As a writer, I can tell you for sure that it’s hard to write a story, and even harder to write a good story.

Perhaps the hardest thing of all is to write a short story, because finding your punch in just a few words can be more than a small challenge.

These 14 people have risen to that challenge, though, at least with these short – but terrifying – little horror vignettes.

14. When Death is afraid…

It might be time to get nervous.

You’ve gotta save your own neck sometimes.

You know exactly how much time you have left – can you change anything?

Loose lips, robot lady.

Don’t be afraid.

Like, off the charts.

3. Another one that really makes you think.

I’m turning over all of the possibilities in my mind.

2. I love it when my brain just takes care of things.

Oh, wait…that’s not….

1. Nope. Don’t like that.

Space freaks me out.

I’m totally creeped out! Argh!
