I've just been thinking about what motivated us to go to this site, and so thought if any of you had any creepy experiences in the past that might have inspired you. I myself haven't as far as I know, and came to cp to try and show people my writing skills. But a relative of mine told me when she was a kid she woke up and saw a shadowy man smoking a pipe in her room, which another person in the apartment said they had seen before. Another relative I know said when she was a kid she could hear voices of a boy and girl having fun in the next door house but actually saw them or heard what they were saying clearly.
