    Default Weekly Writing Contest 72

    On Thursday a topic will be chosen and posted by the previous weeks winner. Then everyone who wants to enter will post their piece in the thread before 12:00 PM (-8:00 GMT) Thursday. So that is Wednesday night/early Thursday Morning. Then the previous winner will judge all the pieces and pick the new winner and post it in the entry thread sometime on Thursday (try and do it as early as you can). The weeks winner will then pick the topic and make a new thread and it starts all over again. Remember this is your chance to shine!!!

    Rules:

    1. All forms of writing are welcome, whether it be poetry, short stories, essays, fan fiction, or whatever.
    2. All entries must be under 500 words
    3. All entries will be rated no higher than R this will be at the mods discretion. All entries rated over PG-13 must be under spoiler tags with a warning!
    4. The week's judge's decision is final and absolute. There no whining or complaining about another piece being better or the judge not being able to judge. On a flip note lets try and keep it as fair and impartial as possible.
    5. Critique will be allowed in another thread, but must remain constructive. Just saying 'your piece sucks' is not allowed and will be dealt with accordingly. Everyone will be trying their best so lets not try to hurt feelings. On the flip side learn to take criticism it will help you become a better writer.
    6. Let's have fun with it. This will give you a chance to read others people's writing and let others read yours.
    7. A default judge will pick a new winner and topic if the week's judge goes MIA.
    8. If for some reason you can't fulfill your duties. Please PM Sarah so that she will be able to take appropriate action so the contest doesn't suffer delays.
    9. Have fun!!!

    A black bird with an orange beak hopping around.
    Soft murmurs in the library.
    Crisp sound of books being browsed.

    Ang knows why she came here today. She wants to be a writer. She wants to be able to escape the boredom of her life as a K-positive. Only in her imagination can she be a pilot, an explorer, a researcher. Only in her dreams can she find the explanation of the disease that affected Earth a thousand years ago.
    But today, she just can't find inspiration...
    Is it because of the acid rain that hasn't stopped for days? Is it because she's been told by her tutor to "stop losing her time and energy"? .. She has no idea. She can only see the effect; she has no idea today.
    "... But I HAVE to write!!!!" she tells herself. "I have to practice everyday so Dewam will have no choice but admit that my destiny is to be a writer!!!"
    The white electronic sheet seems to defy her and she feels like she's going to burst in tears. Or maybe she'll fly it across the room... She shuts everything and turns toward the window. The rain. A car. Another car. A man, in the next building, comes to the window and stretches (maybe she should do the same; it would help relieve stress at least). A car. The man has gone back to his desk. A car stops in mid-air; it's the food delivery guy.
    Ang gets up to open the window. An odd design on the young man's shirt catches her eyes: it is a cat. It's been years since cats had gone extinct. What an odd drawing... why is this animal laying on a side with it's paws raised?... Ang feels the energy flowing to her brain; curiosity has been awakened; inspiration is on it's way.
