The Nanotale Challenge Winners


What Is A Nanotale

A Nanotale is a story that is written in 6 to 12 words.  There’s no scope to narrate, build characters, or create setting but it still has a deep meaning.  It should either give you some food for thought, a reason to contemplate, or make you laugh, smirk, cry, or smile.   It should invoke a feeling in the reader.   Do not mix it with caption writing.

The Nanotale Contest

Nanotale ContestI held a contest on Instagram to write a nanotale.  The prompt was “Write A Nanotale to Describe 2020” and I received some wonderful entries.    It’s time we announce the winner.   Anjali Kathuria has won the contest and wins an Amazon Voucher for Rs. 500/-.  Many congratulations!

Indeed, it was a year that forced us to indulge in coffee while binge reading, netflixing while gobbling chips.   From lighting diyas to clapping together, we did everything that we could to get rid of the unwanted virus and bring our life back to normal.

Thank you for sharing your thought.
