VOAT - The Sea, The Sea!

Citizen trout, is chomping at the bit for a VOAT, so I said I'd join him.

The topic is, as stated above, The Sea.

Entries in whatever genre you want & whatever creative form
  • Poems
  • Flash fiction
  • Short Stories
  • Essay
  • Scripts

Or whatever the creative writing term for mixed-media is

RULES

1. You have until the end of November to send me your piece via DM
2. As short as you like but try to keep it under 2000 words for prose. Probably best not to have an epic poem.

Who's in?

It's a mini writing competition, just for fun and to give people* who need a deadline to write to an arbitrary one.

Ah, thanks. Yeah sounds like fun and as luck would have it have been mulling over a small, throwaway scene set at the beach. Only sticking point is I have a 4-week old newborn currently dominating attention, so my ability to contribute might be non-existent. I'd like to say "yeah!" with the caveat that all things being equal, I won't submit aything

Thanks! Spare time and hobbies have evaporated for the time being; plus even if I find time to scribble my idea, the sleep deprivation might make the end result ... interesting

Count me in. I haven’t written much this year and with the sea is outside my 5k zone I will have to rely on memory to come up with something!

I've got one. But it's horror – its not going to lift your spirits in anyway, I don't think. Tell you what I will message it on but don't paste it up if you think it's a bit too rough
