JESSICA – Part One

Hannah:

Jessica Week is here!! You’ve probably always wondered–WHO IS JESSICA B. BELL? Now’s your chance to find out!

“She’s gone,” I cried, running carelessly up the creaky basement stairs. If I wasn’t careful, I could trip and break my neck.

“Who?” Penny asked. My niece had been ignoring my frantic behaviour for the past half hour, but she finally broke her silence.

“Jessica,” I said. “She’s just… gone.”

There are rumours that I keep a writer trapped in my basement, chained to a chair, writing stories by candlelight in her own blood on dirty yellowed parchment, but I assure you, those rumours are exaggerations, darlings. Jessica is and always was here of her own free will. She’s a strange one, I’ll give you that, but I didn’t abuse her. You have to believe me.

“Where would she go?” Penny wondered. “I mean, does she have any family, or friends, or…”

I looked at Penny as if to ask what she was thinking, or rather, to remember who…

Hannah Sears vs. Jeyna Grace

“On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero”

Writing can often seem like a solitary pursuit, one of the reasons blogging can be so much fun. In the spirit of interaction, a fun new project run by Jonas Lee will be starting up next week. It’s called Write Club and much like Fight Club, it pits two people against each other, but in a battle of words rather than fists. Check out the schedule here. As you’ll see, my story will go live on Monday, September 29th. The stories are anonymous and the winners are decided by votes. So head on over on Monday and follow the Write Club blog to get all the stories for the upcoming matches. Free stories, step right up! Write Club is also looking for more combattants, if you’re so inclined!

Recommendations for the Masses

Is your Tuesday plagued by the sense that Monday is repeating itself? Are you looking for ways to avoid doing work/writing/planning a world takeover and inventing a shrinking ray? If you answered “yes!” to any of the previous questions, look no further.

CHUK is a serial story/novel about the Louisiana town of Bayou Bonhomme. There’s BBQ, cults, murders, mystery, and a veritable menagerie of monsters. Penned by Jessica B. Bell (the nefarious, nasty, and not-very-nice alter ego of Helena Hann-Basquiat), this tale is almost at a close–but there’s still time to catch up!

You think your day is bad? Sean Smithson’s probably had worse. He’s self-deprecating in the best of ways as he recounts various tales of woe and humiliation. He also has a book!

Ashley Alleyne also has plenty of stories of his embarrassment for your entertainment, along with general stories that are amusing, poignant, and honest. Jennie Saia (who is clever and funny and smart) likes him, and that’s endorsement enough for me.
