October '16 Word List

September 30th, 2016

Thank you to everyone that helped to put the October word list together. We didn't have a lot of suggested words this time. If you know someone who is needing inspiration, don't forget to mention that they might like to participate in this challenge. Let's see if we can get the participation level up.

Please note that the dates are just recommendations and you do not have to stick to them, you can use any of the 39 words in any order you like.
The tag for October will continue in the same format as before, first three letters of the month, the year and then ‘words’ (oct16words).

* So tag your photos with oct16words to see them all here:

This is how I have compiled our list:
I first removed all words that have been used in the last 2 months. Next I totaled all the words that were nominated more than once. Then I randomly added words that had date associations. I drew the remaining words, with just one nomination, from a hat, so to speak.

The bonus words, which can be used in place of any other word in the month, are:
Birthday, Anniversary, Libra and Scorpio (star signs), Opal and Tourmaline (birthstone) Marigold and Cosmos (birth flower).

Here is the list:

1 Tree
2 Stickers
3 Ghost
4 Scary
5 Orange
6 Baking
7 Pumpkin
8 Cricket
9 Boots
10 Friends
11 Funny
12 Mask
13 13
14 Music
15 Candle
16 Reflection
17 Sky
18 Windows
19 Bones
20 Frightful
21 Graveyard
22 His 'n Hers
23 Jackets
24 Scarecrow
25 Landmark
26 Hands
27 Mirror
28 Teacher

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Yes, Jackie, a lot of people partake, there just haven't been a lot of people nominating words. I should have clarified. Anyway, you don't have to participate every day. I've been ill for several months and haven't been able to do much myself. I did get a diagnosis on Friday though, and hopefully will be back to my old self soon.
