Contest Completed


Inspector - An Urban Legend


This contest is taken from a creative writing exercise I've posted in The Lotus Eaters group. I hope you will check it out and consider joining.
The Lotus Eaters

The contest is for poetry or prose. Entries should be the result of the exercise.

You are a Crime Scene Investigator, in a person�s home after they�ve died. What items do you find and what do you conclude about the person from those items? What do they say about the person�s life? What do they say about the person�s death? Take at least 3 items.

You could use items you have in mind, or, if you want more of a challenge to your own thought and writing, take some random items you could find on E-bay or from images on the internet. By taking random items you are forced to consider someone you haven't already conceived of.

3 items could be a lot for a poem, so you may need a few stanzas, or even break it down to a few poems. This exercise leans towards prose more than verse.
