Welcome to the Hallowe’en instalment of the WEP bloghop.
For this challenge, share a childhood fright that might or did turn into an adult fear, real or imagined.
Confession: When it comes to writing, I don’t really write scary stuff. I haven’t tried it. However, I have been reading lots of horror and gory stuff recently, in an attempt to expand my horizons…
To start the fun you can:
- share a favorite frightening tale, movie, novel, photograph or painting that will leave us quaking in our boots
- in a short paragraph describe how it scared you, and why it did and or still does today
- then you can:
- submit your own scary piece, 1000 words or less, in any format or
- share a photograph or painting that captures the horror you’ve felt.
At the end of last year, I read my first Neil Gaiman novel, Neverwhere, and encountered two EVIL and grotesque characters, the violent and verbose Mr Vandemar & Mr Croup – the best villains ever. They terrified me but I couldn’t put the book down! I’m actually looking forward to the next Gaiman book…
So my contribution is in the form of a drabble, which is a 100-word story.
And now I need to visit some of the other participants!
