Seven Deadly Sins... with a twist.

This challenge has ended!

You know how Gluttony is always represented with a fat guy or Lust with a prostitute? I find that extremely lazy and boring. Wouldn’t it be more interesting to have a prostitute represent Sloth, as she is unwilling to learn any skill whatsoever (and which would ultimately lead to her undoing?)

Write one (or seven, if you wanna start a series) story about a deadly sin presented in an unexpected or unusual manner, Stay as far away from stereotypes as possible and most of all, the sinner must be the architect of their own demise.

Think you have what it takes to accept this challenge?

    It pains me to pick a winner without having been able to read Abby Wall’s… But the one I chose was because it took me out of my comfort zone and made spin my head as bad news usually do. Thanks everyone and keep up the great work!

  2. Avatar Nymphaea Rose

    Yeah Abby, I can’t see yours either. I tried all three and it kept telling me something went haywire.

  3. Avatar C. Augusto Valdés

    Can anyone else visualize Abby wall’s story or is it just me who’s getting 404’d?

  4. Avatar Mostly Harmless

    OK I’m not sure whether I stick ENTIRELY to the challenge, but I certainly stayed away from stereotypes…

  5. Avatar C. Augusto Valdés

    Multiple sinners is an interesting concept. By all means!

  6. Avatar maximumride36

    i guess so

    Is it possible to have multiple sinners – like a group?

Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
