This week’s challenge is now open for submissions. So, if you’ve already written something, go ahead and link it up at the bottom of this page. If you haven’t written anything yet, don’t worry — you have until Monday at noon to link up your post. The prompts and the rules are below, just in case you haven’t seen them yet.
Once you’ve linked up your submission, remember to read and comment on your fellow bloggers’ submissions. Oh, and if you’re looking for feedback or constructive criticism on any of your writing, there is a forum for that in the Ghouls’ Lair.
If challenges aren’t your thing, we are currently accepting submissions for the first edition of The Ghouls’ Review. Along with fiction and poetry, we are also looking for visual art, so be sure to spread the word to all your artistic friends!
The spookier the better
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that ghouls enjoy the spooky things in life. And given that October is the spookiest month of all, we’re encouraging you to celebrate by letting your creepiest muse out of whatever closet/box/dungeon you’ve locked it in. It’s not mandatory, but it sure would make the ghouls happy.
Here are this week’s prompts. Remember, you must use the definition we’ve given for the word prompt — and you must incorporate the visual prompt into your piece in some way.
A place frequented by a specified person.
- • Challenge submissions must be fiction or poetry.
- • Submissions must be 750 words or less.
- • Submissions must use the prompts as specified.
- • Submissions should be written in response to the challenge, so shouldn’t pre-date the kickoff post.
- • One submission per person.
- • Please put lengthy explanations at the end of your post, not at the beginning.
- • Don’t forget to add the code for the challenge badge to your post (under the badge in the sidebar).
- • And don’t forget to have fun!
