The Fun Of Reading Scary Stories Late At Night

The Scariest Story She Ever Read

The picture above is a comment made by reader Caitlin after she read the story ‘Legend Of The Real Life Chucky’.

No doubt about it, there’s something thrilling about reading scary stories late at night.

If you’re reading *the right* scary stories then you are spooked out of your mind, to where any little noise or shadow raises the hair on the back of your neck.

Reading Scary Story At NightYou are thrown into full paranoia mode, feeling like something might be in the darkness right outside your window (Slender Man).

Or maybe you even get the feeling that there is suddenly a Presence lurking somewhere in the house (Arabella).

Does this sound like a terrible experience? Then reading scary stories late at night isn’t for you. It might be better to wait until the safety of daylight to venture into the world of scary stories. And that’s okay.

But for us scary story junkies the spooked out feeling is the best part of the experience. Like when you get to the top of a roller coaster and then it suddenly drops, the terror is part of the fun.

Does that make us crazy? Maybe. Crazy awesome.

So here’s to you Caitlin and everybody else out there who likes to read scary stories late at night, I’m right there with you!

I Thought Ghosts Were Normal: Shoutout This Week To Beth K

Scary Ghost For Ghost StoriesThe shoutout this week is to Beth K, who commented on Facebook about the ‘Ghost Children Of The Train Tracks’ story:

“Ha! We had our own stories here in NC that I grew up with. I thought ghosts were normal.”

I have to admit that my first thought when reading that comment was how jealous I was that she grew up in a place where “ghosts were normal”.

How weird! It’s funny because as a kid I was terrified of ghosts, but at the same time I ate up ghost stories like they were candy. I had even tried to conjure up ghosts a couple of times.

Scared Face Scary StoriesWhat the hell would I have done if I’d saw one? Have a heart attack …or maybe be so thrilled that I would never be the same afterwards (probably both).

My friends and I always felt that ghosts were real but there was never any proof. We wanted proof desperately, but were scared of actually getting the proof at the same time.

I am trying to imagine what it would be like to grow up thinking ghosts were just another part of the neighborhood.

What about you…would you rather grow up thinking ghosts are normal or would that be too scary?
