Week 59 100 Word Count Challenge- http://jfb57.wordpress.com/2012/09/23/100-word-challenge-for-grown-ups-week59/

Picture prompt-

 

 

The cool breeze steadied his thoughts and the silence was calming. Warm beads of sweat dripped from his forehead as the hour climb took any last remaining energy he had left. Sitting on the edge of the world gathering back his strength, he wondered if he was the only survivor.  Hours passed and Tom decided to think of a plan. It didn’t take long before the flashbacks started. Even the pretty scenery did not comfort Tom- visions of the dead rising and the moans of the victims made him shake.  He let out a shout, echoing from the cliffs below.

    Really like the way you took this could-have-been quiet moment and shaped a little horror story out of it. Nicely done!

  2. We all see that he is a solitary figure but you’ve taken it to the extreme whereby he may be the only one left in the world. Cant’ get more solitary than that – scary.

  3. Super write on the image from the challenge. I could feel his exhaustion in your words.
    Well done …!!!
    The entry deadline passed for me but I had written it so I decided I would post on my blog. I would love to have you take a look.
    Thanks …
