BDCommunity Presents: Last Bell of Montezuma!! [Writing Contest- 100 Hive in Prizes][Final Week]


All good things must come to an end!

With that, begins the prelude to the last week of our contests. The final bell chimed only when the end was nigh!

What a thrilling ride we have been on so far haven't we? We got to meet with so many people, read their fun tales of life, their intimate experiences, travels, and what not! We explored through the uncharted territories of the human psyche and that too in a fun way. But, now everything is going to change for one last time.

As we are going to close this season of weekly writing contests, we have decided to diversify the topic a little. This week, what the participants have to do is only write fiction. Yeah, too easy. LOL. Fair warning, it is not! There are a set of rules you have to follow. Or to put it more lightly, these are some of the most crucial advice given by our honourable judge throughout the past contests. And following them would be very critical if you want to secure a place among the winners!

So here it goes:

Originality. This is of absolute urgency for an entry to even get to the shortlists. Sure, you might get influenced by any works of literature and formulate a story loosely based on similar notions. If you do that, mention the original work somewhere in the entry.

Prose and Flow. From beginning to end, the post should keep the reader engaged, and the writing flows.

Style or destruction of Style: (In our judges own words) I am a big fan of "lack of formal structure" in sentence construction. However, that comes after you know how to construct a formal sentence. You learn the classic sentence construction first….. then break the rules. Just like Picasso

Grammatical Errors: Hopefully, this doesn't need any more explaining to do!

Finally, Trying too hard and missing the fun altogether.

This week's Topic: Write a Fiction.
