An Introduction To October’s Halloween Prompts


Tomorrow begins thirty-one days of the howlingest good times to be had.

On Sisters In The Shadows, you will find stories, poetry, art, and who knows what else, every single day…sometimes several offerings per day…but always every day a little something….

But here, on this blog, we will be taking you on a more … psychedelic journey.  A journey of creepy and scary and cute.

Duncan and I sat talking one day during the summer, because, I am telling you, Halloween is THE topic in our house, all year long…and we decided that it would be freaky to take cute things…and make them scary…maybe it’s the zombie bunny refrigerator magnet we have that sparked this discussion…

But…there’s our theme for this year: Creepy Scary Cute.

Each day, I will present to you a simple mundane prompt.

You can :

write about it

draw about it

paint about it

sew about it

cook and/or bake about it

weave about it

rave about it

create a movie about it

scream about it

knit about it

crochet about it

create a monument about it

dance about it


Whatever you want to do with this prompt, go with it, go for it…and please, link back to us and share it, if you are so inclined…

Enjoy …
