Hey, just a heads up that a couple of new writers have written contest entries, but they haven't posted the links in this thread.
I'm seriously tired and about to log off, so don't think I could properly explain the linking procedure at this point, lol.

Maybe look for them when you're online, and let them know how to link them from here.
I don't want anyone's stories to get lost in the shuffle because I've read them and they're really good.

thanks,
jacy

Since we have some time yet, I just might be able to come up with something for this contest. Not sure about that though, but, we'll see. Wishing everyone luck in their writing endeavors!

Hi knowledgehunter! That is a great title!!

Make sure you put YJA2017 in your title. If it's too late to edit it, maybe tothetenthpower will help you with it.

Looking forward to reading it!

Death Became Me - YJA2017 - Non Writer

Oh god, not again, was the focus of my brain. Regular sleep paralysis episodes over the last three months, at least occurring once a week had increased to every second night. Same position, on my back, eyes open, difficult to breath, like a weight upon my chest. Body was numb.

I could hear the light breathing of my wife and see the reflection of the waning moon outside through the window opposite the bed. I’d learnt not to panic and at times had managed a groan which would alert my sleeping partner on occasions. Other times I would allow myself to drift off to sleep and wake up fine.

This time was different though. I felt increasing pressure on my chest and really thought I heard a chuckle. Darkness loomed. A shadow appeared to block out the mild moonlight and I had a notion that someone was pouring black ink over my face and into my nostrils. I had no gag reflex, I made no noise. My mind panicked, I wasn’t breathing. It was impossible to suck air! I felt some chest pain but that slowly dissipated.

Lighting suddenly flashed through across what I perceived to be my focus. My thoughts, “#e, it’s really got me this time.” I had no body now just my thoughts. A floating sensation struck me and could discern a small light. I willed my mind towards the starry glow. I stopped short and visioned what appeared to be similar to looking through a key hole into a dim room. I saw the moonlight bathing our bed. I could not hear anything but could see my wife appearing to perform CPR on my body. The light suddenly got brighter. I saw my daughter, one hand in hair and appearing to yell into her cell phone in the other. No sound.

A clear deep voice spoke to me. Like a tap on the shoulder it said, “Now I’ve found you, you’re coming with me.” The ink poured into my nostrils, the light waned. I felt my mind struggling. “No, I’m not going.” I saw the dark shape. Evil. A black cloak or cape overcame the remaining light.

My mind screamed “NO! I won’t go!” Terrible thumping pressure struck again, pain with each thump, upon my chest, I attempted to scream with all my might and literally felt my body alive again. Bright light..”ARGHH” and I pushed the pressure away from my chest. I heard a crash and my daughter screaming. “Dad!” I was back in bed, sitting up, lights on. I could see my beautiful daughter crying and sobbing while calling out “dad, dad” repeatedly. My wife looked up from over the back of the bed. Her face was bloodied. I’d thrown her off my chest and out of the bed. I’d lived through this latest episode thanks to her. THE END.

kind regards,

bally

I am sorry, I forgot to include non-writer in my thread, i put a post in tho. I can't edit it anymore. I used to have to have the writer title, but I was bad once and it was taken away.

Whaaaat? The title can be taken away??
(where is the emoticon for "Oh the horror!"?)

I've just opened all the new stories in separate tabs, so am off to read. Happy to see so much participation!

If I'm being succinct then I haven't had enough coffee.
Unintelligible is my usual state.

Great writing so far everybody!! If I've missed anyone's story, please send me a link in my mailbox.
