Story Idea - Fit in one Halloween day…

All Hallows Eve brings up many visions and expectations from most. From little children to aged adults, this evening conjures many thoughts and pictures of the ghoulish, the spirit world, and the supernatural. What is you are one of those creatures. You know, the scary members of the night. The great part for you on this evening is that you can finally blend in with the others. You can finally have a normal life for one day. Your entire year is spent planning for this one day…planning for this one opportunity to be a part of something different…yet, the same. This night is an opportunity to see and experience new adventures. Unlike most days, there are only hours that you have not a complete 24. The missions will need to be limited to around 6 hours.

What can this creature accomplish during this brief time period? What type of creature –plays the part of the adventurer? Is it a vampire? A zombie? A spirit? A werewolf? Or, perhaps a new, yet to be identified ghoul? Why does the party-goer wish to just blend in? What does he/she hope to get out of the evening? Is there a series of Halloweens that can represent the attempts this entity makes to be a part of a different story? Could the stories be based on year and what has happened? Decide on your direction. Decide on the story and write. Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
