Years ago I wrote a blog about a scam in which con artists call people’s homes and pretend to be a grandson or other relative to try to trick them into giving money. Well, yesterday it happened again. Someone called my house pretending to be my nephew and asking for my mother. I was about to mow the lawn when the call came. The caller ID showed an “Unknown caller” display with an unfamiliar number with an unfamiliar area code. I answered and the caller said, “Hello, Grandma [My mom’s name]! It’s me!” Immediately warning sirens went off due to the fact that I had encountered this scam before, the voice was definitely not my nephew (my mother’s only grandchild), my actual nephew never called my mom “Grandma [Mom’s first name]”, and, o…Read more >
This is another simulcast blog in that I'm posting it on three different wikis. You know how people write "Lost Episode" pastas about children's shows? Don't worry, this isn't one of them. This is just to talk about something which shows that from time to time there actually is a bizarre episode of a children's show. Years ago there was a show called Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! that was meant for preschoolers, and an episode called "Everything's Coming Up Wubbzy" had loneliness, corrupt scientific experimentation, radical hypnotism, and the loss of identity. You think I'm kidding? Here's the wikia page for it- https://wubbzy.wikia.com/wiki/Everything%27s_Coming_Up_Wubbzy The plot is one of the characters makes a helmet that can make whoever we…Read more >
You go on YouTube and there are all these videos which claim to catch actual ghosts on camera. I’m usually skeptical because a lot of things can be faked. However, I saw these videos and, wow, let me tell you, I really can’t deny the reality of what I saw. Take a look and judge for yourself.
The first one occurs during this video, with the part in question occurring from 2:35-3:11. The filmmaker is doing some urban exploring in an area apparently noted for sightings of a ghost. As he passes a power plant he sees something. At 2:43 you can hear him stop talking and then begin breathing heavily, almost crying, at the frightening specter he sees before him.
The second one is during this video, with the part in question occurring from 37:1…Read more >
Something weird happened to me a few days ago. My aunt and I went to a local Lee's (a fried chicken restaurant similar to Kentucky Fried Chicken) and a guy behind the counter saw me and asked, "Hey, is that a blast from the past?" I didn't know what he was talking about, so after a confused pause I replied, "Maybe." I thought that maybe he was making a comment about my clothing, so I made a lighthearted joke. I turned my attention to the menu, but then he came into the main area and stood close to me. I looked at him and he finally asked, "April, right?" I told him, "No, my name's Kara," and he told me, "Oh, you look like a girl I used to work with!" He told me that I had a look-alike in a nearby town and added, "When you said, 'Maybe,' I …Read more >
I came across this blog I posted to the Creepypasta Wiki on October 5, 2014 and decided to post it here as well. I hope you enjoy!
I know that posting this might inspire someone to write a really bad pasta, but I think this is the funniest harvest/autumn story of the past few years. You know how corn mazes are popular this time of year? Well, sometime in the fall of 2011 a family trying to get through a corn maze panicked and called 911 (the American emergency system phone number). When the rescuers came it turned out that the family was only something like 10-15 feet (3-4.5 meters, if my calculations are right) away from the exit. If you don't believe me you can investigate yourself. I try not to be judgmental or uppity since I think we'v…Read more >
A dozen hours ago, Jay and myself have enabled and customized a system of achievements. Badges are still WiP, and will only start counting from now, but it'll be easy to catch up.
And that's pretty much all.
Have a blast, ya'll!Read more >
First there's a quick note- This will be my first blog simulcast on the Creepypasta Wiki and Jay's Horror Network wiki. Excitement! :-D
Last night I was watching some videos on my iPad. I decided to search "Raidra creepypasta" in the off-hand chance someone had narrated another one of my stories, and someone had! Creeparoni had just done a narration of "The Melon Head Illustration". :-D I always feel excited and honored when someone narrates one of my stories. This morning I was watching a compilation of contestants on talent shows performing "Chandelier" by Sia. Most of them were on international versions of The Voice, and I realized that's what it feels like when someone narrates one of your pastas- it feels like when one of the judg…Read more >
I just wanted to let everyone know that I have been put on a new medicine, and I am seeing some good improvement. I can hopefully come back in the near future. Thanks so much for continuing to work on the site.

I got to be one of the first interviews on a new site!
We talk about how I got into writing, my current projects, and the writing process in general.Read more >
Hola, mi amigos! Hope you're all doing well. I'll cut to the chase: we're having a writing contest based on horror villains. We are collaborating with the Villains Wiki to host a competition. We also have help from the Facebook groups Creative Writers and Fiction Writing. Here's the deal:
- Each contestant will be given a villain to write a short story about. It must be between fifteen hundred and twenty-five hundred words.
- Each story must be a horror story (dark humor and other darkened genres will be accepted).
- Each story must meet basic grammar, spelling, and other writing guidelines.
- Stories can be NSFW, but they can not involve graphic rape or pedophilia.
- If your story is deemed to be below our quality standards, it will be deleted at which …

Summer vacations coming up, which only means one thing...
Sadly, no. What it really means is that my laptop is going to be taken by the school.
So for an amount of time I will be offline. I can try to help and edit as much as I can, or maybe I'll get a new laptop. But for a little I'm not gonna be here. I'm not saying that I'm not coming back - but for about 3 months I'll be on only a little.
But... before I go I will try to be active alot. And I've come up with a sort of competition.
I found this, an old 19th century vampire novel. But - it is incomplete. I was thinking we could see who could write the best ending as an alternate ending to "Fragment of a Novel" (Which is the actual name). Please tell me if you like the idea.Read more >
I just wanted to say please clean up any red links as your surfing around. Don't delete any templates unless it's obviously only for something on CPW like Freestyle Contest or something, but don't delete anything that you don't know what it is. I really just want all the red links removed from the pages. I don't care if anything replaces them or if they float out there in the abyss of THN forever. Just do whatever you feel like doing, but if you're on a page, please consider cleaning it of red links or nonexistent categories. Thanks. Hope you're all doing well. Still up for any suggestions if anyone has any. Peese out.

I don't have any presence on social media, but if any of you do, please spread the word and drop the main page link anywhere and everywhere. I know we still have work to do, but I wanna go ahead and get some influx. Even if they just come and join chat. We could get lucky and find some contributors too. Thanks.
Oh, and any ideas on how to get the site out there are welcome. I know Banning offered to tweet us and Facebook us once I get those things figured out.Read more >
I'm new here. I've only ever been on the creepypasta wiki, so I don't really know what I'm doing. If yall have any tips, it'd be greatly appreciated.
