The 7th Annual Halloweensie Writing Contest hosted by Susanna Leonard Hill.

The Contest: write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (children here defined as 12 and under) (title not included in the 100 words).  You must use the words candy corn, monster and shadow.  Here is my entry below:

The Candy Corn Monster

Lily’s favorite day had arrived. At exactly 5:30 p.m. she dressed in a spiky-hair white wig, bright orange dress and canary yellow high-top tennis shoes. Smiling in the mirror, she was proud of her homemade candy corn costume. Once outside, she shadowed behind the other trick-or-treating children as they ran from house to house. Lily held out her sack and the homeowners filled it with treats. Not a single person noticing that under Lily’s outfit she was a real two-horned, five teeth, three-foot tall, blue haired purple monster who loved Halloween.

Fall Poems

Fall is my favorite time of year.  While I work on my cozy mysteries, I thought I would share a poem I have written in between edits.  Enjoy!

Apple cider, pumpkins and festivals galore

Fall is knocking on the door

Come in my old friend and let me partake

Before winter arrives and I put away my rake.

– Carole Lynn Jones

 

I would love to hear your short fall poems.  Comment me back.

Happy Writing!
