Writing Prompt:Redrum

I’ve been watching a lot of crime thrillers lately and I got me thinking, how would ┬ácommit the perfect murder? What are some creative ways of doing someone in and getting away with it? For this prompt, let’s get stuck in with the following, make a list of ways to kill a person. Next, make a list of how you could potentially get rid of the body. Add an alibi. Throw in a motive or two and try to knit together just a loose outline of a plot. See what comes out. Have fun! Happy hunting!

Here’s an example to get you started:

Murder weapon:

  1. Drowning
  2. Dressing robe belt
  3. Scissors
  4. Poison
  5. Burial

Body Disposal

  2. Field
  3. Under a house
  4. Dismemberment and burning
  5. Meat grinder
