Linkup and Flicker of Inspiration Prompt #23: Time of the Season

At long last, Halloween! For Katie and myself, it's close to our favorite holiday. The costumes, the spookiness - and most of all, the scary movies! We love it, so of course we devoted all of October to Halloween-themed prompts for Flicker of Inspiration.

The fourth and last prompt we came up with was called "The Living Nightmare" - you were meant to take your own fears, whatever they are, and scare us with them. Snakes, heights, clowns... if it scares you, it can scare someone else. That was the plan, so let's see what you came up with.

1) Linkup below! It's open until Wednesday as usual, but Halloween is Monday. Still, it's never too late to be scary! If you still have Halloween candy, Halloween is never really over. Don't forget to include a button, available to your right for the lower-than-ever price of $0.00!!

2) Read all the posts, and comment as much as you can. Be supportive and helpful; let people know what you liked. Or at least let them know you read it :-)

3) Blabber to your friends on Facebook and Twitter about our linkup. The more people we get involved, the more interesting and fun it is!

4) Check back later for new posts, keep reading and commenting. And get to work on next week's prompt!

Speaking of the new prompt,

Flicker of Inspiration Prompt #23: Time of the Season

Halloween's over, or it will be soon enough, but the "Holiday Season" hasn't really taken off yet, I don't think. I suppose Halloween is sort of the start of it, but it doesn't really feel that way to me yet.

I kind of feel like taking a week or so and just experiencing the autumn. The odd little piece of time between Halloween and Thanksgiving doesn't get a lot of attention, you know? In movies, it doesn't even exist. If it's not Thanksgiving Day, it's one of the few days before it. There's so much going on, though! As they say, it's the time of the season when love runs high. I don't know if the Zombies were talking about this time of this season, but it's as good as any and better than most.

Your prompt this week: 700 words or less, give us something seasonally appropriate; that is, after Halloween but before Thanksgiving.
