Dear me.

A softly written Halloween tale with a slight satirical slant maybe. Clapping hands More than one interpretation of a Halloween tale. Just look at Sundown: Vampire in Retreat. A film which although it can't be considered a big 'hit' or anything but one of my favourites when I was younger.

Either way I look forward to reading all contributions Thumbs Up

RE: Horrible Halloween Tales

I'm not doing so well on mine. The writing of a Halloween story is not easy when you cant get the horror to come right. I'm going to bow out of this years collection and try to do some more work on it until I am happy for others to read it. Sad

..horror, there was meant to be horror.... Hiding (Ok, maybe a little bit of subtle horror in mine).
Actually, Jaxom, the hardest thing I found was to keep the story short - how to build something up, make it interesting and have a satisfying end? Then a friend of mine did a quick Halloween story in 630 words just to show me that it could be done.Sad Perhaps you could finish your story in your own time and still show us when it's ready?

RE: Horrible Halloween Tales

I've just finished my second story, possibly more grotesque than the first Big Grin

Pending any late entries, there should be five terrible tales for you to look forward to on Sunday.
