My Top 5 Two-Sentence Horror Stories

At least according to Reddit.

Two Sentence Horror Stories

I’ve been somewhat addicted to writing two-sentence horror stories over the past couple years. I don’t even spend time trying to come up with them though. They just pop into my head (usually when I’m half asleep) and I make a note of them if I’m not too tired, in which case they disappear into the abyss, never to return. I’ve only had a couple blow up where people really liked them, but I enjoy writing even the ones that are duds.

Below, I’ll share some of my best stories, which I’ve mainly published on the subreddit r/TwoSentenceHorror (and you can find my rejected stories at r/TwoSentenceRejects).

For the record, I’m not very good at Reddit in general, but I still find a way to enjoy it.
