The Ogre in the Armoire

Writing prompts are designed to kick-start your creativity. A writing prompt is simply a topic around which you start jotting down ideas. The prompt could be a single word, a short phrase, a complete paragraph or even a picture, with the idea being to give you something to focus upon as you write. You may stick very closely to the original prompt or you may wander off. Read the prompt and see where it takes you.

Write a scene in which something very normal or commonplace is utterly terrifying.
Your favorite coffee mug, the large oak tree in your backyard, your favorite easy chair in the den.
Make your reader feel your terror, make sure they never, ever want to sit in your easy chair again.
