I am doing a test to see something. I am going to be uploading a good number of stories onto this site, stories I've written in the past which believe are sub-par. Some of which I believe will be taken down within minutes, with some luck others will stay for much longer. I am wondering if the first story, one which I published before creating this blog, will still be up by the time I finish writing this.
Just wanted to give you guys a heads up before you see a lot of stories that have been scrapped in the past.

There are some authors which seem to be so good, so on top of the game, that they are the only ones that get talked about. I have noticed that a lot of them are good at one aspect of writing. So below are going to be a short list of authors which I feel are the best and what they are the best at. Most of them are going to be for horror and suspense, but there may be a few which are just classic writers who have made such an indelible mark on writing they cannot be over looked.
1) H. P. Lovecraft: Let's start off with one of the masters of modern horror. In fact, without this man we wouldn't be writing creepypasta the way we do. He is most know for the mythos hey created, the Cthulhu Mythos. He had given the world some of the most …Read more >
Oh, I hate writers block. The more I try to write something the more I fall into the the grips of this monster. For the past week or so I've been trying to write a story, most of which just come out to be a few hundred to a thousand words before I scrap the idea because it is just terrible.
Most of the time, when this ailment befalls me, I can just write through it. But this time seems to be much stronger and longer than normal. It is a long drawn out problem, which is starting to get under my skin.
So, what do you guys do when you can't seem to think of anything good? Where do you guys go that makes you think? I used to get great ideas from youtube or movies, but now it doesn't seem to be working very well. I need a little help for a good p…Read more >
I've noticed something with so many stories on this site, they all rely on blood and death for their scares. Because of this idea that blood and death are scary most of the stories which use them are either just boring, or disturbing, and not in a good way.
It's not just here though, Hollywood thinks that is what scares people as well. That is the main issue with horror movies today. Each and every movie relies on gruesome images and different ways to die to deliver the scares, with the exception of cheep jump scares. Just look at the Saw movies or Hostile.
Death, blood and grotesque images are not bad to put in horror stories, but don't rely on them for the scares. Use these things to build up tension, but please don't think that if you put…Read more >
Hello everyone, I am rather new to this site and am still figuring out how to make things work as well as I would like to. I see people who have headers and footers and whatnot and that seems cool to know how to do. Also I saw that I could put a signature at the end of my things, however I had already forgotten how to do so.
Anyway, I have a few questions for everyone on this site in hopes to get some good info:
1) Have you ever been published outside of this wiki?
2) What kind of advice could you give to help others who would like to be published achieve that goal?
3) How many of you want to be published?
I look forward to hearing your answers and learning some tips and tricks from you guys. To answer the questions myself, no I haven't been pu…Read more >
