Mississhippi's Madness

A place to share my creative pursuits

I wrote a new short story last night that Hubby says is rather creepy. I am very pleased. I just need to run it by a few other readers and then I’ll try and send it out. It is about spiders, very appropriate what with our encounter with a funnel-web a few weeks back. I was inspired as I was reading a message board about horror and what kind most people are writing nowadays. There is a lot of gore and splatter horror out there, and dark fantasy/psychological horror and not as much creepy, things in everyday life/ boogeyman type horror. It made me think about what makes my skin crawl and the story popped into my head.
