Hey guys! Prose Editor Katie here: This week’s prompt is to start a story with the line “it crawled up the side of the house.”
I really love this prompt because it adds an element of mystery and thriller, perfect for this scary month of October. Okay, so I know it’s not October anymore, but sometime Thanksgiving can be scary too!
I’ve always really loved reading horror and feeling those goose bumps pop up on my arms and my back. I almost feel a bit of catharsis when I read horror, the fear that wells up inside of me seems to push every real world problem I am thinking about out of me. Happy writing!
