I would like to talk about the concept of horror, and how it correlates with what humans and other animals experience. Let’s discuss what deserves to be labeled as a subcategory of horror. To me, it is not always about ghosts, ghouls, goblins, monsters, jump-scares, slasher moments, among others. To me, true horror revolves around the unknown, and for what we perceive to be real. When it comes to writing, I will admit that even I don’t know for certain if what my characters experience is real.
Quick message from our sponsor: “When somebody asks me what I really love to do I can answer that I love to create. I love the feeling when I make something with my own hands that have their own purpose. I hold a Masters in Architecture and I really like to make art in my free time and I am working as a graphic designer. If you are interested to make something for you I promise that I will enjoy and be creative 100% for your project.” Emily’s World of Design is a very reliable and fun company.

When it comes to the hints of horror, unreliable narration, foreshadowing, reverse character development (meaning that the people lose touch with themselves), lack of human description, subtle, repetitive themes, among others, are what constitute this different style of horror. I try my best to incorporate these in horror genre of my writing. Though my earlier works are all over the place, these vivid themes helped play a part in creating a semi-decent story of mine.
For “Source,” it will be the darkest story I have ever written, as stated before. I promise to not hold back on anything, as long as these moments of horror make sense to the plot. I’m working on making every chapter mean something, both to me and especially to you, as a reader. Also, I know it’s impossible for a story today to be completely unique, but the style can still be brand new.; dark and mysterious, but still able to grab your attention.
Be safe out there, and remember: not everything is what it seems.
