Well, here we are, entering our second week of writers_an0n.
I highly recommend reading Harry Potter and The Giddy Ghost, it is tres rockin'!
I guess it is time to think of another idea. But feel free to do whichever idea appeals to you!
There doesn't have to be any sort of doing them in order, or whatev, nah!

For myself, I will plan on writing 1,000 words using the idea. I think this is a good amount to have to muddle through if it is going nowhere. Also this is a good amount to get you into an idea, really loving it. Then if I want to write more, I can, and so can you!

Well this week's idea:

Remember the game called Clue? It was made into a movie as well. The premise for this week's idea is to:

Play a game of Clue with you friends or, download a computer game based on Clue
which seems to not work with Windows XP, yeearrgh, but, hey if you don't have Windows XP, go ahead!
So, anyway, Play a game with your friends, keep an outline of what happens as the detective (you) unravels the mystery, be sure to write an exciting climax, and a satisfying conclusion, two things the game cannot provide for you :P

Will you play Clue with me, my good friends? Help me create a mystery?

The Controversy over Guidant's Implantable Defibrillators
On October 4, 2001, Joshua Oukrop, a Minnesota teenager with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and a high risk of sudden death from ventricular fibrillation, received an implantable cardioverter–defibrillator (ICD). The device was a Ventak Prizm 2 DR Model 1861 manufactured by Guidant (Indianapolis). After it was implanted, Oukrop's physicians at the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation checked it every three months (most recently on January 31, 2005) and found no problems. . . .

On March 14, 2005, Oukrop, then a 21-year-old college student, collapsed and died in a remote area of southeastern Utah during a spring-break bicycling trip with his girlfriend.1,2 . . .

Mr. Weasley out down his copy of the Daily Prophet and sighed greatly. He knew it was going to be another busy week with the threat of Lord Voldemort so close at hand. Death Eaters were not the only people causing all of this trouble, though they had a hand in it. People were wandering round all over the place with the Imperious curse cast upon them, doing something bad enough to catch the Ministry's eye, to lead them astray.
He rubbed his eyes wearily, his brow furrowed. He had plenty of things on his mind without even thinking of Lord Vol-he-who-must-not-be-named. Ron, his poor boy Ron. He was gone out of his family's life for now, maybe for good, and they all knew it. He had left to save the world with his friends Hermione and Harry Potter.
But Mr. Weasley knew he had a job to do, he cold not shirk his responsibilities. And neither could Ron. No matter how young and innocent and inexperienced he might be. He must be responsible.
At least Ginny had stayed, she was the only one left at home now, what with Fred and George living and running their joke shop (in the middle of all this!). Percy rejecting his family to work for the ministry, Bill getting married, and Charlie, Charlie. . .
Mr. Weasley shook his head; he didn't want to think about that now. Maybe not ever.
Ginny was a force of nature. She had decided to get her degree despite the fact that Hogwarts was on its last legs.
Talk of the school closing was imminent, it didn't look good. Some teachers were applying to teach at the next closest school. There was a rumor that the rest were banding together to form a private school of wizardry for the very elite. Where would the funding for this come from? Mr. Weasley thought he knew the answer to that, was quite sure actually. And that answer was not settling in the least.
Lord, No-Name had an army of adult wizards with much experience, both with spells, and with cruelty. Everyone knew that Harry Potter must fight L-No-Name, but how could he fight him, and all the other evils in this world? No-Name must be destroyed. There was a saying "Innocents never know how difficult it is to murder". And that is the truth. How can Harry Potter destroy Vol-No-Name when he knows nothing of killing? Hermione? Ron? How many other countless children will lose their innocence in these horrible times? How many adults?
