**UPDATE** Hey guys! Sorry for not being clear. For the challenge to use the letter X 3 times in a sentence, the X must be the starting letter of the words. Just to be clear! 🙂 **UPDATE**
*announcer voice* Welcome, ladies and gentlemen to the Ardent Author’s Writing Challenge Finale! Yes, it’s the last challenge; the challenge that decides who will win. Let’s see the contestants, shall we?
In one corner; we have… the towering, majestic, woody… Team Forest! In another corner, the fury, the heat, it’s Team Summer! And one more, folks. The grass, the hills, the dandelions, give it up for Team Meadows!
*gives up announcer voice* AHEM. Sorry about that.
If your name is bold, that means I got an entry from you. If you submitted photography or artwork, you’ll have an * next to your name. If you received bonus points for your team for whatever reason, your name will be in italics.
Awesome work guys!! Thank you to the three of you who submitted!
You used to have (#) points: 152 (I’m adding this one because I get confused easily 😛 Bear with me)
Points earned from last round: 37
Total points: 219
*UPDATED* Team Forest didn’t actually lose a member, so they won’t be getting 5 extra points anymore. I’m so sorry!
C’mon guys, you can do this!! You’re doing an amazing job, Enni, will all the bonus things! Thank you so much!

Wow guys! Huge comeback here; great job to all of you!
I’m giving Team Meadows extra points because one of their members dropped out a while ago but I forgot to give them points to replace her!
You used to have (#) points: 150

Team Summer is currently in last place, Team Forest in second, and Team Meadows is in first! :O C’mon guys! You can do it!
Since this is the last challenge, I’m going to give you guys more chance to earn more points for your team. There will be more prompts, and then at the end there will be a short list of challenges you can do to earn lots of points for your team.
Prompts for Challenge 6
Writing and dialogue prompts:
“I don’t want you to find me yet.”
“It’s your choice,” she shrugged.
“You can continue on with your miserable life, or you can become someone who can make a difference.”
The city kids had hair every shade of the rainbow.
In the garden grew the most beautiful flowers; and they were all poisonous.
The window stood open and all I had to do was jump.
I don’t know why I fell in love with her. All I know is that I never should have let her go.
I heard a scream. Then another. It seemed as if they were getting closer.
“Do you know what you’re doing?”
“I don’t know. I’ve never kidnapped someone under water before.”
“Are you going to kill me?”
“If you reach for that, definitely. If you stay still like a good boy, I might.”
“Please don’t leave me.”
“Come with me!”
And here are various challenges you can do:
Take a picture with a bird in it. (5 points, up to 15 points)
Draw a picture that illustrates one word in your story starting with a Z. (5 points, up to 15 points)
Write a 15 word sentence including 4 verbs, 2 nouns and 2 adjectives. It has to fit into your story. (7 points, up to 14 points)
Write a sentence in your story using 3 words starting with ‘x’. (5 points, up to 15 points)
- Write your story based of these prompts. You can use one or two, all of them, but you must use at least one.
- You can take photos or draw pictures to illustrate your story. You will get 2 points per photo and illustration.
- Creativity. This is how creatively you use the prompts.
- If you use the name of your team in your story, you can earn 1 point for your team. (e.g forest; the forest was dark and gloomy)
- You’ll get 1 point for each prompt you use, and 1 point for submitting your story/poem.
Example: Submitting a story and using all three prompts is 4 points, taking/drawing 3 photos and using your team name in your story is 7, so 4+ 7 = 11 points altogether.
Deadline: midnight, 26th of February 2018 (Central Time/CT)
