(How cool is this view though 😮)
Hey guys, hope everyone is having an awesome day (so far, although this might change with what you're about to read. Only joking, I hope it doesn't! :))
If you don't know me, then hi. :D *pause* My name is Iqra, I'm 17 and I write poetry that tries very hard to not flop, and sometimes other writing stuff that has somehow found a home on Commaful.
I know I've seen a lot of new people in the comments and I thought I should introduce myself again first! (I will do a q&a post later.)
I know I've seen a lot of new people in the comments and I thought I should introduce myself again first! (I will do a q&a post later.) I've recently realised that I've been on this site for nearly two years now. And I've never ran any contests or competitions, so here's my first one! This will be based on...
I was thinking about the amount of self-love I would like to reach one day, so it became obvious to me that the contest I'd like to run would be one about celebrating members and their features.
Hence, the 'Mirror Musings Contest!' (I know, the name sucks but I don't know what else to call it :D)
So here goes:
It can come in any form, a poem, a short story, a drawing, idk, anything! No word limit, you can make a post and tag me or send it to me through DM and then I will be sure to see it.
It will run for about a week, so it will end on Monday 24th, but I'll shoutout this post and put a reminder for the time there.
The prompt, as mentioned before, is that I would like you take one of your features, it can be a physical feature, such as your nose, eyes, elbows(?), laugh, anything that makes up your body, or a characteristic of yours, that you really enjoy or love.
For example, if you admire the amount of love you give away to people, write about it! (An example of non-physical characteristic.)
If you think that you're a selfless person, or that you make people feel good about themselves, write about it!
Anything you love about yourself, make a post and I will decide between 1-3 overall winners and shoutout any other pieces that I enjoyed too. :)
Of course, the whole point of this contest is to enjoy writing about yourself and the things that make up your body/personality, and hopefully sharing this with other members too!
Just to summarise:
-Any type of post (poem, story, artwork, description)
-Any type of post (poem, story, artwork, description) -Runs for about a week (will probably extend this past the 24th)
-Any type of post (poem, story, artwork, description) -Runs for about a week (will probably extend this past the 24th) -No word limit
-Any type of post (poem, story, artwork, description) -Runs for about a week (will probably extend this past the 24th) -No word limit -Theme/prompt: an element of your body or personality that you love and enjoy :)
-I will shoutout my favourite posts and declare 1-3 overall winners.
I hope this doesn't flop and sounds like an enjoyable thing to write about?
My worst nightmare is no one participating, in that case, I will delete this post and bask in my embarassment for the rest of... my teenage years. But I hope people enjoy this!
Thank you, hope everyone has a great day and if you have any questions, don't forget to leave them in the comments!
I will try to write a poem today so I can give people an example of the kind of thing to write about. :D <33 (I'm basic, so it'll probably be about my eyes, again. :')
Stay safe, don't forget to wear a mask :P
