The Hope Springs Eternal Contest is about finding the bright side. Everyone goes through challenges in life, it's how you deal and move forward that truly illuminates the character of the person.
So write us whatever you want, but please, don't make it a picture perfect characterization of life. The flaws, the heartache, the battle and triumphs are what we want to read about.
Select one of our many prompts to get your inspiration. Then go write us your best tale of hope. That in the end, things will get better.
I'm not saying you have to make your story a sickly sweet happily ever after, but we do want to see some promise of better things down the road.
It also doesn't need to be super angsty, just write us a tale of life's ups and downs.
This is a Twilight Contest. Check out our blog site for all the rules & other information.
