Friday Fictioneers: People Watching

People Watching


People watching was my pastime. It gave me ideas. I was here every day. Just people watching. Understanding their habits. Understanding their quirks. And I wrote it all down for my book. They say people watching enriches that kind of thing.

And one day when they least expect it this shark comes to life and eats them all up. Every little bit bringing their sad, repetitive lives to what I feel is a timely end. But this is just a snack and I’ve got other food establishments in my sights. My bestselling autobiography will be delicious.

    He or she may have spent a bit too much time watching and somewhat too little interacting. They’ve gone barking mad

  2. Dear Lisa,

    This takes people watching to a new grisly level. Nicely done.

    Clever spin with your storytelling predator.

  4. Iain Kelly says:

    So long as it’s only in the stories that they do this! 😉

  5. gahlearner says:

    That sounds rather vengeful. Depending on the people she watches this could become a bestseller. 🙂

    I’ll bet the watcher was glad he wasn’t there when everyone else got eaten!

  7. Oh my goodness. It doesn’t sound like an innocent story at all. Well done, Lisa. 🙂 — Suzanne
