It’s Halloween everyone! I know your all ready to be someone else tonight…or at least I know that I’m ready to be someone else for a night!! Alright, one extra rule today. Your story has to be not only scary, but bone-chilling. I don’t want blood and gore, or mess and fuss. Think Poe, Lovecraft, and King when you’re writing for this story challenge, and give me something that will keep me awake tonight. If you’ve forgotten, here are the rules: I provide you with three words, a verb, a noun, and a random word. You then use these to write a story. Your story must be flash fiction (under 1000 words) and if you are going to post it in the comments, then please keep it around 500 words. I’ll do my best to respond to all of the stories posted (or emailed to me), but I’m as busy as you are (maybe more), so I might not get to all of them. Also, you may use any form of the words I post, but nouns must remain nouns, and verbs must remain verbs, etc.
Your words are:
Random Word: Apt
If you never figured it out, ever story challenge this month contained the name, or a significant portion of the name, of a famous scary movie. Also, the movies referenced got progressively better as the month went on, to end with Apt Pupil, probably my favorite horror movie of all time.
