And after a 1-month break... we are back for Season 2 Round 4 🙌
You didn't think I'd disappeared, did you?
Good! Now we got that outta the way 😂😂😂...
So... this month the challenge is simple 😜... a choice of prompts will follow below... pick ONE of them and write a drabble.
What the heck is a drabble, Sam?
Glad you asked!
A drabble is a short work of fiction of precisely one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in a confined space.
For this challenge, we want you to showcase your creativity in exactly 100 words (no more, no less!!!) to create the best short story fiction inspired by one of the prompts below.
Please make a note at the end of your post as to which prompt you have used to inspire your story. This note is not included in your word count 🤗
Use a word counter and paste a screenshot at the bottom of your post. Only the actual 'story' counts toward the word count.
But what if I write less than 100 words, Sam? I mean...
uh... yeah... but they need to be exactly 100 words short! 🤣
ok... then what if I make it longer than 100 words? I mean...longer is better, right?
Nope!!! Not in this case...😜
Where does it hurt?
Following the rules is boring.
I have secrets
The world is not ready for us.
The real world
Summary of requirements:
- Pick a prompt and write a short piece of fiction exactly 100 words in length.
- Add a screenshot from a word counter to the bottom of your post.
- Use the tag #dreemwotw
- Post in any community although Scholar and Scribe is recommended.
- Share your post in Dreemport ON Tuesday 30th May... NOT BEFORE, NOT AFTER or your entry will not be counted.
IT IS THE ONLY DATE AND TIMEFRAME WITHIN WHICH SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR THE S2 R4 CONTEST IN DREEMPORT.
The curation/submission cycle starts and ends at these times so there is unfortunately little room for flexibility. All valid submissions to Dreemport will be reviewed and ranked by public curators the following day.
If you want to have your voice heard in this respect, simply log on the next day and curate and rank the 5 random contest posts assigned to you. This part is highly advisable, as part of the grading process includes an allocation of points for engagement... but engagement is only assessed if you do Dreemport curation of the contest post in Dreemport on the day following the contest submission date.
Dreemport will provide an official top 5 reader's favourites to the grading team, who also reserve the right to include other entries of merit in the shortlisting for prizes. We will also be able to access the top 5 Dreemport staff entries in the background and will run two contest pools to keep staff and public entries separate 😊
The dreem-wotw team will then use a Merit grading system that incorporates some aspects of the ORIGINAL Merit Grading Model developed by @scholaris and others added by @juliamulcahy in order to determine the winners.
If you have not used Dreemport before, you will need to register on dreemport.com, which is a quick and easy process.
You may want to start by taking a look at these videos by @dreemsteem ...
If anyone has any difficulty registering and trying out the platform, please tag me or @wrestlingdesires here on this post and we will help you to get this little piece of admin out of the way as painlessly as possible 😊
