Here is a challenge started at the Bank Holiday and it ain’t over yet! You’ll see below the start of a short story. 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.
Comments on each writer’s contribution(s) will appear on my Facebook timeline under ‘A Bank Holiday Writing Challenge’ to avoid interrupting the flow of the story. Comments off-topic will be removed so please use the Facebook link or email your comments to email@example.com
Remember to post your submission to the comment section below, anywhere else and your piece will not be part of the challenge.
The original intention was to end the challenge midnight Monday 7 May. I have decided to extend the deadline as it’s been such fun reading everyone’s paragraphs and clearly the story is not yet finished – so get writing folks – like I said, it ain’t over yet! The finished work will appear on this blog and in an e-book anthology of stories and poems the proceeds of which will go to Rotary charities.
A Bank Holiday Investigation
Katherine’s clients say if you want to play away, you have to have a good cover story, maybe develop an interest in pottery or painting for example. No good going to a lonely hearts website, far too easily discovered, Katherine knows that as a PI. Katherine’s clients frequently say that they ‘just know’, that’s where most of her work comes from, people who ‘just know’.
