Spread the love

Starting from scratch is difficult.

Worse when it comes to writing.

Staring at the overwhelming blank page is not what we like to experience.

This is a list of Creative Writing prompts for October. There are at least three prompts for each day.

These creative writing prompts should help get you started in practicing and creating stories every day throughout October.

You can use these prompts however you like.

Whether you want to 

  • Create a poem
  • Write a story
  • Write a personal essay
  • Etc.

You will find these prompts useful.

I tried not to be genre specific when giving the story ideas.

This means you can easily use these prompts for any genre like

  • Horror
  • Romance
  • Scifi
  • Mystery
  • Thriller 
  • Etc

Adapt them to suit your needs.

As long as they help you write.

Consider this blog post to be a writing prompts list you would need to use every day throughout October.
