contest from Matthew Delman at Free the Princess. The rules are listed below, but first, my entry...
Met a murderer today at a crime scene. I don't mean he was there, but I could feel him like I always do when the body is still in situ. How could I not feel his intent? After all, I've killed, too.
Here are the rules:
2. You are allowed as many entries as you can come up with.
3. It doesn't have to be funny; if you can come up with a poignant entry in four sentences, then feel free to submit.
4. You can write it from the perspective of any FICTIONAL character you choose. (If you write historical fiction then you're excused from this rule -- contact me otherwise if you want to write it from the viewpoint of a historical person)
5. It must be posted in the comments of this post no later than 12 am U.S. Eastern Time on Tuesday, June 29, 2010.
My journal entry is from the perspective of my MC, Det. Ryan Bell of the Nashville Police. It was fun to write from his perspective. It got me thinking how he would talk, and even begin the journal--dear, hi, yo...I'd love to read all of your entries, so include them in your comment, or leave your link. And don't forget to link back to Matthew's site if you're participating in the contest.
Thanks, Matthew, for a fun challenge that helped me get into the mind of my MC.
