Here is an Easter challenge, a competition for all you creative fiends! You’ll see below the start of a nasty piece of work. Your job is to write the next paragraph once you’ve read the story so far. You can join in as often as you like – the only rule is no two consecutive paragraphs by the same writer. Let’s see where we can go with this one!
Comments on each writer’s contribution(s) will appear on Facebook under ‘A challenge … a competition for all you creative fiends …’ to avoid interrupting the flow of the story.
Remember to post your submission to the comment section below, anywhere else and your piece will not be part of the competition.
