Last Call for Participants!

Any Other 50 Word Halloween Story Challenge participants out there? Help me turn this simple challenge into something special for a Halloween post.

Please post your 50 word Halloween themed story to this blog post as a comment. I will gather all the stories that are entered and post them to a massive Halloween post on the big day. I’ll credit the author and provide a link to the author’s blog/site so that people can check out the rest of your amazing work.

It really doesn’t take long and if you’re starting Nanowrimo in a week like some of us, then it’s good practice to get the brain going. Here’s what I need:

A 50 word, cohesive story, that has something to do with either Halloween or spooky stuff, or candy, or whosit’s and whatsit’s that go bump in the night, or your creepy Uncle Ted and Aunt Juniper who you never see, or your imaginary friend who thinks you’re crazy, or the thing you saw in your backyard as you looked out your window last night, or how scary this election year is…  You get the picture.

It can be almost anything as long as it has to do loosely with Halloween. The only thing is I don’t want anything hateful towards anyone, don’t want anything erotica, don’t want 50 cuss words posted in a comment, you know…

  1. Scary story, things that go bump in the night. Don’t turn around, or else you will get such a fright. The trick or treater’s haven’t even started arriving, yet the hair on the back of your neck is standing on end. You know there is a reason, but s part of you us to scared to even want to try and comprehend.

    You worry if you have enough candy, for when the trick or treater’s finely start to come. What happens if you run out? What trick will it be for this Halloween year.

    Your playing Halloween music. And you have your Halloween costume on just right. A part of you is excited, and yet another part of you doesn’t feel right. As if you already know with dread in your heart….that something horrible has already happened. Yet outside nothing is happening, underneath the full moons bright light.

    Are you over reacting? Letting your imagination get away from you? You know deep down inside something is very wrong…..

  2. “Monsters Are Real”

    I can hear the monster scratching and coughing under my bed. My dad says they don’t exist but I’ve seen it’s glowing eyes.

    Will it eat me like it did my socks?

    Squeezing my eyes shut, I remember what my dad told me. He said, “Don’t worry, monsters don’t purr.”

  3. “Trick or Treat”

    A teen boy stood next to another boy in a white sheet on the sidewalk, waiting for his brother to finish Trick-or-Treating.

    “I hate Halloween,” he said.

    “Not me,” the ghost said, “ghosts can walk around without scaring people.”

    “Ghosts aren’t real,” he said looking up, but the boy vanished.
