2021-Gems-01 - "Colors"

Our end of the year custom is to celebrate our Patrons, by offering them a special writing opportunity and a chance to enhance their writing portfolios, through our “Gems” event.
For this year’s “Gems” writing event, we invite you to write a story inspired by the “Colors” prompt.  If there are any wonderful stories you’ve been longing to write, now’s your chance.  Just include at least one color in the story and you’re in!  This invitation is extended until December 31, 2021 noon.
Here are some stories that use colors very effectively, written by some of our Patrons:   
This writing invitation is for our Patrons, in gratitude for helping us keep this beautiful community alive and thriving.  This is not a contest.  Instead, we will publish any story that meets our family-friendly standards of high quality, beauty and inspiration! 

 

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

Ensure your submission follows these rules:
  • Correct length (350 words or less)
  • Correct spelling and grammar
  • Family-friendly content
Be sure to include a reference to a color!

In order to submit your Gem:

We invite you to become a Patron of Voice.club

Voice.club members work together as a community to help make all of our wishes come true.  As a patron, you not only help shape the look, feel and direction of the site, but you also help us provide a family-friendly haven for writers and readers, a place you can be proud to call “home”!

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.
