The results of this contest will be available to read next week.
Now, arena spectators, we release onto the sands of our battlefield… Challenge #3:
Like all good stories, this one will start with someone being shoved off their mortal coil. This will be followed up by someone tracking down, to use a portmanteau, whodunnit.
Was it the Yellow King? Did he kill Colonel Mustard in the swamp shack with the candle stick? Maybe it was the sexy mystery woman sitting at the bar? Perhaps it was the alternate personality of our hero?
All shall be revealed in time.
The challenge is to write a murder mystery.
There are no limits on the setting or genre.
Try to keep it under 5,000 words.
This story will be posted on 5/28/14.
Best of luck, contestants.
