Fall Writing Frenzy 2020

Updated: Oct 30, 2020

The title is apt as I just launched my website and I am on a writing frenzy. I entered this contest earlier but getting around to posting it now. The contest entailed submitting a 200-word story inspired by images posted for the contest. It's run by Lydia Lukidis and author agent Kaitlyn Sanchez, you can find more details here.

And Then There Were None


Rozana Rajkumari

Wc 176



Ten little trick o’ treaters went out in a line;

The shadow claimed one and then there were Nine.

Nine little trick o’ treaters jumped across a gate;

One got impaled and then there were Eight.

Eight little trick o’ treaters found a raven;

It poked one’s eyes out and then there were Seven.

Seven little trick o’ treaters playing tricks;

One got spooked and then there were Six.

Six little trick o’ treaters went for a drive;

One got crushed and then there were Five.

Five little trick o’ treaters going out for more;

One choked on the candy and then there were Four.

Four little trick o’ treaters passing by the cemetery;

One stayed behind and then there were Three.

Three little trick o’ treaters making a brew;

One fell in the hot cauldron and then there were Two.

Two little trick o’ treaters hiding in an oven;

One was overdone and then there was One.

One little trick o’ treater left all alone;

He walked off a cliff and then there were None.
