Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers: How to NOT Get Away With Murder


“How to get away with murder? Certainly not like this.” The news reporter said, standing before an art piece that had been vandalized. “Police reports stated that local man Tony Martin was found dead in the alley behind the museum, killed with the three arrows as you see here still attached to this art piece. Meanwhile, the killer was not hard to find. Hours after discovering Martin’s body, police had tracked and arrested Martin’s roommate, Bryce Jenkins, on suspicious of a homicide.”

“‘I didn’t do it! I didn’t do it! I’m innocent! I was framed!’ A blood-shot wide-eyed Jenkins was caught screaming those words as police shoved him into the back of a cruiser.”

“So is Jenkins innocent?” The news reporter raised her brow, “I will keep you update as the situation unveils. I’m Alaina Thomas, reporting live. Back to you in the newsroom.”
