Writing Prompt: Under the Bed

In the spirit of Halloween, I’ve decided to spend the next few days writing prompts around the subject of fear/monsters/ghosties, and the like.

For this one, try to remember what it was like when you were a child. There is that fear that most of us have wen we’re small, that something is under the bed, waiting for an arm or a foot to dangle over the edge.

Try writing a short piece about one of the following:

1. Something under the bed

2. Hiding under the bed

3. An object rolling under the bed

I had this though as I started writing this. What if there was a door directly under a child’s bed? Where does it lead? How is it discovered? What happens to the person that steps through the door? Does it open both ways? Keep it dark.

Have fun!
