Inktober Writers' Gauntlet

Join Inktober and the Writers' Gauntlet!

Hosted by Ademal and the Sparks

Welcome, Worldbuilders, to WorldAnvil Inktober and the Writers' Gauntlet!   This is a two-pronged event hosted by Ademal and the Sparks, with aspects for both artists and writers.  

For Artists

Inktober For artists we have developed the Inktober Prompts that you see below.

Feel free to do them in any order, but on the WorldAnvil Discord and on social media we will be focusing on the prompt for each day on that day. Challenge yourself to do them on the day of! It's all about practicing and improving!

For Writers

The Gauntlet Each day of October we will be releasing a small prompt related to the Inktober Prompt for that day. Our challenge to you is to let that inspire you to write about something in your world befitting that prompt.

You can use any template, and may even run in an entirely different direction with it altogether!

 

And of course, if you're feeling ambitious, you can do both!
Why not write and illustrate an article using each prompt?
