The wait is finally over! It’s time for Susanna Hill’s fabulous Halloweensie Contest.
According to the guidelines, you need to write a story for children that is 100 words or less and uses the words GHOST, SPIDER, and MOON.
I’ve always participated in this challenge…it’s a great writing prompt that helps you come right to the point while trying to entertain kids.
Here is my entry…I hope you enjoy it. Please visit the link up on Susanna’s website so you can read the other stories. Some may be posted in the comment section of her blog for those people who don’t have their own blog. Voting will take place on November 7 and winners will be announced a couple of days after that.
THE TRICK-OR-TREAT BAG (100 words)
Tucked in a box, Trick-or-Treat Bag slept. He dreamed of friendly ghosts, scary spiders, and a tummy full of treats.
One day, Bag’s world shook. Earthquake!
Bag felt a tug. Whoosh! Bag dangled in the air.
“It’s wrinkled,” said Sally.
“Shake it out,” said Sam.
“Don’t you want a new bag?” said Sam. “Your costume is new.”
Sally held Bag close. “My old costume was too small,” she said. “But this bag will always be just right for me.”
Bouncing to the beat of Sally’s heart, Bag twinkled as they trick-or-treated in the Halloween moonlight.
I hope you enjoyed the story…I’ve never written one from a bag’s POV…now I can’t wait to read all of the other contest entries!
Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends! And HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!
