Post your story on your blog between 12:00 AM EDT Monday October 27th and Friday October 31st by 11:59 PM EDT and add your post-specific link to the list that will accompany my October 27th post. There will be no Would You Read It that week, and no PPBF, so the post and the list of links will stay up all week for everyone to enjoy. If you don't have a blog and would like to enter, you can simply copy and paste your entry in the comments section of that post once it's up. (Or, if you have difficulty with the comments, which unfortunately sometimes happens, you may email your entry to me and I'll post it for you!)
Here's my contribution, something that might be a bit off the beaten path.
A Messy Halloween
“My word!” Mommy said, hands on hips.
Pumpkin seeds bounced along the kitchen floor to the up and down rhythm of mommy's wand in my fist. Grandma moved her walker doing a two-step. Mimi, our black cat, jumped on the window sill and meowed. The jack-o-lantern looked on with his crooked grin.
Mommy snapped her fingers. Her broomstick flew into her grasp. The floor creaked as she danced, bobbing her head to the pots and pans’ beat.
“A messy Halloween is the best Halloween when my little witch comes into her powers,” she sang.And we danced the Halloween away.
