Ladies and gentlemen of Booksie, gather round. As the heat of summer begins to retreat and the leaves start to take on a new hue, I realize that Halloween is moving closer into our midst. Halloween, I'm certain, is not just my favorite holiday, but also a favorite for many of you as well (and countless spooks and spirits share our feeling, possibly?). As the chill creeps into the air and the ghosts begin to stir and wake, a challenge presents itself... a Halloween challenge!
Here’s the challenge:
Pick a number, 1-50. You will be assigned a quote from a famous horror movie.
You will write a short story or legend with your quote in mind. You can use your quote within your story, however you see fit! Your story does not necessarily have to be a scary one, but extra points will be assigned to any and all who can deliver shivers to this, your waiting audience!
Each of you who write a story will receive a full review from me, including my thoughts on your title, summary, originality, and of course, the story itself.
You will all also receive a summary and link to your story on my winner's article that will be published October 20th, just in time for the Halloween readers!
The first prize winner will receive full press on my own booksie page, along with a summary of your story and link to your page.
Deadline for this Horror Movie Challenge is October 10th. Once you have posted your story, comment on this article with the title so I can find it and read it.
I can't wait to read your works, so you better be ready to bring on the scare!!!
