Croak & Dagger Short Story Challenge

Welcome to the Croak & Dagger Short Story Challenge!

All Croak & Dagger members are invited to finish a short story inspired by a Charles Schultz Peanuts cartoon republished September 2, 2016 in the Albuquerque Journal.

  • Snoopy begins the story at his typewriter: 
"It was a dark and stormy night. Suddenly, a shot rang out!"
  • Snoopy pauses for inspiration, then adds: 
"The maid screamed. A door slammed."
  • Gripped by inspiration, Snoopy adds: 
"Suddenly, a pirate ship appeared on the horizon."
  • Snoopy grins, thinking 'this twist in the plot will baffle my readers'.

Challenge Rules:
  1. The challenge is open to members of Croak & Dagger
  2. Your story must begin with Snoopy's opening lines
  3. Email your story to croakanddagger@yahoo.com
  4. All entries will be published here on our blog
  5. Challenge runs until October 31, 2016
