It’s not that I don’t like writing about me as a kid or writing about my day or things that I see and hear that just tickle my fancy. I think of telling those kinds of stories as exercises.
To be honest, I hardly ever revisit those posts because when I get down to the bare bones of it, I enjoy writing about scary things, and dark things and negative things and the horrifying decisions people make.
To scratch that itch, I’ve started writing posts that will start going up for my 100 Days before Halloween project and do you know what? I’ve really been enjoying myself.
In fact I’ve enjoyed it so much I dug up some notes and prompts for horror and suspense stories and decided to do those along with my RDP challenges- which I enjoy because they do keep me sharp.
So, I’ve hit the CTRL-ALT-DEL keys ( or as my Dad used to call it, the Three Finger Salute ) and I guess I’m going to really drill down on what excites me as a writer.
