The contest has come to a close and I have decided on the winners. I mainly chose based upon how interesting I found the idea, and how well-suited it would be to the kind of things I write. Even if I did not pick your idea, there is still a slight chance that I may use it in the future.
Without further ado, here are the three winning ideas!
For sci-fi, we have an idea submitted by “Atul Jain:”
“With the rise of AI and automation, the human experience fundamentally changes. Our decisions are made for us as algorithms predict our needs before being consciously realized. Mankind reaches a point where it must redefine itself.”
For horror, we have an idea submitted by “Draco Malfoy:”
People go to the doctor to “get better.” Everyone ranging from war veterans to asylum patients. What they don’t realize, however, is that the doctors mental treatment places something in their head. Something that shouldn’t be there; a virus that allows them to be controlled by the doctor, who has very, very evil plans.
For mystery we have an idea submitted by “The Cardmaster:”
Malcolm Lyndon is a detective in London, hired to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of one Issac Greenway, a rich old gentleman who lived alone in a tall tower in a rather quiet part of the city. The man was found in his favorite armchair with a bullet in his head and an envelope containing a rather mysterious message in his hand.
I will write and publish these stories here eventually. It may take a bit.
Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to all who entered! I had a rather tough time picking the best ideas.
Bye for now!
