Here's your horror writing prompt--what's in your closet tonight?

March 26, 2016: Horror Writing Prompt

Tags : 

Today’s horror writing prompt explores the monsters in your closet. Are there skeletons (real or imagined) in there? What does your closet look like? Is it a dark, cobwebby compartment in your mind or is it a very real space in your childhood home, current home, or even a motel, hotel, cabin, or hunting lodge.

How will you deal with your closeted monster? Will you feed it and help it grow or will you try to exterminate it? Have you tried to seal it in only to find it with its eye at the crack of the door jamb, watching you intently?

So, what’s in there?

Go–write!

See you on the next page!

A few of you have requested that I provide a few more clues to spark your creativity for these prompts, so I will start with this sci-fi one:

  • Who is burning the words?
  • What does the language control?
  • Who wishes to stop the words from burning?
  • What century is it?
  • Are the words in books or printed out from a computer?
  • Is there some reason why print might be archaic or obsolete?

Okay now — go write about it!

The world has become so overcrowded that people are forced to live in shifts. Entire families enter a government-regulated sleep period (by taking a government-prescribed pill) for 12 hours each day while their “co-families” (people that share their homes and are awake while the other family sleeps) get up and go about their daily business. But one man decides that 12 hour days is simply not enough…

Choose an inanimate object and describe how (and why) it hunts and kills.
