Has anyone seen the new Chiller channel? I love it! I have been waiting for a horror network for the longest time. They show Alfred Hitchcock and Night Gallery (Twilight Zone's dark twin). I have always loved those shows; especially Hitchcock, he's my hero! :*) I am completely cheating on the Sci-fi Channel. Shh, don't tell Sci-fi!
I think what draws me most to horror is the feeling it gives me in the pit of my stomach, or on the back of my neck. I have always loved to scare people, or on rare occasions to be frightened myself, but mostly the former.
As a writer, I plan to have the masses running away in sheer terror. I want them to cringe at my name; uh wait, Bush has that effect, so let me rephrase that. I want to make people look under their beds at night, and sleep with the lights on. I think as writers, we live our genres, we know them inside and out. We live and breathe what we love. Do you know why you write in the genre you do?
