26 Hours | 300 Words | 1 Globetrotting Prompt
Please welcome our judge, paranormal romance author, Siobhan Muir. I’ve coaxed her away from military research and polishing her upcoming book, The Navy’s Ghost, to join us today.
About Race the Date:
The challenge runs for 26 hours, from 0500 EST on Monday until 0700 EST on Tuesday.
Prompts are inspired by the different time zones.
Minimum word count is 100 words, maximum is 300 words.
Include your word count (mandatory) and Twitter handle (recommended).
Generally speaking, a winners blog will be posted by Wednesday evening (EST).
Race the Date awards an overall Winner and up to three Honorable Mentions.
Why 26 hours? Barring daylights savings time tomfoolery, the challenge is set to begin when UTC+14 (the first time zone to roll into any given day) begins a new day and ends when the last time zone, UTC-12, begins that same date.
This week’s globetrotting prompt is inspired by UTC+12:

The Prompt: a risky game
