It’s time again for the Open Novella Contest, an event on Wattpad. The Open Novella Contest (or ONC) is like National Novel Writing Month; but instead of 50,000 words in one month, the ONC is 20,000 words in three months.
Participants choose a prompt provided by the ONC account and begin writing their story. The prompts are supposed to be the foundation of the story, but the contestants are free to alter them as they need to–the judges just need to somewhat recognize the original prompt.
The contest is divided into three milestones/goals: 2,000 words, 8,000 words, and finally 20,000. The contestants to make it to 2,000 will be judged and a list made of those who can continue to the next round. The process repeats for the second and third goals, at which time a grand champion will be picked.
If you want to know more, check out the ONC book.
Here are a couple contestant stories to get you started.
