Hold your own Halloween Story contest. It is easy to do and can be a great addition to your party or other Halloween event. If you have out-of-state family members you know will be absent from the party, this is great activity to include them in on the fun.
- Send out a sheet of paper with the opening sentence of a story to your party invitees or group. The sentance should be spookily suggestive, but allow for plenty of latitude in where the story might go.
- Ask them addressee to finish the story and bring it with them to the party (or mail it to you by the party date if they cannot be there).
- The stories are read aloud at the party.
- Prizes may be given (for scariest, funniest, etc.), or not. The real fun is in reading everyone’s story.
Some example opening sentances:
- Ultra-generic: "It was a dark and stormy night . . ."
- Character specific: "Jack liked spiders . . ."
- Themed: "There is a legend many of the old folks of Penskiwat still claim actually happened . . ."
- Tension: "Hurry, pass me the rope before it gets any closer . . ."
P.S. This would also work well in a classroom as a creative writing assignment.
