Since I currently have a few small works posted to Wattpad, I am going to start there with my snippets and give you all a peek at those before moving onto sharing bits and pieces of my current WiP novel.
This one comes from the same small, short horror piece I have posted to Wattpad titled The Black Lake. I’m skipping ahead a couple of lines from where I left off last week. Background bit, this snippet is from a dream. (Some sentences may have been creatively punctuated to fit the 10 sentence limit.)
It was a body.
The man dragged the lifeless body along the cracked wood of the docks, long blonde hair snagging on splinters and broken wood. A broken face with eyes filled with terror stared up into the moonlight sky in horror, forever frozen in a silent scream; makeup and lipstick looked like it smeared down her face from tears, mixing with the blood that remained plastered on her face. Blood from her arms and face left streaks on the wood that shone a deep red in the moonlight. Her clothes were torn and bloodied; her shirt was hanging off the side of her body almost ripped in half and exposing her soft underbelly that was ridden with deep slashes and cuts. Blood was splattered over her clothes but you could still tell that they were once designer jeans and an expensive green top. Her jeans looked like they had been made with the now-in-style holes and cuts, but they were far more disproportioned by new rips and tears. One of her high heeled boots was missing off her left foot as she was dragged by the man. Once she was a living human being, but now she was nothing more than dead weight being dragged to her watery grave.
I couldn’t take my eyes off the silent scream of terror that was so plainly etched into every detail of her face; her eyes were wild with fear showing more of the whites than normal, and her features were twisted in brutal agony.
If you want to read the whole story, it is available to read on Wattpad! I love to hear any and all feedback on my work as well.
