#8Sunday Weekend Writing Warriors Excerpt #46

The Weekend Writing Warriors is an awesome site that allows writers to share their 8 to 10 sentence excerpts, published or unpublished, to the blogosphere. If you’d like to join or would like to read wonderful talent, please visit the WeWriWa website on Sunday, 4/26 http://wewriwa.blogspot.com.

I’m sharing my work-in-progress of a serial killer torturing a college campus with urban legends.

Here’s my excerpt:

No one was safe…

Sweeney Todd hovered over Elena’s body. She looked so peaceful. He took a deep breath, upset with himself for getting distracted, then he made his way back over to the duffel bag. He slowly unzipped it. The smell of death and decay assaulted his nostrils. He held his nose, suppressing the urge to gag. 

He picked up Savannah’s bloated dead body from the bag; her body had been stuffed in there like a broken rag doll. He walked over to Savannah’s bed and lay her on top of it, then he pulled the covers over her like a sleeping bag. He made sure the covers only revealed her face.

Keep smiling,

  1. Oh, I would freak out if I woke up and saw that. I don’t think I’d ever recover. Definitely the stuff of nightmares.

    • Yeah, absolutely. It’s creepy just thinking of someone sneaking into your room while you’re asleep, let alone, dropping off a dead body!

      Keep smiling,

    • Hi, Linda. I don’t think you’ve been reading from the beginning. The scoop–this guy is crazy. He thinks killing people with urban legends will make him a famous, best-selling author.

      Keep smiling,

  2. Wow–we already know he’s criminally insane, but still, we persist analyzing his behavior–a murderous train wreck we can’t turn away from. I guess we all collect things. Thank heavens that for all but the teeny-tiny-very teeny few, it’s not murder victims. Your writing is fabulous, Yawatta!

    • Thanks, Teresa. You complimenting my writing means a lot to me. I collect notebooks and sketchbooks. Too bad he can’t be normal lol

      Keep smiling,
