October Writing Prompt Participants


Well, we had another great month of writing and the response was even greater than last month.  We had a few extra people join in on the fun this time around, and I want to congratulate, Dorinda Duclos, Grant Fenton, and Tessa Smeigh for completing every single prompt!  If you haven’t had the opportunity to read their work, please take a moment to visit their websites.

Like last month, I’ve included the links to all the participating prompt writers below.  I apologize ahead of time if I missed adding some of the links.  It’s getting harder to keep track now, with so many of you participating.  So, please let me know if I happened to miss any, and I’ll be happy to make the correction and add your link to the list.

You all did a great job and I feel so privileged to be part of a community of such amazing and wonderful writers!  I hope you’ll continue to write with me for the remainder of this year and into the next.  Much love to all of you!  ~M  xo

  1. I think this program of writing is brilliant. You are just wonderful for organising the way you do. Thank you for the great prompts and thanks for sharing the other writers. There is some great stuff amongst them.

    1. Thank you… you are such an encouraging person. I love how upbeat and positive you always are. I’m so thankful to have so many wonderful writers all writing alongside me. ☺️

        1. That’s awesome to hear!!! I wish I could say the same for myself, but I’ve had a bit of bad luck with my health this week and have yet to even start on my novel. I would love to proof your book once it’s done. All of my contact information can be found on my Gravatar when the time comes and you want to share it. Keep going! Can’t wait to read it! 🙂

          1. Hope you’re feeling better now. I can’t wait to read yours. I’m actually about to post some excerpts just to see if people respond to the content. I’d love any feedback you might be able to give.

            1. No, unfortunately I’m not… but isn’t that just life. Never wants to cooperate. Lol… I’m going to try to write something tonight if my brain can only focus. My medication makes me really sleepy and so it’s hard to concentrate. I will stop by later and take a look. 😉

            2. I’m so sorry to hear that. I hope it is something that will change soon, or at least be something you manage well. I’ll keep good thoughts in my mind for you. Take your time and don’t be rushed into solving anything ‘right now’. Rest and when you’re able, I’ll be here with stuff to read and ready to read anything you can write.

            3. Lol… thank you. Great advice… Only about 500 words at this point. So not a very good start, but at least it’s an attempt. I haven’t done any preplanning, so we’ll see where this goes. 😉
