Saturday Scribes Writing Prompts: Oct. 31

This week our writing prompts just happen to fall on Hallowe’en, so we’re going for an extra special All Hallows Eve format.  For those of you who prefer the tried and true theme-and/or-words prompt, scroll down, you’ll find them below.  (Fans of the Lovecraft-inspired “Arkham Horror” board game will no doubt find our first three prompts eerily familiar.)

Environment (Weather):
Thick fog

Ghosts on all main streets

Theme:  Sacrifice


As usual, remember comments are semi-moderated, so don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up right away. Newcomers can learn more about Saturday Scribes here (including how to do a permalink to your post) and read the prompt guidelines here.

    Since Saturday is also the start of NaNoWriMo, and a broken coffee maker is a scary sight indeed, I thought it would be appropriate to put a link to Paul Darcy’s latest poetic mangling, even if it doesn’t follow this week’s prompts:
    “Twas the Day Before NaNo”

    Hey y’all. Here’s my contribution for this one. Sorry it’s a few days late.

    Hi Angel – for some reason your link doesn’t work at my end, even though the URL seems to be correct. However, copying and pasting the permalink address into the address bar works for sure:

    I think most of us will be posting late this week. I’m still hoping to be able to tackle the prompts before the week is up, but for now I’m busy scrambling to make sure I stay on track for NaNoWriMo.

    Would link you to the latest submission from ZOH (What…from me? silly silly people…such thoughts are madness!)
