Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #2 Entries.

Here are the rest of the flash fiction entries in the order received: Untitled by Chris Ludke. How did I get here? Being lost is normal for me because I move around so much. I often wake up and ask myself, “Where the hell am I?” It’s not a scary feeling. I’m also lost when driving. One time I was trying to find my … Read More Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #2 Entries.

Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #2 Winner.

Last week’s prompt for Horror House Wednesday was the following: “Where is your reality? Do you know where you are?” And the responses did not disappoint. It’s always hard to choose, especially when they’re all such great stories. All of them utilized the prompt in such an innovative way, but alas, I only can choose one as the winner. I chose 37297 by Just … Read More Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #2 Winner.

Horror House Wednesday Flash Fiction Contest #2

Hello and welcome back! We are on week number two of the Horror House Flash Fiction Contest. I’m hoping that we’ll get double the participation this time around, but the turnout from last week was still fantastic.  This week’s prompt is this: “Where is your reality? Do you know where you are?” I found this old thing while deleting useless clutter on my laptop. Do … Read More Horror House Wednesday Flash Fiction Contest #2

Story Collaboration Notice and Reminder: Who wants to write Chapter 13?

Hello everyone. I hope all is well today. How are you doing? I’d love to know. So… To the point of this: This is essentially a post looking for a participant to write chapter 13 in our story collaboration. I’ve yet to receive a claim on the chapter, and as time passes, the collaboration is closer to the end. Here are the previous chapters … Read More Story Collaboration Notice and Reminder: Who wants to write Chapter 13?

Story Collaboration: Chapter 12 Posted. Who wants to write Chapter 13? (Has yet to be claimed!)

Hello and welcome back to the Little Writing Workshop of Horrors Story Collaboration Edition. I decided to write chapter 12 since the story seemed to be reverting back to a hiatus, and I wanted to get the ball rolling so it wouldn’t be on the back burner… I also wanted to chip in again. Can you blame me? I did happen to say when … Read More Story Collaboration: Chapter 12 Posted. Who wants to write Chapter 13? (Has yet to be claimed!)

“The Rainbow Room” by ikwords.

I turn and proceed to the next one, a small two-story house on the corner. The rich forest-green walls are caked with grimy mud at the bottom. I move forward dexterously, and soon I am through the door, my gun held up in front of me. “Team 294 present. By the New Law, you must show yourself,” I recite, scanning the room for signs … Read More “The Rainbow Room” by ikwords.

Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #1 Winner.

Well, this was not an easy decision. Quite honestly, once upon a time, I was against the idea of holding contests here because I never like having to just pick one entry as a winner. It’s akin to picking a favorite candy—there isn’t just one in mind, is there? Last week’s prompt was a quote (originating from my WIP, funny enough, that I thought … Read More Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #1 Winner.

Next Collaborative Project Poll.

Hello everyone. I hope all is well. Due to the amazing responses and suggestions I received when I asked what projects could be done in the future, I created a poll of them for you to vote on. I didn’t expect it myself to release such a poll this early on, but I figured the Story Collaboration is nearing the halfway mark, and it … Read More Next Collaborative Project Poll.

Horror House Wednesday: Flash Fiction Contest #1

A few days ago, I asked for some suggestions on how to improve my website, along with what features I should add. One immediate feature I’m adding today is a weekly flash fiction contest as suggested by Silver Stone due to the lack of not prompts (there are sea urchins worth of them in the WordPress sea) but rather flash fiction contests. For those … Read More Horror House Wednesday: Flash Fiction Contest #1

Story Collaboration: Chapter 11 Posted. Who wants Chapter 12 & 13? (No claims on it yet!)

Hello and welcome back to the Little Writing Workshop of Horrors Story Collaboration Edition. We are now up to chapter 11 in this story (which you can read below). Now, here’s my question: Who wants to claim chapter 12 and 13? Separate authors, preferably. 😉 Regarding the latter number, I’d like to think that 13 is special, especially for the horror genre. So bring … Read More Story Collaboration: Chapter 11 Posted. Who wants Chapter 12 & 13? (No claims on it yet!)

Question for you.

Hello everyone! How are you doing today? I had a little thought on my mind, and thoughts are pretty cheap, so here are my pennies worth of them: I was thinking how I could create more events or even opportunities on this blog. With the story collaboration I’m hosting (currently ongoing for the next few months), I would like to hear back from you … Read More Question for you.

Story Collaboration: Chapter 10 Posted. Chapters 11 and 12 claimed.

Hello and welcome back to the Little Writing Workshop of Horrors Story Collaboration Edition. We’re already up to chapter ten (which you can read below!) and we’ve come so far from chapter one. This story has really evolved. Due to how far it has evolved, I realize we may be looking at a pretty large story, one that may extend into many chapters; this … Read More Story Collaboration: Chapter 10 Posted. Chapters 11 and 12 claimed.
