Hello Everyone,

Welcome to Week 7 of our #SPILLTHEBEANS Contest. The past weeks have been excellent, and last week we got creative in a quest for finding the sacred tea or coffee and the stories of tales by an old man.
Well done all!
Thank you to everyone who has participated so far, and we invite those of you who might be thinking about it to join in.


Please watch this short video to discover the winner of last week's contest :)


All the entries showed creativity and originality which made it a great contest! Some stories stood out, but these final two had elements that made them a beautiful read.

Thanks again for raising the bar peeps!




See this week's topic below, with a countdown timer that needs to be observed. The entry deadline for posts ends on Wednesday, with the countdown timer at the top and the bottom of this post, guiding you to the cut-off time.
Late entries will be muted!

Have fun peeps!

Hello @soychalbed
Yes, it's different with more freedom. People really need to think of the plot and get creative. This way all the stories should be individual, and it's interesting to see the different things people come up it.

Yes, The contest ends on Wednesday as usual. Sorry, I had missed the Countdown Timer Setting:)
Thanks for the question.

Congratulations my friend @fabian98 and my little friend @actioncats for those fabulous stories. definitely great!!!!
