Dead End (SIGNS; A to Z Challenge)


Dead EndHaunting did not come with a manual. That had infuriated Ana after she became aware of her new “life.” It  turned to anger, which became wearisome, and then settled into a heightened state of constantly being chagrined.

Stumbling upon things: her best friend (Di) and her husband (Tim) “comforting” each other just a day after the funeral; her son, being that “mean  bastard” she had heard but never wanted to believe; friends and relatives who stopped calling Tim less than a week after she was “gone.”

This cul-de-sac needed a good haunting. Ana was determined to give it her all.


For the April 2014 A to Z Blog Challenge, you will find a story a day (except Sundays) from me. A to Z: Staring with A on Tuesday, April 1st and ending with Z on Wednesday, April 30th.

Signs is my theme for this year’s outing. Road signs, building signs, warning signs…Signs alert us to a multitude of messages. My plan is to use the alphabet through Signage, but not to stick to what the sign was originally intended to convey. So, the genre of story writing, and styles, of the posts will vary as my mood and interpretation sees fit. Possibly a poem or two. We’ll see.

I’m also trying something more of a challenge: each post will be a Drabble. A Drabble is 100 Words Exactly.

Hope you enjoy the stories.
