Spooktoberfest in 8 Days

This is the number of Spooktoberites we have for Spooktoberfest so far.
The number of days before the first day (Oct. 26th) of submissions is upon us.
These are the number of mandatory words, which should not be cursed at, but embraced and used creatively.

Requirements Refresher or in case you are New to this Blogefest:

1. Follow
Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and myself if you don’t already. We do follow back.
2. Your Flash Fiction piece cannot be any longer than 300 words. Sorry… that’s part of the challenge.
3. You must use the MANDATORY 5 words listed below…
4. Post your Flash Fiction piece any day from Friday Oct 26th thru Monday, Oct. 29th.
5. It’s a blog hop, so… hop around to other participating blogs and leave them some awesome comments.
6. Have fun.

Your flash fiction piece can be scary, comical, romantic, or whatever you choose, just be creative!

The winners will be posted on HALLOWEEN! That’s right, Wednesday, Oct. 31st. Jackie and I will each choose a winner. That’s right – two winners!

PRIZES: A grab bag and candy. The winners will get the biggest bags we can find of their favorite candy along with some spookified items – and we are not talking about some lame items here.

Oh, and yes, this blogfest is international. So what are you ghouls waiting for? Sign up using the Linkie Thing in the Spooktoberfest Page Tab or in the side bar and spread the word! You have no excuse NOT to sign up. We are everywhere!
If you could... try to tweet about it. Maybe even use the hastag #Spooktoberfest when bragging. It's not a requirement of course.
Between the days of Oct. 26 - Oct. 29 an easy way for us to know when you are finish - if you have a twitter account - is to tweet Jackie and I.

And don’t ask me if I have my piece done cuz I don’t. I’ve been sick. And I don’t mean I have this little cold; I mean I have this – I wanna rip my face off and scoop out the sludge – cold. For days and days and days all I’ve seen is sludge. Choking on sludge. Coughing on sludge. Can’t talk without wanting to hack up a lung with sludge. Need I go on? Plus … nothing is coming to me. I’ve got too much d@mn sludge in the way. If the Egyptians came to mummify me, they couldn’t get to my brain through my nose if they were using a needle nose pliers and a sledgehammer. I’ve been blowing my nose so hard; air is coming out of my eye sockets. No flippin’ joke. The sludge is backing up, its starting to come out of my eye. Cute, huh?

I will have it done in time. Like I said, I have 8 days.
