March Drabble Challenge: Picnic

Horror PromptsGillian Church is hosting another horror drabble challenge: 31 prompts for 31 creepy tales throughout March. This time, we can decide on the length of the piece but I’m sticking to the 100-word default.

Can you do it?

The Prompt:
Picnic

The Submission:
The four of us sat in the park, talking nonsense. Johnny swiped the last muffin, Shawn made googly eyes at Jen, and I simply stared at the ground sipping from my soda. We talked about the old days, our frivolous youth and nights spent drinking too much and caring too little. We talked about everything we possibly could to avoid acknowledging the burning flames ripping across the sky. The heat was rising at an alarming rate; the very ground trembled, and though we tried we could not hide our terror as the searing blaze washed over everything in its path.


What did you think to the prompt for today’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. You can also follow Gillian Church to take part in her Weekly Writing Prompt challenge.
