“Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.”
Ready to enter the most amazing Halloween challenge ever? You’ve come to the right place to cause a fright! Prepare yourselves for Halloween night, and help everyone on Booksie get ready for this wonderful holiday with a story that will scare the pants off of any reader!
Here’s the challenge:
First, give me 2 letters. The first letter will be the name of one of the characters in your story, and the second letter will be a character’s costume in the story (can be same character or different).
Second, pick a number between 1 through 20. This number will decide the Halloween quote you are given to base your story around.
You will write a short story or legend with those items in mind. The entry that causes the most fright in its readers will be claimed the winner! For example, if I get the shivers reading it, you win! Reader comments will help me decide as well – mostly because I’m a big pansy and there’s not a lot that doesn’t give me the heeby jeebies!
Deadline for this Frightfest Challenge is October 25th. Once you have posted your story, comment on this article with the title so I can find it and read it. Happy Haunting!
