I recently moved to a new haunt with the Final Guy, which inspired me to write this short listicle:

  • Generally disruptive
  • Mostly active at night
  • Skittish
  • Territorial
  • Pale as f@%$
  • Moves your furniture around at random
  • Prefers dark places and low temperatures

  • Attracted to TV and other electronic devices
  • Makes spooky noises when upset
  • Harasses your pets**
  • Scared of cameras
  • Hates being sprinkled with salt
  • Will steal your blanket at 3 in the morning
  • Often refuses to leave the house

**With cuddles.

This raw, bare-bones approach to storytelling really lends itself to horror; it can work either by delivering a short, sharp shock, or by leaving your imagination to fill in the darkest gaps.

I’ve been dreaming up some of my own six-word horror stories, and here are (appropriately) six of them: Continue reading “Six-Word Scares”
