Writing Prompt:Redrum

I’ve been watching a lot of crime thrillers lately and I got me thinking, how would  commit 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

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


  1. Revenge (think of things someone might kill someone for in retaliation)
  2. Money
  3. Nutjob
