A Call for Creepy Halloween Tweets

27 October 2010

Bestselling author and former Booker Prize judge Frank Delaney is hosting a Halloween Writing Challenge on Twitter. From Monday, October 25 to Wednesday, October 27, he’s challenging people to introduce the creepiest character possible in 140 creepy characters. Please enter! (Don’t forget to include the hash tag #FDcreepy in your tweet.) You just might win a secret creepy prize picked by Frank Delaney.

Full rules are here:  http://frankdelaney.com/twallenge/creepy/

As inspiration, Frank offers up a creepy character sketch: a handsome all-star athlete…but every time he opens his mouth to speak, ants pour out.

Frank Delaney is the best-selling author of “Ireland” and most recently “Venetia Kelly’s Traveling Show” and a former BBC broadcaster. He tweets daily writing tips at @FDbytheWord, and broadcasts “Re:Joyce” on his website and iTunes. It’s a free weekly podcast in which he goes line by line through James Joyce’s “Ulysses;” the project will take him an estimated 23 years.
Please enter the Halloween Writing Challenge as many times as you like, and get creepy!
