Краткое описание конкурса
Write a short story with next requirements:
- should follow guidelines of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_story
- max extension 3000 words. It must be narratable out loud from start to end without boring/tiring the listeners
- previous contests had some posts that were like articles, study work, documentation, etc.
This contest is about fictional short stories. Please read carefully this description
- the story must be around and/or set in the 1983 Soviet nuclear false alarm incident
- there is a documentary about the event (links below)
But it's more centered in Petrov and his way to USA. Still, I think it's useful stuff
- Petrov is key in the event, but you are not forced to make him the protagonist of the story
- must be a mix of suspense, folktale, legend and mythology genres
- it must sounds possible, even if it contains fantasy, science fiction, paranormal, etc. Like a myth or legend
- H. P. Lovecraft short stories are a good reference of the type of story to write
Also, some creepypasta stories could be also used as reference
