This Gauntlet should have been posted on Friday, 5 November. It wasn’t. But, it is posted now, so that’s something. Right?
The challenge is to expand on these two sentences:
I opened the door and picked up the package on the porch. Right away, I knew something was wrong.
Take this sentence and turn it into the first 250 or so words of a thrilling adventure story. Save your submission as a Word document with the file name Gauntlet 6 [Insert Your Name Here]. For example, my file would be Gauntlet 6 Mr Chance. Email all submissions to mchance at theregisschool dot org.
Submissions are due Thursday, 18 November, and I’ll post the submissions during our Thanksgiving holiday. I await your responses.
