Create your own spooky characters!

One of the most fun things about writing scary stories is thinking up spooky characters. And just like people, characters need NAMES! Below is a list of spooky characters P. J. Night is working on for future stories. What would you name them? Write your answers on the lines beneath the descriptions.


Character #1:
An old man who lives in a small shack near a haunted lake … who only comes out at night … when the moon is full!


Character #2:
A woman who can change her appearance at will. But no matter what she alters, she always has a small telltale mole on her cheek!


Character #3:
This character is a girl who is totally normal … except lately she's having a lot of nightmares. Then one day she dreams about a book. She
goes to the library to find the book she dreamed of, and instead finds a book written by someone with her very same name … more than fifty years ago! And the author photo looks JUST like her! The book tells the story of a girl who is totally normal … but then starts having a lot of nightmares. Then one day she dreams about a book.…


Character #4:
This character found a coin on the street and picked it up thinking it might be lucky. But not long after finding it, very strange things start happening. She decides to dispose of the coin … but the next day, it's back in her pocket!


Characters #5 and #6:
A brother and sister duo who are very mysterious indeed. Each night they go to sleep in their beds … but wake up every morning in a clearing in the woods behind their house!

A lifelong night owl,
often works furiously into the wee hours of the morning, writing down spooky tales and dreaming up new stories of the supernatural and otherworldly. Although P. J.'s whereabouts are unknown at this time, we suspect the author lives in a drafty, old mansion where the floorboards creak when no one is there and the flickering candlelight creates shadows that creep along the walls. We truly wish we could tell you more, but we've been sworn to keep P. J.'s identity a secret … and it's a secret we will take to our graves!

What's better than reading a really spooky story?
