Member-Sponsored Explain Yourself Contest
|Deadline:||Dec 17, 2014|
Readers spend a lot of time dissecting fiction, looking for meaning, trying to understand what the author was trying to say. We want you, the author, to "Explain Yourself". Write us a story or poem, and inline [in editing brackets], please explain why you have made the choices you have. The explanation could revolve around word choices, character development, overall theme, etc. Show us your thought process. If there's anything you don't want readers speculating on, this is your chance to clear that up!
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
