Find Your Story Within Contest – Week 3

January 27, 2012

We love quintessential elements because we are fascinated by extremes.

Week 3 of our writing contest will be about quintessential elements. Quintessence refers to the purest possible embodiment of a characteristic or a trait. Rapunzel had the longest hair, Titanic was the biggest ship, Marley was the worst dog ever, Don Quixote was the greatest optimist.

In no more than 250 words, write a description of a quintessential character— or identify a quintessential trait in yourself. In order to avoid making you or your character appear too one dimensional give him or her a vulnerability. (Superman’s was kryptonite). Yours might be an inability to say no.

To enter, send an email to thestorywithinbook@gmail.com with your full name, email address and written entry. Week two entries are due on Wednesday, February 1, 2012. To learn more visit http://thestorywithin.net/writing_contest or visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/thestorywithin.
