Nestled along the banks of an old twisting river, the quiet little town of Pleasantville seemed to lay untouched by the modern world.
Sitting off to itself on a side street on the edge of town was the old McNeil mansion, now just a hull of old weathered boards and not at all the place it was in its prime. Most folks in Pleasantville did their best to stay away from it, believing the ghost of Abner haunted it, the last McNeil to live there a century earlier. On some level, these beliefs seemed to be true. What else would cause an old rocker to creak back and forth on its own? The eerie sound was enough to make your hair stand up and prickles to run up and down your spine.
For those new to this, the rules are simple:
1) pick a project – a current Work in Progress, contracted work or even something readers can buy if you’re published
2) pick six sentences
3) post ‘em on Sunday
