March Drabble Challenge: Bulb

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:
Bulb

The Submission:
The naked bulb smashed in the fracas, plunging the dank basement into darkness.

Norris grabbed at me, heaving and gnashing, and I struggled to break free from his course grip.

“We don’t have time for this!” Grey shouted.

“Fuck you!” Norris barked and shoved me.

My arms pinwheeled out and I landed hard on my ass in a puddle. Suddenly light flooded the basement as the door burst open and the moaning, shambling ghouls spilled down the stairs.

“Oh fuck!” Grey screamed as one of the writhing corpses stroked at his calf.

Norris lift his crowbar as they swarmed him.


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.
