"Sonia, I don't like official prompt list at all. I work on my own theme. How will my folowers react to this topics on my feed?". Ok, Let's think about this side of art challenges.

1
Think about your own theme through the lens of the official prompt list

This is creative possibility to make your look on art richer.

For example, my own art topic is flowers. And official prompt list is all about adjectives. So, there are some examples:
poisonous + flower (such a big choice), tranquil + flower (valerian?), roasted + flower (so, nettle is ok), and so on.

2
Write your own prompt list

Last year I wrote the list of flowers I wanted to draw. And I drew my flowers one by one for inktober 2017. Or you can join to someones prompt list fitting your art topic (easy to find on Pinterest or Instagram, input "inktober prompt list").

3
Risk and try new!

You can make your own little challenge: defy yourself and try new topics, new materials or new stilisation on your works. It's a good reason to try it because it is inktober, The whole World is on your side!

4
Form a band!
 
You can connect with other artists (and your friends and folowers) and make joint action, friendly competitions and give a present to each other in the end.  And all are in, nobody worries about your usual topic. You all are in this adventure.

5
Add a narrative

Actually, It's my plan on inktober2018. I've been drawing flowers and only flowers for 2 years already. And I want to grow up on some direction. I want to move from simple sketches to illustrations, you know. I decided to add a little story in my pics. So, I invite you to join me on this way. I'll post my pics on my instagram profile.
