Default Creative Writing Competition 2020

I imagine that a lot of us have some extra free time and think that having another MB creative writing competition would be fun. In the past what we've done is had people submit their pieces via PM to keep it anonymous. Then the stories are posted in a new thread and we vote for the best one in addition to guessing who wrote each submission. Most people do short stories, but we can keep it loose on the format to include poetry, scripts, Powerpoint presentations, etc. this time around to get more submissions. We should also get a theme going to make comparing and voting a little easier.

For the theme, we will all be using the same title for our stories. The title that we'll use for this round is Colossus.

Anyone is free to join. To submit your piece, paste your story into https://pastebin.com/ and send me the link. The deadline for story submissions is May 8.

Have fun y'all.

I’ll throw my hat in the ring just for fun but don’t expect much.

Hells ja that's enough to make it official. Anyone's allowed to join in until the submission date for your pieces, which I'll announce later on.

In the meantime, does anyone have any ideas for a theme? Vaguer is betterer.

I think you should pick a title and we use that as the prompt.
