“A Day on the Lake” A Horror Short Story Challenge on Vocal! #WritingCommunity #shortstory #challenge #horror #halloweenstory

I did my first short story fictional challenge over on Vocal. It was a Horror Fiction Challenge set by a body of water. How could I pass that up?

Here’s what I came up with. If you like it, please give it a heart and share if you can.

  1. Brilliant, Denise! Taut, intense writing which thoroughly captivated me! I was hooked and raced to the finish … I’ll approach lakes with caution from now on! 😀

    1. Thank you, Annika:) Glad to hear you liked it. I never did like the fact I couldn’t see the bottom of a lake.

    1. LOL! I still enjoy lakes to swim in, but I’m careful not to touch the bottom once I get in…

      1. I have heard of many spooky stories, several are from friends’ personal experiences. I’ll have to pick up my courage to write them someday, Denise.

  2. What a story, Denise! When I first began reading, I had no clue where the story was going but I was hooked. Very well done!

  3. I loved this story and added my 💗 when it first went public. Somehow, I missed your blog post though. I’m sending big belated hugs. 🤗
