Fun for Friday: Drawlloween as Writing Prompts

Mab's Drawlloween 2018Normally, today’s the day when I would post my list of prompts for the month of October. But October is Drawlloween, which is a great month of prompts for artists to draw a spooky thing every day of the month. And I like to use Drawlloween prompts as writing prompts, because I love spooky things!

This list comes from Mab Graves on Instagram, and she’s got a hashtag to go with it (#mabsdrawlloweenclub). I’m going to attempt to write something, either poetry or flash, for each of these things on the appropriate days (or maybe cross stitch or crochet, if the words don’t want to match the prompt). If you want to join me, whether you want to write or draw, check out the hashtag and have a spooky October!
