+ Carve something unrelated to Halloween into a kind of Jack O’Lantern.
+ Play “eyes, ears, nose, and throat”: put one of these organs in a place where it doesn’t belong (on a mutant character’s body is easiest, of course) and write.
+ Go to a local “rental center” and browse the tools, appliances, and furnishings. Choose an interesting object. Rent it if you’ve got money to squander; if not, remember it’s details. Later, write a piece that pretends that your chosen object was possessed in some way.
