I’m sorry that I haven’t been on! It’s just that with the school year starting and all, it’s been hectic. Anyway, let’s get on with the show!

 

What Are the Elements of a Truly Spooky Story?

Good question… I’ve come to a conclusion that a good story to give the chills has to have at least some of these elements:

  • A creepy setting – A haunted house, for instance. Something dark and mysterious. Try places like the abandoned manor, a dark night (midnight preferably), or a spooky forest.
  • A villan or otherworldly being – If a story has a demon, a vampire, or a ghost in it, I’m pretty sure it counts as creepy.
  • A strong hero/heroine – This category can be filled by a child, a young woman/girl, or just a person.
  • A reason for said being to be there – Sometimes a ghost needs to pass a message on to the living. Maybe a vampire must destroy someone evil. I don’t know. Be creative.
Those are just a few of my ideas… There are many more elements. Be sure to include a strong storyline!

New Page?
Hello, hawkies! Right now I’m toying with an idea of mine, and I want to know what you think. See, I’m taking Japanese in school, and I was wondering is you would care for a page with a few words and/or phrases in Japanese. It could be a learning page for you. Learn one new thing every day!
