The Trap

Following is another of my 100 word short story.

I open my eyes to claustrophobic darkness. I flail, kick and scramble to escape the bleakness. After what seems like a struggle of a lifetime; I rest my head against the wall, my breath exaggerated. ‘Damn it!’ I cry out loud. My voice echoes. Cul de sac? I question myself. I see a shadow pass. Suddenly it’s towering behind me. Close enough that I feel something clammy. It grips my hands. My voice cracks, ‘Who are you?’ ‘Your fear’, a menacing reply echoes. ‘What do you mean’ I ask confused. The shadow whispers, ‘I’m your writer’s block’. Lights burst on.

  1. Your one hundred word story is very interesting.Do you just have to write one hundred words? Or are we supposed to take it and create a story of our own.It might be a great idea.Can it be some sort of a challenge?Please elaborate.

    • thank you for liking it 🙂 actually I came across a few short story writing competitions that challenged the participants to tell their story in just 100 words! So I have been brain storming with a few ideas 🙂
