This week let's hop into a sport that has been bugging me for some time now, Cricket! I have no idea what the people in this photo are up to but the one fellow looks to be hopping and skipping about like the crickets in my back yard that I'm trying to catch and take fishing with me. You might say that I'm the ultimate Dibbly dobbly of the game, I feel like I've been fritzed by a thousand golden ducks, or in other words, I'm lost, hoodooed, a lolly headed mullygrubber with no clue. So write me a story and spell it out for an old man, what in the nurdle Projapoties is going on here!
The object of this game is to look at the photo above from a freaky sporting event and then tell a story about the event in your own words as if you were at the scene when it happened.
You can become an observer
You can become one of the participants in the event
You can be a coach
You can be a referee
You can be a newscaster
You can even imagine or dream that you are there
Just tell what happened from your vantage point as if you were right there watching when it happened, or from the viewpoint of it happening to you. Make it weird, make it funny, or make it dramatic. In fact, just have fun and tell the story from what you were thinking when you saw the photo, don't worry about the facts, just make it up as you go.
- Title your blog "On Freaky Friday I _____________" fill in the blank with something to make your story unique. Post the video or photo from this contest along with a link back to this blog and a short explanation so that the readers will know what you are writing about.
- The story must be 400 words long or longer about the events and scenes in the video or photo above.
- The story must be your own work, quotes may be used with credits given but the words in a quote do not count toward the word total. Make sure that you also give credits for any photos used in your story.
- Write your story in your own blog and post a link below.
- The contest is open to anyone, but due to bad actors and scammers on Scorum, I reserve the right to disqualify or ignore any entry from someone known to be a deceiver or who is even suspected of not being genuine. Don't worry, if you have written good blogs free from plagiarism and have not tried to scam anyone then you should have nothing to be concerned about.
- The prize payout will be 50% of the total payout from the previous contest blog plus any donations. Second place will receive 10% of the payout total and the contest winner will receive the remaining funds. If we receive extra donations then unless otherwise specified by the donor those funds will be split evenly between the contest winner and the runner up.
- As part of the reward for entering the contest, I will give a 50% upvote to any qualifying entry plus other upvotes whenever possible
- This contest runs from Friday to Friday so all entries must be submitted by midnight Thursday for whatever time zone that you live in.
- You may enter this contest using any language, just post your blog in the native domain and provide links as stated above. Just know that I will be using a translator in order to read and judge your entry which may affect my ability to properly and fairly do so depending on the accuracy of the translator that I use.
This is a weekly contest and my goal is to help as many members as possible to receive an established following on Scorum and to build up their accounts so that they can earn a steady income for themselves and at the same time begin to help others with their ability curate blogs and give significant upvotes for good work.
Do you need a helping hand to get started on Scorum, or maybe a little help building up that dream account that might be your golden ticket to help support you in the years ahead? Then Freaky Friday was designed just for you! This contest will help showcase your writing skills to the Scorum community, and if those skills need a little work then writing a Freaky Friday blog following the rules above will help you improve and gain confidence that you have what it takes to become a successful sports writer.
