Day 4: The Serial Killer
“Today, write about a loss. The twist: make this the first post in a three-post series.”
I’ve removed this post from public view for two reasons. First, I don’t like to put my fiction on display while it’s in draft stage, and “Rosemary” was a (very) first draft. When I started writing it, several hours before posting, I didn’t know how the story would turn out. I still don’t. If I were to continue, what’s written here might not even make it into the final version.
Second, most editors won’t accept for publication anything that’s appeared on the Internet. So if I finished the story, there would be no market for it.
A professor told me years ago not to put too much energy into an exercise. Writing 101 is worthwhile, but it is an exercise. So I shall tweak the rules to fit my needs. If “Rosemary” returns, and anyone wants to read, I’ll let you know where to find her.
