Hello all, As I have seen how people love dark theme, here I am with 5 dark & spooky prompts for Halloween. 😈 Again, you have 7 days to write.
There will be at least 3 juries, which will be announced later. There will be 1 winner for each prompt (total 5 winners). I will shout out the winning stories, and the winners will also get winner certificates.
Let's get down to business and see what the prompts are. (Remarks: I changed pronouns in some quotes to make them more suitable.)
