Enter Quibblo Writing Contest #12

Love Is In the Air

Valentine’s Day approacheth, so here’s your romance-related topic:

Start your writing with a Valentine’s Day poem (at least 12 lines long) that your character finds (in a bottle, in a diary, in your locker, or…?). Your story goes back and describes how the poem came to be written (yesterday, a year ago, a century ago, or…?) and then moves forward to show how your character responds as a result of finding it. Does a relationship ensue? Does it end well? Only you know the answer. Now tell us!

Give it an interesting title (don’t include “Quibblo’s Contest,” “QC,” or similar), and remember to:

  • Check spelling and grammar
  • Hit “Enter” twice after every paragraph, for readability
  • Tag it with WC12 when you’re sure it’s finished
  • Share it with all your friends, both on and off Quibblo

On February 12, we’ll select three winners to showcase on the Quibblo home page. Let’s start writing!

Deadline: 11:59 pm (EST), Sunday, February 10, 2013.

Give it a descriptive title (not “Quibblo’s Contest,” “QC,” or similar), tag it with QC11, and share it with all your friends, both on and off Quibblo. Hurry, because on Monday, we’ll select three winners to showcase on the Quibblo home page. Quiz us now!

Which Character Are You?

So you took a random “What Popular Movie or Television Series Character Are You?” quiz you found on Quibblo. What you didn’t realize is how eerily accurate it would be: You actually became that character! Here’s the writing contest topic:

Describe what life is like for you now as this movie/television character. (Just pick a character you like. You don’t have to take a particular quiz first.) What do your parents think? How do you respond to your friends’ texts? Do you frantically scramble to get back to your friends, family and daily routine… or do you decide that this is the life you always wanted to live? Ready? And… action!

Give it an interesting title (don’t include “Quibblo’s Contest,” “QC,” or similar), and remember to:

  • Check spelling and grammar
  • Hit “Enter” twice after every paragraph, for readability
  • Tag it with WC11 when you’re sure it’s finished
  • Share it with all your friends, both on and off Quibblo

On January 29, we’ll select three winners to showcase on the Quibblo home page. Ok, now get in character!

Deadline: 11:59 pm (EST), Sunday, January 27, 2013.

What Are Your Writing Pet Peeves?

2013: Time to start out fresh, to get rid of bad habits, especially in quizzes and stories. This quiz contest has two branches (and two different tags), so feel free to submit quizzes of both types. The two topics are:

(1) Create a quiz that will help us learn some valuable do’s and don’ts when creating a quiz. There are some easy ways to go from “so-so” to “excellent” when making quizzes! (tag: QC10-quizzes).

(2) For all of you up-and-coming authors, make a quiz that teaches us some common pitfalls when writing stories (tag: QC10-stories).

For each type of quiz, try to include your worst pet peeves. The goal is to help all of us create better quizzes and write more readable stories.

Give it a descriptive title (not “Quibblo’s Contest,” “QC,” or similar), tag it with QC10-quizzes or QC10-stories, and share it with all your friends, both on and off Quibblo. Hurry, because on Monday, we’ll select ________ winners (maybe many!) for each type of quiz to showcase on the Quibblo home page. Get started now!

Deadline: 11:59 pm (EST), Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013. See this post for the rules and winner selection.
