February Drabble Challenge: Noise

Horror PromptsGillian Church has created 28 single-word prompts and challenged writers to write a horror drabble for each. A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words, no more, no less (not counting the title).

Can you do it?

The Prompt:
Noise

The Submission:
It’s the same fuckin’ thing every single fuckin’ day!

It doesn’t matter how many times I bang on the wall, or glare at them when they walk past, or even when I call the cops; every fuckin’ day the noise is constant!

Screaming, shouting, blaring all around me.

I can’t sleep. It’s like the walls are pounding from all the racket!

Can’t eat. I hear it even when I’m outside the house now!

I tried to drown it out, to convince others of it, but they wouldn’t listen.

How many more have to suffer? Why won’t the noise just stop?


What did you think to the prompt for this week’s drabble challenge? Did you submit anything for it? Have you ever written any flash fiction before? I’d love to know what you think to my snippets and writing prompts, so feel free to sign up and let me know what you think below or leave a comment on my Instagram page.
