Mel’s Midweek Writing Menagerie #16

Mel's Midweek Writing Menagerie

Welcome to my biweekly writing prompt series. The rules of the challenge are simple. I’ve provided two options below, and there’s a handy link-up button at the end of the post, so you can upload your contribution and share it with others. You have until the 14th of October to submit, before the next round begins. If you prefer to use the pingback method, I’ll check out each link I receive. Here is the hashtag, should you wish to use it – #MelsWritingMenagerie. This month the theme will be centred around Halloween.

Before I get to the prompts, I’d like to share a link with you to a fanfiction piece written by Louise Findlay – a piece all you Doctor Who fans will definitely appreciate. You can find it by clicking on the following title:

The Gallifreyan Tearheart: Chapter 1 by Louise Findlay

All entries are shared on Featured Fiction.

So, on to the next set of prompts. Grab the badge and write a post based on either of the following:

Option 1: Sentence Starter –

Blood seeped from the wound; it snaked along the blade, dripped from the hilt and landed with a sickening plop on his shiny, black shoes.

Option 2: Fanfiction –

Write a scene from your favourite show, film or book, which incorporates Halloween as a theme.


Thanks for stopping by.

Ah, excellent! I’ve been hoping for some creepy, Halloween style reads over the next few weeks so I’m excited to see what people come up with 🙂

Interesting prompts! I will pass Halloween. It scares me 😛 Will be around though reading 🙂

Just checking on our weekend coffee. I actually was out too many times this week to gab with friends so I need to buckle down and work today!

I'd love to hear from you.
