Six Word Horror Saturday

Well, last week wasn't enough to exhaust all the six word horrors I have in mind. Today I have a few more to attempt to scare you with. The rules: Something that chills. Just six words. Simple. Here's what I've got for today: The shadow moved. It heard me. The darkness was absolute. She screamed. … Continue reading Six Word Horror Saturday

Six Word Horror Saturday

I've had a few of these building up in my brain for the last few weeks, so I wanted to let them out to play in the sunshine (or moonlight). If you've not seen any of these before, it's quite straightforward: is it possible to write something chilling in just six words? Writing a full … Continue reading Six Word Horror Saturday

From my point of view, I've been away from this blog for several weeks. I made sure to load up several posts before, so at least the serial Saturday posts could continue!

Serial Saturday [Horror] – Nancy, Please #8

So, did I get annoyed by anything this week? You bet I did. It's got to be an age thing, or perhaps i'm just miserable.

It's a small thing, yes, but … Continue reading Serial Saturday [Horror] – Nancy, Please #8

How Long Should Your Story Be?

I started off writing several years ago with micro fiction, at under 250 words. At the time, it felt the most comfortable and safe way to go about things - did I want to invest time in something that people might hate? Also, I didn't think I had enough to say to make a story … Continue reading How Long Should Your Story Be?

Serial Saturday [Horror] – Nancy Please, #7

Well, I'd love to tell you I've done some editing things this week, but I haven't. I've been locked down at home with my family.
