Competition Page Update!

vor 3 Stunden

There have been many, many competitions on Movellas, many more winners still, and a whole lot of activity surrounding these kinds of events within our writing community.

Some of you may have noticed that the competitions page (movellas.com/competition/writing-contest.. shows competitions that are currently running and then one the second page it goes to much older competitions...

As CM, I've been trying to organize things so that all of our past winners can see who won which competition, when the competitions ended, and where the respective winners blogs and entries can be found.

After some tinkering, lots of clicking, and a massive amount of updating I wanted to let you all know that contest page has been updated for good! On page 1 are all of our most recent competitions and from there (on page 2) you'll find it organized by date, with the last competition, complete with winners and link to the winners announcement on the blog.

As this is how competitions should work, we hope that these updates make navigating our past & present the writing competitions easier and more fun. For those of you wondering about specific competitions, you can always search blogs & competitions now using the search bar above, the results can be filtered to just show competitions too :)

We hope you all keep entering the competitions on Movellas and join in on one or more of this year's exciting lineup of writing competitions to come. After all, what quicker way to improve your writing skills AND win prizes at the same time?

The Shelter

Lionfang Redhorn
vor 4 Stunden

I stand silently beneath the pale sky
Overlooking the widening valley before me.
A footpath anchored in the roots of trees
Leads downward along the gray sandstone hillside.
The path follows the wall a short distance,
Winding gently past tall old trees.
In the rock ahead is a tall vaulted opening
Falling gently away to the back and sides.
Spirits of ages past call to me.
The bluff shelter stands at the head of the valley,
A natural cathedral echoing the sounds of the forest.
I enter in awe,
Wander quietly across the shadowed soil,
Exploring places where my ancestors
Worked and slept, laughed and loved.
Near the center stands a large block of stone,
A silent sentinel guarding the entrance,
Its surface inscribed with symbols
Of the sun, the snake, and the four directions.
Nearby I sit on a rock,
Its surface pitted from the breaking of nuts
And the drip of water from the ceiling's edge.
The firepit shows evidence of recent use.
Perhaps by someone like me,
A wanderer returning home.
I close my eyes and imagine I can hear
The sounds of old ones
Talking about the past and the future,
The men and women working at the day's chores
While they watch their children and grandchildren
Playing and laughing;
Later sitting quietly and listening,
Passing the history of our people
From generation to generation,
The old and the young together as a family, as a people,
Their stories and songs now held in the creviced wall.
I feel that I have been here before, that I belong,
Part of the past, part of the present.
A tear rolls down my cheek
Joining the spring rains which have begun to fall.

I AM AN INDIAN!

How often have you heard or said "I'm part Indian"? If you have, then some Native American elders have something to teach you. A very touching example was told by a physician from Oregon who discovered as an adult that he was Indian. This is his story. Listen well:

Some twenty or more years ago while serving the Mono and Chukchanse and Chownumnee communities in the Sierra Nevada, I was asked to make a housecall on a Mono elder. She was 81 years old and had developed pneumonia after falling on frozen snow while bucking up some firewood.

I was surprised that she had asked for me to come since she had always avoided anything to do with the services provided through the local agencies. However it seemed that she had decided I might be alright because I had helped her grandson through some difficult times earlier and had been studying Mono language with the 2nd graders at North Fork School.

She greeted me from inside her house with a Mana' hu, directing me into her bedroom with the sound of her voice. She was not willing to go to the hospital like her family had pleaded, but was determined to stay in her own place and wanted me to help her using herbs that she knew and trusted but was too weak to do alone. I had learned to use about a dozen native medicinal plants by that time, but was inexperienced in using herbs in a life or death situation. She eased my fears with her kind eyes and gentle voice. I stayed with her for the next two days, treating her with herbal medicine (and some vitamin C that she agreed to accept).

She made it through and we became friends. One evening several years later, she asked me if I knew my elders. I told her that I was half Canadian and half Appalachian from Kentucky. I told her that my Appalachian grandfather was raised by his Cherokee mother but nobody had ever talked much about that and I didn't want anyone to think that I was pretending to be an Indian. I was uncomfortable saying I was part Indian and never brought it up in normal conversation.

"What! You're part Indian?" she said. "I wonder, would you point to the part of yourself that's Indian. Show me what part you mean."

I felt quite foolish and troubled by what she said, so I stammered out something to the effect that I didn't understand what she meant. Thankfully the conversation stopped at that point. I finished bringing in several days worth of firewood for her, finished the yerba santa tea she had made for me and went home still thinking about her words.

Some weeks later we met in the grocery store in town and she looked down at one of my feet and said, "I wonder if that foot is an Indian foot. Or maybe it's your left ear. Have you figured it out yet?"

I laughed out loud, blushing and stammering like a little kid. When I got outside after shopping, she was standing beside my pick-up, smiling and laughing. "You know" she said, "you either are or you aren't. No such thing as part Indian. It's how your heart lives in the world, how you carry yourself. I knew before I asked you. Nobody told me. Now don't let me hear you say you are part Indian anymore."

She died last year, but I would like her to know that I've heeded her words. And I've come to think that what she did for me was a teaching that the old ones tell people like me, because others have told me that a Native American elder also said almost the same thing to them. I know her wisdom helped me to learn who I was that day and her words have echoed in my memory ever since. And because of her, I am no longer part Indian,

I
am
Indian.

Crystal Tears

What do you, if I may ask, worry about in your "perfect" little world?
Grant me the pleasure of knowing this one thingÖ
Is it for the safety of your family that you yearn?
Or is it your wish to possess that which you do not, but others have?


Come travel with me on a journey through another oneís mindÖ
Become one with me as I ponder the reason Yonah cried.
Can you open your heart to receive the unknown?
Or are you afraid of itÖ Afraid to see the person you really are?


Come and seeÖ Hear the man, Yonah, as he cries.
Feel with me the heartache he feels for the pain of others from long ago.
IF you feel at all, you will feel as I feel.
Our spirits are ages past due for a release of feeling for others and our uncaring ways.


In his hand, he holds a bookÖ One he hopes will lead him home.
He is on a quest for his family and a people long ago.
As he reads, he begins to cryÖ ButÖ Why?
Others walk by and see his tearsÖ Tears of sorrow, which can not be contained.


Those passing by can not understand these tearsÖ
The tears he sheds are crystal clear, for they are pure of heart.
They are shed in sadness for loved ones he has found.
Shed not only for them, but those that they knew.


Yonah is in search of his family butÖ See what he has found.
He sees The Trail Of Tears shed by his family and those of their friends!
In his mind, he has walked with them hand in hand.
He has run with them for eternity, it seems, from those who oppressed and murdered them.


Have you yet to understand the reason for his tears?
Or are his thoughts so different from yours that you do not see?
Little does one understand the mind of another who is unlike them.
Many are those unwilling to identify with those who dare to be different.


I feel for each and every people who are or have ever been.
Do you care for others and the injustices they have born?
Are you able to cry with those who cry?
Have you ever cried for those who cried?


We need to learn to cry for those who longed to be freeÖ
Reach into your soul for the crystal tears you have long forgotten.
These are perfect drops, like Yonahís, and shed because of the cruelty of man.
Those who cried before him are the reason for the Crystal Tear Drops that Yonah shed.

Jeg glemmer det altid - jeg er ikke forfatter, jeg er ikke engang forfatterspire. Jeg er ganske vist glad for at skrive, men det er også det. Når jeg sætter mig for at skrive en længere historie, går det altså galt. Det er noget møg. Jeg vil så gerne skrive videre på "Tern På Stribe", men gymnasiestress forhindrer mig. Det er selvfølgelig pissehamrende træls, men hvad kan man gøre? :( måske burde jeg bare holde mig til fesne noveller og intetsigende digte? XD ej, men altså, det blev jeg lige nødt til at komme ud med, haha. Håber ellers I har en god mandag? :D <3

Lukas. I.

Ginne
Ginne@[Lukas. I. C.] aww, hvor er du sød <3 du har som altid ret, og bare den kommentar letter det hele en smule. Jo, det er nok rigtigt... om jeg så brændte for det eller ej, jeg hader at give op xD tusind tak :) <3

Hey guys! I'm so sorry i haven't been uploading that much recently, it's just because I've been super busy with school and rehearsals. I'll probably update a bunch of books and things after February third. I really hate to disappoint you but it's just been really difficult to update. I hope you understand, and I'll be updating soon.

This is my final goodbye to Movellas.

I finally understand. Movellas is truly a place where no happiness can be found. To the very end, it continued to expose innocent minds to a horrific reality - a reality that our world is not designed to comprehend. I can’t let any of my friends undergo that same hellish epiphany.

For the time it lasted, I want to thank you. For making my dreams come true. For being a friend to all the members.

And most of all, thank you for being part of my Łîtèrâtürê Çłúb!
