Murder by ink

I couldn’t believe it! He was actually going to kill me. Every drop of ink he put on paper brought me closer to my death, and I had no control over it. He was making a huge mistake. I wished I could stop him from contemplating my murder. But, no matter how I shouted, he just kept on writing, word after gruesome word. I’d thought I’d be the main character in his next novel, but, apparently, I’d been nothing but a few sentences. He was ending my existence without second thought—painting a bloody picture with deliberate words. Erratic author!

  1. Dear Ofelia,

    I’m not sure but I think a welcome to Friday Fictioneers is in order. It’s only fair to warn you that it’s habit forming. 😉
    I enjoyed your imaginative tale and its unusual POV. Have you seen Stranger than Fiction with Will Farrell?

    At any rate well done. I look forward to reading more from you.




      1. I’m not a huge Will Farrell fan but I think every writer should see this movie for the shear fun of it. It’s about a novel character who finds out the author is going to off him.


      2. Oh, I see why you wondered. No, haven’t seen it, but I read a flash a year or two ago by Havan Fellow called Writing is a Socially Acceptable Form of Schizophrenia. In that characters from different WIPs tried to convince the author to write their story. I loved that one!
