It's challenge Friday, SciFi writers!

Have you ever wondered how it feels to drop from space towards a planet? For this month's challenge, we ask you to write about a landing. Or watering. Whatever - give us a story about the landing on a planet, any planet. Yes, it can be Earth, Kepler 186f, Gliese 581c, or TOI700D. Or any other planet you can think of, and we won't even discriminate poor old Pluto here...

The rules:

Your story must be written in English, qualify as science fiction and fit the prompt.

The maximum word count is 1000 and the time limit for the challenge is Sunday, April  25th 2021, 23:59 UTC.

Publish your story on your profile—either as a new story or as a new chapter in an existing anthology. Only one chapter please.

To submit your entry, please post the link to your story in the comments below this chapter and fill this submission form.

Please take the time to check out your fellow competitors entries and to connect with other SciFi writers on Wattpad!
