Write On, Writers! Writing Prompts for October

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

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 inspire you. Use these prompts to write a scene, short story, or maybe even the start of a new novel.

Your prompts for October:

How about a little horror this month?

  • Feature a jack-o-lantern in your story.
  • Use the words chill, mortal, and flame in a scene.
  • Reinvent your favorite urban legend with a scary twist.
  • Start a scene in a cemetery.
  • Write a story featuring an abandoned building, house, or hospital.

Prompts can be the perfect antidote to writer’s block, so… Ready. Set. Write on, writers!
