Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #4 Winner.

Last week’s prompt for Horror House Wednesday (HHW) was the following: “Isn’t this… Romantic?” “You’re a psychopath.” And boy, you psychopaths really outdone yourselves. 😉 Each entry was different, some were twisted and saturated with horror, others lighter with romance, dark humor and mystery. It was like a Christmas come early or rather a Christmas in July reading these entries and seeing how the prompt … Read More Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #4 Winner.

Horror House Wednesday Flash Fiction Contest #4

Hello and welcome back! We are on week number four of the Horror House Flash Fiction Contest.   This week’s prompt is this: “Isn’t this… Romantic?” “You’re a psychopath.” The origin is from my own twisted mind. Drop your best at the door, and give me your worst. You’re in the horror house after all. But, really, please do utilize the prompt in any shape … Read More Horror House Wednesday Flash Fiction Contest #4

Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #3 Entries.

Here are the rest of the flash fiction entries in the order received: The Loch Ness Monster by raedvdr We rode out to the loch in your dad’s silver merc; you drove. Giggling, laughing, we stripped on the water’s edge letting our clothes fall together. Our eyes stealing shy glimpses of smooth skin. We swam out into the loch, out to the deep water; … Read More Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #3 Entries.

Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #2 Entries.

Here are the rest of the flash fiction entries in the order received: Untitled by Chris Ludke. How did I get here? Being lost is normal for me because I move around so much. I often wake up and ask myself, “Where the hell am I?” It’s not a scary feeling. I’m also lost when driving. One time I was trying to find my … Read More Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #2 Entries.

Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #2 Winner.

Last week’s prompt for Horror House Wednesday was the following: “Where is your reality? Do you know where you are?” And the responses did not disappoint. It’s always hard to choose, especially when they’re all such great stories. All of them utilized the prompt in such an innovative way, but alas, I only can choose one as the winner. I chose 37297 by Just … Read More Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #2 Winner.

Horror House Wednesday Flash Fiction Contest #2

Hello and welcome back! We are on week number two of the Horror House Flash Fiction Contest. I’m hoping that we’ll get double the participation this time around, but the turnout from last week was still fantastic.  This week’s prompt is this: “Where is your reality? Do you know where you are?” I found this old thing while deleting useless clutter on my laptop. Do … Read More Horror House Wednesday Flash Fiction Contest #2

Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #1 Winner.

Well, this was not an easy decision. Quite honestly, once upon a time, I was against the idea of holding contests here because I never like having to just pick one entry as a winner. It’s akin to picking a favorite candy—there isn’t just one in mind, is there? Last week’s prompt was a quote (originating from my WIP, funny enough, that I thought … Read More Horror House Flash Fiction Contest #1 Winner.

Horror House Wednesday: Flash Fiction Contest #1

A few days ago, I asked for some suggestions on how to improve my website, along with what features I should add. One immediate feature I’m adding today is a weekly flash fiction contest as suggested by Silver Stone due to the lack of not prompts (there are sea urchins worth of them in the WordPress sea) but rather flash fiction contests. For those … Read More Horror House Wednesday: Flash Fiction Contest #1

End of the world.

Written for the Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest #63 “It is the end of the world,” someone chokes; there is a lull. Stockpiling food for twenty years and toilet paper rolls, But we’re all out—what do we do Go out to Walmart, brawl with others like a zoo; Then leave empty handed—outside, someone is selling them $100 per half roll!

They murder with a kiss.

Written for the Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest #61 Our lightless fire This love is fair with keen appetite Acidification Our magical hyperbole We avoid and clean in the scullery Of faint stale smells of beer Sanctified by an ancient skull Seized, penetrated by anguish Fever of the jaguar In its charm, Possessed much, blood-faced Fairer than myself, No wonder on the summer’s day Plucked … Read More They murder with a kiss.
