Story Saturday: Teddy Bear (Horror Poem)

 

I wrote this short poem for #StorySaturday (Twitter).  Today’s Teddy Bear Day and being me, I couldn’t write a nice and sweet poem-it had to be twisted and scary.

 

The girl hides under

the folds of the quilted cover

with her teddy bear

waiting

Murky shadows move

with an un-natural purpose

to claim and possess

wholly

When she opens her

eyes only to see the rising

sun, her bear on the

floor, frayed

She reaches for it and

embraces the toy to her wet face

and receives the scent

of death

2015 National Novel Writing Month

I’ve decided to use National Novel Writing Month to write the first draft of this book that I’ve re-committed myself to.  It would be a way to keep myself accountable and focused to getting the story down on paper.  Here is that story:
The Sparrow Watcher

The Sparrow Watcher

Supernatural, SciFi, Faith

Her idyllic childhood shattered by one event sending her on a journey that could decide the fate of mankind.

Anyone else planning on participating in NaNoWriMo this year?
