It was a dark and stormy night. The wind was howling. Tree branches knocked at your bedroom window…
But it’s Halloween, and you are putting on your costume and going trick-or-treating, no matter what! Suddenly you hear footsteps in the hallway. You hear the floor creak as someone moves closer and closer. Slowly, your bedroom door opens…. “MOM!” you scream. “You scared me!”
Your mom gives you a crazy look. “I just came in to tell you about the Spooky Story Contest,” she says. “Georgia Writers Museum is announcing the winners tomorrow.”
You stop dead in your tracks. You submitted a story, but it was weeks ago. Could you be the winner?!
