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 with your full name, email address and written entry. Week two entries are due on Wednesday, February 1, 2012. To learn more visit or visit us on Facebook at
