I love writing contests! I love prompts, and rules, and deadlines!
Here is my entry for the 2020 Fall Writing Frenzy brought to us by Lydia Lukidis and Kaitlyn Sanchez. There are sure to be a ton of fun fall-themed stories, each 200 words or less. Check them out here!

My story was inspired by this image:
For kids who get frightened
on Halloween night,
we have a new option
called “Halloween Lite.”
No skeletons, mummies,
or witches with cats.
No dark haunted houses,
or cobwebs, or rats.
No nightmarish knickknacks
allowed on our shelves.
No need for a costume —
we’ll dress as ourselves.
No sinister music.
No ghosts yelling, “Boo!”
Instead, we’ll blow kisses
and say, “I love you.”
We’ll strip out the scary
and add in some sweet.
You don’t like this option?
Phew! Let’s Trick-or-Treat!
