And here are the results of our Short and Not-So-Sweet Halloween contest! Damn, it was hard to choose.
In First Place...
We have Pepperfan1's one sentence story
"I had to kill the dog!" Mother cried out, pointing to the shredded baby blanket.
Judge's note: Took me a while to get, but then it hit me and ...oh my god.
In Second Place...
We have Luxieon's six word story That New Restaurant Downtown
"Delicious soup!" "Thanks, it's my sister."
In Third Place...
We have facile-guise's couplet Stalker
Skin is crawling, dry-mouth drought;
Chillbumps, then, my light went out.
Great rhythm, and just spine-tingling.
For the runner-ups in each category... (in no particular order)
mcjo13's couplet Candy Dreams
How can candy thoughts and sugar plum dreams
become mangled into such beautiful screams?
ilyilaice's six word storyTrick-Or-Treating at Uncle Alfred's
Annie wanted popcorn, not popped cherry.
Now that's what you call a Halloween story!
dawn181's one sentences story Pull out the drills, the kids are coming
Smiling with glee, the dentist marked another day off his calendar; Halloween had arrived.
Oh, the dentist, it's always the dentist...
And now, an honourable mention/judge's pick/whatever-you-want-to-say-it-was-awesome
RosenrotOhRosenrot's six word story
I am your cerebral nightmare.
And there we have it! The winners have been moved to the Featured folder and featured on the front page of the group. The rest can be found in the Past Contests folder. Prizes will be distributed hopefully ASAP.
Congratulations to everyone who entered! And watch out for our Secret Santa, starting in a few days!
