The Perils of Writing Horror
Writing horror is something that comes natural to me because I enjoy the genre so much. From the time I was old enough to tell stories my main characters seemed to be ghost, witches, wizards and all things fantasy and supernatural. Although I enjoy writing horror I do not like gore at all. I think gore is brainless. I want a good old fashioned ghost story that usually involves a spooky old house or some other historic structure to hold my attention. Because I’m a very descriptive writer--my book translated very well into a movie. I think in order to have a good horror story you must have a good setting and description is a big part of it. There also has to be a mood set from the very start. Each chapter must make the reader what to continue on to the next. Mystery is a big part of writing horror. My advice is simple. Don’t tell the reader everything all at once, show the reader the setting, be original in your ideas, and don’t drown your audience in gore. You can read more about the movie and book at
