A Story - Diary Format

Anne Frank's world famous diary charts two years of her life from 1942 to 1944. The story told is well know. The writing style is unique in that it is told exclusively from diary entries.

For this contest you are to write a fictional story using the dairy format.

Write a format using the format shown below. The examples below use excerpts from her diary.

    February 3, 1944

    "I've reached the point where I hardly care whether I live or die. The world will keep on turning without me, and I can't do anything to change events anyway. I'll just let matters take their course and concentrate on studying and hope that everything will be all right in the end."

    July 5, 1944

    "It's a wonder I haven't abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart. It's utterly impossible for me to build my life on a foundation of chaos, suffering and death. I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness, I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too, I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better, that this cruelty too shall end, that peace and tranquility will return once more."

This does not have to be this form of writing. Your writing can be humorous, serious, outlandish or serious. That's up to you. The format for this contest though should be a diary format which offers a unique challenge.

The contest winner will win half of the prize pool of 90.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 2 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest Is Closed.
