Four weeks have passed in the I Made the Darkness Halloween writing contest. Four entries have won videos of their stories on AuthorTrope's YouTube channel. That means that there are only four more weekly winner spots available. We are halfway through the contest, and we have seen entries from all over the world. Each story different, entertaining, and new.
This week's winner is Chris D. Price for his entry, The Creeper Man. Sometimes we find our perfect home. A place that is supposed to protect us from the dangers of the world. However, sometimes that home can become oppressive, and frightening. Chris's story articulates the terror of a home turned inside-out.
October is near. Now we enter the season of Halloween. The eclipse heralded the opening to the gates of the underworld with bloody red splendor. This time, when the veil is at its thinnest, we will see stories inspired from the depths of fear itself. The primordial fright of the unknown and delight at the strange. Life and death meet on solemn union. Mankind fears the unknown, and there is no greater unknown that what is beyond, or its motivations.
Who will win the contest? Who will claim the mantle of The Maker of Darkness? That is up to you. Each weekly winner will receive a video of their story on my YouTube channel. Vote on your favorite story by giving its video a thumbs-up. The video with the highest number of thumbs-up will win the contest.
