The Crystal Door Knob Writing Challenge Part II

This is a writing challenge! If you have not, please read the first part to this challenge before you continue to this part. Click here. Thank you.
Now I challenge you to use the first paragraph of my story, written in Part II.  Some things I have taken out, so I indicated it for you to fill in with your story.
I will pick 2 winners, and publish the winning stories on my blog, or if you have your own blog, I will attach the link to your published story (crediting the story to you of course).
First place will be published for May.
Second place will be published for June.
The door handle was pure crystal glass. Did she dare touch it? Did she even know what might be beyond that simple door, with a knob of crystal glass? She did not know. Her hand reached out again, this was her moment. But...she once again drew back her hand. She didn't really want to know what was beyond the door. Would there be joy? Hardships? But yet, the girl did want to know and continued. This time, summoning all her willpower, she turned the knob slowly. Then it came to pass. She opened the door, and a crowd erupted with applause.This girl was a princess, dressed in a modern yellow dress. And this was her moment to change the world. For the better. She took a deep breath, smiled her wide, cheerful smile, and waved like she had been taught so many times before. Even so, this was her first day of putting it into practice.

  1. This sounds like a good idea. I shared it on Pinterest!

  2. I have a few questiosn about this. I'm supposed to write a story, using your 'story starter' as the beginning, right? Or do I just have to include it in some way? And I'm not supposed to change anything in it, or I can change things?

    1. Hey, Faith. Here is the answer:
      You start the story with the story starter. You do not change the story starter. This should answer your question!

    2. Yep, that covers it! Thanks, Amy. ;)

  3. Amy, I just tried to enter my story. The comments won't allow that many words. Perhaps you should have them enter by email? Let me know.

    1. Now I have a contact form on the side of my blog. But I know you already sent it via Google documents. Thanks for entering.

  4. My entry is up here:

    Thanks for such a fun challenge, Amy! :D


Thank you for commenting! I always want to know what you think, and I will do my best to answer your questions accordingly. Please keep all comments appropriate and nice. Thank you!
