Some Do's And Don'ts When Writing a CreepypastaSome Do’s and Don’ts when Writing a CreepypastaSome Do's And Don'ts When Writing a Creepypasta1 year ago in Other More Like This
Good evening or whatever time it is when you read this, my fellow Pastanians. I’ve written quite a few guides on how to create a creepypasta OC that I hope you’ve found helpful. However, I haven’t written as much on how to write an actual creepypasta story. I know there are plenty of people who want to write stories with their own OC’s, those belonging to other people, or just about creepy stuff in general. So I’ll be breaking down three things you shouldn’t do and three things you should do for all ya’ll.
I’m gonna quote my good friend and fellow creepypasta designer :iconjch2897: on the first point:
“First off, do not overdo gore and violence. There might be readers who get squeamish around gore, but don't be pouring out blood and entrails every minute of the story and don't use it too much. That makes the story boring to read and that scare factor will wear thin quickly.
