The 6th Annual Halloweensie Contest 3 Word Challenge!

3 Word Challenge: Ghost, Spider, Moon
AN EXTRA SPECIAL 3 WORD CHALLENGE: A HALLOWEENSIE CONTEST ENTRY!


What is the Halloweensie Contest you might ask? Well, author Susanna Leonard Hill hosts an annual contest for very short Halloween stories, using 3 specific words: THE HALLOWEENSIE! Right up my alley, #amiright? For specifics, and to enter your own amazing 100 word (or less) children's Halloween story/poem, go here! Her 3 selected words are GHOST, SPIDER and MOON.

And, so you can feel even more up to the challenge, here's my entry! :)

The Frighteners

On Halloween night, a spider and ghost
wanted to see who could frighten the most.
One point to Spider for that BOO! in the tree.
One scare for Ghost, for that ghost wannabe.
Two more to Ghost for those giggling boys.
One more for Spider – that one she enjoyed!
Eight for the scary and horrible web,
that filled those tricksters with woe and with dread.
Six for the Ouija prank under the moon,
those Halloween jokers won’t be back soon.
As of right now Spider’s still in the lead…
but who scares YOU most on All Hallows’ Eve?

    1. Thanks, Johnell! Since spiders are unquestionably real, they at least have that going for them! :)

    1. Thanks, Cat! If Spider is like Traci's and Ghost is like your ghost kiddo, it would definitely be a battle to the finish! :)

  7. Love the contest between ghost and spider. So fun! And that's a hard choice for who is scarier...on Halloween, probably ghosts!

  9. Great idea for your story, a scaring contest indeed. Since I was totally scared by a giant spider in my house last night, I would say spider wins!
