I am in love with this website. I 8767 m collecting these stories to read right before I go to bed, to my friends at sleepovers, and I love how there 8767 s stories by actual authors. Very awesome.
The old monsters vampires, zombies, ghosts, werewolves have their place. They mean something. But they may also be monsters for another time. Never be afraid to find new monsters. Horror in this way is a pit without a bottom: you will always discover new creatures writhing in the depths, reflecting the time in which they are born. Just go to a Juggalo convocation or a Tea Party gathering. You 8767 ll see.
But the pumpkins began to grow, and as they did, they all changed. Each one got stronger, fatter, and could do more things. Everyone except our sweet little pumpkin. Instead of growing bigger, she stayed small, and when all of the other pumpkins began staying up late or would not to soak up the sun or drink their water, our little green pumpkin kept being good. She obeyed the farmer even when everyone else didn't, but soon, the other pumpkins began to make fun of her.
Hey - I was wondering who the publisher or sponsor of the article is - I'm writing a paper on horror and if I use this information in my essay, I'm probably going to need the name of the publisher for it to be credible
8775 The three types of terror: The Gross-out: the sight of a severed head tumbling down a flight of stairs, it 8767 s when the lights go out and something green and slimy splatters against your arm. The Horror: the unnatural, spiders the size of bears, the dead waking up and walking around, it 8767 s when the lights go out and something with claws grabs you by the arm. And the last and worse one: Terror, when you come home and notice everything you own had been taken away and replaced by an exact substitute. It 8767 s when the lights go out and you feel something behind you, you hear it, you feel its breath against your ear, but when you turn around, there 8767 s nothing there 8776 — Stephen King
Don&rsquo t be afraid to make things hard on your characters. You should always come up with several different problems to choose from. Here are 8 ways to do that.

Some clichés are simply products of lazy writing. Tradition shouldn 8767 t be used as an excuse to repeat what earlier writers have done if you feel the need to write about the stock figures of the horror story, that 8767 s all the more reason to imagine them anew.... It 8767 s only fair to warn you that many readers and publishers would rather see imitations of whatever they liked last year than give new ideas a chance. But I 8767 ve always tried to write what rings true to me , whether or not it makes the till ring. If you don 8767 t feel involved with what you 8767 re writing, it 8767 s unlikely that anyone else will.
Some people... claim that there 8767 s nothing new in horror. In a sense, that may be true. More than sixty years ago, . Lovecraft drew up a list of the basic themes of weird fiction, and I can think of very little that the field has added to that list since then. But that 8767 s by no means as defeatist as it sounds, because the truth is surely that many of the themes we 8767 re dealing with are so large and powerful as to be essentially timeless.
