Story Prompt for Writers

Doll with top hatOctober is a perfect month for paranormal stories. Here’s a prompt, but if you don’t care to write what I call a “creepy” one, I collected a few images that could inspire any kind of story. I know a few humor writers who might come up with a laughable yarn. Let me know if you work with this prompt and post a summary in the comment section if you like.

Imagine you are helping a friend clear out a house and you’re in the attic. You fill boxes to give to charity and when you put a doll in one, it begins to talk to you—for real, not like a wind up doll. What does it say and what do you do?
