I haven't done a monthly contest lately, so I figured I'd revive it. I'm also in need of a little NaNoWriMo help, as I get into the home stretch with this first draft of a mystery novel I'm trying to write.
So here it is: Tell me a creative way to get rid of a bad guy with a musical instrument!
1) Any instrument or style of music is fair game. (Including, but not limited to, accordions!)
2) You must describe your idea in 2 sentences or less.
3) Excessive gore leads to automatic disqualification! (The deed will happen off camera--I'm a little faint-hearted!)
This scene definitely fits with the setting of the book: a crazy music camp torn apart by all sorts of dark and mysterious happenings. I should mention that this is a folk music camp somewhere in the southern mountains, so there is a lot of bluegrass and Celtic music around--along with a little Cajun. But any kind of instrument can show up at a music camp, so use your imagination!
The winner gets a Sauce Piquante CD and my undying gratitude. And if this crazy mystery novel experiment ever leads to publication--and I use your idea--you will be acknowledged and get a free copy of the book, of course!
Back to work--I'm almost at the 40,000 word mark!
