Contests Held

Creativity Contest: The Sealed Safe (Closed)

Last week you received a mysterious letter about a dinner guest arriving at six. The guest was yours to invent, along with building the anticipation and laying out the setting. The results were pretty humorous with some unique timing and guests who showed up at the end. I appreciate everyone participating and encourage you to take a look at other’s takes you can find in the entries’ comments. Together, we can spread the joy of writing and dig in the garden of imagination. 🌷

For this week’s prompt, I want you to imagine you are a thief. Whatever motive you have, good, bad, or both, is up to you. Whatever setting and condition the safe is in is also up to you. It could be underwater, in a mine, in a delapidated mansion…Take the wheel of literature and drive us there!

But here’s the twist: you don’t get what’s inside the safe. Do you crack it and the contents are missing? Or do you lose your nerve and get caught? Ponderings. Take it and fly and add a psychological twist for $1000, Alex.

The rules are below. No winners/losers, per usual. We all just want to see your spin on this one. Pass the crowbar, would you?

Creativity Contest: The Mysterious Dinner Guest (Closed)

Last week we came across a Treasure Chest and you guys delivered. Please check out in the comments below that entry to see some pretty creative takes on treasure chests in all sorts of backdrops of life. I’m thrilled and honored to get a glimpse into other people’s imaginations and what direction they take with a few words and parameters.

For this week’s prompt, I want you to imagine you received a mysterious letter in the mail asking to prepare an elegant dinner for an unnamed guest. The letter has no return address, but is written on thick paper with one of those wax, emblem seals. The guest is to arrive sharply at six o’clock. Like with last week, the scene and setting are yours. Build up some anticipation, but eventually you need to let your readers know who arrived for dinner and why. Take this and fly, fellow writers. 😊✏️

The rules are below. No winners/losers again this week. We’re focusing on delving into our imaginations and seeing what’s behind that dinner table vase in the next room.
