rĀthe Writing Challenge: Leg Emoji

rĀthe™ – A Revolution in Publishing

Remember when writing was fun?  

Before you were told how hard it used to be to get published?

We’ve discarded the old world way of thinking.

We believe writing is fun, and should remain so. That’s why we’ve distilled the writing process into easy steps.

Step 1.  Write it   

Step 2.  Make it available  

Step 3.  Distribution to people other than family and friends 

(Bonus: Retain a much more equitable share of the earnings.)

that’s rĀthe!

We have a fun challenge for all writers!

rĀthe would like your help to solve the mystery of the Leg Emoji!

This Apple emoji lives alongside the smiley face, high-five, and the others on iPhones.  

We aren’t kidding!

Can you explain this emoji in a Short Story of 1500 to 5000 words?

We can’t wait to read it – on rĀthe!  All you have to do is write and publish a  short story (1500 – 5000 words) and publish it to the rĀthe portal that incorporates, explains, animates, stars, launches, shoots (you get the point!) about this emoji – to help unravel this mystery?  We don’t know? We are befuddled, mystified, stymied, stumped? We haven’t a clue. That’s why we are asking you!    

We thought emojis are supposed to be pictorial representations of emotions.  Happy-face, high-five, kisses, you know… So what emotion does a Leg capture? You tell us!

If you haven’t heard, rĀthe doesn’t believe in genre.  We believe in the power of the emotional journeys created for our rĀthe mobile app users by our talented authors.  

That’s why we have our own classification system: Magic Words.  Here are our Magic Word Categories:

AdventureFunFantasyMystery
InspirationHopeSurpriseFright
SoulRomanceHistoryPassion
ThrillYouEscapeLearning

Which one of our Magic Word categories will your emoji short story be in??

Did we mention this isn’t a contest?  Did we leave out the part there are no losers?   Submissions are not judged. There is no deadline for submission. Oh, and no fees either!

The rĀthe Author who sells the most Episodes from Titles submitted for this challenge by December 22nd, 2019 – wins!  

Your Short Story can be launched on rĀthe at any time prior to Leg Challenge end which is midnight December 22, 2019.  Obviously, the more time a story is available, theoretically the more opportunity for it’s success. However, that is only a theory.  Scalability (or, how much rĀthe readers enjoy your story) of the story itself will tell the tale.

The challenge will run until midnight on December 22nd, 2019. 

What does the winner – win?  A Leg trophy of course!  A bunch of accolades, fun marketing, and a big ole push from rĀthe – About YOU and your work.  Everywhere within our reach.  And of course, you’ll earn income from your Episode sales.

rĀthe will feature your stories (all of them) on our website as they arrive!  

Help us solve this mystery!!!!
