Alright folks. This is a competition.
You’ve got three–and only three–sentences to write the most horrifying, gore-soaked scene you can possibly imagine. Run-on sentences are fine, but try not to go overboard. We all have to be able to read it.
Be sure to start by rating the scene posted above yours on a scale of 1 to 10.
