So I've been a writer on this site for a few years now, and I'm really wondering if I belong here. I've been told a couple of times that people enjoy some of my pastas, but don't quite find them that scary. The thing is, I agree with them. I've come upon this problem with a lot of my work. Some people have even said that my stories weren't really creepypastas either. Some of them say that they're more sci-fi than they are creepypasta. This has really got me wondering what I should do. I love the genre and the community, but I can't help feeling out of place here. Most of my work has been for a genre who's core aspect I can't pull off properly. I've been trying to work on it a bit, but in my efforts to avoid cliches and excessive gore my pastas have ended up stale. Has anyone else had this problem or have any advice?
