#NewWritingContest - It's moment for some White Love

It's Christmas time. And Christmas is for snow, hot chocolate, lights, gifts, but also, for peace and love. Inspire yourself in it, and write a short story about romance -of maximum 600 words- that develops in this time of the year. Also, we want to make you go creative, so the story needs to have four main characters.

The most emotional and original short story will be the winner.And of course, spelling and grammar will be taken into account. Any error of these will subtract points.

So, are you ready for some #ChristmasTales?

Start date: December 1st, 2018

End date: December 31th, 2018

But what is the definition of Romance?

Among the various literature and cinema genres is romance, which refers to a romantic relationship, usually between two people. While it is impossible to frame certain stories in a single genre, those that turn the plot around the intimacy of two individuals who fall in love often receive the label of romantic, with all that this entails at the cultural level.
