The very lovely Dani and Jackie over at Entertaining Interests and Bouquet of Books respectively are currently hosting Spooktoberfest. Basically, its a spooky 300 word piece of flash fiction with five mandatory words which are: Ghost, Cobweb, Jack o'lantern, Cauldron and Razor. Sounds simple you might think, but you would be wrong! My first pass at this came in at 450 words and it was murder to cut it down. I hope you enjoy.
