Writing Prompt #21


Write a Halloween story or poem without using the words halloween, pumpkin/jack-o’-lantern, costume, candy, or trick or treat!

Where do I begin…


Yikes, I’m a bad, bad blogger! I’ve been so busy this year but I’ve not stopped writing!

In fact, I placed in two national contests this year (2015):

The Institute of Children’s Literature Kindergarten Contest of 150 words or less

(2nd Place!)


The Institute of Children’s Literature Early Reader Mystery Contest of 700 words or less (4th Place!)

I recently began submitting in Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine Mysterious Photo Contest and my first entry surprised me with an Honorable Mention, which my name is listed in the November Issue! YAY!

I’m excited that things are finally beginning to happen for me! Writing is a continuous learning experience. I can tell I’ve grown over the years and I know I will continue to grow till the day I take my last breath. At least I hope so! (and may that be a long time from now!)
