  • Valentine's Day Contest 2016!

    Hey Episodians,

    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue,
    A Valentine’s contest waiting for you!

    Here are the requirements to enter our Valentine’s Day Contest!
    1. Your story needs to be a romance story.
    2. It must have “Valentine’s Day” in the title (e.g. Valentine’s Day: Life Is Like A Box of Heart-Shaped Chocolates). Stories without “Valentine’s Day” in the title will be disqualified.
    3. You must fill out this Google form so we know you have submitted your story. Please have your story submitted by February 1st, 2016.
    4. You MUST use at least one of the following new INK-style Valentine’s Day clothing items:

    You can either start a new story or incorporate outfits into stories you’ve already started, so the story doesn’t have to be brand new.

    Winners from this contest will be featured in a special Valentine’s Day section in the Episode app, and featured on our social media accounts! We’ll figure out the winners based on highest levels of reader engagement.

    P.S. We’ll also have a special Best Directing prize go out to the writer whose story has the best directing. Their story will be featured on our Instagram and Twitter, as well as get a special shout-out in the forums

    Happy writing!

    The Episode Team

    P.S. This is a repost of the original contest post here, just in case anyone missed it in the announcements:

    Valentine's Day:
    Wasted Roses

    by Genevieve M.
    also the author of Dripping Mascara

    Romance | Drama | Mystery | Tragedy

    Cover: See how I made the cover completely from scratch on @genducation (Instagram)
    Length: Four chapters so far, with an average of 1600 lines per chapter

    TEASER ∙ Join Rose as she navigates remembrance, loss, and love in this small town with very big drama, and attempts to move past the roses she wasted just as she is blindsided by the fact that she herself is wasting in the face of unspeakable pain...

    FULL SUMMARY ∙ Returning as the only other primary care doctor in a 20 mile radius to a very small town from which she "escaped" 11 years prior, Roseanne "Rose" Brown feels both nostalgic and bitter. She finds herself unexpectedly nostalgic because she didn't realize how much she underappreciated the simple charm of the farm she grew up in, or how much she missed her dear Granddaddy's hugs after a long day. And yet, an agonizingly familiar bitterness suddenly eats at her when she discovers just how shockingly little some things have changed from the days she spent in her youth wasting "teardrops on her guitar"...

            More Detailed Summary: In this story, you play as a seventeen year old girl named Ellie who lost everything when she was diagnosed with leukemia. She's started to lose hope that life and love are still possible, but when an earnest stranger who seems bent on helping her find joy in life again shows up, her entire world is turned upside down. Suddenly, she's not so sure she's ready to die anymore. As well as playing as Ellie, you're also following the life of a doctor fresh out of med school and excited to start her new job: Renee. Placed under the command of the mysterious Dr. Anderson, she's determined to figure him out before Valentine's Day and maybe, just maybe, find a date for her sister's party along the way.
