2021-Micro-02 - "Doors"

Our first Micro Fiction contest was a huge success!  We all discovered how amazing stories can be when they are limited to 100 words or less. Somehow the word limitation seemed to increase everyone’s creativity!
Our second Micro Fiction prompt is “Doors”.  The picture we’ve chosen to represent this prompt is most intriguing, with its dramatic colors and implied mystery.  Your story does not have to be about this particular door, but can be about any door, or even just the concept of door! 
When you consider your own imagined door, you might ask questions: What stories lie behind my door?  Where did it come from? Where does it lead?   Is it a way out, or a way in?  To the fertile writer’s mind, there are infinite possibilities on the other side of every door.
We invite you to enter a story with 100 words or less inspired by our “Doors” prompt. We look forward to all your exciting, unique ideas!
Good luck!

Double-check your story against the rules below, and make all corrections BEFORE you submit!  Multiple entries of the same story will be disqualified.

Ensure your submission follows these rules:
  • Correct length (100 words or less)
  • Correct spelling and grammar
  • Family-friendly content
Be sure to include some reference to Door or Doors

An intriguing photo prompt this time after a more general theme of Gold. How interesting to have different kinds of prompts for stories – Haikus, themes, flowers, photo scenarios!

Looking forward to reading the stories behind the Door. To find out from where the reddish light comes. Exciting!

“Doors” is a great idea. Doors can close as well as open. They can protect or shut out. They can be a way out or in. We all use doors mentally and physically. Thanks for the challenge.

If anyone else is having problem loading the PicResize.com website, this one seems to work okay too:

It is nice to hear and read what the Voice club is thinking. Even though you are faceless, we see you in the ethos of the Voice club. I hope you understand what I am trying to say. I also know that everyone who writes here understands the amazing quality of the team who works so hard to keep this site up and running. (I hope this doesn’t sound like an after dinner speech – ha, ha) Thank You All.

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
