Leaving It Behind (#FrightFest2016 SILVER wi...
With creatures roaming the streets, a girl is trapped in her house, alone. With her thoughts. Sometimes facing your inner demons is just as daunting as the monsters outside.
(Contains no gore, flesh-rending, or other gross-out things. Mostly a thriller.)
Big thanks to @summerssolitude for finding the original image for me!
I'm proud to say I got a sweet Silver award in @FinnyH's FrightFest2016! Here's what he and a special judge had to say about it:
FINN H. ARLETT:
The author's character beams bright throughout, giving a touch of humour to a "flesh-eater" classic. An experimental piece with a mix of first and second person that also touches on more than just the horror genre.
L. L. SANDERS (LLSanders):
The first paragraph of Leaving It Behind sets the tone of this unique take on zombie horror. With its subtle hints of humor mixed with full-on horror, and its underlying theme of all-powerful lessons in love, this experimental short pays off!
Great writing, edge-of-your-seat scenes and suspense, and a protagonist whose personality shines through every paragraph. This story is engaging from the start to the surprising & satisfactory ending.
This story definitely deserves a spot amongst the #FrightFest2016 winners.
