It’s creepy and it’s cooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
It’s all together ooky,
The Halloweensie Contest!
Susanna Leonard Hill has done it again! She has put a seed in my brain and I can’t shake it… no matter how hard I try!
I know, I can’t get away from the seeds! I should be a gardener….I’m a great weed grower…not the inhaling kind..sorry. Though that might be more interesting wouldn’t it?
Hey, did you know I am running a lemon basil seed giveaway? You did? That’s great! Did you enter the giveaway? You didn’t? No worries…
You’ve. Still. Got. Time! Like, a whole 3 days! That’s enough time to enter and still watch several Gilmore Girls episodes….
You’re right…I should get back to the story!
What kind of seed was planted you ask?
The book idea kind.
The My floors are so dirty they might just get up and walk away but I MUST write this story first kind…..
The If I don’t do laundry soon we’ll all be walking around in our bathrobes but I MUST write this story first kind…and we don’t even own bathrobes!
The I need to go to the grocery store so bad we’re gonna be eating saltines and pickle juice for dinner but I MUST write this story first kind….
Seriously, I love these little competitions. This time was a bit trickier…It’s Halloweensie themed, the words pumpkin, broomstick and creak MUST be used, and it MUST be under 100 words! YIKES!
I think I can, I think I can…Hey lookie, I DID!
Keep in mind this story is for the very young (I write children’s books remember?) and although it is quite comprehensible with text only, it was written with the hopes of being paired with sprightly illustrations.
ONE TWO PUMPKIN BREW (Childrens PB, WC 21, Ages 2-6yrs.)
One…Two, Pumpkin Brew!
Three…Four, Creak and Roar!
Five…Six, Broomstick Tricks!
Seven…Eight, Scary Fate?
Sooo…was it frightful enough for you? Do I need to hold your hand?
You know what’s good for that?
