And so I continue with my serial killer themed 5 sentence fiction. For those stumbling upon my writing for the first time, under the category ‘ Writing’, you will find the two short pieces that were written in conjuction with the piece below. Those short stories are 5 sentence fiction ‘ accident’ and ‘ charmed’.
Word Prompt- Desolate
I used to stare at my wall calendar…what a barren and desolate scene that once was, an endless blank canvas of days, which turned into weeks, then months of sheer nothingness.
But that description of a wall calendar is not mine, I quote it from the novel ‘Notes on a Scandal’ by Zoe Heller, a description I related to and which prompted me to act, to plan each minute, each precious hour of each and every day.
Oh if you could see my wall calendar now…and the things I have planned!
The Blonde who goes walking with her chocolate labrador each morning, I ‘ve pencilled her in for next month ( I’m thinking Tuesday the 5th)
As for this month, well there is just so much planning and preparation for the task ahead, I look at my wall calendar now and am positively exhausted by the endless list of daily tasks I have set myself…but I would not have it any other way.
