February 2019 Challenge - Cosmic Horror

Good evening and welcome.

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin. This month, I would like to see some short tales purely for the Love of the Craft... Howard Phillip Lovecraft, to be precise!

In a thousand words or less, unleash your inner writer of pulp horror. Give us tales that are both squamous AND rugose, tales of the creatures casting puppet shadows on the walls of reality, of the Great (or the merely Nifty) Old Ones

All tales to me by PM by midnight on the 16th, if you please...

I just had a good suggestion while looking at your post, probably the most useful way to end up with writing an entry for this Challenge... :D

Mine is already done, and I'm waiting for the usual suggestions/reviews before sending it in...

Re: February 2019 Challenge - Cosmic Horror

I may have an idea for one. Not sure if I can boil it down to fit the word limit.
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?

HeeHee...Lester, use emoji's... readers are evolving downward to where speech will be grunting and words will be replaced with pictures.

Re: February 2019 Challenge - Cosmic Horror

I spent some considerable time last night going through notebooks trying to find the material--an old abandoned novel project--to base this flash attempt on. Finally found it, but I learned something about how much I forget. I also am considering a new project, of transcribing that material, since it no longer exists in an electronic format. That way, I could at least find it again.

Just got mine in, right under the buzzer as usual. I can't wait to see all of the stories. Lovecraft is one of my favorite.
