I usually give you several word/themed choices in my weekly writing challenge, so this week, I’m just going to give you one word:
This word evokes different feelings in all of us. Perhaps it relates to a phobia, or a particular situation. You can write about your own fear, or create a fear for a character in a story. Or if a poem comes to mind, I’d love to see it.

Here are your deliciously crisp, autumnal offerings:
The first entry welcomes newcomer Traci Aina with her beautiful story:
Ollie stepped into the blustery, foggy morning, the russet leaves cracking underfoot as enchanting as the delicate frost on a cobweb.
Jason Moody sent in two excellent stories:
The russet sun hung in the foggy, harvest sky, enchanting the early risen harvest folk. Autumn was here, at last.
The frost was cracking underfoot. The cobweb shimmered, enchanting me. The foggy curtain hid something my eyes would not believe.
Adhin Shmina had a great go:
Weird Dimpy who found enchanting to harvest geeky thoughts of foggy air with frost everywhere, feared the wriggling on cobwebs.
Jane Basil sent in two super stories:
Enchanting foggy days followed the pumpkin harvest. Frost cracking underfoot, blustery wind chilling, I inhaled the earthy scent of freedom.
Frost diamonds sparkle on an enchanting cobweb. The fat spider eyes his prey. A sudden blustery wind sends him cracking
Bharul Chhatbar sent in a clever story:
Maggie for years harvested earthy pumpkins on foggy frosty days. Alas!was caught in blustery winds bidding adieu to life.
