Group-Sponsored I Found a Diary in the Third Drawer Down Contest
|Oct 31, 2019
The Third Drawer Down group is sponsoring a contest to celebrate that messy drawer where you put all that stuff you don’t have time for but just you might need or want later. Or maybe it’s where you hide something among the mess.
Imagine you stuffed your old diary down in that drawer, or maybe you found your lover’s diary, or a parent’s diary or your boss’s diary. What secrets would it divulge? What mystery would you uncover? What you do with that diary is up to you!
Or maybe it’s your character’s current diary of his dastardly deeds, the one thing that can implicate him in a crime. Will he be caught? Will he get away with it?
All you need to do is make sure your story includes 50% diary entries.
All we want is your story… Honest. We’ll never tell!
