I write psychological thrillers.

Recently, I found several hashtags that brought forth a wealth of information for my psyche obsession. If you, too, write about things that go bump in the dark, whether the bump is real or in the mind of your protagonist, I recommend spending a bit of time on Twitter.



Here is a list of some of what messes with the minds of our twitter brothers and sisters:

Cards against humanity played at midnight in a creepy victorian attic

Swarms of insects or the sound of swarming insects in the dark


Black buttons for eyes

Someone standing stock still outside my window

Not being able to see what is under me when swimming

My best friend whispering to no one when we are supposed to be asleep

Being mauled by a rabid animal

Ouija boards

Teenagers circling me on an abandoned street

Skin rot

Someone saying, “I love you,” with a knife against my throat

Something happening to my kids

Internet scammers

Body jumping spirits


Over one hour on Twitter, I wrote so many story ideas into my story journal that my hand was cramping. If you are struggling with writer’s block, or if you just want to spice things up a bit in your current WIP, here are a few hashtags to get your creative juices flowing:




Are there others that I should know about? Drop your recommendations in the comments.

I am a new author who struggles every day to balance my life as an educator and my life as a writer. I know how hard it is to stay positive, to learn, and to give back to those who give but, like you, I want it and so I move forward. Baby steps. I hope you will join me on this amazing journey. We are stronger together!
