Walk The Plank is all about writing Flash Fiction - in other words, short snippets that make the biggest impact. And the goal: Write a flash fiction story in 200 words or fewer, excluding the title, around the monthly theme.

This month's Walk The Plank theme is...

Ghost Stories!

That's right. It's October, the month of ghosts, ghouls, and creepy stories, just in time for Halloween! 

If you think you're up for the challenge, all you need to do is write a short flash fiction story in 200 words or fewer, excluding the title, around our ghost story theme.

For an extra challenge, begin your story with the words:

"It was a cold Halloween night"

Those six words will be included in your word count. 

For an even bigger challenge, end your story with the words:

 "I screamed."

Those two words will also be included in your word count. 

For extra bonus points, complete the above AND make your story exactly 200 words!

Don't forget to post your Flash Fiction submission on your blog then come back and share a link to your submission in the comments below!
