March Drabble Challenge: Dough

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:
Dough

The Submission:
Mrs. Sanders danced as she worked in the kitchen. She kneaded the dough, spreading it into a perfect base ready to be filled with meat, potatoes, and seasonings and cooked to perfection in her large, cast iron oven.

She took pride in her meat pies, which were the most popular seller in her bakery. And why not? Her meat was as fresh as you could want, and locally sourced. She danced her way to the fridge to grab a tray of Father Brisco’s meat, freshly tenderised and cut, and happily dropped the chunks of the nosey priest to the dough.


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.
