Recently, Frostburg State University’s Center for Creative Writing held a community writing contest which focused on short “Spooky Stories”.
It’s been a long while since I’ve written something creative, so I thought I would make an attempt at this contest without regard for the prize. So, I set out and wrote this story in about 2 hours.
My wonderful wife also wrote a very exciting and subtle story for this contest. I think, for me at least, the knowledge that we were both working toward the same goal excited me, and made each keystroke that much more meaningful.
So, this past week was the due date, and I submitted both of our stories for the contest. Hit the jump to read my story, and feel free to leave comments.
I will be attending the Pirates Ahoy! today in Frostburg, MD, taking photos and video for The Appalachian Independent.
Put on by the Frostburg State University Children’s Literature Centre and FrostburgFirst, there will be a costume contest, treats, and a treasure hunt!
My 2-year-old son is really looking forward to it. I hope that I get to see many youngins and adults alike dressed in pirate garb. It should make for a pretty interesting video.
So, if you aren’t busy this morning, come on up to Frostburg, and have some piratey fun with your children!
