Twenty ways to die

The topic for this contest is: Twenty ways to die

Write a story that somehow incorporates the topic. The story does not have to be specifically about the topic. But should clearly incorporate the topic into the story.

Creative approaches are welcomed. But contest voters will be asked to consider the topic when making a choice for a winner.

A five-chapter book needs to be written covering twenty ways to die. (This does not have to be graphic...it can be implied. Like those old movies where you hear screaming but see nothing and after it's all done you know they were eaten or stabbed...Things like that) The choice of how this is done is up to the author. For example, you can put together twenty murders in a mystery story, or you could write a story about space travel with twenty deaths... The kicker here is all twenty deaths have to be different and happen in different locations...Other than that It's up to the author.

The contest winner will win half of the prize pool which is based on the number of entries. The second and third place winners will each share the remaining prize pool. The prize pool is currently 14.00 member dollars. There are 11 spots still open. If all open spots are used the prize pool will be 36.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 5 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest is closed. Deadline was Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
