Speaking of "blood"...

Halloween contest prompt? This place has become a GHOST TOWN.

I'm figuring a literal or figurative take would work.

Mod edit: for posterity, the entries thread is here and the results thread is here.

Heeeey here we are in September already. Next thing you know, the damn leaves will be turning brown and falling to the ground, like the quitters they are.

The weeks are going to fly by and before you know it, we'll be trick or treating.

Halloween falls on a Tuesday. I wonder if it might be better to aim for submitting entries a week earlier, say the 23rd, so reading and voting can happen and the results can get announced on Halloween, rather than after the event.

DISCUSS.

How's that for a movie title? (or a contest title?)
