Sometimes there is an urge to let out every feeling which resides inside your tender soul but we seldom get a chance to express it. Some simply taint a paper with ink. On a small diary, maybe in the form of short poems, few hang it up on their social media walls; Surely, we do talk in words.
To craft expressions through words is an art; The art of curation. An assembly line of thoughts which flow in a synchronized symphony that they’ll please all ears and thump all hearts. A little pretentious, a little fictitious, but in all a dramatic stage play of characters. An ensemble of feelings radiating through the characters, no less as if the author is the protagonist leading towards an epic climax.
We bring you this competition-The 100 Hours Plot where you write a story; You play your own protagonist in everyday life. Cheering, struggling, crying, embracing, drooling, realizing; one in all and all in one. This competition aims to bring forward the storyteller inside you.
