So I’ve got a couple of ideas for a contest run by us - the fans of Episode, who would be interested in taking part? Also, which of the following two ideas do you think would work best?
Rememberance Day is 1 week away and obviously I’m not expecting people to get a story together in that time but I thought to honour the day that it would be nice to do a story about the military. It could be about; the families that are left behind when someone is away serving their country, a group of veterans coming together years later to mark the anniversary of their platoon’s involvement in a major battle or about how a member of the armed forces has to cope with returning to civillian life.
I feel like most stories have female main characters, so I thought, what about writing a story you might originally have written for a girl but having a male as the central character. Examples might be: falling in love with a bad girl, adjusting to life at college/university or raising a child on their own.
What do you think of these ideas? Below is a poll that I will leave open for 4 days to see if you like these two ideas or if you don’t feel free to suggest an idea of your own. After that i will open the contest properly if there’s enough interest. How does this all sound?
- Military Contest
- Male Central Character Contest
****** EDIT ******
I’ve decided that after the poll ends on Friday that I’m going to have the closing date be 6pm UK time on 31st January 2020 by which time you must have the first 3 chapters uploaded. Hope that’s ok as i know some people may have exams. I think 12 weeks should be plenty of time
