“It was a dark and stormy night…”

Few scenes set the stage for scary happenings like a dark and stormy night, as was the case in Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s Paul Clifford. We’re in a frightfully spooky mood here at Mozy and would love to hear your scary computer tales as part of our Halloween contest. Join the fun for a chance to win one of four $50 gift cards!

To participate, write your best (fiction or non-fiction) conclusion to one of the following opening sentences, then send your entry to contest@mozy.com by Thursday, October 27, 2011:

  • It was dark, despite the full moon, as he made his way to the library with laptop in hand…
  • She was in the middle of reading her friend’s blog when she heard a sound…
  • The laptop sat open on the table…

Stories must be 200 words or less and will be judged on creativity, originality, scariness, and Mozy-ness. Winners will be announced on the Mozy blog on Halloween—October 31, 2011. One entry per person, please.
