As I did last year, I found this Halloween challenge inspiring. I made more detailed cuts for my filters this year inspired by PBS’s Monstrum, and came up with the idea to use tiny brads to add movable aspects to my filters. Thank you Tourmaline .
Today’s prompt is Costume. I put my lights and decorations along the driveway. The candy table is ready just inside the door, and the candy bowl is full. Now for my costume:
I think it’s a good fit. I’m drinking “Three Ghost” Pinot Noir. I had to open it early to let the ghosts out.
I didn’t see a prompt today, so I’ll finish out my thirty-one poems with an Ode to Halloween.
Ode to Halloween
The neighbor’s black cat has crossed the path and back, and he’s the kind to keep company of witches, so I await their hour to witness their power, or at least a glance of bewitched dancing in the moonlight
Soon it will be night time to plug in all the lights to invite the strangers to come the monsters good and ill the doorbell gives a thrill and I’ll run to see the hideous and cute candy grabbing hands
Oh, Halloween finally arrived that one night a year we accept the dead alive, and slash open the veil to the other side where do they all hide when November comes?
We made it! The last flash fiction story of Writober. Thirty-one flash fiction story drafts, or at least some. Did you try it? I managed full drafts the first two days, but then didn’t write much more than what I shared here until I joined 4theWords. The last few days, I’ve been writing one or two full flash fiction drafts each day. I mean, they are absolute garbage first drafts, but they are complete stories with beginnings, middles, and ends. It has been great!
