The next prompt will still show up on October 8th.

Go ahead and submit your work! Despite nominally failing the challenge, you will still get critique and feedback and I will still post your story to the main blog. Even in non-completion you are still a winner.

Hello, so here’s my go at prompt 2 using a loose interpretation of prompt 210 from lovecraft’s commonplace book (An ancient house with blackened pictures on the walls—so obscured that their subjects cannot be deciphered. Cleaning—and revelation. Cf. Hawthorne—Edw. Rand. Port.)

lunavin asked: Not so much a prompt idea, but perhaps with the Lovecraft challenge people could claim prompts so no ideas get repeated. Since it's only a week long challenge then after the week whatever was taken and not written can be released back into the wild. If this circulated widely enough we might have a collection of stories based on all the prompts.

I’d actually love to see people’s takes on each number! Don’t worry about overlapping numbers with someone else. Your story is uniquely yours!

That being said, try to go outside your comfort zone and do a phrase that weirds you out or might be super challenging. You grow as a writer by pushing past obstacles, after all.

CONSIDER THIS A TEASER 
It’s rushed a bit (want to get all 4 pages done before sunday) but it feels weird working in color again.
Man it is 4 AM and what is this thing I am doing.
EDIT;
Should mention this is being done for the writing prompt at Writeorelse

Regardless of whether you finish or not, EVERYONE is a winner at Write Or Else. Especially if you make a comic page as cool as this one!
