Sign up today! #WEPFF - HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE - Youthful Frights vs Adult Fears


Youthful Frights vs Adult Fears
It's Halloween, and time for scaring family and friends. 
Do you remember the monster under the bed? When I was a child, I knew it was a man-eating lion. He'd disappear when someone walked into the room, but stick an arm or leg over the edge and he'd snap them off.
What about the creepy house just down the street, the one you passed by every day on the way to school? Did you imagine someone watching you from the broken window?
Remember the cornfield that went on for miles and miles. Did you ever run through it and get lost among the dying stalks? Remember the panic that set in and the laughter of your cousin, when you finally emerged with the stain of tears on your face certain that something had been hunting you.
Or maybe it was more benign, a graveyard that looked serene during the day, but at night unexplained lights would move among the gravestones and give you the chills or worse.
Tell us about the horror that stalked you in the night. Write about it for this month's challenge and turn those childhood fears in a scare-fest like no other.
FLASH FICTION – POETRY -- NON-FICTION – ARTWORK -- PHOTOS

  1. Do we have to sign up in a two step process like last time? If the direct link is the one you want, I don't know how to do that before I publish the post. When I followed the instructions for updating the link last time, I moved about ten places down the list, so what's the advantage of signing up early? I'm confused. . .however, I do plan to add my name to the list after you educate me.

    1. No, not at all you sign up once and Denise and I will take care of the Direct Links so no one loses their place. But we would appreciate a comment or email to let us know your post is ready to be shared and we'll do the direct link. Does that help - I hope so, we'd really love to have your participation.

    2. Thanks, Yolanda! I like that option better with you or Denise taking care of the Direct Link. I had to add RFW (Rainforest Writing) after my entry as the auto - fill wanted to show Direct Link after my name, since that was what was last used. . .sheesh,

    1. You can't see the list above? We can add you to the list if that's the case, and then update it when your post is live. Early position receives the most views and comments. Let me know, I can add you now!

    2. Hi Yolanda. Yes I tried signing up and my name did not appear on the list. Would appreciate if you could add my name. I will then update when my post is ready.

  12. I've just finished editing my flash piece and it's a 100 words over mark. I suppose I could parse it up more if I have to, but would 100 over be ok?
