A story grows (or wins) in the telling.

Gather around, wanderers, it is time. Time to share your tales with the world. Everyone has at least one or more to tell, so don't be shy. If you pour your heart into it or touch someone's heart with it, a GeForce GTX 1070 and a copy of Where the Water Tastes Like Wine might become yours!

Where the Water Tastes Like Wine, a narrative-driven game about harvesting tales from all across America, is a testament to the life-changing properties of storytelling. Now the fine people behind it have agreed to read and evaluate the short stories of the GOG community, before picking a winner who shall be awarded the new shiny GTX 1070, plus a GOG copy of the game.

The rules are simple: just use this thread to post your short story (in English) until March 9, 11PM UTC. There is no specific theme, genre, or character limit, but please keep the stories at a reasonable length and their content aligned with our forum posting guidelines.

So what are you waiting for? Those stories are not going to write themselves you know! Or are they...

Where the Water Tastes Like Wine is now available for purchase on GOG.com.
tinyE: I'm a little vague on the story. Does it have to be about wine or to do with wine?
No. But it could be!
First of all, thanks for all the stories you've already shared here! There's plenty of good reading posted - would love to have every thread on GOG to look like that ;)

As for the questions that popped up here - we felt like the rules are clear and simple, but let me answer your concerns. There is no specific theme, no specific character required, nor specific genre we're looking for. If you want to go with a fiction or non-fiction is up to you. The contest is not limited to any regions, so feel free to participate. As for the length, the story needs to fit a single post in the forums, and we would appreciate that your story doesn't make it a two-day reading. I guess you can already figure how long it should be looking at current entries in the thread.

Keep'em coming!
Thank you all for participating! There are loads of entries here, which is great, but it will take some time to go through all of your stories and pick the winner. We're contacting writers who worked on Where the Water Tastes Like Wine, so they can help us choosing the best tale. We'll keep you updated in this thread!
