    What drives you crazy?
    I will be judging this contest on one thing and one thing only: your ability to make your character go from seemingly normal, to criminally insane.
    I have a small list of things that can make a person go crazy, and what I want you to do is choose one of those things, and write a story with a few chapters (min. of 3) and use this thing to make your character go crazy.
    The first chapter, they're fine. Seemingly normal person who simply wanted to write in their journal, etc. Then, slowly, they get delusional, seeing things, hearing things, until the final straw breaks them. What happens is up to you.

    Choose from these:
    -the paranormal (ghosts, demons, etc)
    -the voices in your head
    -a "friend"
    -a mental disorder (schizophrenia, etc)
    -death of a loved one, or death in general

    Guidelines
    The only guidelines you must meet are:
    -Mibba's rules
    -Minimum of three (3) chapters
    -Must be in 1st person

    Prizes:
    -Recs on three stories/poems of your choice
    -Subscription to up to three of your stories
    -Descriptive/constructive comments on three of whatever you want
    -A one shot written by me for you about whatever you want
    -User reccomendation
    -Blog written for your entry/story of your choice

    First place choose 4
    Second place choose 3
    Third place choose 2
    Honorable mention choose 1
    ALL ENTRIES WILL RECEIVE A COMMENT.

    Everything else is up to you. Be creative! Be scary! Be... INSANE!

    No problem! I don't want anyone to have to drop out because of something that isn't a big deal anyways, so I don't mind at all! :)

    Hey, I'd love to enter this!! Would it be okay if I did 'a friend' and 'the voices' in one story?
