Fun for Friday: October 2019 Writing Prompts

October is my favorite month of the year, because it culminates in Halloween. It’s also a month with a whole lot of art challenges themed to the spooky season. So this month’s writing prompts come from Mab’s Drawlloween Club, Inktober, and Sari’s Artober. There’s a little bit of repetition amongst the lists, but for most days, there are three different prompts. So you can use all three, or just pick the one that speaks to you the most! (I’ve also included links for some of the items on Mab’s list, as they were ones I didn’t know the first time I saw those!)

Check back on the last Friday of each month (or occasionally the first day of a new month, when that falls on a Friday) for my History That Never Was writing prompts!
