This Halloween I decided to enter a writing contest (frenzy) for fun. Below is my entry. It had to be 100 words or less, which was a challenge. My shortest story yet!
Harper, the witchling loves Halloween!
six candy corns,
a sprinkle of dust-everlasting.
She sips and waits…
Children shout, “Trick or treat!”
As they leave more appear.
“Trick or treat!!”
On and on it goes…
Harper grows weary.
The children line up down the street
and around the corner.
“I must sleep,” yawns Harper.
“TRICK OR TREAT!!!”
Frantic, Harper stirs a new potion.
three candy corns,
a sprinkle of normal-essesnce.
The sun rises.
“Whew, maybe Halloween is better once a year.”
