This week’s challenge, to finish a story that someone started, and someone else wrote the middle part two. I didn’t know either of the people before this, but damn if this couldn’t have been about 1000 words longer. As it is, I’m over my limit by 120 words and I still don’t feel as if it ended conclusively enough. Any fault with the ending is mine and mine alone. The first part was written by Sam Phillips, and the second part by Christopher. The *** breaks up the parts, and I thought I’d put the whole shebang up for convenience sake.

Darkness Concealed: A review. 3 of 5 stars

Darkness Concealed

About the Book: 

50 years ago, the dawn did not come. Again. Everyone in Telthan knew it would happen. Monsters roamed the land, killing virtually everyone in their path, laying waste to anything in their way. Only a precious few survived to rebuild the wreckage of civilization, just like last time. No one questions the Darkening. Not even the children.

That is, until four strangers set off in search of answers, braving a forbidden city, a forgotten library, and foreboding mountains for the truth that has to exist. But the past does not give up its secrets easily, and the truth is far darker than the blackest night.

So this week’s Chuck Wending Challenge is a continuation from last week’s. I decided to take on the slightly Southern Gothic start that darkvirtue posted and added my 500 words to it. I hope he doesn’t mind too much me playing with his toys. (Sadly, no one has picked mine up yet. Sniff.)

So this week’s CW Challenge was to write a 500 word piece that someone else could then come along and finish. It’s supposed to only be the beginning of a story, and there was no more guidance other than that. Here’s what I came up with, a short little superhero-esque piece.

P.S. If you do take this on as the second part of the challenge, be sure to let me know in the comments.

“The Hissing Widow”

This week’s Chuck Wendig challenge. I feel like this is a decidedly slow burn of a story, but I’m pretty happy with how it came out. Way more of a burgeoning romance tale than I think I intended.
