Horror Takes No Holidays: The 2012 Wicked Women Writers Challenge Assignments

This morning I stepped up to my talking fortune-telling calendar and asked the big question.  Will the 2012 Wicked Women Writers Challenge be a success?  Then I pressed the two answer-request buttons.

“Your heart’s desire is manifesting as we speak,” said Carma the Wise.

“You’re in luck,” Dr. Fortune agreed.

Carma and Dr. Fortune don’t always hand out such positive predictions.  Needless to say, their comments made my day.  WICKED WOMEN WRITERS ROCK, and even my wall calendar knows it.

Here’s the list of story assignments for the 2012 Wicked Women Writers Challenge.
