Hey guys and welcome to Blogtober day 20. Today I’m going to be sharing some more writing prompts. My favourite kind of prompts are the 3 word prompts – I love them because they are vague and you can interpret them however you want.

The prompts I’ve come up with have a place, a person and some kind of event. I hope you enjoy them and they help you with you creativity..
