Creepy Thomas O.
I’ve always had an interest in horror. I remember watching movies like Friday the 13th alone when I was younger. I’d have nightmares that night, and then oddly enough, I’d go back for more the next day. They actually showed those films (heavily edited) on broadcast TV back in the 80s. These days I don’t really have time to watch too many movies, horror or otherwise, and the internet has eroded my attention span to the point that I don’t pick up full novels anymore. However, short creepypasta stories fill my horror void perfectly, both reading them and creating them.
My intent in writing is to come up with something fun, original, and creepy, but more often than not I find myself ruled by subconscious influences. I work with abused children as a career, and this finds its way into my stories without me even trying. For example, the effects of trauma, and how they alter one’s behavior, is one of those unintentional themes that pops up here and there. I’ve come to the point where I actually look for these motifs in my writing, just to make sure I’m not overusing them.
Some of the Things I’ve Written:
I don’t have nearly enough completed stories, and it’s my own fault. I have a tendency to start a story and then leave it to fallow for an extended period. Someday I’ll get back to all of them, but for now, here are a few that I managed to complete.
The Seer of Possibilities: My most popular story. I’ve found at least thirty Youtube narrations and it’s been translated into a minimum of five languages. I got lucky with this one.
Three Truths: A wife, a friend, a demon, and a problem. Half the readers guess the ending, half don’t. Which category do you fall in? This takes place in ancient Canaan.
Elvis, Peanut Butter, Bananas and Me: Probably not the most likely name for a creepypasta. It’s my attempt at mixing humor and horror. Whether it succeeded or not, I have no clue. I’m fairly certain almost nobody read it, so I’m listing it here just for the hell of it. Seriously, for every one person who read The Seer of Possibilities there’s ten million who didn’t read this one. My apologies in advance to you Elvis fans.
Hey! My collection of short stories, The Seer of Possibilities and Other Disturbing Tales, is over on Amazon! It costs a paltry 99 cents, OR you can download it for FREE from Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and Applebooks/itunes. There are six stories total, four of which are completely new. The most important thing for me right now is getting customer reviews, so if you read it, please take a moment to post one.
