Okay, let me introduce myself first: I'm ~randomlyinspired-21, a contributor to :icondawritersunite: and :icongreedybee: and I thought about making a prompt contest just to elevate the group a bit. :)


What makes you cry on the inside or makes you feel like something's shattered deep in that heart of yours? Is it unrequited love? A voice that can't be heard? A war inside you that just makes you bend and break? Your conscience torn to pieces after hearing the song of the sea without a conch shell, saltwater in your lips?

To cut things short, our first prompt contest theme is: Broken. What comes in your mind when you say 'Broken'? It doesn't have to be love or any of the other things I mentioned above (though you can use those if you wish). Be creative, think out-of-the-box, do whatever makes you crazy and happy at the same time! :)

:bulletblue: You have to be a member to join
:bulletblue: Entries can be poetry or prose.

:bulletblack: For poetry, there won't be a line limit or a stanza limit or any other what-nots: we understand the outlet for artistic expression in a poem so you're free with poetry.
:bulletblack: For prose, it has to be a maximum of 1500 words (MS Word can help with this, trust me :)). It will be hard for us to judge the piece consuming time and not be able to read the rest of the entries, so keep it short and simple. :)

:bulletblue: It has to be related to the word 'Broken'
:bulletblue: Mature content should have the proper content filter. There are kids in this group so please.
:bulletblue: No bashing of other contestants (failure to oblige to this will result in either a disqualification or a ban from the group)
:bulletblue: Enter them into the correct folder - (The "Broken" contest 2012 folder) otherwise it will not be counted as an entry.

Due date is on: December 23. (almost 2 weeks :)) - if you want to compromise the date please send me :icongreedybee: a note!! :D

How many entries are you allowed to submit?

Hmm well I'd say max two, but double check with the other person mentioned in the blog ; the creator of the contest :3

:) Thanks. And, um, the folder for the contest is closed. It doesn't show up on the "Submit to a group".
