A 1000 words story challenge

Does anyone want a writing challenge?

I challenge you to write a 1000 word story, no more no less. The topic? Subvert a horror trope. No limit; it can be ghosts, demons, serial killers, anything you can think of really, but you have to turn it on it’s head.

Random examples:

Serial killer goes after a therapist, ends up in therapy

Ghost falls in love with the person they’re haunting

Demon gets tired of doing demon things, wants to open a bakery

For more examples of tropes to subvert, see: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HorrorTropes


I did a trope! I picked the trope “deadly book”! This was a lot of fun! :smiley:
