From past few days I am trying my hands On writing short horror story. And the inspiration behind that is the encouragement I got from my fellow writers on The Perfectly Imperfect Bunch. Though it’s a cap I know, not even near the actual feel of horror but still I had to start someday somewhere, so I started. It’s not perfect but still gives me goosebumps. The moment I write some horrific scene I get suspicious and don’t want to be alone the very moment.
I will tell you one incident where I was sitting alone in my room writing how a spooky shadowy figure appeared above the shoulder of a character and the same moment from the corner of my eyes I saw something moving in the bathroom from its ajar door. So I stopped writing and sat still for a while and looked in the same direction and then realised it was shadow of the door itself. But I used the experience in my story. Another example is when I was sitting in the hall and writing some incident when suddenly the stick standing by the chair slipped and fell and the sound shocked me. For once I felt that it was done on purpose and believe me I was alone at the home, but then saw the reason why it happened. There are many such examples where I myself got scared while writing and looked around as if there was someone else in the room. But then relaxed as I knew it was all my head as I was so engrossed in writing. I will continue writing tomorrow in the day time. Actually I wanted to end the story as I have the end point of the story in my mind but it seems the story is pulling itself lengthy as the new points or ideas crop up in my mind and I have to write them down. It’s scary but I am loving it as it’s my favourite genre and it’s first time that I am doing it myself. Hopefully I am able to Complete it.
