Halloween Writing Prompts
I thought some writing prompts for the spookiest time of year would be appropriate. Even if one doesn’t celebrate Halloween, one is surrounded by the decorations and the excitement of children who want to trick-or-treat and get as much candy as possible. Have fun with the prompts.
Following are some spooky words associated with this time of year. Maybe you could put some of these words to use in the Halloween writing prompts I have suggested in previous articles.

Good vs. Well
How do you know when to use 'good', and how do you know when to use 'well'? To begin with , good is an adjective, and well is an adverb. But is that all you need to know to figure which word to use? If only it were that simple.
God's Eye - a Review
"God's Eye" is the story of a battle between good and evil. The excitement and the mystery begins in the very first sentence of the book and continues until the last page. This thriller by A.J. Scudiere is so good, so absolutely delicious, and so hard to put down that I finished it in just 2 days
