Meet Crappy Pasta
CrappyPasta was the sister website to the favored horror web site, CreepyPasta. Tales that didn’t fairly meet CreepyPasta’s editorial pointers have been typically given a house on CrappyPasta.
A few of the tales simply wanted slightly TLC, some have been dangerous, some have been soooo dangerous they have been entertaining, and others have been just about like WTH.
What I cherished in regards to the website is it was a wonderful alternative for writers to take their first step into writing. Additionaly, the location provided some beneficial suggestions for authors to enhance their work.

I take pleasure in a foolish story as a lot as the subsequent man, however partitions of textual content make it onerous to understand even dangerous posts.
Nevertheless, the location had over 4k posts and almost 35okay feedback, so clearly, folks loved the web site, and it was value saving. In order that’s the place Brian and I stepped in and determined to amass the location.
