Title: Short Story #22 Challenge by Aug. 1st - the killer in you
Post by: lan on July 21, 2014, 03:11:38 PM
All right, here's the next challenge, and I know you'll love this:

Any theme, 1000 to 1200 word count. Just one minor thing:

You must kill at least one of your characters.  At the beginning, the middle or the end of your story, doesn't matter as long as it's a real, permanent death with no chance of resurrection.

Make it tragic, whimsical, gory as hell, you decide, but make it intense.

The reader's gotta feel you're loving every bloody second of it.

There you are, sharpen your pencil until it's ready to pierce flesh and drink blood, go psycho and write away!

PM your entries to me by Aug 1st midnight GMT.

thanks for stickying  ;)
