Hmmm no one has posted up their submissions yet.... Shall I start the ball rolling?

I sent in the following two...

The Game
Roll the dice, choose the vice, who dies? you decide.

A knife edged cliff hanger
As the knife found flesh, he plunged... to his death.



Now, your turn...

OK... I sent:

Writer Incarcerated
"A ten word crime story; surely an injusitce against literature?"

The Verdict
"Guilty, your Honour," said the jury spokesperson.  Mary got life.

Here is what I entered. Guess we'll find out soon enough....

For better or for worse.

“Signed your will?” She put ‘knife-block’ on the wedding list.


That’ll never come out.

“You’ll never take me alive.”

I didn’t want to.
Messy.

Time wounds all heels.
Cruellest month, April. S’true. Though he didn’t croak ‘til July.


The case for the defence.
“Serves him right for snoring,” she said, bleaching the sheets.


The Case of the Obliging Chemist.
“Another delivery of acid, Dr Crippen? Certainly. Anyone I know?”


Stating the Bleeding Obvious.
Of course, it would have to look like an accident.

Granted, but there have been many crimes against literature by authors using more than 10 words.....some should be confined to one; "Goodbye".

In the words of the young Mr Grace; "You`ve all done very well"

I hope that HCWF choose to put a good selection of entries on the site so we can all have a read - there must be a good few entries we still haven't seen.

At least we know who'll be starting the "I'll be at Harrogate 2009, will you" topic. Well done, I'm glad it was one of us.
