pixiv Novels is holding the contest, "Writing Support Project ~ Rain ~"!

Greetings from pixiv.

On June 8th, 2021 (Tue), Novels is holding the contest, "Writing Support Project ~ Rain ~".
This contest accepts novels under a theme that changes periodically.
The theme this round is "rain". Works featuring any rainy situation will be accepted, including taking shelter from the rain in a mysterious shop, an underwater city that was submerged entirely by rain, and the association of rain and hydrangea.

One winner will be chosen via a lottery from among the contestants. They'll be able to receive an item bringing sun to their soul (they can pick between a high-end umbrella, high-performance rain gear, or waterproof wireless headphones). Amazon gift cards will be given to 20 runners-up.

Entry Period:
From June 8th, 2021 (Tue) to July 31st, 2021 (Sat), 11:59 pm JST

Entry Format:
Please post your novel to pixiv and attach both the project tag "執筆応援PJ21Jun" and at least one sub-theme tag to your novel. You can pick whichever of these tags you like (original text in parenthesis).
