Today Swanwick writer, Jules Hartnett, returns to ‘Patricia’s Pen’ with ‘One Hundred Words’.
That’s all it took, one hundred words. Well, actually, there were ninety-eight – I counted. Ninety-eight. But it was the last five that did it.

He yelled, ‘And I’m not coming back!’
His last five words.

Thank you for sharing this with us, Jules. I for one think Jules’ story is fabulous. What do you think?
