YOU are The Exquisite Corpse

The Exquisite Corpse is a strange name for a contest. I'm not making a corpse. But if I did it would probably exquisite, if I do say so myself. I'd turn killing it an art. That line triggers something in your brain doesn't it?
 This isn't a competition to find the greatest corpse, is it? I was told it is a contest to find out who can impress Derek Landy, author of Skulduggery Pleasant (...), this month.
 My only possible explanation for the name is that you probably don't want to participate in this competition, if you want to live.

 That's all I can say.

 Even so, it is what has been taking up my free time at the moment, so you may not see "Chapter One" until I'm done. Then again, you may not see it at all...

 I shouldn't joke about that. Of course I don't see myself winning, so don't worry, the story is coming.

 It's a silly little thing but the good part about it is that each chapter is short, and each chapter has many possible follow-up chapters, so if you are getting bored, please tell me, and I'll see what I can do. 

 There's no fighting in the first chapter. You'd have to wait for chapter two. But then if you wanted any REAL fighting, you'll have to wait for chapter five or six.

 No, I don't know what's going on in my story I think about all day, from when I wake up, to when I try and fall asleep, everything that happens to me, or in the news, it happens to my characters. 

 It's pretty interesting. I just need to... finish this "Corpse". That's what their calling the entries, right? Even if it's just a story, or a picture... 

 Otherwise it's the invitation to mine. 



  1. Shoot, I already entered... I'M GOING TO DIE *runs around in circles*

  2. I haven't entered yet...I don't really have to worry about what I'll do, since I'm most talented at not being talented, and I'm not creative so I couldn't really come up with something totally original and unexpected...unless I eat a live chicken dressed as Tanith....but hey, every entry gets a poster, right? So, everyone's a winner! XD

    But the actual winner is a bit more of a winner than the other winners, so congratulations to whoever that will be!

    1. I don't see why you shouldn't eat live chicken dressed like Tanith. Do that. My back-up plan was to read Chapter 54 of Mortal Coil, and slowly descend into tears. But that would be a lie for me, because I was like this is SO cool, reading that.
      Anyone reading this is welcome to steal that idea, if they want to... (You'd deserve it XD)
