Advice to Horror Girl Victims
24th Nov 2011 in Writing
open your mouth wide wider
make sure they can hear that scream
all the way to the back of the cinema. aim
to deafen the projectionist.
look behind you when you run up to the attic
or down to the basement or whichever way
leads to snapping jaws. turn to the camera so your hair
flips just right. pull
your dress tight so your tits bounce.
leave a trail of potential weapons
dropped from your shaking hands.
you must always make it easy for him to follow.
later there will be a girl who will grab a weapon
and not let go. but this is only the third scene. you
are axe-fodder. you should not have
fucked smoked cursed filled the shape of a woman.
next time only sign on if your character has a boy’s name.
