  1. Be sure and show us that your characters are scared by using their PHYSICAL REACTIONS.
  2. Build the MOOD of the story by choosing an appropriate SETTING or using WEATHER — or both.

STEP 5: ENTER THE GIVEAWAY

When you finish your story and polished it up to make it as good as it can be, go to the Contact page on my website: http://diannesalerni.com/contact/

Send me your finished version, and I will enter you in a giveaway for a free, autographed copy of Eleanor, Alice, & the Roosevelt Ghosts, to be mailed when the book comes out in September. The winner will be chosen by random on May 1, 2020.

I will contact the winner via the email address used to send me your story, so be sure to check with your teacher or parent on what email address to use! Good luck, and spooky writing!
