Writing Excerpt 3/8 '16
Warning: the excerpt is not for the faint of heart. Allusions to serious violence and the like...
Nothing too extravagant tonight, but wanted to put in a little excerpt like Shelle's been doing. This is kinda a random scene just so that I could get to writing something (instead of doing prep work). I kinda think that the scene I just wrote (including this clip) might be the opening to the book. If so, I'll need to do that trick that some authors do - bouncing forward and backward in time through flashbacks and the like. (Think Pulp Fiction.)
I have to get the fuck out of here.
I stand on shaky legs and stumble over to the industrial sink. I turn on the water and start to scrub the gore from my hands. Next, I splash the icy liquid over my face to try to help me focus. As the water drains away I see that my face too must have been covered in blood.
My t-shirt is in tatters. There’s more holes than material. What little material there is, is stained dark red. Is this my blood? If it’s not, whose is it?
Once the rest of the Diablos hear about this, they will hunt me down and kill me. Slowly.
I scrub faster.
I pull off the t-shirt and go to my bag. I have another t-shirt, but it stinks to high hell. I’ve rinsed it a bunch of times, but it needs to actually be washed. Fuck it, I think as I pull it on - it’s not covered in blood.
(Edited to fix a couple of painfully obvious errors.)
