Carolyn – “Keeping Watch” An Apocalyptic Thriller in Parts

Welcome to my post-apocalyptic page.  Here you will find Carolyn, a tough city woman who is learning to live in a world demolished by man’s interference.  A viral plague has ravaged the earth.  Carolyn is only one person in one city, but we get to see the entire disaster slowly through her senses.  I originally wrote this as just a 100 word short for Friday Fictioneers.  Then, I continued it to Lillie McFerrin’s Five Sentence Fiction, and on into Flash Friday, another prompt-driven practice in writing.

Since these starts, I have begun a multi-part story in this blog.  But, I am falling a bit for Carolyn and her story.  I am looking down the road at the possibility of a full-blown book or novella.  Whatever happens, this is the place to find all of the stories I have put together in this blog.

*Update – Carolyn and her tale have found their way into a novella and have been included in my collection of horror short stories on Kindle.  Look to the left column and down to see the cover.  Click on it to go to the link.

*I would suggest skipping to the second part down below which is the longer version and is divided into 11 parts.  It is more easily readable.

Please enjoy and feel free to comment and/or suggest.  I am not greedy; you are welcome to fall for Carolyn, too!
