Out and In!

Blogfest time bloggie friends! But this is short n sweet so please don’t go away! LOL!

I am to post the last sentence of one of my stories from 2010 and the beginning sentence of one of my new stories written in 2011 (further details of the fest found here).

The following is my entry:

********************************

“Now I am hungry,” the voice said as the green haze consumed him, “And I need to feed.”

Sidney Marshall loved the flicks but he never thought he’d fall for someone the spit of Barbara Stanwyk.

*******************************
Thanks to lovely Summer Ross of My Inner Fairy and happy birthday to you!

Charlie says: While you blogfest away, I stare at this handsome fellow staring at me!


Have a wassup Wednesday everyone!

Intriguing sentences Old kitty! Your last sentence seems like so much happened and makes me curious. From your first sentence I would love to read more! keep writing!

Kea said...

Okay, your first sentence (i.e. the last sentence from 2010) begs further exploration! Where is the rest of the story, have I missed a post or a link? Oh, you can't possibly leave us hanging like that. Unless it's horror--I don't read horror for anyone or anything. LOL.

And what's the scoop on the new story? Would this be a young Barbara look-alike or an older one? Enquiring minds want to know!

Wich is which? Just kidding!

YOU are such a sweetie.

Interesting combo. I love your writing projects. Painting with words.
Charlie, you are right! That is one handsome mancat!

The Words Crafter said...

LOL! This reads like the beginning of a very interesting story :)

Water Grrl said...

I posted my first efforts today, too!

Caren Gittleman said...

Charlie I love that big black spot on your back!!!

Look at you, you vain little guy!

xoxoxo

Theresa Milstein said...

I love both your sentences. The 2nd one is so lyrical - great opening. When will I get to read more of your writing?

Clarissa Draper said...

That's so cool. I love this blogfest. What a neat idea.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

LOL! Written this way it sounds like a Science Fiction story :)

I shall look for those exercise DVD's you recommended ...I need it during this snowy hibernation weather! Thanks!

fairyhedgehog said...

Now I want to read both those stories!

It sounds like a fun blogfest; I may even be tempted to join in.

Brigid said...

Great lines, Old Kitty, happy Wednesday!

Margo Benson said...

I'm laughing out loud...these are great. The first has me intrigued as to what went before and the second is a hoot! A guy at college had a lifelong crush om Barbara Stanwyck.

Brian said...

Happy blogfesting to you and happy handsoming to Charlie!!!

Ellie said...

I'm so happy - we get to read some of your awesome fiction!

The first is creepy and scarey, and I love it. The second made me laugh and I want to read more; it reminds me of my father. I'm not sure why!

Tell Charlie his face will freeze if he stares at himself too much. LOL.

Susan Fields said...

Who's that staring at you, Charlie? He sure is handsome!

Great lines, Old Kitty! What a fun blogfest - I love first lines and last lines both.

Manzanita said...

I guess I'm writing on yesterdays post. I love your dentist lingo. Smart talk!!!! Don't you like it when they ask you a question and your mouth is propped wide open and stuffed with cotton?

The pictures of Charlie are sweet where he's looking out the window and hiding in your closet. He's my cat since i only have Cody dog now. Thanks for sharing him.

Ah, so I've finally found Old Kitty! lol... I see your comments all the time. Glad to be a new follower finally.
Loved your sentences. :)

Elena Solodow said...

Creepy first one.

gideon 86 said...

What an ending... Leaves a lot to wonder what it's all about.

Barbara Stanwyck... now that's a name I haven't heard in years....

Francine Howarth said...

Hi,

1) to say I'm confused is neither here nor there, but the sentence intrigued!

2) hee hee, Barbara Stanwyck of the ye olde black & white movie era: nice touch to this sentence, and I bet it makes for a good read. ;)

best

Hart Johnson said...

Great lines. I particularly love that ending line!

laughingwolf said...

ok... that's way too neat ;)

Sammy and Andy said...

MOL......we love you and your handsome friend, Charlie!!!!!!!!

And we love your talented mum....we so enjoy your blog and are very thankful for your friendship. xxxxxxxxxxx

Justine Dell said...

That's a neat blog fest! That last line is pretty darn awesome. Now I want to know everything that comes before it. ;-)

notesfromnadir said...

I want to read about the green haze.

Charlie, I have to agree w/ you! :)

Hannah and Lucy said...

Oh Charlie that handsome fellow looking at you is YOU!!
You make all the lady cats hearts go pitter patter and they swoon or faint in a heap at your paws.

Erin Kane Spock said...

Knowing nothing of your projects, both sentences gave me a good feeling about both your story and your characters. Great post.

February Grace said...

Happy to have found your blog through the blogfest! Love the second line especially!

~bru

Wendy Tyler Ryan said...

Loved the Barbara Stanwyck line.

On another note: If anyone wants to mistake me for 18 - I'll be thrilled.

Lydia K said...

You were right--it was short and sweet. Great entry! I loved the two sentences together. Creepy and cool!

Madeleine said...

Good for Charlie, he's got his priorities right. Your last sentence makes me think of Walter Mitty for some reason or that film about Harvey the rabbit LOL! :O)

Kate said...

Carlie looks as gorgeous as ever. Happy New year.

Clarissa Draper said...

Well, all I can say is that I hope the green haze isn't going to eat Barbara Stanwyk.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Yep, that sure is a handsome fella looking back at you, Charlie.

Elaine AM Smith said...

Your ending has that zombie possession kind-of-haze ;) I wonder if your characters saw it coming.
It took just a few well chosen words to set this hook. A great blogfest post.

KcomeKarolina said...

Happy New Year!

Margo Kelly said...

Fun sentences! This is my first time to your blog! :-)

KarenMcG said...

Aww Charlie,

You handsome devil you! What a cute pose you've got going on there.

And Old Kitty has captured you perfectly.

Old Kitty, love your writing.

Ann said...

Louie does that too. Vanity I think it's called. I remember the green haze story....loved it...it was the one on the train. Right!?

Great opening line too.

Sash said...

Hey there,

nice writing you've got!

Last sentence: fascinating...what's the green haze? Feed on what? Quite ominous!

First sentence: perfect setup!

Sash.

soggibottom said...

Spot on Charlie :-) x x x

jo said...

I love the sentences, Who is looking at Charlie?

Kat_RN said...

Charlie is right, what a handsome fellow!

Bess Weatherby said...

Whoa! Love the first one!I don't get the second one -- but that's because I don't know who Barbara Stanwyck is! Will have to look her up . . . glad to "meet" you!

~ Bess

Danette said...

HI! Dropping in for the blogfest. Interesting ending!!! And the new sentence looks like the beginning of a beautiful relationship~ Barbara Stanwyck!

Liz Fichera said...

You had me at green haze! :-) A zombie apocalypse and mystery all at once. Very clever!

Nice to meet you!

Jamie Burch said...

I missed this one! Ooh..I am so intrigued and want to read them both. Fantastic entry!

Charlie's such a cutie...:)

Mysti said...

Love those sentences. The second sounds like a romance (makes me giddy), and the first sounds like it didn't end so well :)

Thanks for sharing!

Melissa Gill said...

Fabulous sentences. And what about that gorgeous cat. I'm in disbelief that he has another black spot that I've never noticed.

Donna Hole said...

I'm hungry now; and wouldn't mind watching an old western about now.

Thanks for the memories.

.......dhole

Damyanti said...

Absolutely fantastic. Would love to read both stories.

Simon Kewin said...

They both sound very intriguing! I read them as sentences from the same stort at first and found them even more intriguing!

The Golden Eagle said...

I love your first sentence--it definitely creeps me out!

The second makes me wonder what's behind his falling for her . . . great blogfest entry!

kelworthfiles said...

I loved the 'last sentence' particularly - it seems like a downbeat horror story where the monster wins - like the original ending to Little Shop of Horrors.
