Okay, I added the bragging rights. They're not official. But I think they should be.
- The prestigious Don Knotts Golden Donut Award (sponsored by the High Point North Carolina Public Library and Krispy Kreme).
- Bragging rights.
The rules are relatively simple:
1) All stories must be based on this photograph:
2) All stories must be 200 words. No more, no less. This includes the title.
3) Lest you think the competition is looking for stories in the Don Knotts/Barney Fife vein, be sure to read this part carefully: ...take us on a journey that’d scare the pants off Poe himself. Did I just hear a scream coming from inside. Has someone been murdered? Or, was it the howl of a troubled spirit? Perhaps, a killer is using the old house as a hideout. Maybe, vampires live there. Who knows?
So get writing. There could be a Golden Donut Award in your future. Or mine!
