    Sounds great! I'm more of a poetry person but I'll consider it.

    I've written a story in 100 words. I don't think it was a proper story but that might be my perfectionist self talking. It was hard to put together but I guess it was good enough for it to be selected.

    I wish everyone all the best!

    Really, really excited for this now. Can't wait.

    Quick question(s), though

    Is it okay to include homosexuality & a little violence(a very, very small amount) into my story?

    Thanks. c:

    Homosexuality is not inherently explicit compared to any other sexuality, the same rules apply to all
    I'd say the amount of violence you're describing is ok - if you'd find it in a 12A film then it's fine, if it would be a 15 then it's not

    Can it be a prose piece rather a short story?
    As long as it's under 500 words it can be whatever branch of fiction writing you want (as long as it isn't poetry or a script)
