The 9th Annual Halloweensie Writing Contest

It’s Halloween and time for one of my favorite contests.

Thank you Susanna Leonard Hill for once again offering your annual Halloweensie contest.  This year’s Halloween stories must be appropriate for children and no more than 100 words. You must use the words potioncobweb and trick.  Please check out the below link for the full rules to Susanna’s contest and the other fabulous entries.

Here is my entry –

Grounded

I watched all my sisters
Above me in the sky
Moonlight casting shadows
Off their brooms as they fly.

My broom in the corner
Cobwebs cover it thick
To get me to join them
They attempt every trick.

Mixing up dark potions
Casting a flight time spell
Cackling voices chanting
“It’s go time” they all yell.

“Come on now sister witch
There is haunting to do
You need to be airborne
We can’t fly without you.”

Instead of joining them
And causing ghastly fright
I am the only witch
Who is afraid of height.

The 7th Annual Halloweensie Writing Contest

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.
