On Writing Horror


Time to get back to some writer stuff. Here’s an interesting take on writing horror. I’m just the opposite – like to read it, hate to write it. I go for the supernatural and “dark side of human nature” stuff more than the slasher stuff, because I have a weak stomach (just told you something new about myself there, friends). I can’t be 100 percent, this appears to be the first post on this blog. Just in case I’m right, why not take a second and welcome Ryan to the blogosphere?

  1. I have at least one older short story that I’ve not published, even to the blog, on account of it sorta creeps me out. (I also suspect it’s juvenile darkness, but it still creeps me out.)

      Lol, I know what you mean.

      I have several drafts that will never see the light of day. I keep them because there’s always a chance that I might be able to generate an idea from them, or rework them.

      If I ever become successful, I’ll probably shred them to make sure they don’t end up in my papers when I’m dead.
