Um okay, so, I joined another writing contest (Can I scream now?). I do make up pretty good* stories in my head, but, my grammar stinks. I think I need to review all of the grammar goodies before I start writing
*as in, okay stories. trying to be modest!
Now that I have reviewed the common grammar mistakes, I might be ready to write.
The Prompt is, endings. I have a great idea!
Did you like it? Okay never mind. Bad idea. *Takes deep breath* LETS DO THIS!
Story Rules(Copied from Ariana’s blog ): You will be given a word prompt, and judged based on your adherence to it.
There is a word limit of 1,000 words, and any story that goes above this will get points docked off. (See judging criteria.)
All stories must be appropriate, and profanity, and graphic descriptions will result in automatic elimination and loss of the round.
Your stories must be finished within a week. If they are not, you will forfeit the round to someone on the waiting list.
Oof, well, okay! I’m not sure if it’s still open, but I’ll do it anyways.
I think I’m ready to start! Here it goes!
In the cold of winter, everything is bleak. The world seems covered in thick sleek snow. Oh how I wish, that spring comes again. To be able to climb on a tree’s now frosted limbs. The fire is hot, and it warms me and Mama while we wait for Papa. Worried he might be trapped in the snow, we pray to our Father in heaven to save him from the dreadful cold. I cannot withhold this excitement, for it is now May when things are beginning, and the cold of Winter is finally ending. No more fear of sickness, that can swallow us whole. And knowing that our food won’t go old. Yes the world isn’t heaven, and winter will come again, but for now we should thank God for the Spring that he has sent thee. Winter has ended. Not forever, but for now. Unlike when the world ends, it will end forever. Hallelujah to the Lord!!!
Well, wish me luck!!!!! I just sent it!
