Now it’s the reverse. Seems the run on story requests has slowed down. There were plenty of choices this morning and I even had time to click around to find something that caught my interest.
So I am doing this for JustJen.
There is a dead body inside the trunk of my car…
I can’t believe this — I leave my car at the airport and when I return from my 3-day trip and am going to put my luggage, there is a dead body in it. It is the body of a senator’s son who has been kidnapped several days before. Suddenly, I have a homicide detective asking me questions and reporters trying to get a story from me and the senator making grief phone calls — and not to mention the kidnappers who somehow think I could help the Police Department break this case. How this is my life? I’m just a boring accountant. How the heck could I get out from this mess?
And how can I land a date with the brooding homicide detective who works this case? Uhm, yeah, so this last one, might be a wishful thinking but darn, he’s dreamy…
I imagine this would fall in the lighter or with humor contemporary story, despite the dead body. Please make the detective African American. The accountant should be white, nerdy guy. No insta-love, please.
So I’ve never written a mystery/police type story before. But I like doing things that lean to the humorous side so it should be fun. I’ll give a word of warning, this will NOT be a realistic police story, just as shows like Castle and Law & Order are not wholly realistic. It will be to let your imagine soar.
Since I’ve been totally unmotivated to write lately…
