There is a fun story-writing challenge that many fiction writers participate in at this time of year – the very short, very creepy story challenge. By very short, I mean only two sentences long! Will you accept this month's writing challenge?
1. Add a new blog post. Use the title "Writing Challenge: My Terrifying Two-Line Tale(s)".
2. Write a scary/creepy story that has a beginning, middle, and end, but only uses two sentences. Give your story a title.
3. Publish your story and share a link here. (If you want to write more than one story, add your other stories to the same post. Make sure your readers know that each story is different. Give each story a new title.) We will tweet the best very short and creepy stories on @EnglishClub.
4. Read other terrifying tales and add comments for the bloggers.
Note: Please, please, please do NOT copy a two-line creepy story that you found online. That is not fun! If we get enough submissions, I will place them all in one Creepy Collection.
The Wrong Floor
I entered the empty elevator from the basement level and chose the 13th floor. As the door shut in front of me, a voice behind me whispered, "Going down?"
UPDATE: Thank you for ALL of your entries this month. Your stories are terrifying and creative! If you used more than two lines in your story, you may have received an extra challenge from me in the comments of your post (you may have tried to get away with clever punctuation ... or you may have written run-on sentences or you may have written too many lines). Please accept my challenge and send me a private message to let me know that you have made some changes that you want me to check.
