Dark, Edgy, and Dreadful
These prompts are creepy, mysterious, maybe downright scary. There’s some prompts with room for comedy, though. Give us your best spin on a thriller, mystery, or horror short story. Whatever genre you choose, make sure there’s a spine-tingling plot twist or chilling ending for maximum effect!
This Week’s Prompt
Start a story with a happy, upbeat sentence, no double meanings. End it with the same sentence, but this time it’s chilling, dark, horrific.
