Frightening Friday - Creepypasta and Channel Zero #horror #paranormal

Creepypasta is quite popular with the young adult crowd - my teens included. On, you can submit your short horror/paranormal stories for (unpaid) publication, get reader feedback and ratings, explore writing prompts and participate in discussions. The site is a perfect venue for the budding horror/paranormal author and beyond. Their top stories have inspired the SyFy television series, Channel Zero, which just finished its third season. Channel Zero scored 98% on Rotten Tomatoes and if you haven't seen it yet, you're missing out. It's what American Horror Story used to be before it crashed and burned.

If you haven't checked out, I encourage you to do so!

I vaguely remember hearing about creepypasta before, but never knew what it was about. Now I do! :P
