You might’ve heard me mention this Writer’s Unite contest before, and now today is finally the day! So, let’s get to the details first, and then I shall give you my writing prompt! You may use mine or any of the other’s that they post on their blogs, or combine them too. It’s up to you. But please do use one of the prompts to include in your story. Thank you! Also, at the bottom of this post, one of the judges put together  ‘bio questions’ so you can know about the each of us, if you care to read that. :) Then you must pick up your pen (or your laptop…) and write! We look forward to your entries!!

3) Everything! I have a ton of different stuff I am working on right now, or have plans for: fantasy, futuristic, historical fiction, and a few other things as well. :)

4) When I’m not reading and writing I’m usually either dreaming up stories, traveling and doing outdoor adventures, or on Pinterest.  :)

5) I like to listen to a lot of different music. I have a playlist for when I’m writing, but for everyday life I like to listen to stuff like Jamie Grace, Moriah Peters, For King and Country, and similar artists/songs.

2) Oh that’s a tough one…I love many genres, but two of my top favourites are Christian fantasy and Biblical fiction.

3) Christian fantasy with no magic, and a sort of ‘medieval’ ish feel to it.

4) Well…I’m almost always reading or writing, but I also love throwing my tomahawk/knives at my log target, and just being with my family.

5)I don’t have a specific favourite kind of music really…is TobyMac a genre? XD I like upbeat, exciting Christian music.

6) None? I’m not into Marvel stuff.

 

 

 

Sierra– 

My rep pic (sorry it's so late)

1) My name is Sierra, though I also go by Sparrow a lot online

2) It depends on my mood, I read a lot of different genres. If I had to pick one, I’d probably say fantasy.

3) Again, I write all different genres. Probably fantasy is my “favorite”.

4) I like drawng and… uh… wow I sound like a boring person. I don’t do all that much besides read and write and draw. I love photography though.

5) Also depends on my mood… *hides* I’m not a consistent person. I just have a bunch of spotify playlists with groups of artists and bands together. Right now I’m listening to the TobyMac and Capital Kings one, but last week it was BarlowGirl, ZOEgirl, Addison Road, and Superchic(K)

6) Team Cap!

  1. Hi, Raechel! I love what you’re doing here, hosting a contest like this. Sharing some writer love.:) Sounds fun!:)

    I don’t know if I’ll get a chance to participate, but I was wondering what the word count limit is, the accepted genre(s), and if you have links to share of the other judges picture prompts. (Just in case:)) Thanks!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Lesa! This contest was actually Soleil’s idea, and we all pooled together to host. It should be fun indeed!
      Glad you found the wordcount! I couldn’t remember if I had added it. ^.^ I think most genre(s) are accepted, as long as they’re clean. And sure thing – just three of the others have posted their prompts so far (except Aiden, who doesn’t have a blog; he’s just a judge), and those are:
      Faith: http://fireflysstoryspace.blogspot.com/2016/04/writers-unite-writing-contest.html
      Soleil: http://reviewsbysoleil.blogspot.com/2016/04/writing-contest.html
      Jesseca: http://jessaswhimsicalwritings.blogspot.com/2016/04/writers-unite-writing-contest.html

      And then each of the blogs in general are linked in their names on this post – just click on their names (like “R.J. Steel”) and it will bring you to their blogs. :)
      Hope that helps! And we’d love to have your entry if you’re able to, but if not, no worries. :)

  2. Oops! Just saw the word count limit, sorry.:) I was wondering if these will be publicly posted somewhere or just read by the judges and kept private? Thanks, again.:)

    1. I forgot to answers this question – sorry! Hmm, I think they’ll just be read by the judges, but I’m not actually entirely sure – I’ll check though!
