OCTOBER WRITE AWAY CONTEST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a really cool contest going on over at Mother Hood In Alaska's
The theme for the month will be "Things That Scare Me." This could be anything from the mold in your bathroom to the worries you may have as a parent, but share with us what scares and frightens you, what keeps you up at night.
Write a post or find one in your archives about things that scare you and email your post's permalink to me at: scribbit at any time through Wednesday October 17th. If you fail to meet the October 17th deadline I will still happily publish the link to your post and include it in the list of entries but it will not be judged. I reserve the right to reject submissions if they fail to meet the topic or if they contain objectionable content.

2. Publish a link to the contest page here at Scribbit in either your entry post or in a separate post.

3. Check back here on Friday October 19th when I will post a complete list of the entries along with the Write-Away Winner and any honorable mentions our judge sees fit to award.

Our guest judge this month is Shalee from Shalee's Diner who, far from being a terrifying person is an absolute sweetie, and will judge the entries based on the quality of writing, the applicability to the topic and the overall ability to engage (or scare) the reader.

The prize you're writing for is a collection of brand new mystery, crime and thriller novels. Last week I attend Bouchercon 2007, the world's biggest mystery writers convention where writers, editors and fans gathered to talk about the genre and learn from the masters. Diana Gabaldon, Robert S. Levinson, James Sallis, Otto Penzler, the big names were all there and they gave out a lot of cool stuff. I have fourteen new mystery stories as this month's prize (let's hope you like to be thrilled!) including:



What scares me the most is the realization of all the danger's in the world now and all the abuse.Every time you turn on the tv or the radio,you hear of someone who has killed another,stolen a child ,abuse in all forms and our rights being taken away more and more to protect our homes and families.We are taking God out of everything and wonder why our nation seems to be falling apart.
I grew up in a home in rural alabama(where i still live).Sometime's the door was locked at night,sometimes not.We sat at the table and said grace before each meal,taught please & thank you , yes sir ,no sir,mam etc.We learned at a very young age to work and do your best at all you do.You worked for what you wanted,not steal it.
I look around now and i see young people shooting other children ,16 year old's going to jail for stealing.Little babies being abused and murdered by the very hands that should be tucking them in at night and wiping away the tears they cry.
We abort millions of unborn children yearly and we don't even want to acknowledge they are even alive under the name of choice.Thousand's of children are stolen yearly,and a high percentage are brutally killed after their captor's are through ''having their fun''.Drugs and alcohol are destroying families and killing mom's and dad's.A broken family is the norm now.
This scares me badly when i look in the eyes of my grandkid's and see into a small part of their future lives.What will it be like in 20 years,30 years..
I can't say that much anything scares me ,like animals,and things that go thump in the night..I love halloween and the fright of the ''boogers'' and the kids.
But what i fear only grows stronger each and every day.A world without LOVE.

When my first daughter was born I just couldn't get over the feeling of fear that such a wonderful creation could have been born into such different circumstances. Each time one of my kids has been born I can't help but think of all the other children out there that aren't as lucky and I wish I could mother them all . . .

I know the feeling! it breaks my heart when i see a child who has never known love .Babies are to be loved..they are a gift.
thanks for the comment.

I've had moments where I wished for the end of the world just so that my children could avoid all that you mention. Then I look at them and my wish changes to one of hope that they will help make it better.
