The holidays are drawing to a close, and that means it's the perfect time for another contest (not really, but just let me have this one)! Seeing the popularity of November's blog contest, and the distinct lack of writing contests on a site with a surprisingly vibrant writing community, I wanted to get a feeler for how many people would be interested in such a endeavor.

As with most contests around here, I am hoping for at least 8 contestants, though if I get less we can work something out. Here are the rules I am tentatively putting out:
  1. The stories must range from 500-3000 words. That way, these should not be time-consuming in any way, though if you choose to write a longer story you can.
  2. These stories must be in English (non-English phrases are accepted as long as they are short)
Each prompt will be announced at the start of the round.

Prizes are available. The winner and I will work out a prize that is fair and desirable.

If we can get two more entries, I can do a full four-round tournament bracket! If not, we'll figure something out with what we have. First come first serve for the last two spots!

Ah, I see we have both taken a liking to the alliteration of the “j”. Sorry, just found that interesting.

Same case with my name. It’s amazing where random thoughts lead you.

You are welcome to, but it doesn't fit any of the prompts I have in mind. Thus, I don't believe you would be very successful in this competition with that entry, but it is up to you.

You should also do a second and third prize too, that'd be cool. If grammar and spelling is gonna boost me up points then there's my chance haha.

Each round of the competition will have a new prompt, and so you'll have to write something new each time.
