Worldbuilders, welcome to the Inktober Writers Gauntlet for 2019! This year we’ve transformed the Inktober prompt list into expanded writers prompts! Yes, you heard us right! We too know the feeling of wanting to write down all the cool ideas you see others making art for in Inktober. Or even having an art piece done and wanting to create a story from it.

 What is Inktober?

Inktober is an annual social media event for artists. Each year, a new series of prompts is put out and artists worldwide post their drawings for those prompts to social media.

Last year World Anvil put together our own Halloween themed prompts but this year we decided instead to transform the official prompts into full writing prompts.

What is the Gauntlet?

Each day we will be releasing a small writer’s prompt related to the Inktober Prompt. Our challenge to you is to let that inspire you to write about something in your world befitting that prompt.

Use any World Anvil template, though we’ll provide some suggestions with every prompt

Check out Day 1 below, then head over to the staff events page to keep updated with new ones each day.
