This week was definitely a learning experience for me. Having never trying to write a horror story before, I found myself in a difficult place while doing the main part of this week’s assignment. I’m not a huge fan of horror in the first place. Suspenseful movies rarely scare me and I refuse to watch anything with heavy gore (except for The Evil Dead 2). However, I learned that a great part of learning to create horror is understanding atmosphere and what it is that truly frightens people. Usually, that means the supernatural or things that are simply beyond one’s control. Perhaps even a sense of helplessness.
But on the bright side, the easier side of this week was setting up all of the social media accounts (I had like half of them already set up). Next week, I’d like to try my hand at better understanding how to write whatever story we have to next. Other than that, this has been a treat so far and I look forward to the rest.
