Keys | Shotgun Honey

First published on Shotgun Honey 12 July 2016.  To jump to the story, click here.

First and foremost, thanks to Editor Ron Earl Phillips for hosting and creating such a cool crime fiction site, Shotgun Honey.  I’ve spent hours looking through the archives and reading stories there, and it’s like a constant stream of scenes and stories from the best crime shows.

So, I can’t believe I wrote a crime fiction story, but I did.  Thanks go to my flash fiction workshop clan, The Fishtank, for their inspiration to write a backwards narrative.

Writing a backwards narrative is strange — you really have to keep track of the cause and effect — and I hope you enjoy reading this backwards tale full of clues and keys until, I hope, you arrive at the surprising real start to the story.

My method depended on nobody letting a breeze in by opening a door. Shee-ooo it’s not easy.

I hope you enjoy the story, and while you’re over at Shotgun Honey, take a look around and enjoy a full visit.  Link to my story, “Keys,” here.

  1. Oh, boy. I’m blushing. I think that was one of my prompts. But, of course, that’s not why the story’s so good.
