The other thing that springs to mind, in an ironic turn of phrase for autumn, is the fact that we are just over a month away from Halloween. Now over the past couple or three years, following an idea in 2005 by pax_draconis, I have tried with limited success, to stir up interest in an annual 500 word Christmas ghost (or horror) story challenge. It’s only intended to be a bit of fun coupled with the hope squeezing a bit of creativity out of people I know are capable, but who for whatever reason, rarely write. There have been some good stories submitted by a small, but enthusiastic band and I thought it might be fun to try for a Halloween challenge this year. Again, let’s try and keep them at 500 words.
By way of making this a little different to the Christmas ghost story challenge, I thought it might be fun for people to pick a line from a song and use that as inspiration for their 500 words.
Any takers, or am I shouting into the void?
