    Default Weekly Writing Contest 78

    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!!!

    the topic is personal loss and i lost a lot of friends and i miss the days that we spent together so i wrote
    this poem and it is called "I miss those days"

    I miss those days
    I miss that rain
    I miss those clouds
    Grey bluish white
    Extending
    Carried by cold wind
    Filled with rains
    Cold drops of water
    Wet floors
    Everywhere
    Wet buildings
    And wet people
    Facing the cold dry wind
    And yet everything seemed so
    Warm
    It felt like home
    That instinct power
    Calling us where ever we are
    Making us open our arms
    And let it go
    Into our hearts
    And beyond
    Through our backs
    Give us wings
    Then travel
    Through our vessels
    Reaching every part of our bodies
    Making us transparent
    Making the wind go through us
    Making the rain a part of our soul
    Making winter
    So wet and cold
    With no snow
    No death
    No freezing
    Just getting wet
    And never drying up
    Becoming a part of it
    A part of winter
    A part of every thing
    I miss those days
    I really miss them

    M-Van Kardada I really liked your entry. It was simple yet I completely felt and understood the emotion behind them. It was a really good read and I'm glad you entered

    4thseal - beautifully written as always, superb syntax and imagery. I have nothing to critique in terms of the writing whatsoever. I would have personally enjoyed it more if it was less ambiguous

    The winner this week is 4th, grats :3
