Everyone reading is going to be expecting a twist or surprise, so the trick is to make that twist so wide open it could be anything. Or so out of left field it knocks the reader out. And not cheesy.

I think I hate this challenge, lol. I keep thinking I'm clever and keep getting reminded it's all in my head.

Consider it brought. Me speak real good:0

So looking forward to this. I could read 30 entries of 1-2 pages. With the genre, there could be quite the spectrum of little tales.

Everyone is so hung up on delivering a twist, which is near impossible in just two pages. Don't forget, you can also choose to shock your audience, OR provide a sting in the tail.


WITCH HUNT - horror, 77 pgs

THE 1997 TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE - horror, 82 pgs

HERE COMES THE BOGEYMAN - horror, 24 pgs

Submitted.  That's about all I can say at this point.  I had to spray Febreze on my keyboard, it stunk so bad.


An utterly mediocre writer who somehow still falls bass ackwards into getting some of his scripts produced.

Hang on can I just double check on the cheese rules as I'd not spotted this in the criteria and I'm banjaxed if cheese isn't allowed!

The frolicking feline phrenologist was actually a dog in a cat suit this whole page and a half! And after a mild electrical shock, she got a beesting in the tail.

How hard is this?

How dare you! I demand you take that back.

Just because it has a 232-year shelf life and could function as an apocalyptic alternative power source doesn't make it less of a cheese.
