A Short of Sorts: A Witch of a Solution

 

Super cool background illustrations by L!

We’re a little past Halloween, but hopefully, you guys are in the mood for some witchy nonsense, still! I tried to keep it a bit lighter after the past couple stories, so hopefully I succeeded? Also remember that I’m still taking prompts for the next story, and the prompt theme is SOFT! (You can check out this post for more info, but feel free to prompt here.) Anyhow, here’s all the prompts!:

Instagram:

  • Ghoul — @sarah_ahiers
  • Which Witch — @sdeoul
  • Zombie – candy corn – witches brew — @totally_anntastic

Tumblr:

  • candy that makes you transform into your costume! A haunted house that really just wants to be cleaned and nice! An drunk witch on the loose! — @Sw–tbl–d

  • sentient pumpkins who just want to be jack o lanterns, a real skeleton used as a decoration, and a dark sacrifice — @everqueen12

If you prefer a different medium, this story’s also up on Instagram and Tumblr (and there’s a Tweet for this post)!

Prompt Call: Soft

Wasn’t sure I would have time to put this out today, but I did!

Prompt call time! Give me your prompts, and I’ll take every last one and work it into a short story. This time, the theme is SOFT! Anything goes: ideas, words, pictures, poetry, music, whatever you can throw at me. You don’t have to follow the theme, it’s just a nudge to get your brain juices flowing. Otherwise, the general rules apply:

  • You can prompt at any point in time, on any social media where I lurk (like on these posts on Insta, Twitter, and Tumblr), but if it might get worked into the next story if it’s later.
  • You can give me as many prompts as you like—just pretty please keep it within reason.
  • Keep prompts PG-13, and nothing offensive.
  • By giving me prompts, you’re giving me the honor to do whatever I’d like with them in/with my stories as my content. Prompts themselves remains to whoever owns them.

For more info, stories, and custom stories, check out the project page. And if you want to support this project, consider giving me a coffee on Ko-Fi?

Now, hit me with those prompts! And look forward to the story written with last theme’s prompts going live tomorrow!!!

Prompt call time! Typically I’ll post this the day before I post a story, but I figured surprising peeps with a story instead of a lame prompt call would be best.

  • You can prompt anywhere, here, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram.

  • You can give me as many prompts as you like—just pretty please keep it within reason.
  • Keep prompts PG-13, nothing offensive, and I don’t do fanfic, alas.
  • By giving me prompts, you’re giving me the honor to do whatever I’d like with them in/with my stories.
  • If you want to be tagged in future prompt call posts so you don’t miss one, let me know!
