Two Sisters Writing and Publishing February 2018 Writing Contest

A Dog's Life. Write a short story from the point of view of your dog, a stray dog, your neighbor's dog, or your dream dog. Please use first person. What does a dog really think about? According to this article in Discover, "The mind of a dog is roughly equivalent to that of a human who is 2 to 2½ years old." What do you think of that? More importantly, what does your dog think of that?! 

Let your creative juices flow!

Two Sisters Writing and Publishing February 2018 Writing Contest

“A cat has absolute emotional honesty,” Hemingway once wrote. “Human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.” Write a short story about a person who becomes a cat. What does the cat do, say, feel, etc., that the human person wouldn't, couldn't, didn't? Explore Hemingway's quote, which I found in this article, or not. Rewrite Kafka's The Metamorphosis if you want!

Have fun.

Two Sisters Writing and Publishing March 2018 Writing Contest

"Isn't it amazing how much stuff we get done the day before vacation?" so said Zig Ziglar.

Write a short story that takes place on the day before the vacation. Does your protagonist go into whirlwind mode and get stuff done? What happens that's momentous? Where's the vacation going to take place? Is it spring break? A day at the spa? A mental health day? A honeymoon? A cruise? Something unexpected? How long is the vacation going to be? Who else will be there? The possibilities are endless... 

Take it away!
