Every year (except for last year) I try to write a Halloween-themed short story. I write it for two reasons. One: I get really excited that/this time of year, and two: I’m really bad at short stories. I have six or seven written, all terrible. Conflict/resolution sucks. They’re always too long because of what I try to include as backstory.
But I love the season, and I love to spend a month writing something terrible, even if nobody else ever sees it.
I started wondering if anyone else did something similar for Halloween, or if someone wanted to do it this year. It’d be fun to read and share.
I also have no idea what I’ll be writing this year, but I have a feeling it’ll involve four characters dressed as other characters getting candy door-to-door. And they’re way too old to be out.
