Speculative Minds Flash Fiction Contest: What Do You See?

in #contest5 years ago

For 1 STEEM, what do you see? The garden gnomes will give 1 STEEM to the best flash fiction story in the speculative fiction genre. Look at this image and tell a story no longer than 300 words:

A story must have a beginning, a middle, and an end. There should be at least two characters, conflict, and a plot. What do you see in this image?

Here's how to enter:

  • First, resteem this post.
  • Look at the image above and write a story inspired by it; the story should be no longer than 300 words.
  • Write your story on your Steemit blog.
  • One of your five tags must be "speculativefiction".
  • Come back to this post and link to your story.

Your story should fall into the speculative fiction genre. That means it should be science fiction, horror, fantasy, or something weird. Hell, you can even mix those genres together in a mashup of speculative goodness. We wouldn't complain.

Deadline: When this post pays out.

What are you waiting for? Get to writing! Three entries minimum for the prize to be awarded. Be the first to enter.

Hi there. I found your post in Crowdmind link-drop. Very interesting topic but I don't know how to write that, speculative fiction. Any example I can refer?

Speculative fiction is a broad genre. You can read up on it here.

Also, read some of the content posted here.

Great idea for a contest! I will do my best to write and submit an entry this week.

Thanks. Hope to see you join in the fun.

Thanks for using eSteem!
