My First Writing Competition

So, I decided to participate in a writing competition this past month. I’ve never done anything like this before. From the day I entered, I had 23 days to write a horror story that had to have something to do with Halloween. I was up against 11 other writers. The result was a fun story idea and tons of exhaustion and anxiety.

The stories were judged by three veteran creepypasta (ie, short horror fiction posted on the internet) writers. Stories were scored based on: execution, originality, scare factor, and grammar/spelling.

Drumroll, please. My story, Doorway to Serenity, tied for first place!!

Everyone did such a fantastic job! If you have the time and inclination, check out the other entries here. My story will be narrated on youtube in the near future (one of the prizes for first place), so keep an eye on my narrations list.

Sweet dreams!
