Words: Write Tribe Contest 1



I did promise you a contest soon. So here it is:

1. Write a piece/a story/ a poem incorporating the following  7 words in random order :

  •   postcard
  •   coin
  •   tidy
  •  wild
  •  help
  •  calendar
  •  responsibility

2. Publish your post on your blog and make sure you link it to this post. Please try to keep your post to below 700 words.

3.  Make sure the 7 words are underlined or in italics – so I can find them easily. 🙂

4. Add your link to the linky below. The linky will be open for the next 10 days. i.e. until 12 July 2013.

The prize?  A Flipkart Voucher for Rs.600/- for participants from India  or an Amazon Voucher for USD 10/- for overseas participants.  The winner will be declared on 15 July 2013.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment here and I’ll respond  immediately.

Good luck and get creative!

  1. Wow! What an interesting contest. I look forward to participating. 😀

    Yes, we know my eyes are bigger than my tummy. But this one I won’t miss, just for the fun of writing it!


  2. Looking forward to your participating, Vidya. You can always contact the Bengal Bengali for inspiration! 😉


      1. Talking about being blank in the head, I actually meant Baba Bengali – that ad you put up on FB, Vidya. 🙂


  3. New kind of contest. Loved the idea of giving random words to build a post around. Will definitely give it a try (i.e. saving it in my blogger drafts)… even if I don’t remember to do that before the contest deadline! 😛


    1. Glad you liked it, Chicky. I do hope you enter your post for the contest. We’ll set up a reminder service for you! 🙂


  4. That is very challenging, Corrine and definitely promises to be fun. Even if I can’t come up with inspiration, I will be so much fun reading all the entries!


  5. C, I am going to be thrown out of office..if you add on one more competition..which I cant resist and will participate in, anyway… phew..If I was good enough…I wouldve been blogger by profession and lived happily ever after.. Cheers to you and your competitions… Keep Writing..I want to read your blogs 😀


    1. Oh, and here I thought I was on your side, Dee. Don’t worry you won’t be thrown out – I’ll have a word with the management! 😉


    1. Thanks, Sreedev. I mailed you last night about underlining the words – I know you’ve highlighted them, but it’s kind of difficult to read on a dark background.


  6. Hmmm…..earlier it was 7 lines…now 7 words in a 700 words post 🙂 Are you in love with number 7 🙂
    Off late, I am loveing these challenges and prompts, will try to take up this one also 🙂


    1. Perhaps, I am. I’m born on the 7th the month – not this one though! 🙂 I’m glad you’re enjoying the challenges – good luck with the contest.


  7. I’m so looking forward to cracking my brain on this one! This is a real challenge for someone like me, and I hope I do justice to it. Thanks for this Corinne…I’m really stretching my imagination here. 🙂


      1. Sreedevi, I commented on your post, some two or three times, but it just keeps vanishing in that Google+ comments box. Can you please shift back to normal blogspot comments please?


      2. Hi Corrine

        I have switched back to default comment option of the blogger. Had to take off google+ comment box because of some issues. I guess because of it have lost so many comments 😦

    1. So sorry I didn’t respond immediately, Vaisakh. 700 words is only a guideline. Glad you liked the challenge. Your post for the Umwelt prompt was fantastic. Looking forward to reading this too. I’m not reading any until the last date is over. 🙂


  10. Corinne I have time! I cannot believe it I actually convinced myself I will be left teary eyed and the flipkart voucher wil go red ribboned to someone else. Yayaya! I am going to now put my mind to it straight away!
