Coming back to One Word Wednesday, the word today is decompose.
I was the first to find the body in the canal, but not the first to smell him. The household woke up to that smell, amplified by the summer heat, and assumed at first to be from an unfortunate animal. We never expected the animal to be a person instead, and certainly didn’t expect it to be someone we knew.
As a reminder, for One Word Wednesday visit http://oneword.com/, see the word for today, and start typing. You have 60 seconds to write without thinking.
The above comes from another idea I’ve been kicking around and considering writing as a TV script. It’s a bit darker than I would expect the show to be as a whole, but with a word like decompose one can imagine where my mind went.
