We all have nightmares. Tell me yours, and write a story.
We all have nightmares. Sometimes they are scary, even during the day, like seeing your boss turn into something from the Crypt Keeper. Sometimes they are funny during the daytime, like your wife turning into that grandmother-in-law that never liked you. We all have them.|
For the most part, our nightmares come from our fears- fear of losing a job, fear of creepy-crawlies crawling all over you, creeping you out, or anything else. Sometimes it’s because you saw a scary movie, like a slasher-film full of blood and gore. Sometimes it’s because you ate some foods that shouldn’t be in the stomach at the same time, like candy and chicken wings. Sometimes you just don’t know why.
I want you to tell me about your own personal nightmare- after that; I want you to write a story based your nightmare.
1. I will Rate and Review each story that shows up- no matter how scary it is- you can’t get that guarantee with many contests.
2. Very Important- Your nightmare will be gone for good. Should said nightmare come back, I shall get a voodoo doctor to chant a “Nightmare Begone” spell for you- that ought to do the trick.
3. At the end of the month, I might give a Merit Badge or a black 10K Awardicon to my favorite nightmare story- depending on funds and number of qualifying entries- at least 5 needed.
