#Writespiration #132 52 WEEKS IN 52 WORDS WEEK 37 – 52 Word Sequel @sacha_black

Sacha’s back with another #Writespiration prompt.

Your challenge is to write your story using the weekly theme/prompt and write it in just 52 words…. EXACTLY, no more, no less.

This week, I want you to look at the ending of the last book you read and write the first 52 words of a sequel.

I just finished Because I Was Lonely by Hayley Mitchell.

Image result for because I was lonely

It’s a brilliantly written, disturbing tale of a mum, Rachel,  who is depressed and finds an old friend, Adam, on Facebook. The relationship that develops takes on stalker-like tendencies and it is encouraged while Adam is having his own issues with his wife, Julia.

Once his real life settles, he hopes her own life with her husband David is finding a path to happiness too, and that they can forget their brief but intense online relationship, but it seems Hayley has other thoughts at the end of the story… my sequel begins like this…

The doorbell. Adam tensed. Julia was home.
What if it was her?
Rachel had seemed unhinged in that last message, talking of finding him.
He saw the gas man leave, and filled with relief.
The phone rang. That feeling of tension mounted.
Then his Facebook Message notification lit up on his PC…

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
