Melloween: Night of the Tweeting Dead Winners

Between Twitter and the board, we had people writing 140 character long horror micro-fiction. From twenty-five of those, people voted on their top five. Thanks to a tie, that turned into the top six. And these favorites of one line horror are:

Why I Hate The Stand

If you haven't read Stephen King's The Stand you should turn back now. Trust me. If you find out the ending prematurely, you are going to end up missing out on everything good in the novel and you won't be able to enjoy it the way you should. And yes, despite the fact that I hate it with every fiber of my being, it is a very enjoyable book.

Now then. Are we only left with people who are familiar with the story and probably think I have no taste for trashing it? Good.

Looks like the gales of November are coming early this year...

Chicago's bracing for what is may be the 2nd worst storm ever to hit the Great Lakes.

Yikes.

Melloween: Night of the Tweeting Dead

Is it possible to write a scary story in under 140 characters? We're about to find out.

Inspired by a discussion in chat last night, I decided to run a little Halloween writing contest. Write microfiction that's short enough to be a tweet and post it here. I'll stop accepting entries at 12:00 AM EDT Saturday, October 30th, at which point I'll pick my favorite entries for everyone to vote on. From that, you guys get to pick the top five that will go on the front page on Halloween.

If you decide to post your microfiction on Twitter, put the tag #nottd on it for Night of the Tweeting Dead so we can keep track. If you don't have a Twitter account, you can still play and just post your story in the thread.

You can enter as many times as you like.

You know the day has gotten away from you when ...

... you find yourself yelling 'FUCK YOU!!!' at pieces of paper.
