I love horror stories. I love watching horror movies, getting into the Halloween spirit, and learning about new and creepy mythology. I hate haunted houses, but no horror-loving fool can be perfect. That being said, here’s 10 things writers think about when writing horror stories.

  1. I’m going to be like Mary Shelley
  2. It was a dark and stormy night… no, no, too cliche.
  3. WHAT’S BEHIND YOU? Oh, it’s just my reflection.
  4. Oh. Just got shivers from my own writing.
  5. Now, how many of my characters should I let live?
  6. Stephen King, eat your heart out. Wait, no, don’t do that. That’s gross.
  7. I need more gore. No, less gore. Yeah, definitely less is more.
  8. WHAT’S BEHIND ME? Oh, it’s still my reflection.
  9. I’m winning all the jump-scare awards.
  10. I’m sleeping with the lights on tonight.
