Underneath: Bit

Bit is the fifth short story in Pills.

This one is out-and-out horror. I wanted to scare the shit out of people, and what better way than by spider-like bugs that crawl underneath the skin?

The beauty of writing short stories is that you can experiment with ideas. I loved the thought of the story being mainly dialogue. The cop and the suspect. There’s not a lot of descriptive work in there, just two blokes chatting.

Also, what if the suspect is lying? Read it with that in mind.

It was a quick write. I think that’s because of the dialogue. It’s something I enjoy writing, and think it’s one of my literary strengths. Perhaps I should’ve been a screenwriter or something.

Still time, I suppose.
