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
A thief finds a note in a wallet they pickpocketed.
“I have a job you might be interested in.
Meet me at the corner at midnight.
Bring my wallet with you.”
