The end of the year and the start of a new one brings change, it is a landmark in time that many use to set goals to better themselves. In accordance with that, RoyalRoad™ is hosting a short story contest about characters who try to change, whether it’s by breaking a bad habit or by bringing their life around.
You can participate in this contest, by submitting your entry via this Google Form.
The theme of the entry is the concept of your chosen character changing themselves physically, mentally, or even by setting a goal to change.

- Only one entry per author.

- Try to keep profanity, gore and sexual content to a bare minimum
- January 31st- 23:59 GMT
- You may edit your submission before the deadline.
Many factors will be taken into consideration when we do the judging. From how true the short story remains to the contest theme, to grammar and spelling as well as overall quality. The winners will get the following awards:
1st place - 3 months of Reader Premium
2nd place - 2 months of Reader Premium
3rd place - 1 month of Reader Premium
But the best reward of all is setting a tone for the new year, to visualize improvement and advancement and to at least get your fictional character to do it.
Happy New Year,
