Revised Edition of The Lake Demon Chapter Seventy-Seven


Chapter Seventy-Seven
The medical examiner, Dr. Marsha Mitchell, arrived on the scene where the two bodies had drifted ashore. She was an attractive tall brunette woman twenty-eight years of age. Marsha had only been the local medical examiner for two years but she was already very professional in her approach to her job and was not easily distracted by unpleasant sights or odors, She took a very clinical approach as she started to assess the situation in front of her. Dr.Mitchell approached the two fragmented bodies in front of her and began her examination. There was very little flesh left on both the human and the animal carcasses before her. She had her two assistants take photos of the bodies at the spot where they had washed ashore. She then directed them to get the bodies ready for transport to her laboratory.
After about a ten minute ride to her office Marsha first contacted the dental specialist, Dr. Robert Raines who would attempt to locate matching dental records for the human victim. He started by contacting Ida Rhodes’ dentist for his records for his patient. Ida’s dental records were quickly couriered over to Dr. Mitchell’s office. After a thorough comparison of the dental records with the teeth on the decomposing body of Ida Rhodes, Dr. Raines concluded that there was a positive match. Dr. Mitchell was now free to start her autopsy with the knowledge that her deceased patient was indeed, Ida Rhodes.
A veterinary expert was able to determine from his examination of the dog’s skeletal remains that the breed’s identifying characteristics were consistent with the dog that the old lady had owned.
After about an hour and a half’s time had elapsed, Sheriff George Anderson and Deputy Bill Rollins arrived at Dr. Mitchell’s medical laboratory.
As the Sheriff approached Marsha Mitchell he found it necessary to cover his nose with a handkerchief in order to make the decomposition of Ida Rhode’s body less offensive to him.
“Hello, Dr. Mitchell. What have you determined so far?” George asked.

The Writing Process (Part Two)


The Writing Process Part Two

As I am writing this post I am still recovering from a tooth extraction I had done earlier this week. My mouth still feels weird and my stomach is starting to feel queasy again. This could be due to the penicillin I am taking. My extracted tooth was abscessed so my dentist gave me the prescription for the antibiotic. That’s the great thing about writing. You can still write when you aren’t feeling that great.

I’m still a novice at writing fiction but I have discovered some things already. Recently I have been getting up with the cows and the roosters to do most of my writing. The house is quiet and peaceful in the early hours of the morning and I find this very conducive to getting some productive writing done. Stephen King has written that If you have a regular consistent writing schedule, the Muse will quickly find this out and will join you during these writing sessions. So far I have found this to be true. There are days though, when I don’t feel like writing at all. I have found it helpful to listen to Stephen King’s audio book, On Writing as soon as I get out of bed. I have found On Writing to be very practical and inspirational as a writing tool. After about fifteen to twenty minutes of listening to this audio book I am ready to write.
