#NewWritingContest - From every day routine, an art

How would you explain the instructions to get out of bed every morning in an artistic and fun way? What words would you use? What resources would you add? Something so simple, but at the same time so complex. This is the moment when we want to exploit everyone's creativity. Therefore, we have opened the new contest of the month, which is called "From every day routine, an art". The mission is to write a short story - of 400 words maximum- with instructions on how to get out of bed each morning in a original way. The most creative and humorous text will be the winner.

This contest has been inspired by the famous writer Julio Cortázar who wrote: "Instructions on how to climb a staircase" in a very artistic way. If you need an example for your participation, you can read his work here.

Start date: March 15, 019

Fecha de cierre: April 10, 2019
