Sharing the #5SecondNovel for Wednesday, September 2, 2015, #167: the more I look at it ... the less I like it. http://www.5secondnovel.com/167-i-think-i-saw-it-move/
 
Oh no, you're seeing this all right: this week's 5 Second Novel with the twenty-third story for 2015, #167 - "I Think I Saw It Move" Read the full #5SecondNovel at http://www.5secondnovel.com/167-i-think-i-saw-it-move/

An excerpt: "Tired. It had been a grinding day for Elisa at work; two of the girls had called off and the rest of the staff had to pick up on cleaning their quota of hotel rooms. With dinner done, dishes done, she found herself sitting at the kitchen table, staring blankly at the floor. Her tired, grainy vision caught a spot on a tile that seemed to be blurring around the edges and moving to the left, and Elisa rubbed her eyes and wearily looked again. It HAD moved. No, it couldn't have. Yes, it did."  [ … ]

Sharing the #5SecondNovel for Wednesday, August 26, 2015, #166: uh, no, let's NOT get personal. http://www.5secondnovel.com/166-hypersensitive/
 
Oh, look -- it came back again: the 5 Second Novel returns with the twenty-secondth story for 2015, #166 - "Hypersensitive." Read the full #5SecondNovel at http://www.5secondnovel.com/166-hypersensitive/

An excerpt: "The narrow laundry room of the section eight housing project was deserted at 11:20 that night, and to Iris this was just fine. On her way she had bumped into the woman in #132 as the old lush stumbled out of her apartment clutching a bottle of Old English, and Iris was only now freeing herself from the woman's consciousness. Since childhood, at the touch of anyone, Iris would slide helplessly into the other person's mind, seeing and feeling their life …"  [ … ]

Re-sharing this week's 5 Second Novel for this cosmic Thursday morning, #165 - "The Voice of Many Waters." Read the full #5SecondNovel at http://www.5secondnovel.com/165-the-voice-of-many-waters/

An excerpt: "Joe wasn't answering his phone, and I couldn't stop worrying. There were six of us: me, Johnston, Perez, Hill, Morgan ... and of us, only Joseph Nguyen and I were left. It was a year ago I was at the Twelve Meter radio telescope on Kitt Peak, running the scans that SETI had scheduled, when I heard it at 1.530 gigahertz, toward Zeta Sagittarii. It was a chorus of voices, singing and chanting with such power I was brought to tears, as if my soul was opening in remembrance of my place in the whole of the cosmos." [ … ]
