Inktober is typically for artists looking to improve their drawing habits, hone their inking skills, and/or just take advantage of the community of challenge.
My husband is an artist looking to improve his daily drawing habit so he’s vowed to participate this month.
In solidarity, I thought I’d do something as well. I didn’t just want to do my typical Story Starter Series, though (even though I haven’t done it in a year!!). In researching Inktober a little more, I discovered a prompt list! So! I’ll be using the Inktober prompt list to come up with three story ideas, slanting to the horror/thriller/suspense genres if at all possible. It is October, after all!
I’m making up for a few days missed so three posts will go live today. But check back daily for a new Inktober entry!

- An ordinary Earth sparrow flies through a space/time rift into a dimension where bird-like creatures are being hunted by nightmarish shadows when it discovers it has incredible, super speed that could help save its kind.
- A gas station attendant, Joe Swift, denies the idea of anything supernatural happening in his town, even as people disappear daily, until he comes face to face with the killer… himself.
- When a young upstart establishes an Old West mining town near Apache territory, winds spirits start terrorizing the settlers until he figures out someone is pulling the spirit strings.
