Halloweensie Writing Competition

With Halloween fast approaching it’s time to enter Susanna Hill’s Halloweensie Competition.

All you need to do is write a children’s story (100 words or less) that has the words broomstick, pumpkin and creak in it, post it on your blog and then submit the link to Susanna’s blog.

Here’s mine:

Miranda’s Broken Broomstick

“Eeeek!” screeched Miranda.  “My broomstick is broken!”

“Cast a spell and fix it,” suggested Aunt Marigold.

Miranda waved her magic wand.  “Squeak and squick, creak and crick, mend by broomstick, quick, quick, quick!”

Poof!   A double-decker bus appeared.

“I think you’ve muddled the spell,” said Aunt Marigold.  “Try it round the other way.”

Miranda waved her wand again. “Creak and crick, squeak and squick, mend by broomstick, quick, quick, quick!”

Poof!  A massive pumpkin coach appeared.

“Oops!” said Aunt Marigold.

“I love it!” shouted Miranda jumping in.  Then she high-tailed it down the road, her cackle echoing into the night.

  1. That was so cute and funny, Rachel. I think I would have taken off in the double Decker bus. I miss those being a British Ex-pat. I wonder if she ever got her broom back.

  2. Hahaha! I love Miranda’s mixed up spells, and I love that she’s just as happy with what she accidentally got as she would have been with her repaired broomstick! Way to go with the flow 🙂 Thanks so much for joining in the Halloweensie fun with this little delight! 🙂
