October Writing Prompts

Get writing this October with fall themed writing prompts!

On the first Monday of every month, I create a few writing prompts to help you get writing! You’ll see them here each month and on Instagram @thelexiconwritingblog every Monday.

Happy October and Happy Fall! It’s officially the start of my favorite time of year! Fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas…I love it all! There are five Monday’s in October which means…five writing prompts! Don’t worry, you fellow fall lovers. These writing prompts are all about fall, Halloween, and everything Pumpkin!
