Object Inspiration (Round 1)

Sometimes, a source of inspiration for that next big story could come from the most ordinary everyday things! 'Object Inspiration' writing competitions are all about taking a small object, item or photo and writing a story about it.

For this month's writing comp, we're in the world of Obernewtyn: pick an object in your room. The teknoguilders have just uncovered it during one of their excavations.

Submission Suggestions
Some questions to think about:
- What could the Teknoguilders be thinking of the object?
- What characters could be in the scene?
- What time is it?
- What is happening?
- What is the mood of the story?

Entries open from now until [strike]31st July[/strike] 14th August.

Your entry should be no longer than 1000 words. You can only enter once, so make sure you're happy with the entry before you submit it!

1st: 40

Judging Coordinator: Amashelle
