It's time for another kid lit contest: Halloweensie, hosted by Susanna Hill.
The challenge: write an eensie-weensie 100-word Halloweenie story, using the words goodies, glow-in-the-dark, and goosebumps.
Here's my entry!
Who Cares if it's Cold?
I was supposed to be a glow-in-the-dark jellyfish.
Then it snowed.
Look, I’m twelve. This is my last year of trick-or-treating,
and I refuse to wear a musty old coat over my costume!
When Dad drops me off, I’ll give a cozy wave and then
kick the coat to the curb.
I’m going down in goose-bumpy glory!
Maybe I’ll drape it over my shoulders.
One arm in?
It’s so annoying when Dad’s right.
But these pockets do hold extra goodies.
And at least I’m the only
on the street!
