More 12 word novels

This challenge has ended!

People have been asking for more 12 word novel challenges, so here I am making one. For this 12 word novel, you have to make it about a certain tpic that I will tell you about later. They HAVE to be 12 words and you HAVE TO WRITE ABOUT THE TOPIC I GIVE YOU. Ok those are pretty much the guidelines…

The topics are: Murder. And seeing a dead loved one. :)
Yay happy topics!!
Burying her frail body wasn’t the hard part. Killing her though, was.

This was something that my creative writing teacher told me about. He heard about it from a radio contest. The topics are mine the the main challenge isn’t.

Let me know if you would like more!!

Ok you can begin.

    I actually physically demand a sequel. These are great and I want to try my hand at another theme.

  2. Avatar Robert Quick

    It might not be fair but it’s life! Honestly, I’m used to it. I will enter in the next one, but don’t rush out and redo it just for me. Let it come naturally. Thanks anyway though.

  3. Avatar Kendall Lynne

    im sorry!!! that’s no fair…

    I’m going to do another 12 word novel challenge if people want me too. I have NO IDEA who the winner will be. They were all so fantabulous. Sooo… What I might do, is see which one has the higher pencil rating. I don’t know if that’s fair though.

  4. Avatar Robert Quick

    !@#$% I finally came up with another one while I was drifting off to sleep, vetoed the oncoming dream train, and rushed to my computer to find that the challenge had ended. Boo!

  5. Avatar Kendall Lynne

    Only 3 days until this challenge ends!!

  6. Avatar Judith Burton

    I gave it a try!

  7. Avatar Tad Winslow

    @THX0477: You dropped a challenge within a challenge. Well played, sir.

  8. Ahfl_icon THX 0477

    Just to put it out there, I’m trying to go through and do sequels or prequels to these entries. The short format just seems to beg for continuation or set-up. I won’t get to all of them, and it will take me a long time to get to the ones I do. Sooooo, feel free to beat me to the good ones, folks.

  9. Avatar August Rode

    I gave it a shot.

  24. Avatar H.S. Wift

    I entered another one, for your other topic.

  25. Avatar Robert Quick

    I gave it a shot. I have a half a dozen more that didn’t quite make the cut. This was interesting and difficult.
    @ H.S. Wift- Thank you for acting as a guiding star or lighthouse, on the sea of uncertainty.

  26. Avatar Mr.Gabriel

    Always loved these. Never did have to think so much.
