I always find myself listening to short horror stories on youtube when I am just hanging out or cleaning around the house. It’s always nice to have something to listen to, and I prefer something like a scary story to keep me on edge and keep me interested in the plot. Channels, like Let’s Read, inspired me to read my own horror story. I wanted to accomplish what these youtube channels do, just read a story with some subtle creepy background music. I wanted to incorporate a good amount of sound effects that would enhance the story being told. Ultimately I had fun with this project but next time I would try to get somebody else to help me tell the story instead of trying to change my voice using the audio editing software. When I changed my voice for some parts of the story, I didn’t particularly like how it sounded. I enjoyed adding sound effects to keep the story intriguing. I hoped the window scratching wasn’t unbearable to listen to so I made sure to turn that volume down by a lot, I hope it’s creepy but still tolerable. Overall, I hope you enjoyed my story if you listened, and I hope I accomplished creeping you out a little.
