Tweet Challenge: A New Normal


I'm jumping into this week's Red Writing Hood prompt challenge, which was write a story of your choice. The catch? Write it as a tweet. Use only 140 characters – including spaces.






"A New Normal"

At first they scare her. But time breeds familiarity. By the time she’s 18, even the most gruesome spirits are merely part of the landscape.

I like the subject matter. But I can't help typing: she sees dead people. Sorry about that. Cool take on the prompt.

Understandable. It's a meme.

"and this is one of the best ones I've read all day"

Well, thank you. :) I'm glad you enjoyed it.
