So, I'm going to enter a scary story contest. Would you tell me what idea is best to go with? Please see details for more. c:

I'm enter a scary story contest but I have a couple ideas and I'm not sure which one to go with.

My first idea is that a girl has had horrible nightmares about a women she doesn't know screaming for her to run for her entire life. She then finds out she is adopted. She sees a picture of her mother and realizes it's the women from her dreams, she then goes to find her. She finds out she's in a mental institution. The thing she was running from was a demon following her family and it's been in her family for generations. And it would go on from there.
My other idea is, a girl is running in a forest she doesn't know what she is running from but, she's terrified. She keeps hearing things and she sees red eyes. She keeps running until she reaches a cave and she finally hides when something grabs her. Still not sure where else that could go.

And, finally my last idea is,that this girl wakes up tied to a tree and she has all these thoughts going in her head and she remembers parts of her day. She keeps hearing giggling and then parts of her childhood that she could never remember start coming back to her. Then her kidnapper walks out and, they are from her childhood.

Wow!! Great story ideas, you should write those in the contest and publish those stories on the Internet, like I've always done!

I like the first the most and last one isn't bad either. The second one is too mainstream and in a contest you have to stand out.

Each story has possibilities and interesting directions to it. Which story would I suggest. Hmmm... This will sound weird, but were I in your shoes, I would sit down with all three stories at once and listen to them (In my mind, not hearing voices like a crazy person). The story that I heard the loudest and clearest would be the one I worked with. Try it. It may or may not work for you. I dunno. I can only speak from my own experience. Different writers have different forms of inspiration.

That's awesome! Scary stories are the best! My recommendation is go to Creepypasta.com and read some high rated stories from there. This will give you inspiration and a good idea of what people are into and what makes a story so good. You have a good base for your 2 story ideas but try elaborating and also make sure it isn't cheesy, have twist ending. People love that! Good luck! :)
