Umbrello "Umby" Pokochan is the completely fake name of this month's featured author! If you're looking for something different, with a little more subtlety and a little less purple prose, then Umbrello might be the author for YOU! His two favorite things to write are tragedies and twists, and as a minimalist he attempts to get his point across with as few words as possible. Most of his work relies on the unexpected, but he tries to craft stories that grow a little each time you read them.
Umby is highly influenced by horror cinema, often forgetting that he's writing a story and not a movie script. Believable characters and motivations are extremely important in everything he creates, and everything he enjoys. Besides writing horror fiction, Umby dabbles in singing, songwriting, comedy, and the visual arts.
Try these Umby pastas:
Arms: I keep waking up thinking someone is choking me, but there's no one there. What's up with that? Find out, in ARMS! (not a video game pasta)
Jason Loved to Read: A guy who's obsessed with reading finds a library in the middle of the woods. Bad stuff happens.
Dog Children: You know those horror movies where some innocent fool ends up in an old, empty American town and then bad stuff happens? It's a rhetorical question.
Spiderland: A rather long, eerie tale of a father searching for his son after losing him at a carnival. (Inspired by Slint)
No Homophones: A man blames his crappy life on the loss of a spelling bee in this sadistic revenge fantasy.
Pasta and beyond: Due to life stuff and being too critical of myself, I haven't finished a new creepypasta in a while. However, I am currently working on two pastas that are sequels/spin-offs of my pasta Empty House, and a few other stand alone stories but I don't know when they'll be ready. In the meantime, I have a youtube comedy channel called umbysworld where I do satirical creepypasta narrations as well as music and gaming videos. Follow me on twitter @umbysworld for updates!
