Yessss!! I rarely come to this site anymore but I always try to make it back for the Halloween writing contest. This is my favorite. Unfortunately I didn't have time to participate last year, but the year before I won some money so I'm looking forward to a repeat. Good luck to everyone who enters!

I see we already have a few entries! I'm glad to see people are enthusiastic. However, the deadline isn't for another few weeks. Make sure to proof read, edit, and revise! This isn't a race-- you don't get bonus points for finishing quickly. The longer you work on your story, the better it'll end up.

Do sounds spelled like "SHWHOOP!" count as part of the story?


Laughing since...wait, when did I first laugh?

Since I Can't really do an animation this year (Computer problems 3:), I might as well enter the Halloween Writing Contest. I'll give it a shot :D

Man, I didn't proof read my story thoroughly. I feel like such a failure.

I'm throwing my hat in as a judge. Also, since there seem to be many entries, and some pretty good ones too, I'll add $10 to the prize pool for the first place winner (last time I gave the first place winner, BoobMarley $10 but there is a .59 surcharge so the winner will actually get $9.41 >.>; winenr must have Paypal account).

Also, everyone be sure to title your story, re-read your story at least once, and remember that if you need help or peer-edits, you can ask anyone here. I'm sure someone would be willing to exchange stories and peer-edit/revise.

Good luck.

Cool! Extra money to the winner! Also who do you guys think as the best story so far?

I'll make a news post and put all the reviews on my page when I'm finished. I'm only 8 entries in (started yesterday), but I must say that I really enjoyed Chronamut's poem, despite the superficial flaws.

Your entry was pretty great, man. I always thought that song was massively fucked up and creepy.

Heh, yeah... when I was younger of course it was just a cute little song, but as I began actually paying attention to the world around me a little more... I realized how jacked up that 'Song' really is...O.o!

I'm not a judge or organizer but since the deadline is the 31st, I assume the results will be posted probably a few days (at least 3) after the deadline since a good bit of stories and some very long ones have been submitted.

Ugh been on a tough film set this weekend. Need to get my energy up and write this thing tomorrow. 1/3 done. The whole story's in my head, just gotta find the groove to write about 2,000 more words.

I think you guys will like this one. It will probably have too much pathos to actually be considered scary, though. More horrific than creepy. Appealing more to a sense of hatred than fear.

Clippers-Warriors games :) Go Clips!

I've actually already reviewed every story except the last 3 (which were submitted today). I expect about 5-7 more stories to trickle in until Oct. 31 midnight, but I'll review them as they come in (should finish Kris's by tonight).

Expect them within 1-2 days (at least that seems to be what riggormortis has implied).

All done! Story's posted.

As far as actual Halloween goes:
I had my Halloween party already, so Halloween night will probably be closing at work or something >_>

Homemade Twisted Fate (League of Legends) costume for my Halloween party! Was a big hit :D

That's the plan! ALSO! Expect a new contest announced early November. I have something in mind I think the writing community will like.

I posted mine at 11:59. I ran out of time to work on this during the last couple of days because of work. I wish I had the time to edit it quite a bit more.
