We all want to find out something about ourselves, something that flips the script, that shakes us from normalcy, whether that thing be an owl inviting us to Hogwarts, the friendly neighborhood Ben Kenobi revealing our high midi-chlorian levels, or Julie Andrews come to train us to rule Genovea.
Write a story or poem in fewer than 1200 words where a character discovers something extraordinary about themselves. Try to think outside the box!
The deadline is TUESDAY, March 1st, at NOON EST. Entries will be accepted immediately; one entry per person. All you need to do is:
1. Send your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org, in the body of the email
2. Follow Extraordinary Contest
As always, no contest promotion. To ensure the blind voting isn’t compromised, please refrain from posting your entry on Figment until the winner is announced.
After the 1st, we’ll put up finalists for the contest, which you can then vote on to choose the winner! The winners will receive a $35 gift certificate to ThinkGeek. (If you don’t know that website, you should. Silly Rhymes for Belligerent Children should not be missed.)
Good luck and happy writing!
