Your Turn (Unreliable Narrator)

Image that you are being interrogated by the police. The detective who is asking you questions suspects that you are guilty of muder; after all, you were caught at the scene of the crime, with a bloody knife in your hand.

Explain to the police why you are actually innocent. At the same time, drop enough hints so that the reader of your story can figure out that you are probably guilty.

In other words, tell a story from the point of view of an unreliable narrator.

Instruction for the Quiz

Tell a (false) story that explains what you were doing at the scene of the crime. Make your story believable—but not too believable! (Variations of the given scenario are acceptable).
