Hi everyone! I hope everyone’s safe and sound and enjoying the Halloween season…its only a few days away. I’ve been getting in the spirit of things with a lovely writing contest from Susanna Hill. Here’s the link if you’re interested! https://susannahill.com/category/halloweensie-contest/
The details: write a story that contains the words skeleton, mask, and creep. The catch…it can only be 100 words. Challenge accepted!
I love writing contests because its a great way to be inspired and stretch my creativity. This one is especially challenging because of the required word count…hence HalloWEENSIE. I also love the community of writers. There’s so much talent out there and I love reading other writers works.
So here is my entry. I’ve been writing creepier things than usual. I hope you enjoy it! And thanks for visiting!
THE HOUSE THAT NO ONE VISITS There is a house where shadows stretch and cloak the yard in darkness. Where rumors fly that evil lurks – just behind the hinges. But I am brave, unlike the rest. I creep up withered stairs. I grab the skeleton knocker as I fidget with my mask. A warning whispers through the wind – stay away from here. A shiver ices down my spine… I freeze over with fear. A quake rumbles beneath my feet I scream as the floor gives way! Now I’M the whisper of warning you hear- forever, a prisoner, in the house that no one visits.
