Ok, so I've NEVER written a horror story before. But now I want to. Thing is, I have no idea how to write one! What elements do you put in? How do you make the story SO scary, that you can't read it by yourself, in the dark, late at night? HELP!

Make it mess with your mind, like, use footsteps, creaks, etc. to make it sound scary. I
mean, pee-your-pants horror isn't something anyone could achieve, but try things that are
normal sounds, like you would here, like this example...
Jen lifted the covers over her head as her door swung open by herself, and she remembered the small headstone she found by the willow in her backyard. Footsteps came into her room, the nothingness she felt had frightened her. But then, a little boy materialized. Holding a bloody knife and a creepy smile, he lifted up a head by the hair. Her mom.
Remember, subtlery is beauty. Watch Paranormal Activity to see what I mean.

Actually, the girl on YouTube by the name of Chrissy4jc made a jarring horror movie by the
name of Creature. Look her up, she'd be able to help you.

I read the scrolling text on the news channel as the weather man did his rehearsed
forecast. "Young Couple Murdered In Park" (which actually did happen years ago"
