Its October, and that means Im in Halloween mode!!
Im feeling like i want to put together some scary short stories too, I wrote one based on my creepy experience a few months ago and am looking to hear your spooky anecdotes if you want to share, maybe I'll turn them into a story too. - I love to find inspiration in little things, local stories, that kind of thing. Often its transformed totally, but i think having that grounding makes it more creepy.
My creepy moment - I woke up in the middle of the night to a voice saying "I cant hear you, turn on the light." Needless to say, I did not turn on the light! just cuddled down in my blankets lol
Will share anything I write here too! (or via PM if its a but beyond forum appropriateness - most of my stuff ends at PG-13 anyway)

Well, there's a story near where I live in northern michigan. There's this huge tree along the road with hundreds - if not thousands - of shoes in its branches and all around it. Nicknamed "The Shoe Tree", the story goes that some sights try to tell you they are either shoes of lost or dead travelers or even from missing children, that some strange occurrence happens near these trees... :)
Dare to dream - I grew up in the Eastern upper peninsula! There are a few shoe trees around Michigan, they all follow the same story, a serial killer, The Walled Lake Child Killer, hung the shoes of his victims in the trees. It turned into such a widespread story that people genuinely thought it was real and Walled Lake had to release a statement that it wasn't!
There's some speculation it may have been from related to the disappearance of 4 children over a year but none of them had any connection to Walled Lake
Northern Michigan has a couple other weird ones like that, I don't remember as many details off the top of my head so I'd have to look into them again but there's some weird paranormal/psycholigical/creepy history in the area.
I used to share a small cottage with a roommate. She knew that I often came home for lunch on my hour break. I got home one night after work and she asked if I had stopped by at lunch time. She told me that she was in her room and had heard the front door close. Then she heard footsteps going into my bedroom, with the bedroom door closing. She called out but I never replied. I hadn't come home at lunch that day.
I live in a 100+ year old remodeled schoolhouse.
Friend visited a few years back, and brought her small child with her. She set up a video monitor and had him asleep in the spare room. We were out on the couch, watching TV, and while the kid's back was to us, we saw a small hand go over the monitor/video. She went to bed at that point. In the morning, she mentioned that she felt something tickling her feet all night long.
There's also all of the small things that go "missing" randomly throughout the house only to be found later in very strange spots. Places that my partner and I both know had not only been checked thoroughly several times, but also just odd for whatever it was that was missing.
