We’re in the first week of Rule of Three! Thanks go out to all the participants who posted such intriguing first episodes for their stories. I’m impressed with the entries I’ve been visiting. Judging won’t be easy at all.
Time for the 2nd prompt of the Rule of Three:
Choose ONE OR MORE from the following:
Someone is killed or almost killed.
One of the characters is revealed to be not who he or she is.
A relationship becomes complicated.
A character lies to another on an important matter.
Here’s how to score maximum points during judging rounds:
The second episode of your #REN3 is to be scheduled ANY TIME between (12.01 am) 12 October and 13 October, (11.59pm)-GMT. (Late and early posts will deduct points during judging rounds.)
The Word Limit is still between 500-600.( Exceeding this will deduct points during judging rounds.)
There will be THREE main characters from the first episode: and the main POV/highlighted character in your second episode would be someone other than the one highlighted in your first episode. (More than 3 main characters will deduct points during judging rounds, as will one character highlighted throughout the 4 episodes.)
Any genre and time period is okay for your story, but the setting must be Renaissance. (Change in setting will deduct points during judging rounds.)
Please mention the prompt you followed for the story. (Not following any of the prompts for the week would deduct points during judging rounds).
