Studying the Senses - Contest Closed

Journal Entry: Mon May 12, 2014, 9:51 AM
Tumblr l Facebook l Twitter l DLR

Contest Closed

The senses contest is closed. This is going to be a busy weekend and if I see an entry trickle in latee it will be at my discretion as to whether or not to accept it.
As of this minute I will not be posting all of the entries recieved as a few of them did not follow the guidelines. I expect to have winners soon.


Deadline extended
The senses contest is closed. I am, however, going to extend the deadline until Thursday, June 12th. My 7th wedding anniversary (and Father's Day)is the 15th which is a Saturday and my little sister has a birthday on the 14th as well as my daughter's first dance recital. So I am please trying to get those last minute entries in


The Senses

Traditionally there are five senses: touch, taste, smell, sound, and sight. Some claim there is a "sixth sense". There is no definitive proof of the sixth sense, but I, personally, believe that it exists. Some claim it is an otherworldly sense where you are aware of the supernatural. Not vampires and werewolves, but energy around us existing to control the world around us. So, by this, there are six senses and all of us have our favorite sense; one we would lose our sexual organs to keep.


The Challenge

Immerse yourself in one sense and find its purpose, its true meaning. Any of the six senses can be assumed, but one sense must be singled out. It can be your favorite sense or a sense you find a kinship with or even a sense you would be okay with losing. Just take on one of the six and write. Write from the sense's point of view or your point of view or the point of view of a third party. It makes no difference

I hope your going to post ALL the entries in a journal so that we can all read what everyone came up with, I think I may be more escited about reading what others wrote than actually trying to win the contest. :heart:

I will debate on doing such, however I did not plan to do so.
