A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

B&P’s Shadorma and Beyond-Detective Fiction


I feel ill-equipped to sub for the Shadorma and Beyond Prompt given my inexperience/discomfort writing in forms. That said I thought as long as I am subbing for an indeterminate amount of time I might as well test out new prompt ideas.

This week we are going to test out Detective Fiction

The locked-room mystery is a subgenre of detective fiction in which a crime—almost always murder—is committed under circumstances under which it was seemingly impossible for the perpetrator to commit the crime and/or evade detection in the course of getting in and out of the crime scene.

Write me a story that takes place primarily in a locker room (it is up to you if the locker room is in a school, gym, or spa). Pay attention to the characters especially I’d really like to see a wide range of personalities.

As always you can write a Shadorma

TAG it B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond and MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie. Then add your link to the Mister Linky widget below.

    I’m working on a locker room mystery in tilus — 3 lines 6/3/1 — learned it hear so I’ll call it a psuedoshadorma. If I knew anything about poetry, I’d do a post, but I’m free form, and now I try shadormas because after 2 years, I finally got the hang of things.

    A one chapter mystery = a shadorma. Now isn’t that ironic. Structured poetry rather than prose. I am a contrarian these days.
