The writing prompt for May is:

Write a scene/story about your favorite amateur sleuth/detective and describe why. The story does not have to be about a book character. Use your imagination. Bring your completed scene/story (500-750 words) to the meeting and be prepared to read it aloud (or ask someone to do it for you if you’re shy).

See you on Saturday!
