Romance Weekly with a Spooky Twist #lovewritechat

RW Banner

If you’ve just joined from the brilliant Sarah Hegger, author of Sweet Bea, then welcome!

This week’s hop has taken a bit of a spooky turn with Halloween fast approaching!

We were challenged to tell a scary story in 300 words or less.

Horror is not my forte, but it was a great challenge to try out a new genre πŸ˜€ I hope you enjoy it!

Alone in the middle of the stark forest, Susie stared out between the bones of the trees, the bare trunks grey from the cold.
Her abandoned and very dead car sat a few paces away, the fading sunlight gleaming on its red bonnet.
β€œNow what?” she muttered, her phone beeping the fact it had no signal.

A heavy breath plumed to an icy fog before her and Susie shuddered.

The breath had not been hers.

So there we go, a (mildly) spooky story to get everyone in the Halloween mood! Now go see what scary treats Xio Axelrod has in store next πŸ˜€

Have you written any spooky tales? Do you enjoy Halloween stories?

  1. Nice work Mishka! I don’t think I’ve tried to pen a spooky story…I may try one of these days. Also, I tagged you in a social media tag on my blog! Hope you can do it. πŸ™‚

  2. OHMYGOD Mishka! For someone who doesn’t write scary stuff that was GREAT! Totally gave me that oh crap feeling when I read it wasn’t her breath!
