Writing Prompt #10 – A Scratch at the Window

For this week, use the following starter to write a horror short, making sure the story comes full circle.

A scratch at the window woke me.  Rubbing my eyes, I sat up and looked out into the darkness.  There was only the empty field that stretched out for miles and miles in front of my house.  I shrugged my shoulders and buried myself deep under the covers.  There it was again.  Frustrated, I walked over to the window to inspect the noise further.  Still, nothing.  Pressing my face against the cool glass, straining to see further into the dark abyss that encompassed my house, I saw something.  A flicker of warm light.  A cascading shadow.  In the distance, just beyond where my eyes could take me. . .

OK your turn.  Keep it going and see where it takes you.

As always, if this prompt helped you write something come back and share a link with us.

Until then, Happy Writing!
