Scribe’s Cave Picture Prompt #8

Welcome to this week’s Scribe’s Cave Picture Prompts! If you hadn’t noticed, we have a series of prompts from the Distractify abandoned ruins; there are enough of them to carry us through early July… Are you ready?

Expectations:

As a writer of flash, you should be familiar with the following expectations:

  • Word limit: keep it between 50-200 words
  • If your flash has adult content, be sure to indicate such so that we can warn our more tender-aged readers
  • Utilize the Submissions Page for your flash once it’s done or use the Linky below the image below
  • Submit by next Monday

Prompt:

Source: adwheelerphotography.com From usatoday.com: Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane was built in 1869 and closed in 1995. Housing 4000 patients at its peak, more than half of the 50,000 patients who called Willard Asylum their home died within its walls. This makes the asylums morgue (pictured above) one of the creepiest places we can imagine. By its closure, most patients were eventually integrated back into society, but in the early days “people didn’t leave unless it was in a box.”
