31 Days of Horror Prompts for October (#3)


Here we are at Day 3 of the Horror Writing Prompts for October. I’m really excited about the prompts that have been done so far! I’m going to try to mix things up a little today. We’ve done a scenario prompt, and a sentence prompt.

This time, I thought I’d let you guys go a little freeform on what you were writing about, and do a list prompt. Basically, this prompt works in the sense that I give you a list of 10 words. You can write a story with all of them if you’d like, but you have to use at least five words from the list. 

Night, Terror, Blood, Knife, Shadow, Monster, Darkness, Moonlight, Scream, Killer

So, there we go. There is your list of words. Use at least five of those words to write a story, poem, whatever.

Make sure to link back to this post, if you end up doing it! I’d love to post your responses up tomorrow so that everyone can see what you do!

This is a great way to practice getting in daily words, since NaNoWriMo is coming up so very soon! Make sure to stay tuned to my blog if you’re doing NaNo, because I’m going to be posting tips and tricks for a successful NaNoWriMo every Tuesday and Thursday!

Until next time guys!!! Keep reading and writing, and keep being absolutely awesome!
