****Saturday update (happy Saturday, peeps!): Due to wildly suspicious circumstances, look for your results later this afternoon. More time for you to read & leave warm fuzzies on the tales!****
This contest is now closed to entries (but always open to comments/feedback!). Thanks to everyone who dared give this crazy challenge a go. The decision by prosecutor/judge Maggie Duncan will be posted tomorrow (Saturday) morning.
Welcome to a special MURDER MYSTERY episode of Flash! Friday!
Being a generous dragon (at times, anyway), I am providing your:
* WEAPONS and
It will be your job to tell me who kills whom, and why (or whatever you think we ought to know)….
And now…. we welcome you to tiptoe furtively into the flames of Flash! Friday # 11. Today’s two-fold prompt is a three-way choice of weapons followed by a three-way choice of locations…. all accompanied by a heart-pounding 150 – 400 word story limit (minimum of 150, max of 400); be sure to include your word count and Twitter handle if you’ve got one). Read the rules if you haven’t already, and then…. GET WRITING!
To sum up:
* Word limit: Write a 150 – 400 word murder mystery story based on your choice from the weapons & locations photo prompts below (choose one or more from each category). Post your entry in the comments on this post. Include your word count and Twitter handle so we can promote your story and run background checks/plant incriminating evidence in your back pocket. (And then go comment on the other stories, if you have a minute. If you don’t, some of them are likely to suspect you of something dark and nefarious. Not saying who. But some of them.)
* Deadline: 9pm ET tonight
* Winners: will post tomorrow (Saturday) morning
* Prize: A smoky, fiery e-trophy badge, your own winner’s page here at Flash! Friday, a 60-second interview feature next Wednesday, and WORLDWIDE FAME AND ADULATION!!!! (and this week, possibly, criminal investigation or being cleared thereof, though Flash! Friday would like to state unambiguously for the record that dragons always serve as their own alibi).
* Follow @FlashFridayFic on Twitter for the latest news/announcements/dragon etiquette guidelines (yes, dragons have etiquette. It just doesn’t look like yours). And now for your prompts:
