3) I write fantasy with some futuristic.
4) I like to hang out with my friends and cousins in my free time.
5) ...Um, I listen to a lot of different kinds of music....not just one
6) I am Team Cap for the Captain America Civil War.



SMB 


1) I’m SMB
2) I loved to read Biblical and historical fiction, as well as fantasy
3) Everything! I have a ton of different stuff I am working on right now, or have plans for: fantasy, futuristic, historical fiction, and a few other things as well. :)
4) When I’m not reading and writing I’m usually either dreaming up stories, traveling and doing outdoor adventures, or on Pinterest. :)
5) I like to listen to a lot of different music. I have a playlist for when I’m writing, but for everyday life I like to listen to stuff like Jamie Grace, Moriah Peters, For King and Country, and similar artists/songs.
6) Up to this point I’ve been team Captain America for the Civil War.





1) Raechel
2) Oh that's a tough one...I love many genres, but two of my top favourites are Christian fantasy and Biblical fiction.
3) Christian fantasy with no magic, and a sort of 'medieval' ish feel to it.
4) Well...I'm almost always reading or writing, but I also love throwing my tomahawk/knives at my log target, and just being with my family.
5)I don't have a specific favorite kind of music really...is TobyMac a genre? XD I like upbeat, exciting Christian music.
6) None? I'm not into Marvel stuff.



1) My name is Sierra, though I also go by Sparrow a lot online
2) It depends on my mood, I read a lot of different genres. If I had to pick one, I'd probably say fantasy.
3) Again, I write all different genres. Probably fantasy is my "favorite". :)
4) I like drawing and... uh... wow I sound like a boring person. I don't do all that much besides read and write and draw. I love photography though.
5) Also depends on my mood... *hides* I'm not a consistent person. I just have a bunch of spotify playlists with groups of artists and bands together. Right now I'm listening to the TobyMac and Capital Kings one, but last week it was BarlowGirl, ZOEgirl, Addison Road, and Superchic(K)
6) Team Cap!





1) Hey, I'm Faith P.!
2) My favorite genre of books to read is historical fiction. :)

Jesseca


1. Hi, my name is Jesseca Dawn. :)
2. My favorite genre to read would have to be historical fiction. It's awesome. ;)
3. And, my favorite genre to write would be historical fiction as well! I love all the research that goes into it.
4. Baking, cooking, reading, sewing. Or just spending time outside. ;) 
5. My favorite kind of music is movie soundtracks! They're the best! ;) Hymns tie with the soundtracks for a favorite, and contemporary is a close second.


 Are you excited? I am! And finally, last but not least, here is your writing prompt! The theme for this contest (and ultimately your story) is; Sacrifice.



In case the picture isn't clear for some reason, this is what it says.

Rules of War.
Rule #1: Good men will die.
Rule #2: Not even "Doc" can change Rule #1.
Rule #3: For his brothers, "Doc" will die trying to change both Rule 1 &2. 

You can use my prompt, any of the prompts that the other Judges have given, or you can combine them! It's completely up to you! However, please be sure you do include one of the prompts in your story. ;)
Have fun writing and I'm looking forward to seeing all your entries. :) \

*All representation pics and the writing prompt came from pinterest.
