Halloweensie Contest

I’m participating in Susanna Leonard Hill’s 9th Annual Halloweensie Writing Contest. 

The rules are simple, write a story using 100 words or less. You must use some form of the words – Potion, Cobweb, and Trick. Stories must be appropriate for children 12 years and under. Sounds easy, right? Wrong. It’s a challenge, but it’s fun.

Here’s my story…

A Zombie Girl Halloween

Halloween party, come one, come all,
Zombie Girl stood straight and tall.

Wearing baggy, boogie pants,
it was tricky to dance her dance.

“Zombie Girl, you look silly,
dressed in pants, lacey and frilly.”

Zombie Girl dropped her head,
sat in a corner pouting instead.

Spotting a sign, she knew what to do,
Magic potion, to feel brand new.

Spooky bubbles in a glass,
Filled high, make it last.

Zombie juice spills on toes,
Covered with cobwebs, hold your nose.

One, two, Zombie feet move,
three, four, dance to a groove.

Zombie Girl loves to dance,
especially wearing frilly pants.
