Ever since I started religiously reading Stephen King books a few years ago, I've been writing a new horror short every Halloween. With only three days left, I barely got this one done in time! It's called The Lock. Some events in this story are true, some are fabricated, but the whole thing really struck home for me. Probably because it's loosely based on my own childhood home. Writing this story creeped me out so much that I had to put some happy thoughts back into my life by watching The Office for several hours. That's never happened to me before—actually being afraid of what I was writing—so I hope you feel the same goosebumps.
