Hey, since the Story Contest #3 is over, I thought it might be fun to have another one. So this story will be short, only a couple pages, and written for this story. You can't use one of your earlier works for this. And the story has to be based off the color white. I know it sounds a little hard, but you can write anything thing as long as white is in there, person in a pycho ward, blind person who can only see white, first snowfall, etc. So have fun, and I'll figure out the deadline later.

and if you think that idea is super hard, dumb or impossible its ok, I can change it to something else.

you can do the symbolism or the actual thing or anything else you want, white just has to be a major part of the story

message 32: by Sarah, The Flying Monkey (new)

Sarah | 279 comments Mod
thats boring


message 33: by Olivia, everything in moderation :P (new)

Olivia (livibooks3) | 229 comments Mod
Hmmm... perhaps we can do both, especially if we're all cats...
*comes back from random tangent*
Seriously, we have to extend the deadline. I'm sorry i haven't personally submitted, I have been incredibly busy. How about we extend the deadline a month, and Sarah, would you mind sending out a moderator message about it? I can't stay on long...


message 34: by Mallory (new)

Mallory (malloryrose17) Yeah - school's been crazy, and I haven't had a whole ton of consecutive down time.


message 35: by Olivia, everything in moderation :P (new)

Olivia (livibooks3) | 229 comments Mod
yeah same... thanksgiving break is soon, and people will have time then... but for me, break starts in 10 days... idk... what does the other mod think? :P


message 36: by Olivia, everything in moderation :P (new)

Olivia (livibooks3) | 229 comments Mod
lol. Sounds good to me- since "the other mod" hasn't responded, I'll send out a message about it.


message 37: by Sarah, The Flying Monkey (new)

Sarah | 279 comments Mod

Sarah | 279 comments Mod
i wake up at 6, its bloody awful, especially on weekends. and no thx, i'll just keep flying monkey


message 39: by Olivia, everything in moderation :P (new)

Olivia (livibooks3) | 229 comments Mod
haha. anyway, its fine u didnt respond, i just needed to send out a message asap. anyway, at least one person responded, so hopefully we'll get more activity even if not more story writing...


message 40: by Olivia, everything in moderation :P (new)

Olivia (livibooks3) | 229 comments Mod
of course lol. i'll try to get the time together to write, if i can, also.


message 41: by Sarah, The Flying Monkey (new)

Sarah | 279 comments Mod
well this isn't working. Maybe we should just delay this untill forever and do another contest that would be quicker to write, like poetry or something


message 42: by Olivia, everything in moderation :P (new)

Olivia (livibooks3) | 229 comments Mod
This is definitely not working. I feel bad, but I don't even have a moment to write lately... teachers seem to want to cram as much homework and as many tests as possible into each week without making us all explode


message 43: by Mallory (new)

Mallory (malloryrose17) I know what you mean. My Christmas break is coming up really soon - like, four days. Maybe I'll get some writing in then. I just got an idea for this one thinking about that - so I'll try and get one done within the next week or so.


message 44: by Olivia, everything in moderation :P (new)

Olivia (livibooks3) | 229 comments Mod
Sounds great! If we could get just one or 2 more submissions we could close this contest. Please anyone who can try to sneak some writing into your schedule!


message 45: by Mallory (new)

Mallory (malloryrose17) Ahkay. Well, I've been working on it for the past few days. I've nearly got a page xP. I should post it up pretty soon. I just have to work in the symbolism and wrap it up.

Olivia (livibooks3) | 229 comments Mod
That would be amazing Mallie, thanks!

Sorry, didn't catch that. Do you want some water?


message 49: by Sarah, The Flying Monkey (new)

Sarah | 279 comments Mod
Minnesooota doesn't have water, they have pop.


message 50: by Sarah, The Flying Monkey (new)

Sarah | 279 comments Mod
I'm just telling you that they don't have water, however they do have pop if you want that instead
