Time for Susanna Hill’s 100-word Halloweensie story contest. This year, the stories must contain the three words (in any form): potion, cobweb, trick. The 100 word limit does not include the title. And no illustration notes are allowed. I’m a little late to the party, but the clock has not yet struck midnight, so here goes! The word count for my story is exactly 100 words. Looking forward to reading as many entries as I can. Good luck, everyone!
Not This Book
Everyone loves Halloween, right?
I’m hiding here until Halloween is history.
This book will NOT give me nightmares.
We’ll see NO witches,
or scarecrows with hollowed out eyes….
…Ignore that shadow.
or bats will get caught in our hair.
NOTHING will tickle the backs of our necks….
…Did you feel…
…just a few shadows, but—
eyes of newt,
or dinner parties where
zombies eat quivering, warm brains.
Pssst! It’s a trick! You’re in the wrong book!
Noooooooooo!! RUN FOR IT!!
