Stonehenge Post: Hidden Horrors and Disappointing Reveals

Stonehenge 2I have a new post up today on my writing group blog, about learning from a writing device that doesn’t work.  I’m not usually a reader of horror because I don’t like being disturbed…but there is one way to tell a horrible story that ends up not bothering me.  Though that’s not at all what the author intended!  Come by and read the post, and then let me know if this is just me, or if you have the same experience with Hidden Horrors…

    It’s not just you – I totally “get” where you’re coming from. A horror in the reader’s imagination would most likely be much worse than what the impersonal third party writer imagines as horrible. Plus, the suspense isn’t the same as when something really bad is anticipated and talked about by the characters, so the reader can anticipate it, too. Good insights.
