Giveaway & Who Am I?: Divergent Writing Challenge

This weeks challenge at is based on the action packed dystopian, Divergent by Veronica Roth. Fans of Hunger Games are thrilled to have another trilogy to follow. You can read  my Divergent review here. Deadline for the writing challenge is this Thursday, June 9th. You can also enter to win a copy below!

Honest, Brave, Selfless, Peaceful or True, those are the only type of people you can be in the world of DIVERGENT and you can only be ONE! So what happens when a character, like Beatrice Prior, finds themselves embodying more than one of these persona? Who are you when you are not what society expects you to be?

That is the challenge! Write a short story or poem that explores a character that does not quite fit into the world around them. Like Divergent you can create a dystopian environment where everyone is supposed to act a certain way or you can explore a world much closer to your own, like a high school where someone just doesn't quite fit in.

Two writing winners, selected by author Veronica Roth, will receive a free copy of DIVERGENT as well as three books of their choice from HarperTeen. Two comment winners will be selected at random to win a copy of DIVERGENT as well as three books of their choice from HarperTeen.

  1. I'd choose Selfless. People I know always say I'm generous and always look out for others instead of myself :)

    thanks for the contest!

  2. I'd go into Honest. I tell the truth just like it is, no matter how sad or hurtful (well, I try not to hurt anyone) it can be.

  3. Count me in if this is international. I'd go for honest.
    As it is the best policy.

  4. I would be part of peaceful, being calm and happy is important to me.

  5. I'd be honest. I think honesty is one of the most important things you can have.

  6. According to the FB quiz I am brave. I would have chosen selfless but I guess brave fits too. I need to read Divergant to learn more! :)

  8. Love your blog title! Is this giveaway open to US? Anyway I think I'd be peaceful. That's the path I seem to have taken in my actual life. Well unless there's a faction called Sarcastic, lol

  11. I'd choose Honest - I really value people telling me like it is, and I'm always blunt and up-front about everything. Thanks for the contest :)

  12. I'd choose peaceful because I'm a pacifist at heart. I hate blood and violence, and I never really get mad or lose my temper. Thanks for the giveaway!


  13. I would say honest because I am always telling the truth!

  14. i would probably choose brave since bravery is a trait that i hope i'll possess one day..
