I adore Halloween. It's such a fun holiday and I love making a big deal of it for my kids. Though I should probably specify... I love all of the fun and wholesome parts of Halloween... pumpkin patches, carnivals, chili cookoffs, carving pumpkins, hay rides... I do NOT love the scary parts of Halloween. I'm pretty much a baby there. But give me all the candy, caramel apples, and chances to dress up any day.
So when I read about Susanna Leonard Hill's Halloweensie Writing Contest, I knew I needed to write a story. I ended up writing two and really did have so much fun... But let me tell you, writing a full story with a legitimate beginning, middle, and end in only 100 words? It. Is. Hard! But definitely a fun challenge. The requirements this year specifically: write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (children here defined as 12 and under) (title not included in the 100 words), using the words potion, cobweb, and trick.
Now, without further ado, my stories.Happy Halloween, everyone! Be safe and. have fun tonight!
