In the last 6 or 7 months, I've written several science fiction short stories, which were a ton of fun. One of them even won first place!
|The talented Ms. Atwood|
About a month ago, I received notice of another contest Ms. Atwood was running on Wattpad...this time as part of a promotion for her latest book, The Heart Goes Last. Several chapters of the book were posted on Wattpad. A writer could choose from 3 secondary characters that were presented briefly in the posted chapters and write their back story.
It sounded like fun, so I made sure to set aside some time to read the posted chapters and write something. I decided not to put pressure on myself and just finish something to upload. I finished my entry today and you can read it here: My Contest Entry.
If you have some time, please read, comment or vote!
There will be 5 winners who will have their stories read aloud at a livestreamed book event in NYC on November 7-8, 2015. Winners will be announced by November 2nd. The first place winner will receive a signed copy of The Heart Goes Last, an e-card from Margaret Atwood, and promotion of your story on Wattpad and Doubleday media platforms.
Wish me luck!
