WEEKLY CHALLENGE #44
1. CHALLENGE: October is coming! So, this week’s challenge is to write a two (or three) sentence HORROR story. It doesn’t have to be gory or creepy, either, it can be anything that is truly terrifying from realistic situations to zombies and anything in between.
The two-sentence challenge seems like it should be one of the easier challenges, but it’s actually pretty difficult to pack suspense into so few words. When done right, however, the results are pretty epic. This challenge helps us choose our words wisely in limited situations and still make an impact.
Think you can do it? Of course, you can! Looking forward to reading all of your amazing entries. Oh, and… everyone who enters this challenge will gain BONUS entries for next week’s challenge and that challenge involves a pretty awesome prize!
2. COMMENT: You MUST comment on FOUR other entries to qualify. If you do not, your entry will be disqualified from the challenge. Give and take… Keep the cycle going.
3. IMPORTANT In order to qualify, you MUST vote for your TOP TWO choices. If you don’t vote, you cannot win this challenge (even if you receive the most votes!).
