Spooked (Halloween Special)

It’s time to dwell into the world of supernatural / fantasy / horror. It’s time to get spooky.

Halloween is just around the corner and with everyone posting about the overused “real” horror stories with creepy pumpkin faces on their social media, let’s break the line and challenge ourselves to write an original fiction - and not just ANY fiction; A supernatural / fantasy / horror fiction.

Instead of being at the receiving end this halloween, how about you become the creator of your own halloween fiction? Sounds interesting right? Well, the process is even more exciting.

Doesn’t matter if you have or haven’t tried your hand at (Horror) fiction writing, this adventure is for you to improve as a writer and explore one of various facets of creative writing and we’re going to help you in your journey!
We’re going to give you three prompts for halloween supernatural / fantasy / horror, one from each category. You can choose to write any one or all three stories based on the three prompts. We’ll give a shoutout and post the best stories on social media throughout the two weeks until October 31, 2018.

Here are the three prompts:

Supernatural - You’ve been living alone in a house for 5 years. There’s a secret about this place that no one knows but you. Every 31st day in the month of October, a secret door in the basement appears for 24 hours...

Fantasy - The queen saw the entire castle crumbling in front of her. She was out in the fields alone and scared, with her one true companion - her loyal horse. She must ride and reach the witch’s shack before dusk and undo the spell before it’s too late...

Horror - You woke up one morning and found blood on your sheets. Confused, you jumped from the bed to check upon yourself. Your legs, stomach everything seemed okay until a drop of blood fell on your forehead. As you slowly turned your face to look up...

Some things to keep in mind:

  1. You can choose to include this prompt either at the beginning, middle, or end of your story.
  2. There is no word limit to your stories. They can be as long or short as you want.
  3. While publishing the story, use hashtag #Spooked in your description so that we can locate your entry.
  4. The deadline to participate in this adventure is October 30, 2018 8 PM (IST).

And to help you write horror fiction, we made a Guide - “Lessons From The Abyss: Faces Of Horror” free. This guide is written by our featured writer - Walking Contradiction and covers writer’s insights to all things Horror. Click here to read the full free guide.
