The 9th Annual Halloweensie Contest

Happy Halloween!

One of my favorite things to help me stay inspired and remain creative, is to partake in contests. Author Susanna Hill offers a spooktacular opportunity on her blog called : The 9th Annual Halloweensie writing contest.

Here are the rules:

It must be 100 words or less, use the words potion, cobweb, and trick, be kid-friendly, and focused on Halloween.

Here’s my entry:

Flying Lessons

On all hollows eve, the witches were out. They zipped and zoomed. Except for Alice. 

She leaped into the air. 

“Lift!” 

Thud. 

She dashed down the hill. 

“Lift!” 

Crash!

Alice tried a magic potion.

Poof!

Her broomstick shimmied, shook, and flew into a cobweb.

“I give up!” she groaned. 

Suddenly, the wind swirled and howled.

The broom jostled and jolted.

Alice was lifted into the air!

“That’s the trick!” she whooped and hollered.

And up, up, up she flew, whirling and twirling… 

just like the other witches.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy writing!
