Master of Her Craft -Uncharted – Six Sentence Stories

Carefully and meticulously, she cut and fused and cauterized img_0390every nerve, every sinew, every piece of tissue until they resembled the model of perfection she’d envisioned.

She hadn’t even broken a sweat this time, her technique was nearing perfection, she was so close to revealing her work to the world, perhaps one more and she would be ready.

Confident but cautious, she left her secluded studio beneath the cover of night to procure one last specimen.

        • Oh, I didn’t think you were 😊 I just find it fascinating what sorts of things lurk inside of us, this is only my third attempt at writing any sort of fiction, each time something a little dark or eerie comes out, maybe I should try an actual scary story!

          • You’re so right, it IS fascinating what lurks inside us writers–I’m often surprised at what falls out on the page, the occasional bit of brilliance that makes me go, “wow, did I write that??” I think writing is the best place–certainly the safest–to let out whatever is dark 🙂 I’d be curious to see what you write if you’re actually going for a scary story–so keep me posted!
