Well, the inclusion of the Horror genre is enticing me to write pretty dark stuff; my entry's as pleasant as a root canal. But it was, strangely, fun to write.
Looking forward to reading all entries later in the month, CC

Nice theme and genre, Mad Alice - makes me wish I was still participating.

Just had a quick peek at some of the stories so far.

Note to newer members: Remember not to 'like' stories in the challenge thread.

Good luck.

I got my story in.

I was a little bit busy with getting another story ready to be posted. It's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. I put it through the equivalent of a spellchecker and that was it. All I had time for. So that's done.

Now I have to work on the 300-word story.

@Calliopenjo .... The Haunted House .... Calli writes a horror story that makes us wonder about the line between bravery and stupidity in people.

@stormcrow .... A Trip To "The D Word" .... Crow puts the truth out there in a way best described as non-compliant in a society recommended torture.

@Bagpuss .... No title as yet .... Baggy writes a tale of death and rebirth, of a sort.

(Bagpuss, in your story I misread the last word by trading the "r" for a "t" which totally changes the tone of the story.)

@mosaix .... And The Neighbours Are Quite Nice... Mosaix puts a whole new twist on the definition of bedtime stories.


Parson feels like he's the only one here lately. Any discussion people?
