A-Z Challenge: H Day!



Every. Single. Day. I scan my brain, trying to come up with writing words for the next day's blog post. Every day I fail. Today is H. I couldn't think of one. And my friends? They came up with TONS. TONS of H words that should have been so obvious to me and weren't.

I'm concerned.

Hero, heroine, Hero's journey, horror, humor. Yeah, I couldn't think of any of those.

I'm choosing horror because I'm just starting a horror story and I'm massively overwhelmed. But I have a fabulous friend, Mercedes, who writes horror and she wrote a whole guest post on it. Check it out here :)

She says it better than I ever could. And now, I am embarking on my horror journey and praying I don't give myself horrible nightmares every night!

  1. haha! HORROR. I. LOVE. HORROR! I figure if it's any good - it WILL give me nightmares. I'm finishing up a pretty scary manuscript right now. It's been a blast to write. Good luck with your horror. :) And thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday. I'm now a new follower of your blog. Nice to meet you.

  2. I've always wanted to write a (mild) horror story, but I'm always afraid that I'll scare myself.

  4. The thought of writing horror horrifies me. I'm such a sissy, but I'm amazed at those who manage it.

  5. I write a lot of horror stories myself, mostly bizarro stuff, no gore. And Mercedes is a facebook friend! Small world, eh?

  7. I started writing my letters in February (on one of my A to Z blogs) so I could write as inspired - less stress.

    ck out Pen of The Damned for excellent horror. These folks top the charts - several well read (published) authors. I am still dabbling in the sandbox of horror...

    today's inspiration

    Nice to meet you btw. Best with the writing
