Top Story - May 2024

I have started my own series of unofficial challenges, and will be posting all the links to them here! The links will include the original challenge post, as well as the results post. If you are unsure of whether or not I have any open challenges at the moment, come and revisit this publication (which will be pinned to my profile) to see all my challenges categorized under OPEN and CLOSED. Happy writing!

About the Challenges

I started these challenges in May 2024. I meant for them to be a monthly thing, but I got a little over eager to share more, and have been posting them twice a month instead! I will be posting a challenge on the 1st and 15th of every month (though sometimes I jump the gun a little)!

I am unfortunately unable to give tips as prizes at the moment, though I hope to be able to in the future! Right now, the prize for first place is that I will read, comment on, and like 5 of your works, as well as subscribe if I have not already. I hope that this will at least boost your page a little bit. If you have any other ideas about prizing, I am all ears!

I also do all the judging for these challenges. The challenge stays open for a month to accumulate entries, and then I take about a week to decide on the winner and release the results post.

This information (and more) can also be found in every challenge post.

Creator's Note

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the creators who have entered into my challenges, especially those that do so consistently. I appreciate the heck out of you guys. I did not expect to get a lot of entries the first time around, but my first challenge "Inside the Animal's Mind" (May 2024) got a decent amount of attention and really gave me something great to look forward to. I have loved reading all of your entries and I am really excited about this whole project. It wouldn't have been possible without you, so really guys, thank you.
