A few prompts with some Halloween fun!


For more instructions, refer to the Getting Started post.


#10 - A Halloween decoration in your home comes to life. Which one is it? What would it say about each of you if it could talk? Do you toss it in the trash, hide it, give it to the dog, create a movie with it as the star, or take it to school with you?


#11 - A boy runs into a field about a half mile from his house to continue searching for his runaway dog, Duke. He hears whimpering nearby and runs toward the sound but trips over something in the long grass and falls...into a hole...with Duke. Are they able to get out? Or do they discover others are trapped in there too? If they explore and locate a tunnel, where does it lead?


#12 - Create a story about a vegetarian werewolf family. Define each character. Describe how they came to be vegetarians. How do they react when Grandpa Werewolf argues with them for their choice? How do they react when one of them slips up and has himself a meaty treat?


#13 - Role reversal. Once upon a time there was a handsome young prince locked in a room in the tallest tower of a faraway castle, waiting for a brave princess to rescue him. How does he spend his time in the castle? Who rescues him and how? What is their relationship afterward?
