Are you a word hoarder wanting to write with every fibre of your being, but lacking the necessary inspiration to get started and/or keep going??

Whether you are a brand new writer or a seasoned author ready for a new writing project, it can be incredibly difficult to find the inspiration you need, in order to commit to an endeavor.

StoryMirror in collaboration with HydRAW presents India's first Interactive Novel Writing Contest - A contest designed to provide an opportunity to the readers to decide what course of action the characters of the story take and there is no better way to motivate, reaffirm and refresh yourself than by participating in this contest.

Concept of  Interactive Novel Writing Contest

Traditional form of writing a novel is based on an author’s imagination and the plot and is based on how the author wants to take the reader through the journey. In this format, the reader has no option but to follow the author’s journey. Wouldn’t it be nice if the reader can decide what course of action the characters of the story take?

You will be given a short story as a prompt and you have to submit your story based on the given prompt. There will be a total of 10 prompts and the best stories will be culminated into an interactive novel. Each prompt will have multiple questions, each question suggesting a different direction the story can go into. You can pick up any question to write their story. Readers will be able to navigate through the best five submissions selected for each prompt in any combination thus traversing multiple variations of the same base story.
