As usual, please have someone look over your story before you turn it in. If you need someone to peer-edit, just post in here saying that you do. Then, have someone send you a pm and you guys can exchange stories. I'm available for peer-editing but I'm gonna be a judge too, so ... yeah.
Also, make sure it is neat enough for publishing; i.e. no silly typos, fundamental grammar and syntax etc.

but a question(s):
1) should it be real or fake? or both?
Fiction or non-fiction is welcome. It just has to be horror themed.
2) what if 7000 words cannot contain the story?
Trust me, 7k words is a lot for a short story. If you exceed 7k, then you need to either cut back a ton of material, work on something new, or post an excerpt.
3) by horror, you mean, Slenderman, or spiders?
I'd avoid Slenderman and Creepypasta. Spiders aren't "horror-ful," they are more just creepy. Aim for something that will give you nightmares.
