Haunted October ... It's That Time of Year Again!
Well, it's almost that time again.
I am sincerely hoping to be able to do the challenge fully again this year. So far, I have two stories finished and one started. This year, as well, I'm changing it a bit and reserving one week as "flash week," in which I will post a short-short piece (< 2000 words) every day for the week. Whether I will be able to come up with several pieces of flash and 1.5 short stories will largely depend on my school schedule. (I am up to my ears in assignments at the moment; American Fiction ends this week, so I have two major projects due this week. I have a Poe anthology tapping its foot and looking at me imploringly as I type this ...)
As in years past, I welcome anyone else who would like to play along during Haunted October to join me. It doesn't have to be a story a week; the point is to meet a challenge that is a challenge for you, not me. I am disgustingly prolific and know that. But I'd love to read as well as write some spooky stories in October, so let me know if you'll be writing anything!
All of my stories will be posted here on Friday. They will be friend-locked in order to maintain my first rights to publication, so if there are any lurkers who want to read them who are not on my flist, let me know and I will add you. If you're not on LJ at all, let me know and we'll work something out.
Past years' stories are here.
