Six Sentence Sunday April 15, 2012

Wow! Where'd that week go.  Hard to believe it's mid-April already.  I understand that some folks are just now doing the IRS dance again.  Let's take our minds off that and READ:  Here are six sentences from my short story CHEMS.  It's on Amazon.


CHEMS

 a zombiefied short story

by Ann Swann


He was curled up like a comma in a pile of old feed sacks.


The year was 1974 and I was in the eighth grade.  I was in a hurry, running late as usual, and I had just opened the hen house to let my flock out for the day when I looked across the packed-earth yard and noticed the toolshed door wasn’t completely closed.  Since I was the one responsible for shutting things up in the evening, I knew that door was closed and latched the night before.
            I tiptoed up and tried to see inside through the crack—had my eye pressed to it just like that Tell-Tale Heart guy we’d read about in English—but I couldn’t see anything except that pile of old sacks.
            Then they moved.  


That's it for today!  See ya next Sunday.  If you would like to participate in Six Sentence Sunday, simply go to http://www.sixsunday.com/

  1. You have a way of putting the reader directly at the scene. I downloaded CHEMS, so now I'll have to see what he sees.
