Hello, fellow writers and steemians!

Welcome to the 2nd fiction writing competition week 1.

I had been quite busy the past few weeks and didn't have much time to host the competition so I had to hold it off for a while. I also had a few things I needed to work out for the sake of the competition and evolve it to one that would have a lasting effect on everyone. I have a lot of work to do on making this competition stand out from the rest but I am sure it will grow on its own with your continued support.

What is Fiction Competition?

I know there are a few rules that I have to change but for now I will be leaving them as they are. I will be setting up a new introduction post with the changes done after this competition is over. For now those of you who would like to learn more about the Fiction competition please check the introduction post here.

Writing Prompt!

I know you have all waited a long time for this so I won't take up much of your time. The writing prompt for the second round of the fiction competition is as follows:

Suffering from depression...a man feels that the world is no longer worth living for and decides to jump off a high place to end it all. As he hits the ground with his eyes closed, he feels a powerful splash hit him and wakes up to find in his own way that he is 10 years old again.

To be honest I don't know why I chose this prompt for the second round...it's a very emotional one. I have faith that all of you will spin this into a wonderful story that will help everyone. :)

Submission Time & Rules:

All the rules are already there in the introduction post but for the sake of everyone, I will post them here again.

1: Follow @kyrios, Upvote and Resteem the competition post.
2: Make sure the short story has a minimum of 750 words and a maximum of 1500 words.
3: The short story should be based around the prompt given in the competition post.
4: Comment the link to your Steemit short story in the competition post.

Please drop your story links in the comments by the 14th of October.

Do also let your friends know so that we can get loads of participants and a lot of interesting stories to read. Good luck to all the writers and much love to all the wonderful people out there. :) <3


Note: If anyone would be willing to provide a better image for the competition. It would be really appreciated. Thank you very much. :)

I loved the format of this competition and had really enjoyed the process of writing and creating my entry for it as it inspired me to tap into many resources in me, including invoking imagery to help tell the story. I hope for many others to come as I do not seek to win but rather invoke more varieties of stories to come from this well thought-out prompt.

Kudos to my fellow contestants, lets shake the Earth!

The first submission. It was an awesome story and I look forward to seeing what other ways you will surprise us in the future. :)

I read it and feel it's a cool work of fiction but when do we get to read your submission for the contest using the Competition's prompt. You have interesting ideas and I'm just having a good feeling that I'm gonna see something amazing when you do finally submit your contest entry. :)

Looking forward to your story! :)

Nice story there mate. But sadly I can't enter this into the competition as it did not follow the competition rules nor was it written according to the prompt provided. But you did a great job on it. :)

Thanks for your comment on my story.

Hola @kyrios
te envíe upvote porque me gusta el concurso pero no entiendo mucho las reglas porque soy nueva en esta comunidad para participar... será en otro momento!
Gracias por leerme!

I ended up trying my hand for this competition. crosses fingers
Also-- while you said short story, I kind of made it a oneshot that can be expanded in the future sweats it felt like a curious prompt.

Also, if you liked the image, you can use it ^^ just copy the credits in the post.

@p3paula, really liked reading through your story. Sorry my internet connection is on and off but great work there :) Good luck with the competition.

ah thank you~ and yeh no worries with the internet, my place has been chaotic in connecting lately-- was lucky the work was released before it got wonky ahaha

Read it and loved it!

This competition is going to be awesome, many good writers are starting to crawl out the woodwork and it seems we'll all be making awesome magic this on this contest alone! :)

ah~ thank you for the kind words :3
yes reading through may words and 750-1500 is enough bite sized to leave you satisfied or possibly craving more :D
excited lots
