Hello there! My name is Lilli and I am one of your regular Horror Newsletter Editors. Thanks for reading and I appreciate any comments or suggestions.
For as long as I can remember I've been excited about paranormal stories. I'm not sure what the attraction is; the language, descriptions, the ghosts, I'm just not sure. One thing I know for sure is that when done well, a haunted story can be so creepy it gives horror lovers the willies.
If you want to write a terrifying haunted location story, consider adding some of these elements to the mix.
A Haunted Place (or person)
With a little research, a writer can find loads of information about haunted places in their own towns/cities. This is a good place to start! After gathering some history, write a story about an actual location or create one of your own!
What is the dark history of the place?
Are they supernatural, alien, and/or human?
Balance the Scares
Every horror story needs some scare, but balance them out, let the reader be surprised when they pop up.
Paranormal Detection Equipment
Only if needed to help move the story and is a necessary prop. If you use these, be sure to know the correct terms and usage of each item.
I mean, everything bad happens at night, right? Don't forget to mention the climate which can be very helpful in setting the scene.
