31 Writing Prompts for October: Day 8-10

horror-prompts

Soooo! To say that I fell a little behind on this is an understatement. However, I’m still going to get all of the prompts up. I’ll be posting some back to back blogs here and getting them up in batches! I really do apologize – between the baby and getting prepped for NaNo (which took most of my free time) I’ve been really busy. However, I’m planning on doing daily update blogs come November, and things are finally starting to get into place with the kiddo (See: He can hold his head up now).

So, anyway. Let’s get these writing prompts going!


Day 8:

At 3 am you wake up out of a very sound sleep. You hear the ice cream truck outside of your house. And you realize, the sound that woke you up, was the sound of your 4 year old daughter, letting the screen down slam, as she left the house.

Day 9:

The man leans into you. There is a dark red almost black color to the whites of his eyes. He is so close his nose is almost touching your nose. You can feel his breath when he says, “We all have it in here. We are all infected.

Day 10:
