A Paragraph Turned In

Well my assignment from last week was to turn in a paragraph from a piece of work I would submit for our last assignment...could be fiction or non-fiction. The dilema I ran into was this...I have many ideas for great books or movies, etc. I am in an online class with many different people that are on different levels. There is a guy in class that has had a book published already. There is a woman in class that has finished and book and turned it into several publishers. So my thinking was...don't use your best idea. What if someone that has more connections were to take my idea and use it as their own? So I used something that I came up with when I was living in Colorado several years ago...suspense/thrilled type thing. Here is what I submitted...

"Between the Cracks"

Have you ever had the feeling that someone might be watching you? I have had that feeling ever since moving into this house. My friends and family all told me I was just being paranoid. They said that living alone for the first time causes jitters for a while until you get used to the new house. But it wasn’t like that…it wasn’t new house sounds that scared me. I could feel someone watching me. I could feel eyes crawling all over my skin while I was outside watering the lawn, when I was in the kitchen cooking dinner and as I hauled my trash out to the curb every Monday. Who would have thought that simply buying a house could almost kill you?
