Roasted Entrails and New Contest

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies. Pop over and see what I’m talking about. Go ahead–I double-dog dare you!

black turtleneck with fall leavesNancy Williams, the science fiction writer, is having a Halloween party and invited us to tell her our trick, our treat, and our costume (her costume is WAY cool!). Here’s what I said:

I’m wearing brown pants, a turtleneck with a pattern of autumn leaves and, around my neck, a bundle of twigs tied together with strips of flannel. What am I?

My trick is, inside the bundle of sticks are cello-wrapped caramels.

My treat is this short-short story.

Nancy guessed Wood Nymph, which is incorrect.

Hey! –YOU guess! Correct guess wins your choice of Team Micah or Team Coalition button. Go on–guess! Post your guess in the comment section of this blog. Even if you think someone else has guessed correctly, post your guess.

WRITING PROMPT: Trick, treat and costume–what are they for some of your main characters, or what would they be if your characters lived in a place/time that had light-hearted Halloween fun?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
