“Possessed of a Fierce Violence” is an extremely brief (and violent!) story, published last month at Page & Spine. It’s free to read here. (TW: violence, gore)
This story was written during the Story-a-Day May challenge. Sometimes I like to sit down with a first line, in this case…
Sing me the song of your soul, sweet maiden.
And just go from there. See where it takes me. This line took to me to a violent place, but managed–surprisingly–to imply a complete story.
Take a look and let me know what you think!
