Weekend Writing Warriors – Time Bubble Blues 8

Yikes! First off, apologies to all my followers who got a ‘coming soon’ email or caught the live show. I lost track and assumed that I’d actually filled in this scheduled placeholder post. 😦 But I’ve got another eight sentence snippet of ‘Time Bubble Blues’ for Weekend Writing Warriors and you. Jack still needs to find a way out of his TimeBubble room.


First snippet Second snippet Third snippet Fourth snippet Fifth snippet Sixth snippet Seventh snippet

Sitting and thinking about the past was wasting time, and he didn’t have much time. Jack wasn’t sure how much air he had in the bubble, but it couldn’t be too much, since the plan had been that it would get refreshed while he was off at Melissa’s birthday party. He picked the wall closest to the door, and managed to pry a length of the wood panel off it, but behind there was riveted steel. He didn’t have any tools which could melt through that.

There had to be another way. He looked around the room and spotted the ventilation duct high up on the wall, just a few inches away from the ceiling. First he had to push the bed over, sit down for a few minutes to catch his breath, and climb up on top of the bed to reach the grate. Then some quick screwdriver work and the grate was sitting on the carpet, and Jack shone a flashlight down the duct, peering inside.

    The whole premise is so interesting and well thought out, I’m eager to see how the story continues.


  2. Interesting snippet. My first stop here, but I’m curious to see where this goes, so I’ll be back for more!


  3. It’s always the air ducts LOL! I’m loving this story, want tons more details on the premise! Excellent excerpt!


  4. Ventilation duct plus he’s worrying about the air? If it’s a closed system, he won’t get far.


  5. Very interesting. I’m curious to see where it’s going.

    Wonder if he can pull it off! Looking forward to the next instalment.


  7. You’ve certainly build suspense here! But I am with Sueann, wondering how he can be concerned about air and then thinking he can escape through an air duct? There must be more here than I am seeing.


  8. Why do I see this ending badly?
