    CONTEST!!!
    WRITE A STORY
    thinking smiley.jpg

    Hi Pals,

    Grab a snack sit on a couch and release all your creativity and craziness. It's time for all of you to kindle your thoughts and come up with a story.
    I have posted set of pictures below. All you have to do is see the pictures and come up with a story.




    Rules and Regulations:
    1. All the story entries should be posted on or before 22-Feb-14.
    2. Multiple entries are not allowed.
    3.The story should cover at least 3 pictures but can be in any order. If you add more it is well and good. But do mention in the 1st line which pictures you have used. You can just write the number of the picture.
    4. Entries must only be sent via PM to : Arunarc; Marun;
    5. All the entries will be posted on 23-Feb-14 in an open thread for voting. (The name of writer won't be revealed).
    6. The voting closes on 28-Feb-14
    7. The winning entry and writers of all the other entries will be posted on 1-Mar-14.
    8. The number of words can be 800 maximum and not beyond it.

    The reason for not letting you guys post your entry open in forum is because that will be a spoiler. Want you guys to come up with any sort of Genre right from horror to wackiest one. You won't be knowing what other entries have. Its going to be quite surprising. All right here is the picture! Start scratching your keyboards!

    You will get some candies for sure!

    Really it is such a good thought and the rules are also good. Interesting contest. Nice initiative Marun.

    Edit: Out of all the pics, we can pick any one and create a story with respect to the choosen picture. Am I correct in my understanding?

    Hi Pallavi4me,

    Thanks for showing interest.
    The story must cover all the pictures not just one. But it can be of any order. :)

    Lucky entries would be in open forum will be posted by Marun & Aruna, so that we will not get to know the author's name at the time of voting. It would eliminate any favouritism we have towards authors. I think it is a good idea.

    Hi Nallinidv & Visasri,For 3rd one, its all about your imagination. Take it as sky, black hole or anything. :) It's all about how to see it and frame the story. 8th picture has some text in it. Click on the picture and open it in a new window. It gives you bigger view.
