Good afternoon, Cyberspace, and welcome to yet another glorious episode of The Smudged Thoughts PictoPrompter!!!
Now, I was planning on having this particular episode be the first-ever Smudged Thoughts PictoPrompter PLUS!, in which one random writer wins a one-of-a-kindly-hand-crafted prize by yours truly, but alas, that requires a despicable thing known as planning. And with both NaNoWriMo and Christmas fast approaching in one hob-gobbled mess that is currently threatening to strangle me with its gnarly fingers, well…
I have not had enough time to actually plan anything besides NaNoWriMo and Christmas.
perhaps you have noticed my rather distant absence on the blogosphere. hahaha…ha.
So, due to the unquenchable stress that I am currently slogging through, this is going to be just another one of your average PictoPrompters–
No rules. No limits. 1000% creativity.
But this is good, right? It gives you all a chance to let your creativity burst forth from your fingertips before the dreaded NaNo season hits–a chance to loosen up your brain meats and see what spews out of your beautiful mind.
And since Halloween is fast-approaching, I think this month’s PictoPrompt is sure to get all you spooky scribblers out there in a ghoulishly sinister mood.
But before the grand reveal, allow us to acknowledge our previous PictoPrompter participants, who wrote some truly amusing stories based upon. . .
The Evil Peep.
Quite terrifying, wouldn’t you say? And if you would like to read of the adventures this terrifying chick has journeyed on, here are some links to all of the current stories!

I would highly suggest taking a peek at what these guys wrote, because these stories were hysterical. And also quite frightening.
But anyway, if I happened to forget someone, or you would like to write a story based on last time’s PictoPrompt, then go ahead and leave a link to your story in the last PictoPrompter post, that way I can add your name to the list of participants, and also that I–and everyone else–may read your story and bow to your brilliance.
All right! We are nearing the reveal of this month’s PictoPrompt, but before I yank off the red curtain in a flurry of crimson, allow me to suggest reviewing the rules once more before participating.
(oh, look at that. I made a handy-dandy page. i’m so cool.)
Nothing has changed since the last PictoPrompter, but if you’re new to the whole PictoPrompting shenanigan, I would highly recommend checking out the FAQ before leaping in.
And don’t forget to either link back here to this post, or insert the spiffy PictoPrompter button into your story so that everyone else can participate, as well!
because I spent a lot of time on that button so you BETTER USE IT, PEASANTS!
Okay! I think that pretty much sums everything up! Are you ready to see what your brand-spanking new PictoPrompter of the month is?
Of course you are.

. . .
Isn’t that just glorious? Doesn’t it make you want to
vomit run away screaming have only seven days left to live (#ringreference) write a spookily spectacular story?
I know I sure do. So go on ahead and whip out that pen, pencil, laptop, crayon–whatever it is that you love to write with and have at it! I cannot wait to see what delicious stories you come up with involving this delectable pit of green goop.
talk to me, peasants!
Well, Cyberspace, that’s it for this week! I know that it’s been literally FOREVER since the last PictoPrompter, but I am confident that this shall be the start of a beautiful renewal.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on this month’s PictoPrompt? Does it make you feel ill? Would you like a sparkling glass of this green sewer water to toast your family with on New Years? What vile creature lurks beneath that spongy, frothy surface???
All these questions and more are waiting just beyond the waters for you to give them life. So what are you waiting for? Write, my minions! WRITE!
