This week, our Sunday Scribblings prompt is Paper. If you decide to write a post based on this week’s prompt, be sure to go back here and share your link so everyone can see how you interpreted things! Here’s what I did with it…
I’m on vacation!
So that means that I’ve completely slacked off and have not written anything in response to today’s Sunday Scribblings prompt.
But I will… So here goes…
I’m hanging out with some friends this weekend and they thought it would be a fun time to solve a fake cold case on Friday night. It was a murder mystery where they had falsely arrested someone who spent more than 20 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
So the first objective of this thing was to prove this guy’s innocence. And we went over all the evidence. And then we went over it all again. And again. And again… In fact, we pretty much solved the whole thing before we figured out how to prove the innocence of the wrongfully convicted.
And here’s how it comes back to paper…
We were provided with newspaper clippings with articles about the night in question. What we failed to pay attention to were the partial articles on the reverse side of the supposedly important articles.
So if you’re ever a part of a game night where you are tasked with solving a fictional cold case, do yourself a favor and check the front and back of every piece of paper that you are given. It’s all important.
Thanks to everyone who participated this week and shared your links! Please visit their blogs, give them a follow, and take a look at how they interpreted the prompt.
Be sure to come back on Wednesday for the next Sunday Scribblings prompt! Encourage other bloggers to challenge themselves with the prompt! Remember that there are no rules for what you write, other than responding to the prompt! You can write fiction, non-fiction, poetry, prose, biography, instruction… it’s all up to you!
