31 Days of Horror Prompts for October (#5)


It’s already the 5th of October, can you believe it! We’re sinking into the month rather quickly, which means that NaNoWriMo is approaching fast and faster! Honestly, I’m extremely excited about it! As usual, I’m going to give you guys your daily writing prompt now – I thought I’d switch it up a little bit again! ❤ This time, we’re going to go for some musically inspired writing!

Write about a creepy doll/mannequin, using this music as your theme.

So, there we go! We have some musical inspiration, as well as a general theme of what the story should be about. You certainly don’t have to write for the full length of the video, though if you want to write for an hour and see what you can come up with… that would be pretty cool.

I personally can’t wait to see what you guys come up with for this, because I’m actually pretty freaked out by little creepy dolls and mannequins myself. I want a story that will scare me! I hope you guys can deliver!

Make sure if you end up doing any of my prompts that you tell me. I’m going to make a list of all of the responses at the end of the month, so we can have a big compilation of horror stories, for anyone who is really in the Halloween mood and wants to get their fix.

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