Creative Prompt: Nightmares and Dreamscapes

Get Creative!

In honor of Halloween… Write about that childhood nightmare that still won’t loosen its grip on your mind. Do you have a recurring dream that could scare our socks off? In the dead of night, what hair-raising thoughts does your mind evoke from the dark? Is that zombie clown really hiding under your bed?
