Connover lingered by Greg’s headstone. Why did he kill himself?
What didn’t his co-worker have that Connover hadn’t wanted first? The promotion, the new BMW, Emily.
Many times he’d imagined Greg’s death, but when he heard Greg boast of his exploits with the girl of his dreams, it was himself he wished dead. Now this.
Maybe it isn’t a coincidence, said a wicked thought. Maybe there was a reason that Greg got what you wished for yourself. Maybe you were the reason. Maybe you could test it somehow.
How? thought Connover.
Want something specific. Being clear is essential. To test this, you’ll need proof.
The other day, I announced a new Flash Fiction Challenge, but I didn’t give you any examples. Consider this post the remedy for that wrong. Below you will find my 50 word character introductions to the main characters of my last three 3-Day Novel entries plus one that I will be writing soon.
If you haven’t done so already, check out the challenge and enter your own 50 word character description!
