Okay, we have a new challenge for you all.  

The idea is that in September you will all write your take on the same plot outline.  We will decide which plot to use from those you send to me.  Please note that other writers are free to use these plots AFTER the September challenge, so don't give away anything you want to keep and use.  The object is that we see how we all do on the same plot, and also on a challenge where we have plenty of time to edit and mull.

You have until the end of April to vote on the four plots below.  You will then have until September to mull on your plots and write your challenge story for September.  The poll won't let me put the full pitch in, so I've posted them in dull below.

So, get voting on your favourite plot, cos you're gonna have to write it up in September!

1.  Silverkelpie - A stranger appears in town and starts to to spread stories about the local school teacher's colourful past.  When they boys catch the teacher sneaking out of town in the dead of night they start to think there might be some truth in the stories.  They soon find out that they are not the only people with criminal records who are looking for the teacher.

2.  Stepha3nie - A story completely told only through written/printed media: newspapers, telegrams, letters, notes, tickets, etc.  Heyes and Kid have missed a meeting with a friend who, getting worried, tries to find out why. They had to detour to clear their names of another crime pinned on them. Unbeknownst to the boys, the messages they sent to their friend and to Lom never reached their destinations. On hearing of their supposed “relapse”, which neither Lom, nor the friend believe, the friend decides to (help) clear the boys’ name(s). The well-meant interference leads to complications, and might affect the bid for amnesty.  

3.  Riders 57 - Heyes and Curry are hired by a woman to run a small herd of cows from her family's ranch to another ranch 200 miles away for breeding purposes, then to return the cows.  The woman's family also owns the local bank.  While the ex-outlaws are on the trail the bank is robbed, supposedly by Hannibal Heyes & Kid Curry.  Our ex-outlaws have the perfect alibi, but can they clear their names without revealing their identities?

4.  HannaHeyes - A down and out girl cleaning in a saloon recognize Heyes and Curry when they come in and remembers that it was because of them robbing her father's bank, that she is where she is today. Her father committed suicide after the robbery under the stress and she was left to fend for herself. Now she wants her revenge, will do anything to get it, and decides to try to come in between Heyes and Curry, hopefully making one shoot the other, because it would be easier for her to turn them in for the reward.

We've only had 5 votes on the elevator pitch, so I will extend the voting period until the story challenge has finished, so this is a reminder to vote on the elevator pitch when you vote on the story challenge.

Well, the votes are inn and counted and HannaHeyes pitch is the winner.  This is the story you will be asked to write in September - the first time you will have a story challenge with lots of warning to work out a plot.  I look forward to the various takes on the prompt as everyone puts their own spin on it.
