January 2023 Drabble Challenge: Slush

Horror PromptsGillian Church is hosting a horror drabble challenge this January: 31 prompts for 31 creepy tales throughout January that clock in at around 100 words.

The Prompt:

The Submission:
There was a terrible smell in the kitchen.

Mother wouldn’t like that, but then she was hardly in a position to complain any more.

And thank-fuckin’-God for that!

Thirty years I’ve had to deal with her chipping away at me. Condescending me here, criticising me there.

Nothing was ever good enough, not for Mother.

I just couldn’t take it anymore. When she told me I wasn’t cutting the cucumbers the “right way”, I just snapped!

I plop the putrid mess of her brains into the blender, turning them to slush, and lick my fingers, satisfied that I’ll never have to hear her voice again.

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.
