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
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!
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
I can't wait to read your works, so you better be
ready to bring on the scare!!!
