So this is part three to a scary story and where the rubber meets the road so to speak.

Part I is here:

Part II is there:

Many thanks to Jemima Pett and Kim Blades for the setup.


This is my continuation to a chain story (and this week’s Chuck Wendig Challenge). And yes, I don’t write much horror, can’t you tell?

Here’s where you can find part I:


This week’s challenge, write part 1 (of 3) of a spooky story. So this is all atmosphere and set-up for what’s to come. Not too scary, yet, but hopefully enough meat on the bones for someone to come along and flesh it out.


Right, so if week one was to write the first part, and week two is to write the second part, guess what this week is?

Poorerdick started it. Alice Keyes continued it. I’m the setup man for the closer. This was a different kind of piece for me to work with, and I’m not entirely sure I did it justice. I felt there needed to be more conflict somehow, some indecision to set up the meaningful choice. Anyway, I am including both Part 1 and 2 here as well, but my piece kicks up with 3. I will note that the first author included some additional background material on how the story might go. I chose to not read it, and see where pantsing got me. All errors for part three remain my own.

I do so hope someone takes it home.


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.)
