It’s that time…
We all need a little inspiration sometimes, so on the first Monday of every month, we’ll post a series of writing prompts intended to motivate you. Use these prompts to write a scene, short story, or maybe even the start of a new novel.
Your prompts for October:
Pumpkins, campfires, hayrides, and Halloween. October is the most fall-like month of the fall! The spooky theme of the season can provide plenty of inspiration for our stories. Here are some prompts to help kick your creativity into gear.
- Use the words spice, crimson, and pumpkin pie in a scene.
- Reinvent your favorite urban legend with a scary twist.
- On October 30, 1938, Orson Welles broadcast the story War of the Worlds, panicking millions of people who thought it was real. Use the idea of a fictional broadcast to start your novel.
- Feature a modern-day witch trial in your story.
- Abandoned buildings can provide food for the imagination! Kick your scene off in an old hospital, factory, house, or asylum.
Prompts can help kick-start our creative process, so… Ready. Set. Write on, writers!
