Writers, sharpen your uhm... keyboards, It's time for our December Short Story Contest!
This time around, our SUMMERS END Contest winner SLAYER69 has chosen the theme:

"SCARIEST CHRISTMAS CAROL"



All Short Story entries for this contest should be based around that theme or contain specific reference to "The Scariest Christmas Carol" within the storyline itself.

How you do that is, of course, up to You!

Video and Audio (spoken word) submissions are not acceptable this time around.
Photos and BBcode Editing most certainly are allowed.

Rules Of Entry:

The contest will run from NOW to Thurs 29th December 2016.
(Any submissions after that date will be disqualified.)

A period of ONE WEEK after the closing of the contest will be provided for voting, and winners will be announced some time in the New Year.

All ATS T&C's Apply.

All entries MUST include [SCC2016] in the title.

All entries must be linked in this thread, and please include [writer] or [non-writer] in your submission post within this thread.

There is no minimum or maximum character count, and the entry can be submitted over one or more posts, but please bear in mind that it is a SHORT STORY contest!

Gordi - forgive my ignorance - "must contain specific reference to 'the Scariest Christmas Carol'"
Does it just need to contain those words, or is "The Scariest Christmas Carol" actually a thing - like an actual book, movie, or, I dunno, a carol?

As far as I know... it's not a specific thing or book shep.
So, let your imagination run wild.... and create the Scariest one in your head... then include it (or refer to it) in your story!
