Group-Sponsored 3rd Annual Father’s Day Horror Contest
The First Three Sentences group invites you to show us your horror stories for Father’s Day 2023.
Write a story up to 1,000 words using that photo you see in the upper left hand corner as a prompt. The prompt is inspiration only, all the elements in the photo do not have to be included in the story.
No adult labels or gratuitous gore, please. Just make the hairs on the back of Dad’s neck stand up.
The First Three Sentences group is all about great beginnings. But don’t worry about that now, we want to see an entire story up to 1,000 words. If you try to impress us with a drabble, make sure they are exactly 100 words not including the title, and let us know you intend for it to be a drabble.
Now, Boo! Get writing.
