write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (children here defined as 12 and under) (title not included in the 100 words), using the words candy corn, monster, and shadow. (Candy corn will be counted as 1 word.) Your story can be scary, funny, or anything in between, poetry or prose, but it will only count for the contest if it includes those 3 words and is 100 words (you can go under, but not over!) Here is the link to the contest::

I want to be an elbow for Halloween.
What's scary about an elbow? What does an elbow do?

Let's dress as monsters. All your friends will be dressed as monsters.
Ok, then I'll be a candy corn.
What's scary about candy corn? Everyone will eat you up.
I'll hide in the shadow of the corn stalk.
Perfect! I can be the cornstalk. You can jump out and scare everyone.
And the creaking, bending elbow will be the scariest Halloween costume ever!
I'll be the monster.
