3 Word Challenges

  • Hey! Can I post a challenge? Or do I just have to wait?

  • i wanted to now do you have to subscribe to join the club? What do you have to write about? And what do you get if you write a short story? Oh if you do have to subscribe I might join. And what does subscribing do?

    WritingIsFun oh can you write about anything you want?

    WritingIsFun never mind, I figured the part were you write your storys, and what to right about, but if you subscribe do you earn points if you win a contest or something. that's all that I know so far.

  • 3 Word Challenges has been inactive due to many reasons, but we are back!
    Okay, it's been really rough lately, so I took a break from a lot of things on YWS, and Clubs was one of them. But as I become more active and accepting of everything, I have come back.

    Here are the results for the latest challenge:
    First Place - @haredrier
    I really liked the graphic picturing in your story, so well done!

    Second Place - @JuliasSneezer
    I really liked the detail and the overall topic of the story ^^

    Third Place - @GalacticPhantom24 and @herbgirl
    I was tied between your works, so I'll give it both third ^^

    I really liked all of your works, and I wish I could write more about each one, but I'm trying to get a lot done so well done to all of you! Shipping points over soon!

  • Any word on when the third challenge winners will be announced? It's the first one I participated in and I'm curious to see if I did well.

    Eternity Hey, mate. Yeah, sorry about the long wait. I've had so much going on. I'll have the winners up by wednesday this week. I apoplogize for my inconvience.

  • Challenge Two Results

    First Place: Herbgirl -- I absolutely loved your piece because I can relate to it the most. It's incredible how you thought of that! I loved ot so much.

    Second Place: Ellstar -- I really liked the twist here. Your writing has always intrigued me. I couldnt chose between you or Julias' but well done!

    Follow-Up Second Place: JuliasSneezer -- I really liked your story as well, and as I said, I could not chose between yours and Ellstar's.

    Congratulations everyone! Points and reviews will be rewarded soon.

    JuliasSneezer Thank you much! :D

    I'm honored.

  • Congratulations, everyone! I can't wait to read all these! :D

  • I am very pleased with all of the submissions. I've read through them all and I'll probably go read them all again, but I have chosen the placings.

    If I could, I'd give you all first placing. However, we have two first placing because I hate choosing so yeah.

    First Place: Ellstar - Cheap Cigarettes
    - This piece was incredibly intriguing to me. I was actually kind of startled by it at first and it turns out that I really like it. You didn't pour information out all at once. You spaced everything out. Well done.
    TheSilverfox - Have the Body of Evidence
    - Now this piece was also very intriguing to me as well because it reminded me of a lot of those mystery novels where it's all just---evil. I loved it though because the way you portrayed the entirety of the plot was amazing. So also, well done to you.

    Second Place: AnarchyWolf - Untitled
    - I absolutely loved this topic as well. It's one that I, personally, have dealt with. Bullying is a topic people tend to overwrite about, but I like how you portrayed this as well. ^^

    Third Place: NympheaLily - Untitled
    - This piece was also interesting to me. I liked the topic and all. I also liked
    the ending a lot because it also struck me. I do suggest you extend the story a little more but I liked this one.

    Special thanks to all the other people who entered.
    CupcakesForRealMen - I loved your piece. However, I did request that this entry wasn't fantasy, and you had a dragon within it. I loved the piece because of that reason but I was looking for a realistic type of view on this entry.

    JuliasSneezer Ah! Sorry, I probably missed that part. thank you very much anyhow, and congratulations to the winners!

    AnarchyWolf Congrats everyone! And thanks @Eternity - I didn't think I'd place :)

  • Ugggh, the air conditioner in my house died, it's getting very hot, a bunch of people are expected to show up today, and I highly doubt I can finish any entry of mine before noon. So I'm not sure I can enter a story in this challenge. *sighs* Sorry about that.

    TheSilverFox Okay, on second thought, I can actually do this. It will be a relatively short story (1,000-1,500 words), but, given how long mine typically are, maybe this will be a refreshing break. I think I can finish it in the next 15-30 minutes, hopefully, and submit it before the deadline. So yay, I actually accomplished something. At the last minute, but...still a victory. :P

    Eternity Yay! I'll check it out now! ^^

  • Can it also be poems?

    Eternity I was originally looking for short stories but I guess. I don't want everyone doing poetry though. But sure!

  • This sounds like a good thing. Imma subscribe.

  • Three Word Challenges!

    How it works: I give you three words, and you write a short story based on those three words. The set up of my challenges will look like this:

    Three Words:
