Crime Time Weekly Challenge - CTWC1

Hi Everyone,

Myself and Anne are happy to bring you a group challenge for Crime Time!

So here are the guidelines:

This is a weekly challenge, so each week a new theme will be selected by the hosts and posted to you all. The theme is open to interpretation – as long as there is an obvious link between the story and the theme, or ideally uses the words in some way that form the theme then we will accept the submission. Excessive violence, sexual aggression etc will not be tolerated – only use as necessary. This group caters for Crime, Mystery and Thriller genres – submissions of this genre will be accepted, any others will not.

At the end of the week, a bubble mail will be sent to you again to ask you to vote on the stories that have been entered into the challenge. We will ask you to nominate a 1st, 2nd and 3rd winner. The winner will be announced the day after voting has closed.

The 1st place winner will get their work posted on our featured page for a month.

Theme (Week 1): “In the dark it fell”
Word Count: Min 500 – Max 1000 Short stories/ fiction (no scripts, poetry or prose)
Date: Open from 19th September to 23nd September
Voting: 24th September
Winners: Announced 25th September
New Theme: Announced 26th September

To submit your work; attach link to this journal.

Please remember – above all this is still a group that encourages constructive feed back – so please take the time to review the submissions and comment on them!

Happy writing Crime Timers!

Flic and Anne
