Red curtain

Red curtain

Prompt by Joyce Juzwik

This week, shape-shifters, ghosts, vamps, and all their supernatural pals are busy writing the stories they plan to bring to life on Halloween night. They want to make this one especially terrifying, so they’re beginning their preparations early. They’ve come up with some awesome titles for their tales, but there were a few left over. Rather than let great titles lie around with no stories to belong to, the spirits decided to donate them to you.

The titles are:

  1. Last Rites
  2. Broken Dreams
  3. To Honor All
  4. The Invitation
  5. Footprints

Prompt: Choose one of the above titles, then write your story.

Genre: Paranormal

Word Count: 1,500 or less

Deadline: Thursday, September 1, 2016

Post your story on your blog or website and provide a link to it in the comment section of this prompt.
