It's amazing how those movies make us feel. I was a huge horror buff for many years. I liked the Alein series. Now, not so much. I love the way you centered this story. I'll try that on my next piece of flash.
Good luck in the contest!
Have a great day, and God bless.
You did a very good job in relating your fear in this superb write, Joanne. I could feel your fright oozing through your words. This is a lovely entry for the prompt and I know you will do well. Good luck.
Your story depicts much of what we all go through. I loved horror movies in those days, as well, but you'll never get me to watch one now. It's good to wean the scary things out of your life, knowing what you truly enjoy.
I don't watch any scary movies for the same reason you gave, Joanne. While the movies are fake, the nightmares they cause are real. You did a good job with your contest entry. I could see you peeking through your fingers and running past the graveyard into your house Thanks for sharing and best wishes.
