I've done this more than a few times. I'd finish something and be proud of it, then re-read it to get a feeling on how people would react to it. I'd finish reading, sit back, and think "Geez, what kind of twisted mind was able to think up something like this?"

.....

"Oh, right. Me."

I've done it a few times, usually it happens if I am really in synch with a character and 'in the moment'. I've had a few lines that I felt were really creepy and then later came back and felt a lot more 'meh' about them. I think its harder to be creeped out by situations you are writing about since you know all the changes that went into them, you get used to the actions or imagery.

I think its similar to people that work in haunted attractions, given the right lighting and noises and effects you can scare someone, maybe even yourself for a little bit, but knowing that Bob the janitor is actually the guy in the mask kinda kills the suspense.

I think the reverse happens for me. I think of something that would creep me out, then write it out while I'm in that mindset.

I've come close to making myself cry, though.

I creep myself out a little sometimes but mostly I'll just feel emotionally drained after I write. Usually if I'm writing a fight or a death.
