All About Horror

Last evening, I attended the Inspiring Screams: Horror Writing workshop at the main branch of the Guelph Public Library.

Writer and teacher Erik Mortenson provided two hours chock full of advice about the horror genre. While this is not my genre, or even one I would consider, I welcomed many of his suggestions and will try to incorporate them into my writing.

Food for thought...
  • Fear inspires the most action. 
  • Write about what scares you the most.
  • Effective horror stories gets under people's skins.
  • The unknown makes us feel uncomfortable.
