Competition: History can be the greatest training.

Finished
History can be the greatest training.

“Many seek to subjugate others through their past. Here I give you the chance to use your past as a beacon. Spin your tale to me and show others how you became the person you are today. Show us the events that took you down your path. Let me record your story so it may be passed down throughout the ages, so that others who follow can learn from your victories and your defeats.” – The Historian.

You must use the perspective of your character and give detail of the events turning them down their path. You must also give at least a short piece about a victory and defeat. I want you to paint a picture in the reader’s mind, and spin a story that will grab their attention. You may choose any path to write about. Minimum of 750 words. Judging will start the day after the competition ends and it may take a few days, but it all depends on the amount of submissions. The judging process used will be the Voice's fiction rubric (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ORZSSPj1_-15s-zHfyyqTuIBrC1s_DyvXkRoDcnzkDI/edit#gid=0). Use the following files for submission, .doc, .rtf, .docx, .pdf, .md. No links to google docs and the like.
