As if October isn’t fun enough with my birthday, there’s also great big gobs of spooky, creepy, gory stuff with Halloween!
So while The Beneficent Mr. Hall is
kicking me out gifting me with a lovely writer’s retreat up in the Blue Ridge Mountains (OOOOoooooOOOoooo), I might find time for a little Halloween fun. You can join me, in spirit at least.
Susanna Leonard Hill’s sponsoring her Third Annual Halloweensie Contest! All you have to do is come up with a 100-word Halloween story appropriate for children and then post it to your blog between October 28th and October 31st for judging. And if you need a little inspiration, you might want to read something wicked this way comes.
Check out the blurbs from Simon and Schuster’s latest Best Halloween Books for Adults. Or maybe just check out the trailers. ‘Cause seriously, this is some scary reading, y’all.
Great photo! Loved your post on the Muffin yesterday, too.
Aw, thanks, Gwen! Glad you liked both! 🙂
Cathy–I agree with Gwen. The photo is great. It makes me think of the way I feel about my writing sometimes. 😉
Hahahaha! Yep, Sioux. Been there. Scary. 🙂
Funny photo. Wish I were that clever. Hope you have lots of fun and gets lots of writing done during your retreat. I’ll check out the links you’ve provided. My kiddos and I watched something wicked this way comes years ago and loved it!
I read the book…Ray Bradbury, I think. Totally creepy, Donna.
Love the pukin’ punkin’. And here’s wishing you a happy birthday. 🙂 Gonna check out the contest, because I love that short stuff!
This sounds like a fun contest. I can’t wait to read what you post. Have a happy birthday!
Oh, Cathy C!…That pumpkin is just gross!! Ewww…I have a very weak stomach and just looking at it is NOT a good thing for me!! LOL
