A.L. Mabry will be your host each week as we probe the darker corners of your imagination. This series is meant to help feed your mystery/horror muse, so try to give us chills! The prompt is open to interpretation, but try to include the phrase somewhere in your piece.

This Week’s Prompt

It’s the final hour, the votes are in, the truth is out. Where is your MC when it hits the fan? Do they dispute the final numbers? Are they hurt by the truth? Use the words or the concept and paint the scene for us.  I like it dark, don’t be afraid to push the envelope.

 

The rules are simple:

  1. Read the prompt and the history behind the phrase.
  2. Write a story 700 words or less answering the challenge.
  3. Share the URL to your story in the comments OR, if you don’t have your own blog, share your story in the comments. Either way, it will be seen.
  4. Add trigger warnings where necessary. Keep vulgarity to a minimum.
  5. Have FUN!
