Susanna Leonard Hill’s 7th Annual Halloweensie Contest 2017 - My Entry #2

The Contest: Write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children using the words candy corn, monster, and shadow. Candy corn counts as 1 word.  Halloweensie Contest.

While you're there, check out the Picture Book Magic class. I am a proud graduate. I was already published when I took the class, yet still found it extremely helpful in taking apart my problem manuscripts and putting them back together in a way that they work better!

Trick or Treat? with Little Bo-Creep  

(101 with Candy Corn and Excluding Title)

By Lynne Marie

            “Each ‘hide and creep’ winner will get candy corn 

treats,” Little Bo-Creep announced.
            She covered her eyes, counted and searched. Not a sheep could be found!   
            “Little monsters,” shrieked Bo-Creep. “Come out, come out, wherever you are!”
            All Halloween, Bo-Creep searched in the shadows. When the sun rose, her sheep were still gone.
            “I’ll teach you to roam so far from your home,” said Little Bo-Creep. She painted rocks like candy corn and created a trail leading to the meadow.
            She sat by the gate and waited. The snickering winners grabbed up their treats and started to eat.
Trick! squealed Bo-Creep.

PLEASE leave a comment if you enjoyed my story. Happy Halloweensie!

    1. I was having fun with her so I was thinking the same thing. Maybe a companion book to my Moldilocks and the 3 Scares coming out from Sterling! LOL Thank you so much for your supportive comments, and for stopping by My Word Playground.

  3. I wish those sheep would just stay away from Miss Bo-Creep forever. I like her as much as the wicked witch of the west. Maybe they should pull the wool over her eyes, LOL. Good luck in the contest!

    1. LOL @McMarshall. I'm hoping it could possibly be a picture book companion to my Moldilocks and the 3 Scare coming out from Sterling. And the idea had never come to me before I had to come up with an entry for this contest. Thanks for your supportive comments!
