Why Was Killing the Normal?

Posted on May 28, 2019 at 4:25 PM Comments comments (0)

You ever watch or read a western where a guy looks at another guy wrong and before you know it one of them’s dead? Or a guy rides into town and his sole mission is to kill as many men as he can or kill the fastest gunslinger in town? Why? Why is this normal? Just why exactly was killing as normal as waking up in the morning?

Can A Writer Not Be A Reader?

Posted on May 28, 2019 at 3:40 PM Comments comments (0)

They have nothing to do with one another. You don’t need to be a reader in order to be a writer because while they share the common trait of books and literature it is a reader that needs a writer but not the other way around. Readers who love certain writers wait for their favorite writer to write the next book of their favorite series. A writer doesn’t need to wait for a reader, they hope a reader jumps onto their writing. A writer should be appreciative that a re...

Some are good and some are bad, some interact and some are just images reliving their past experiences and cannot interact. So what exactly is the difference between a residual haunting and an intelligent haunting? Well my guest, the operator of the My Haunted Salem site on tumblr is here to explain the ...

Posted on April 10, 2019 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

You can’t break the rules of poetry because technically their aren’t any. I’ll wait while you read that again and calm down..go on, relax and calm down. You good? Okay. Now what I mean by there are no rules is just that. There aren’t any list of rules that state how poetry has to be or what it should and should not have. Sure there’s tons of people and sites who have come up with lists of their own of rules of poetry but these by definition are the...

Poetry Without Emotion

Posted on April 10, 2019 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Poetry. It is a way of expression, a way with words, a way in which a person writes down their feelings and emotions. However, some may be surprised to know that poetry doesn’t always have to be about or need to involve emotion. Now I know what you’re thinking, but poetry is almost all emotion, it’s a person putting everything they are feeling onto paper pouring their heart out. Yes, in a way you’d be right but only to an extent. Nothing says poetry has ...

Horror: It's Not Always About Blood, Guts and Death Count

Posted on January 28, 2019 at 6:45 PM Comments comments (0)

What makes horror great? Well before we get into that let's go over what is essential but not always necessary when it comes to horror. A scare factor, suspense, fear, blood, guts, evil, darkness, and death. These are just a few of the many words and feelings that attribute to horror but they are the basic ones that are usually seen. However, two three of these tend to always be the focus when they don't need to be. When making horror whether it's a novel, video...

Does the Horror Genre Need Blood To Scare?

Posted on October 8, 2018 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

You’re probably thinking yes but now your thinking about the last horror movie you saw and realized it had no blood in it at all. Horror doesn’t need blood to win people over or catch their attentions but it is used as an effect because it is so associated and common in horror that it’s just naturally assumed that horror has to have blood but it really doesn’t. Sure, vampire novels and movies need blood because vampires are all about bloo...

Forced Rhyme Leaving the Station

Posted on April 10, 2018 at 3:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Forced Rhyme, It can mainly be found in poetry and in song lyrics. It’s when a poet/songwriter rhymes a word with another but the word seems contrived, forced and has little to do with what the poem/song is about or doesn’t connect to the sentence or word. Is forced rhyme bad? In my opinion yes, it means your not all that creative or clever enough to come up with words to fit what your writing and it makes you look amateurish, unless of course you ar...

Many will agree and I too agree with this notion. Psycho is a great film and was quite controversial during it’s time for it’s sexual references, violence and ending subject matter.
