Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! We’re keeping up our October, Halloween, ghost story themes of fun because, well, it’s fun. This one’s brought to you buy the dense blanket of fog that generously added to my morning commute but that I couldn’t be angry about because I had time to savor my Pumpkin Spice Latte without my coworker giving me a hard time for loving Pumpkin Spice Lattes. (He’s a coffee purist.)

On to this week’s prompt…

A fall’s soup of fog. A werewolf. The last slice of pizza.

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt FridayThis week is brought to you by enough coffee to power my SUV and a new batch of basic, No. 2 pencils. Not sure which I love more; both smell like hope and humanity, and both bring me joy and creativity. Then again, I also really love my SUV.

Enjoy this week’s prompt while I fix myself a third cup of coffee.

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt FridayHurricane Dorian is heading for Florida. All of Florida. And while I usually take this text block to be personal or witty (or try to), right now I just want to say this: Be careful. To everyone who’s getting ready for this storm, be careful. I grew up with hurricanes; they’re terrifying. Be careful out there. And good luck. My thoughts are with you.

This week’s writing prompt…

There was nothing unforgettable about her, but I couldn’t forget if I spent my life trying.
