55 Word Challenge: Week Eighty-One


Welcome Coffin Hoppers to the #55WordChallenge! This is going to be the last one for a few weeks. I'm not participating in Nano, but I know many of you are, so the challenge will be back in December. And while I am not participating, I will take the time off to finish up some of my writing projects. Wish me luck and the best of luck to all of you taking part in the November madness.

For those that are uninitiated, the 55 Word Challenge is a contest to write a story in 55 words or less. Not an easy task, but fun and I have been blown away by some of the entries. See for yourself, past contests can be found here. The challenge begins at noon Eastern time every Wednesday and ends at noon Thursday. The story is based on one of three photo prompts. My only request is no porn. I don't want to hear graphic details. If it is erotic, make it titillating, not obscene. I know that can be done and done well.

The story is to be posted in the comment section below, along with your twitter handle or email address, so I can contact you if you are the winner.

And what does the winner get? Besides bragging rights? This badge, which can proudly be displayed on your blog or website. You can even have it tattooed onto your body, but that might be a little weird.  
 I have also added 2 new badges. An Honorable Mention badge and an Overachiever badge. To be eligible for the Overachiever Badge, you need to use all 3 prompts.

If anyone is interested in contributing a prize, a book, cover art, whatever you want, let me know and we will work something out. If you are an artist that would like to have your work featured, let me know!

Photo Prompt:

Shameless Plug:

The Bloody Book of Halloween is free, so why not download a copy? Jeff and I both have stories in this fun anthology.
I just updated the link... it should work now to get the book free.
