That time of year is getting extraordinarily close. My characters are forming inside my head, my outlines are being written, and my research is nearly complete! It's time for National Novel Writing Month!

If you don't know what this is, National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo, takes place during the month of November and the goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days.

I'm not going to lie. It is hard. So hard. Last year was my first year, and I couldn't complete it. I got to about 45,000 words.

If you want to find out more go here: nanowrimo.org/en/dashboard
If you already have an account, you can add me as a buddy. I'm WritingFromWithin.

Now to the contest!
I've decided that the theme for the contest is... drum roll, please?
Apocalypse!
So... you can pretty much interpret that however you would like. There are rules though!

:bulletred: It can be poetry or prose.
:bulletorange: Only one submission per person.
:bulletyellow: You have to be a member to participate. If you're not a member, feel free to join!
:bulletgreen: No fanfiction. Sorry!
:bulletblue: There is no minimum or maximum word count.
:bulletpurple: Mature content is alright if it is classified as such.
:bulletpink: In your description box, you MUST mention that it is for this contest.
:bulletwhite: Submissions are due by November 30th!

Now to the prizes because I know that's what you actually wanted to hear about :)
