oh, and those cyber badgey thingys! I
