March Drabble Challenge: Stitches

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:
Stitches

The Submission:
The doctors told me that my arm would itch following the injury, especially after my stitches came out, but the irritation was almost unbearable!

I constantly scratched at the twisted scar, to the point where I had to wrap it in a bandage to keep from splitting the wound open.

I awoke late one night unable to take it any longer. I grabbed a pair of scissors and tore at the flesh, ripping it open and spilling juicy, bloody beetles and writhing worms to the floor.

My stomach roiled. I opened tried to scream and more burst from my throat.


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.
