Challenge: Write a story in 25 words or less.

Theme: Scare. (Use of theme word in story is required)

Participants: Anyone. You don't have to be an author. I'm not.

What you can't do: If you are an author, do not mention it. This means no links.

What you can do: If you are an author, put information about your books on your profile page. Link your books, webpage, or Amazon author page.

Comments: If you want to comment on another person's writing, please be positive. This is not a critique thread. We want any and all participants to feel comfortable and enjoy participating, whether they've never written anything more than an email or they've sold 20,000 books.

I will begin in my next post. Have fun!

What scares me? Banjo music, especially banjo music near the Cahulawassee River in the remote Georgia wilderness....

below in the darkness I sat; my skin crawled, I felt the pitter-patter of a wee beastie hurrying along my naked thigh. Scared?

She makes young children cry
Look if you dare
you'll get a  scare
as on her broom she flies

I'm glad, She! :)

Hahaha!!

I'm assuming that refers to the movie I will never see 'cause the very idea freaks me out!

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 28, 2012 6:10:44 PM PDT
Now I'm scared, too!

What a great poem, In2.

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 28, 2012 6:23:10 PM PDT
Yes, it is that movie!

Be somewhat afraid - muahahaha!

"Why are you shivering?"

"I'm scared."

"What are you scared of?"

"That I might get cold and get the shivers."

"Okay...."

Preventative measures are always best.

Oh, wait!

What's very scary? That there are so many DVFs with no life out there!

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 29, 2012 6:17:04 PM PDT
Lol!

I think it's because they are scared they wouldn't be able to write a story of 25 words or less so they don't even try.

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 29, 2012 6:24:15 PM PDT
I'm scared that they couldn't even write a story with one word in it.

Here's one: ~~~~~scaaaaaary~~~~~~

Edited to keep on Anna's good side.
Edited again to meet Anna's 25 word rule

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 29, 2012 7:08:57 PM PDT
No, no, no! That should be, "I was scared my masterpiece was getting bad reviews..."

LOL Should I edit it?

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 29, 2012 8:07:54 PM PDT
Naw. Just don't let Anna catch you. She can be scary when you don't follow her rules. Muwahahaha!

Silly girls. Nothing to be scared of, unless you exceed the 25-word limit.

Oh the horrors that befell the unfortunate, never-to-be-heard-from-again writers who did. :(
