Welcome from the Clear Creek Writers of Shelbyville, KY!

Let the great experiment begin! This blog is the landing spot for the Clear Creek Writers of Shelbyville, Kentucky in conjunction with out 2010 writing project: Kentucky Fight Fiction.

No, we don't all write horror or ghost stories but every year we have a Halloween story contest and this year we will be doing readings locally in October and selling our chapbook - Kentucky Fright Fiction - so we've created this group participation blog to share ideas, writing exercises, to encourage each other and any other writers who stop in.

Welcome... prepare to be frightened... and to do some writing (the scariest prospect of all!)
