horror-prompts

Well, well! Here we are! As you’ve noticed, I’ve taken to posting two days at a time. My little boy is distracting, and I’m also trying to plot for NaNo! I won’t always do two days together, but I wanted you guys to know that I will always certainly  have these up, even if I have to do this a few times.

As a side note, I’m planning on doing these prompts and posting up some of my replies soon! I can’t’ wait to see what you guys come up with for these particular prompts!

Day 4:

Day 5: 

So, there we have it! The writing prompts for day 4 and 5! I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with for these! Remember to link back to my blog if you do the prompts, so I can feature you on my weekly sum up post!

31 Days of Horror Prompts for October #25, 26, 27

horror-promptsHey, everyone. I’ve clearly continued with my “I’m behind on doing my writing prompt responses.” And I very well may continue that for a bit more. I’m hoping to catch up over this weekend, but we’ll see. I will, however, continue to post the prompts ❤ And I’m playing catch up with that today. I actually kind of like doing them in a big post though, because it gives the people who don’t want to do daily prompts a variety all in one place.

Anyway, NaNo is getting closer and closer, so I encourage you to apply these prompts to your characters, if you can. After all, there’s nothing wrong with that!

Prompt #25

“There’s a body-shaped gap in the thick forest brush that wasn’t there before. Upon closer inspection, each of the branches around the gap are seared as if burned.”

Prompt #26

You wake up one day to find your dead husband/best friend sitting in your living room.

Prompt #27

The smell beneath the floorboards was getting worse every day

So, there we go. Three new prompts. I think that they’ll be pretty fun to tackle. I tried to make sure that they each had a different type of feel to them. Bonus points for you guys if you can work in your MC’s from your NaNo novel this year for the prompts – if you do that, make sure to link me back when you post it. I”d love to see what you’re writing, and I’m going to compile and post everything together after you’ve done it.

Even though I’ve been getting behind on these prompts, it has still been a real adventure for me. I really love posting prompts – I usually only do it once a week… and that’s completely manageable for me to complete. Though one every day has been a bit much, just coming up with the prompts is a fun and creative process for me. I’m glad that you guys have been enjoying it as much as you have, and you can rest assured that I’m going to do this again for next Halloween!

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

31 Days of Horror Prompts for October #23

horror-promptsHey, everyone! I’m going to get today’s prompt posted up, so that I can go ahead and start posting my backlog of responses that I haven’t done. I hope you guys have been enjoying yourselves, because I certainly have. Anyway, onward and upward, right?

Write something using this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwlMnX_u6kE

Your theme is to also use the picture that is included as the picture for the music. So… scary babies, scary music.

Scary babies. That should be something to give you a pause and a thought. I don’t think that I’ve ever posted a prompt that has this particular potential, so hopefully you guys will enjoy it!

I hope that you guys enjoyed the prompts. Make sure if you end up writing one of them that you link back to me! At the end of the month, I’ll get a compilation fo all of the prompts posted up, so that everyone can see what we’ve done together during the month!

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