Hello Everyone,

Cinnamon Cup Coffee is delighted to announce that our creative writing contest #SPILLTHEBEANS has been re-vamped.

Not written in stone, but starting today, a topic will be presented every Monday for you to write on. There will be a countdown timer that needs to be observed for the deadline of entries. The entry deadline for posts will end on Wednesdays, with the countdown timer at the top and the bottom of this post, guiding you to the cut-off time.

This is a creative writing exercise, therefore you can weave your story however you like, but it MUST revolve around the topic presented.

Have fun peeps!



Frequently asked questions (FAQ) about #spillthebeans


1. Can I Enter?

Answer:

Yes, you can! One entry per person.

Everyone is free to post regular coffee posts in the community at any time. However, if there's a post using the #spillthebeans tag, that is NOT a response to the question, the post will be muted without notice.

N.B. #Spillthebeans entries will not be included in the selection of weekly curated content for #THEGRIND


2. Why should I participate and what will I gain?

Answer:
  • Improve your writing skills
  • Be an active community member
  • Engage with community members and other authors across Hive.
  • A chance to be creative
  • A chance that your post might be curated for upvotes
  • Best post entry would receive beneficiary rewards from the following week's contest announcement post rewards.

3. How do I win or what criteria are you looking for?

Answer:
  • Clarity and readability
  • Creativity of the story
  • Originality and personality in the story
  • Quality of photos
  • Presentation of your post
  • Engagement on your post and other authors' posts within the community

4. How do I know if I am a winner?

Answer:
  • There will only be ONE WINNER
  • At the end of the countdown, if you are that lucky person, you will receive a banner on your post entry, notifying you that you won the contest.
  • Your post will be highlighted in the topic announcement post, the following week.
  • You will receive a 20% beneficiary reward from the new post topic announcement post the following week.

  • No less than 250 English Words ONLY
  • Post within the Countdown Timer. (No late entries)

(Plain text)

POST TOPIC: My Coffee Choice

There are three new coffee brands for sale at your local supermarket. Coffee A, B, & C. Each package grants you one wish upon drinking. The choices are: 1. (Coffee A): You could re-live any memory for two days only. 2. (Coffee B): You could erase any memory forever. 3. (Coffee C): You could make any wish come true, for just one day only. Which coffee would you choose? And why?


C'mon, it doesn't matter if the story is true, fiction, fraction, happy, sad, good, or evil...

Just ...

We appreciate you inviting others to participate, but we beg of you to inform them that there's a specific topic with guidelines to follow to avoid their posts being muted too.
Should you decide to enter another week, it would be a great idea compulsory for you to read and follow the guidelines, and write about the topic presented.
See you around!

⚠️

URGENT NOTICE ALL

Edit: @jygy89

Please see the guidelines.
For this creative writing Contest, ONLY ENGLISH MUST be presented. You can use your translator, but it should not be included in your post.
Please read the guidelines carefully.

screenshot guidelines.jpg

Please see messages from the Judges, in this post, advising that both only read and speak English.

This language rule is specifically for all contest entries.

Any post that has dual language will be muted without notification, simply because the contest is time-sensitive, and judges will not be able to notify each participant to edit a post, as following the guidelines is a pre-requisite for a valid entry.

Dual language posts prompt other authors to comment on your post in their native language.
Please note that engagement on your post counts, but ONLY if judges (community team) are able to comprehend what is written.

Thank you for your understanding.

I'm sorry, when I read the rules I didn't understand it that way, I just thought it referred to 250 in English, but it was understood that in Spanish too because it's my language, but I fixed it, in case you still have the chance, thanks for taking the time to tell me.

Hola @fabian98 el concurso trata de tres opciones de café (A,B,C), cada uno te brinda una oportunidad distinta, como revivir un recuerdo, borrar un recuerdo o hacer un sueño realidad. Puedes utilizar tu imaginación o tomar un hecho real. Tienes hasta mañana miércoles para participar, lee bien las reglas. Cualquier otra duda estoy a la orden.
Suerte 😊

Hi @fabian98 the contest is about three coffee options (A,B,C), each one gives you a different opportunity, like reliving a memory, erasing a memory or making a dream come true. You can use your imagination or take a real event. You have until tomorrow Wednesday to participate, read the rules carefully. Any other questions I am at your service.
Good luck 😊

I came across this lovely coffee community a while ago and I so much love the idea and what I have read so far. Here is my first coffee story.

https://peakd.com/hive-152524/@funshee/my-coffee-choice

I hope I met all the requirements, and I figure was very close to this prompt deadline, I couldn't invite my friends to join as they won't be able to meet up. I will make sure to invite them next time.
