Halloweensie Writing Contest 2019

Happy Hallowe’en!

Yes, it’s that time of year again. It’s time for the Halloweensie writing contest! Yay!

This year’s challenge, as taken from Susanna Leonard Hill’s website, is: “…write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (children here defined as 12 and under) (title not included in the 100 words), using the words potion, cobweb, and trick.” You can read all the rules if you click here.

Read on for my submission.

A Hairy Potion 

Celia had missed class and had borrowed Melinda’s notes for the animal making potion. She threw in a handful of cobwebs.

Celia frowned as she read the next ingredient. 

Hair fur

Hair fur? What was that?

Her hair wasn’t furry, but it would have to do. Celia pulled out one of her own hairs and threw it into the potion.

Poof! Another Celia stood next to her, blinking.

The teacher chuckled. “The trick to making this animal potion is to put in h-a-r-e fur.”

Celia laughed. “Melinda!”

“Sorry, Celia, you know my spelling isn’t good!”
