    I'll be going with a "journal" type of first person writing. I really liked "Robinson Crusoe", the one that was completely in the "journal" style.
    I know, the writer himself was stranded on an island for about a week or so, and based it on that. I'll base mine on one Event as well. Well, I'll turn the "enemy humans" into something else and make it a little more epic ;)

    might Join. It's just very hard for me to write a whole story in First-Person.

    Technically speaking you could do third, but only the contest creator could clarify what he actually meant. Pretty sure it just means no 'switching' to different perspectives/branching lines/alternate scenes ;)

    Good for you. Lets get a lot of competitors, writing a lot of good shit.

    WIP:

    I’d been working in the mines for about a week when I thought the walls were closing in on me. I cried for help but got no response. And as the walls were just about to seal shut, I could’ve sworn I’d seen a silhouette of a man on the deep in the mine, calmly waving his hand at me as if to say hello.
    After that I remember the air being sucked out of me. I remember the buzz in my ears when everything around me was dark. But most of all, I remember, or in least I think I remember, the feel of shrill breath on the back of my neck.

    For those wondering, the contest specifically states that the story must be written from the first person. 'I'
