Writing Prompt: Two Line Horror


After posting about 100 Word Horrors, the editor at @just_100_words (twitter) wrote me and asked, “Can you activate fear or create a true sense of horror in 100 words?”

I thought that was an interesting question. So I thought I would ask my readers. Indeed, I do think writers can succeed in this quest. What do you think? How quickly can you give someone the heebie jeebies?

Therefore today my writing prompt for you (thanks to @just_100_words) is to write the scariest 2 line horror your twisted mind can imagine.

Some examples can also be found on Goodreads Games.

  1. Aloha Wendy,
    Here is my attempt at your prompt – it likely reflect my fears more than anyone else’s.

    “Click — click — click – click-click-click,” from the pitch black overhead. I swing the flashlight up, the cave ceiling moves, thousands of blood red eyes — spiders!

    It scares me, but of course I get goose-bumps easily.
    A Hui Hou,
