Well, she really showed me up writing and illustrating a fabulously scary story in about 20 minutes.
It all started with this:
(Oh the tension!!)
(AGH!!! It's a ghost!)
"Are you nice?"
"Well, my name is Friendy, so yeah."
"What are you doing here?"
"I'm getting ready to play with my new best friend!"
Wow! Look how easy that is! Tension! Complex emotion! Fully fleshed characters! All in 38 words. And I thought this was hard:) Happy Halloween!
PS. OH NO! I am a failure of a mother. I gave the dear LAST YEAR'S CONTEST WORDS!! Mulligan.
