Flash Fiction Challenge!

Alright, its Flash Fiction Time! For those of you who haven’t the faintest idea of what I’m talking about: Flash Fiction is a pretty awesome way to keep writers of every degree on his or her little piggies. You basically get assigned a topic, at random, ┬áin which to write a short story, usually consisting of around a 1000 words. Then you start typing. and watching your magic unfold. It always amazes me to see the direction you go with your topic, the story truly blossoms.

Okay, so, I get my Flash Fiction Challenges from Chuck Wendig, at Terribleminds. Picking from a list of 20 random sub-genres, I randomly selected to write a Fairy tale involving an alien invasion. I do have to admit that I’m pretty excited about seeing how this story unfolds. If you guys would like to take a stab at the challenge , check out the post here:

TOTD: What’s Your Favorite Horror Novel?

First, I would like to thank the people who followed my blog so quickly after its debut! It means the world to know that I stroked someone’s fancy out there. Now, the Topic of the Day…

As I sit here, about to watch American Horror Story: Coven (and after a binge watching of various horror classics), I have to admit that I’m feeling quite ghoulishly festive. So, I decided to dedicate my posts for the next week to the great All Hallow’s Eve: Halloween. Let’s kick this celebration off with a little poll from my fellow readers and writers. I am going to borrow this idea from the great Chuck Wendig, author and blogger at terribleminds.com (excellent writing and topics ,check it out), and ask you guys out there, “What’s your favorite horror author and/or novel”?

Okay, I have to be honest in saying that I have not been up to par on my horror readings lately. Hell, I think the last time I truly indulged was in the 9th grade when my fascination for Anne Rice novels burned as bright as the sun that led to most of her beloved vampires’ demise.

That’s why I need your beautiful minds to grace me with your thoughts on the subject, so that I can find an awesome, spooky read to truly get in the spirit of things before it’s too late!

Oh yeah, don’t forget to tell us what it is about your choices that does it for you. Spare no expense on the juicy details.
