FLASH FICTION FRIDAY, WEEK 54: TICK-TOCK, TICK-TOCK…

Red curtain

Objects have been featured in many horror films. Sometimes they represent ordinary items that have been cursed, such as the Chucky Doll in Child’s Play, or the car in Christine. At other times, they are used as a conduit from the spirit world to ours, such as the TV set in Poltergeist, or the painting in Ghostbusters 2.

This week, we want you to include a specific object in your story: a clock. What type of clock it is or how it fits into your story is totally up to you.

This Sunday is Father’s Day, and it is defined as ‘a day on which fathers are particularly honored by their children, especially with gifts and greeting cards’. Unfortunately, that was never possible for you because when you were growing up, your father was rarely home. He was always on the road with his job, and in his profession, holidays were an especially busy time.

Your dad’s finally retired, and you want to make this Father’s Day the most special day he’s ever had. You’ve got the whole day planned, and it will be just the two of you. He is going to be so surprised, and you can hardly wait.

Prompt: Tell us all about how you spend Father’s Day

Genre: Horror

Word Count: 1,500 or less

Deadline: Thursday, June 23, 2016

Words. Those fascinating combinations of letters that have so much power. Words can soothe, they can endear, they can persuade, and they can terrify. Words create pictures in the minds of those who read, and write, them.

This week, we want you to create a picture in your mind and share it with us. By the way, we’re not at all interested in your words making us feel all comfy and cozy. We want you to get your freak on!

Prompt: Scare our socks off with a story that includes the following words: Cafeteria, keyboard, segment, washing machine, and chandelier

Genre: Horror

Word Count: 1,500 or less

Deadline: Thursday, April 28, 2016
