Dpoll 29: Do you join writing (story, tale, poetry) contests?


Dpoll 29: Do you join writing (story, tale, poetry) contests?


As I joined Steem I thought this platform was about writing.

You might find me naive I'm telling you this but that is why I joined.
The reality is you hardly find writers and readers here and the contests hosted are not doing well. Many writers left after the latest HFs and a part no longer writes on this platform.

There might be only a few writers (authors) left but.... here everyone can be a freewriter.
@mariannewest provides in a daily prompt and you only need to write about if for 5 minutes. You can write in English, German or Spanish.
You can write stories or poems as a freewriter or join some contest.

If you have a look at @freewritehouse you can recommend a freewrite but join WE-write or the beta readers group too.
@bananafish hosts Haiku contests in English and Spanish and there was more.
@felixgarciap hosts a "Lyric and Poetry" contest and
@tristancarax the "31 sentence" contest.

I agree most contests are not easy to join especially if you are a nonnative speaker or the rules (Haiku for example) differ from yours. Still, it is fun to join once in a while no matter if you ever win since this is a way to improve your writing skills and engage.

Do you join writing (story, finish the story, poetry) contests?

Thank you for voting. Is there a reason why no poetry? Too boring, old fashioned or?

@grider123 A poem does not need tobrhyme, a rhyme does, a lyric (songtext) can. ❤️Posted with ![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbroYujK9LNd2s8zDKPUCADmseyJDuNbhwBPrrF7xM8FL/logo-comment.png)

Yes, I’ve joined several kinds, including puns (Monday Punday), but I have to be in the write frame of mind ;)

Thank you. I understand that. A certain mood and time is needed for sure. Monday Punday I find too hard for me. Happy day. 💕

You can write in your language and add a translation or join the CCC contests. You are allowed to write in your own language. See @team-ccc and steemit.com/@hive-166850.

Which language you like to write in?
You can start a contest yourself too. 💕

Ik verwarde met CreativeCoin (CCC), die me voortdurend "downvotes" omdat hun commissarissen niet begrepen wat er was geschreven:)

@ili0braz That is a bad reason for giving downvotes. Writing is being creative and you cannot downvote because you cannot understand it..They did not ask you?Posted with ![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbroYujK9LNd2s8zDKPUCADmseyJDuNbhwBPrrF7xM8FL/logo-comment.png)

ze schreven in koor dat dit niet creatief is (hoewel contest KVN's meestal volgens mijn scenario's wonnen), maar geen van hen toonde hun begrip van het Cyrillische:)

@ili0braz I understand. You wrote in Bulgarian or Russian?❤️

Always give a translation in English... they rule here and are the ones too lazy to translate. ❤️Posted with ![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbroYujK9LNd2s8zDKPUCADmseyJDuNbhwBPrrF7xM8FL/logo-comment.png)

Engels is voor mij het meest administratief. En nog belangrijker - sinds mijn jeugd speel ik oorlogsspellen met censuur)

"войнушки" - kinderspelletjes in militaristische staten (ik ben opgegroeid in een land bezet door communistisch Rusland). Alle beheerders voor mij zijn - rode commissarissen:)

@ili0braz We played "conquer". We had pocket knives draw land in the sand and throw in turn our knife next drawing a line.... Who had the most won. These days it's forbidden like most games, playing Indian cowboy, you aren't even allowed to have a knife or screwdriver in your car/with you if you visit certain cities...but you are allowed to let yourself beaten up, molested or gang raped. The police/government doesn't care about that. Enjoy your freedom and day ❤️Posted with ![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbroYujK9LNd2s8zDKPUCADmseyJDuNbhwBPrrF7xM8FL/logo-comment.png)

@ili0braz Thst shouldn't be such a problem. It's laziness that doesn't make people translate. It's easier to downvote I guess. ❤️Posted with ![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbroYujK9LNd2s8zDKPUCADmseyJDuNbhwBPrrF7xM8FL/logo-comment.png)

I do joined at least one story writing contest many months ago, but I do not even remember now what kind of story it was. I mostly like reading stories. Especially in books.
