Credit to Grimm_ for the banner.

Rules

• Written material has to original. Plagarism, or any attempt, might result in a ban from further writing contests or worse.
• Has to be written by one person. No collaboration will be accepted.
• One story will be accepted per person. If you wish to change/edit your story, you can do so by follow-up Private Messages for a maximum of 3 times. Be cautious.
• If your story does not meet requirements, we will notify you (if time permits.).
• All forum rules apply.

Theme and Restrictions

The theme of the contest is plot-twists. Easy to conceptualize, hard to write away on paper without giving it away too easily. The trick to a masterful plot-twist is building a sense of control for the reader, only to shatter it at your will.

This has to be done in around 1200 words; a small number to the untrained, restless hand, perfect for the sober men with clarity of plot. Follow it strictly. Around 1200 means we can be flexible with letting 50-odd words through but don't try and push it.

Prizes

The winner of the writing contest will have the chance to change the regular ranks to whatever of their choosing for 2 weeks and bragging rights. S-B's writing community is a extensive one; winning the contest should come with its own merit. Therefore, if you have a showcase of your writing works, we will sticky your writing showcase for a month at your request.

Instructions

• Private Message your entry to VanDerLijsten in the following format:
Title:
Word Count:
Story:
• Deadline is on 18th August. Voting will take place within the next couple of days.
• Tools: Word Counter

As always, you can ask questions in this thread or you can PM VanDerLijsten but sparingly, please.

Edit : I am going to give everyone 1 more goddamn week because I know people procrastinate on writing.

Something with a non-cliche or predictable scenario that has an even less predictable outcome. (wary#thumbsup)

A story with epic twist, a group of teenages go camping one night to to their surprise they find a manic with a chainsaw.

Twist is no one dies and the befriend the manic who theyve come to understand was just lonley.

Interesting.

Sounds like the plotline for a Scary Movie film. (turkey)

Join, because why not embarrass myself?

I also have an interesting idea that I'll probably completely forget tomorrow when I'm on again. (wary)
