What is this contest about?
We have less than a month away from Star Wars Force Awakens and we just can't. So here's our challenge: write a speculative fanfiction about the upcoming movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Although we have little knowledge about the upcoming movie and the characters, fandom is about fan creativity and about what you think will happen. If you're already excited by the upcoming movie, use that to inspire your next story!
Here are some writing prompts to get you inspired:
ONE: Rey and Finn steal the Millenium Falcon from Han and they start a wild goose chase.
TWO: Write your best theory or speculative fanfiction about the plot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
THREE: Finn gets into a lightsaber duel with an old jedi who is revealed to be Luke. Luke tries to steal his lightsaber back from Finn.
FOUR: Stories from the Storm Troopers break room. What's the latest gossip about Kylo Ren?
FIVE: Star Wars: The Force Awakens from the perspective of BB8.
