Hope Springs Eternal O/S Contest

Have you ever had the feeling like life was just piling one thing after another on you?
That all the bad luck in the world was directed at you?

But then, after a while, life eventually turned around.

Was it perfect? No.

But did you find the light at the end of the tunnel or a way to cope, maybe even met a new friend in the process?

The Hope Springs Eternal Contest is about finding the bright side.
Everyone goes through challenges in life, it's how you deal and move forward that truly illuminates the character of the person.

So write us whatever you want, but please, don't make it a picture perfect characterization of life.
The flaws, the heartache, the battle and triumphs are what we want to read about.

Select one of our many prompts to get your inspiration. 
Then go write us your best tale of hope. 
That in the end, things will get better.

I'm not saying you have to make your story a sickly sweet happily ever after, 
but we do want to see some promise of better things down the road.
It also doesn't need to be super angsty, just write us a tale of life's ups and downs.

Up for the challenge?  

Be sure to read all the rules on the tab above and to have your entry beta'd prior to submitting it. We will not be accepting any entries that do not meet the minimum standards for grammar and punctuation.

This contest is anonymous, so please don't tease or tell people which story is yours.  
It will be disqualified, and we don't want that.
