Bear In Chair Prompt Call October: ghosts and goblins, witches and werewolves

What you do:

You leave prompts.

Theme:

ghosts and goblins, witches and werewolves or really anything that suits the festivals circa the end of October and beginning of November (I'll take prompts for Diwali as well as Samhain and All Souls)

What I do:

I write flash fiction and poetry to your prompts. I send free private copies of the results to the respective prompters. I post at least one of the results as a public freebie, and I post summaries and price tags for the rest.

What you do if you desire:

(1) Sponsor the prompt call by dropping money in the GoFundMe pot (or Paypaling it to alexconall at gmail) and saying it's to sponsor the prompt call and mentioning your Dreamwidth username. This gets you on my access list on this journal, where you can explore the donor perks tag to your heart's content.

(2) Sponsor a story by dropping money in the GoFundMe pot (or Paypaling it to alexconall at gmail) and saying it's to sponsor a particular story that I've posted the summary and price tag for. This gets the story in question posted publicly.

(3) Signal boost by linking to the prompt call from various and sundry. Leave a comment saying you've done so. This jumps your prompts to the top of my list.

Prompt me! Theme: ghosts and goblins, witches and werewolves

This prompt call is open until I decide to close it, which will be no sooner than the evening of Sunday October 26 CLOSED.

Dia de los Muertos: Pan de Muertos de Chocolate

Diwali: Firecrackers drive out evil spirits.

Witches: When you are the only magical person a mundane person knows, they will come to you when the metaphysical shit hits the fan.

Werewolves: How do they affect magical or mundane ecosystems?

I'll be boosting signal on DW, which echoes to LJ and FB.

On the proper uses of pumpkins, or other winter squash.

Where the birds go when it's cold outside (I hope the little birds are staying warm.)

This time of year is when everything goes to bed (except the ones who don't).

Boosted the signal on Tumblr.
