Challenge Corner #12 – Guilty?
Heyheyhi, everybody. Hope you’re all doing well! (Sorry for being a day late – apparently my 1am brain can’t do dates! Or timezones, for that matter.)
This week’s challenge is one for all you budding crime writers, but don’t worry if that’s not your style – as ever, here at Challenge Corner, our challenges are open to any kind of writing you fancy trying!
And the challenge is…
– “I swear, I didn’t do it!”
Crime fiction or otherwise, this kind of thing would be perfect for character development – who believes the accused? Who doesn’t? How does that affect their relationship?
And, of course, we have super bonus options for you, too:
+ Bonus Points: you give us at least one red herring (laying a false trail)
++ Double Bonus Points: you also include a literal herring – red, too, if you want.
As ever, best of luck to you all, and I look forward to reading any results! Happy challenging!
