Today's word count: 1152, plus a competitive analysis, on the still untitled pirate story.

Today's excerpt:

Anneliese forced herself to move. She and Gary ran across the deck to the door that led downward. She had her hand on the door when the earth shook. Dirt and wood chips sprayed her as she lost her footing, and then something slammed into her, knocking her to the deck.

Her ears rang and her teeth hurt. There was blood in her mouth. She could hear Gary screaming something over and over. Eric Eric Eric. Something heavy was on top of her.
