Since getting your stories seen is a big thing for a lot of the authors around here I wanted to bring a new (ish) website to the community's attention. Creepypasta.xyz operates similarly to creepypasta.com in that stories chosen for publication on the site are featured on the front page. The site currently publishes four stories a day. The four most recent stories show up at the front page as well as the four most recently high rated stories (at least a 4 on a 5 point rating scale) and a couple others the admins choose to spotlight. Unlike creepypasta.com there is a good deal of transparency with their selection process. All submitted stories show as "pending" in your profile until they are either accepted or rejected. The only rejections…Read more >
So, I don't think I've ever done a blog post promoting a narration of one of my stories before, but this one is just a little different.
About a year and a half ago I wrote a story for a contest run by Koromo called Her Red Right Hand that, to my great surprise and pleasure, won first place and was featured on the front page as spotlighted pasta of the month. Since then, though, it has been...dead just seems too basic of an adjective but we will go with it. Almost no comments since it was on the front page, no narrations (well, one really bad one), zilch.
Anyway, a couple weeks ago I submitted it to YouTube narrator Dr. Creepen hoping he'd consider adapting it. I was stoked when he decided to pick it up. I was even more stoked when he inform…Read more >
So a coworker of mine and I get together about once a week to watch a horror flick. The other day we thought it would be cool to come up with our unofficial top 100 horror movies. I thought y'all here might appreciate and have some opinions on it. Now, this list is obviously not definitive, or set in stone, as we have reserved the right to bump movies off it as we find others we think we like better. Criteria for the movies wasn't anything consistent: some that made the list are just pure classics, others are "bad" movies that we just liked for whatever reason. That being said, in no particular order, the list we came up with was:
2. The Exorcist
6. The Thing
7. The Blair Witch Project
9. Halloween…Read more >
For the last 12 hours or so I've been tying up a bunch of the wiki feed, and several of the admins' talk pages, arguing to try to get a spinoff approved for inclusion on the main site. Based on the various responses from the majority of folks on the site that you don't want to tick off, it appears that what I perceived as passionate defense of my work was instead interpreted as me being unreasonable, and in some cases, insulting.
As I stated multiple times in various posts, it was not my intention to insult anyone, or otherwise make anyone uncomfortable. My sole intent was to try and make sure that the individuals responsible for denying my appeal had in fact read the story first as it dealt with spinoff material of a highly controversial n…Read more >
