Hello and welcome to Love-Literature. We are a group dedicated to helping writers everywhere, sometimes that means we need to provide a little encouragement and inspiration through the use of contests and prompts (found in the "Weekly/Monthly Prompts" blogs). Here you can find all the information on the latest contests (including some sweet prizes.)

Contests:

"The Naked Truth" contest has been judged! Here are the results:

FIRST PLACE
(Literally Naked) Truth."Mayor Johnson, is there any rational explanation as to why you're naked?"
He gave me a look as if he were suggesting I was the middle aged man without clothes in the room.
"Sir, I received a call not more than an hour ago from your secretary. She was rather distressed"
"Oh! Elizabeth? What ever for, chief inspector?"
Then came the silence, and it smiled at me incredulously, daring me to test a sound from my throat. My mouth jumped hurdles of air; I must have been standing there for a minute with my jaw swinging and words dying, the corpses sliding off my lips. I probably looked like an aroused goldfish.
"Mr..." I was trying very hard to forget he was a 'mr' at this moment.
"...Boris, your receptionist was rather concerned when she came into your office to see you, and saw a lot more of you than she was hoping to..."
It was a newly modernised office besides the wall-long colonial era bookshelves; furniture that challenges the definition of 'chair' and 'desk', some confusing artworks hu
by Demosthenes-H

SECOND PLACE
The naked truth contest entryWhy do you call people gay?
Do you know what it means?
Homosexuality is not a disease.
You use all these words,
And derogatory names,
Without knowing that we are all just the same.
You tease them, bully them,
Hurting them deep down inside,
Without knowing that’s why,
They commit suicide.
You call them retarded,
Idiot, sped,
You tell them that they are
Screwed up in the head
Now let me tell you,
You have no idea.
They spend their life hiding,
And living in fear.
You keep pushing them,
Making them feel like crap.
Then you get angry,
When they finally snap.
Fat…
Ugly
Stupid…
Nerd…
All of these names,
all of these nasty words,
Aren't used by animals,
Apes, fish or birds.
We're a civilized species,
we know right from wrong,
so how has this managed
to go on for so long.
So once and for all,
For the love of god,
Please…
Stop.
by LachlanWeber

THIRD PLACE
Naked RealityWe are all naked,
We just wear cloths to cover the truth,
But...
They see right through the thin fabric,
That holds what we have hidden,
Despite what's in our hearts,
They only see what's on the outside,
But who is around to leave it alone?
No one.
Not one can really tell you your flaws,
Only you can,
But your inner critic just breaks you down,
This is the naked truth,
And no,
Truth does not wear cloth,
For truth is what's real,
We are not.

No deadlines :) The weekly prompt will be up in the journal for 1 week, the monthly prompt for 1 month but if you submit something for the weekly prompt after the week is up it's still fine. If that makes sense?

I would like to know who won the contest for the New Year script...
The one where you were supposed to write a non-fictional or fictional piece about New Year resolutions, no less than 200 words and no more than 800? You have never stated who won that contest, or if you have, I can't find any journals about it....

No rewards, they are just there to help people who want to write but can't think of something to write about perhaps. No rules, just write about the prompt and, if you like, submit the piece to the Contests and Prompts folders!

Must the fictional resolutions specifically be NY related? Or may they be about any sort of vow?

Thanks.

To clarify further, would it have to be what we humans see as the traditional New Year, so the passing of the 31st of December to the 1st of January (for most people)? Or could it be any festival or occurrence celebrating the passage from one year into the next, even made up ones?

Also, assuming it has to be a traditional human New Year, does it necessarily have to be set on modern day Earth, or even Earth at all?

Sorry about all the questions, I just like seeing how much I can get away with. :P Other people might find it handy to know, too.

:iconaimeeraindrop:
AimeeRaindrop Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Professional Writer
Hmm. You've made me think now! Haha. I think I would like it to be either the traditional new year OR another celebration celebrating the passage from one year into the next as long as it is a real celebration not made up.

It has to be set on earth but not necessarily modern day, future or past is fine!

One more thing! (Sorry again. >.<)

Does the setting have to be historically accurate? If you set it in the past does everyone have to go around saying "verily" all the time? And is a magic or are mythical creatures completely out of the question? If it needs to be accurate, then how much leeway would the future be given, considering that 'the future' could encompass anything from hover cars to cold fusion to terraforming to mass fabrication?

AimeeRaindrop Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013  Professional Writer
You're testing me now, aren't you :p Making me think XD

Um, I won't mind if the setting is not historically accurate. It's up to the writer. So no, everyone does not have to go around saying "verily" all the time if it is set in the past. And if you're writing a fictional piece about new years resolutions then you can use magic or mythical creatures in the story (I'm actually quite intrigued to see how this would fit with the new years resolutions theme!) Future wise, anything goes really 'cos who knows what the future holds for us!
