The contest costs $5, and usually she joins in, too, but she's currently saving all the money she makes to replace her phone. So she just used the prompt to write her own story.
And. It. Was. Awesome.
She felt a bit bummed that she didn't enter since the fall prompts are always decidedly more spooky than the other seasons....and she's very good at writing spooky things.
Still. We had lots of fun together and drank our first pumpkin-spiced drinks of the season.
