Rose Hey, everybody! Rose

 Well, here's the contest I promised you. The idea for this came last night, while my family reminisced about a doll I used to have when I was small. It was a nice expensive gift from a distant aunt of mine. I mean, the thing was really pretty to start with: I can remember it having a fancy pink dress and a glass face and little brown curls. You know, the kind you'd expect rich old ladies to have, I suppose. Everything was fine until I dropped the thing and its face shattered. Then my mom tried to fix it with a hot glue gun, and the results were horrifying. Looking back, I was never afraid of it as a kid, but my older siblings hated it.

It really made me think about how we view things when we're children, and was the inspiration for this contest. Now, enough boring background; let's get into the big idea.

Rose Objective Rose Write a piece from a child's perspective describing something terrifying.

Rose Rules Rose

Bullet; Pink Deadline: January 18th, 2014

Bullet; Pink I'm accepting all forms of literature for this: poetry, short stories, vignettes, monologues, etc. As long as it's literature, it's good to go.

Bullet; Pink Poetry should not exceed 75 lines; all other forms should not exceed 2,500 words.

Bullet; Pink Content will be judged on creativity, execution, and how far you can run with this prompt. 

Bullet; Pink Please include a link to this journal in the Author's Comments of your entry.

Bullet; Pink Post a comment with a link to your piece on this journal when you finish writing it. 

I think that's all! Now on to the part you've all been waiting for...

Well were there any tragic events in your young childhood? That can be a way to get you started, though sad if you had any ;o; Mine is based of off something personal myself. I wasn't a young child so I had to put it in kido's point of view, so I guess you can use any tragic event from your life if any. Or if not someone else's you were close to at the time of their incident. It might be easier to get your creative juices going if it's a subject close to your heart..... That is something I never thought I'd say.

Very interesting! :nod:

I have a question:

Does the child have to be human? (if I made a fantasy theme for example or maybe just a twist on an idea?)
