13 Days of Samhain – A Horror / Halloween Writing Prompt Challenge

I spent a little while yesterday going through my draft folder for this blog and came across a mini horror / Halloween challenge I’d started planning a few years ago.  I guess I must have run out of time to post it up on the blog, and then subsequently forgot all about it.  No surprise there! 😉

Anyway, it only needed a little bit of tinkering with, and as there is still time to post it this year, I thought why not share it and if folk want to use the prompts, then great!

There are no rules for this challenge.  Write whatever you wish, as long as it is inspired by that day’s prompt.  Here’s a little graphic / badge for anyone who wants it:

And here are the 13 prompts, one for the 13 days leading up to Halloween, with day 13 falling on the 31st:

I’m thinking of joining in myself and maybe writing a series of haiku or tanka responses for the prompts…we shall see.

If anyone does join in, I wish you lots of scribbling Halloween fun!
