Altered Words - Fixed as Death
It's time for another Altered Words post! This time, I "found" a poem in a literary classic - Bram Stoker's Dracula! What is Altered Words all about, anyway? In case you missed my first post, Altered Words is my take on "found fiction", where I take a story, poem, or other literary work and try to "find" a story within by simply crossing out the words I do not want to include in my piece. ============================================= Found in Dracula by Bram Stoker Pg. 376 All was dark and silent. Black shadows thrown by the moonlight, full of mystery. Not a thing seemed to be stirring, all grim and fixed as death. White mist creeping over me, mist spreading, stealing up to the windows, my waking thoughts merged in dreams. =========================================== What did you think of FIXED AS DEATH? Share your thoughts below! And hey! If you have a copy of Dracula, I'd LOVE it if you tried your hand at "finding" your own story within! Try the same page I found my story on, or choose your own. And don't forget to share it in the comments! Until next time..... ~M~
