This week I'm doing an excerpt using a writing prompt. I’m not good at this sort of thing, but here’s my try.
Here's the prompt:
I’d faced down bullies, wild animals, and even a burglar, but the face staring at me now instilled fear like I’d never known.
A disembodied head illuminated by a golden orb right below its chin floated in the doorway. I found my voice and screamed loud enough to be heard on the other side of the world. My breath came in gasps that quickly condensed in the icy air of my bedroom. Ignoring the weakness in my legs, I scrambled to my feet and ran for the window. It wasn’t that far to the ground.
