Directions: Write a scary story (between 1,000-2,000 words) that uses elements of absence
(the unknown, the unconscious, the unseen, paranormal, unexplained occurrences, and the
unexpected) and elements of presence (helplessness, urgency, suspense, tension, intensity)
as you tell a tale of fear, a malevolent force, or a supernatural being.
Order of ideas: Your story should flow in a way that makes sense. It will most likely be
chronological or reverse-chronological, but you can incorporate flashbacks or repeat events
from different points of view to mix things up.
Story: Your story should include a beginning, rising action, a distinct climax, falling action and
resolution (ending.) There should be a mix of descriptive narration and dialogue. There should
be a buildup of suspense and intensity to suit the genre.
Some Suggestions to Consider:
*Internal Conflict: Your character may become their own worst enemy! The villain might lie within the characters
heart, soul, or mind! (Psychological fear is real in a scary story. Your villain might be a figment of the characters over-
active mind or fears)
*Surprise Twists: Try to make the story unpredictable by adding elements of surprise. Leave the reader in suspense
before showing the actual conflict, villain, or scary moment.
*Details: Use the powers of description and imagery (sensory details) to enhance the creepy/uncomfortable mood.
Dont hold back! Let the reader experience the physical sensations that accompany the characters fear along with
the vivid awareness of the senses.
*Techniques: Vary your writing style: Use action, conflict, internal dialogue, conversational dialogue, flashback,
foreshadowing, back story
