4 Tips on How to Write a Scary Story

What makes a good scary story? Here’s a few pointers on how to write a scary story to start you off in the right direction.

1. Explore what scares you.

Start with one of your greatest fears—not to be confused with things generically considered scary. Whether it’s something trivial like clowns or something huge like losing a child, the best stories start with something personal.

So what scares you? Explore it for a while and take that fear to its darkest place. Now, how do you get your readers there with you?

2. Identify your main character

A strong main character in a horror draws readers into their experience and makes them feel the fear. This stands true whether you’re telling the story from the perspective of the protagonist or a true villain.

Personally, my favorite horror characters are often the ones can’t be trusted.

3. Work the suspense

Hitchcock wasn’t one of the greats for nothing. The soul of a good horror story isn’t the terrifying killer, it’s the fear of what the killer is going to do. A good horror story exposes just enough for the reader to know something isn’t right, but not enough for readers to know why until the end.
