Cursed Love Contest

For those who are damned…

This contest is designed for writers and readers who enjoy a good old fashioned cursed love. A type of love, that no matter how hard the heroine or hero obsesses over their love it will not be returned and if it does? It comes back demented or cursed.

        I entered two stories by mistake. The one that I wanted to be entered is titled “Return”, not “Black Veil”. My sincerest apologies and I hope you had received my entry.

      • shondabrock says:

        Sorry for the delay. I remembered seeing your message but I couldn’t remembered where I saw the message. I read both and I had to immediately visited your site. I liked them both. I don’t have them in front of me now. I think one was shorter?
        But I was impressed. I love 💕 your backstory.

        Stay inspired,

  13. I want to enter this contest, but I’m confused about one thing. Can we just come up with an opening line, or does it have to be the first of a story, paragraph, etc.?

    Hi Shondra. The shorter one titled Return is the one I wanted to submit for the contest. Black Veil was completely accidental lol. My apologies I just wanted to know if that one got in.
