October 1: #OctPoWriMo #Writober and #NanoPrep Here we go!

It’s a foggy, creepy morning. Perfect for photographing spiderwebs and getting into the October spirit. Happy first day of October and that means it’s time for some poetry and creepy, scary flash fiction!


Poetry prompt Today’s OctPoWriMo prompt and the theme for this year is “Shine your light.”

Forms Acrostic or Kyrielle Sonnet

An acrostic, a poem in which the first letter of each line spells a word, felt like a good place to start this year.


I effuse creative energy
limited only by scattered focus and
languid corporeal existence
untamed idea generator caged within
muscles and organs that hunger and thirst
incorrigible inventor flitting on
negating intentions to circle back
another beginning and another
the bulbs lighting like stars in the darkest sky
enraptured in exploring the unknown
defused with the next spark


For our first visual prompt, I chose Death Lilies by harkobotand

micro-story : Finally fulfilling her wish to be fully connected with nature, Lilly blossomed.

Read for inspiration and craft

Horror flash fiction story Ghost Collecting

Horror online magazine Flash Fiction Online Though not specifically a horror magazine, it has a horror archive

Horror movie of the day

The Witches based on the story by Roald Dahl and starring Anjelica Huston. I love this movie and it will definitely get me in the mood to write a scary story.

NaNo Prep

There’s a webcast this morning 9:30 am Pacific. I have started a post about this week’s prep for Plot and Structure and will most likely post it later today.
