How come the old Boothworld pasta(s) have undergone such a sudden surge in popularity as of recent? I looked on the wiki's Popular Pages insight today, and this page had about 21,000 views, while the wiki's home page had around 15-16,000. Did a popular YouTuber/narrator make a video on it, or something? Did the original Reddit post blow up again?
I'm not complaining, mind you, just a little curious.Read more >
As a seasoned user, I like to check up on current trends regarding new user uploads. Mistakes are oft made as per human norm, so I’d like to jot down a few quick tips that’ll help your browsing and writing experience so much easier.
0) Users with colored usernames are staff, you can ask them for help on anything. However, users with lots of edits (500-1000) are often regulars and may be able to help you too.
1) You can click on genre tags to read what they’re used for. This will help you avoid putting inapplicable ones on your story or deciding how to categorize.
2) When editing, always switch to Source mode. You can view what your pasta looks like on desktop pr mobile using the Preview buttons on the right side.
3) Yellow Links are clickable.…Read more >
There is a certain quality that's shared by the stories that scare me the most. The problem is that this quality is difficult as hell to describe. It's kind of a "darkness beyond language." I'm not sure if I could say it better than that.
Does anybody else have a feeling like this? Can anyone else relate to this?Read more >
Writing contests are a fun way for people to learn how to improve and practice their writing. Therefore, I believe that the wiki should have more writing contests. Although we already do hold writing contests on the wiki, I think doing them more regularly is a good idea.Read more >
The 'Bleedverse' is the shared universe in which all horror stories I've written take place. In this document, I'm going to explain what exactly "clowns" are in this setting. In real life, clowns are just funny (or scary) guys in makeup. While many clowns in the Bleedverse are like that, others are something else entirely.
I remain just one thing, and one thing only, and that is a clown. It places me on a far higher plane than any politician. - Charlie Chaplin
In the Bleedverse, Clowns are an otherworldly race of extra-dimensional beings from a realm of existence separate for our own. This dimension is simply known as "Clown World" by the very few humans who've been able to document it. The clowns themselves have no name for their own realit…

I was orginnally here when I tried to post some crappy fan fics. My writing has improved over a while. I'm hoping to post much better stories. My last one was an attempt at something realistic but later I plan on making more paranormal sort of stories.Read more >
I recently noticed new users who are uploading and editing onsite and in discussions aren't showing the edit counts on their profile. Is this a glitch, has anyone else noticed?Read more >
Hey, I'm trying to connect with other people, but I have no idea what I need to do. But, I'd love to be free. I need help.Read more >
It's been months of the coronavirus global crisis undertake. Coronavirus, coronavirus, coronavirus. Everywhere on the internet, at school, at home, don't go outside, wear a mask, wash your hands 100 times a day, lock your windows, people are dieing. We. Are. All. Doomed. And what do I about this? Well, yes I follow the law and I would consider myself hygeinic but I feel like my life depends on the world. I don't worry about petty things like most teenagers do like popularity on social media, how they look, their stupid crushes and blah, blah, blah. I worry about the world ending. I've come up with some theories. Maybe everyone will die of the Coronavirus or perhaps the world will warm up until it sets on fire and we all burn to death. And…Read more >
I'm seeing a lot of people try to justify bad or lazily written stories with statements like, "I just wrote it because I was bored," or "This was just" this or "only" that. If that's the case for the story you wrote, great. None of that means you should post what you wrote to the wiki.
What you post in a proper wiki article, as opposed to the Writer's Workshop, should be the best representation of your work that you can create at that moment. A story that's ready for a permanent spot on the wiki will have taken effort to create, and probably at least a couple of drafts. Devaluing your own work with statements like the ones I've mentioned is a great way to keep others from caring about it. If someone comments on your story with suggesti…Read more >
