Something I Resisted Doing

Poetry Contest
Winless For 30 Days
Did you do something recently that you've been resisting accomplishing? Are you breaking your record for procrastination? Tell us all about it! In a poem!

There is no requirement for meter or rhyme. The poem can be any structure you like, as long as it is about an action you took that you had resisted for a while. It should be something that you accomplished recently -- preferably within the last three months.

It costs only $3 member dollars to enter the contest. The prize pool is the accumulation of the entry fees. First place winner will receive 50% of the prize pool. The second and third place winners split the remaining 50% between them.

To encourage newer FanStory members to engage, this contest is limited to members who haven't placed in a contest within the last thirty days.
