The Dare

I’m early this week! Yippee! Thank you as always to Rochelle for hosting Friday Fictioneers!

Since “paranormal” seems to be winning in my NaNoWriMo poll (see here), I thought I’d better start practicing.

The Dare

Me afraid? Just because it’s Halloween, pitch-black, and the wind slides leaves like skeletal feet on concrete, and I’m alone in the haunted castle? Noooooo. Continue reading

However, I didn’t read much of any of the books I was supposed to read. Ketchup time! Continue reading
